Roll over


My cat, Marvin is a rather large ginger and white cat who arrived at our home in 2005 from the local cat rescue charity.  I have always enjoyed  sketching my cats over the years so I thought I'd keep a Marvin sketchbook. He always prefers lying stretched out - I think his belly is too fat for curling up - he is on a strict diet, but it's not making any difference. You may have noticed him cropping up before. I thought I'd share these with you, I'm sure he'll crop up again.

Marvin is such a handsome cat and I really like your sketches of him. Thanks for your comment on my blog. BfN. Lesley

What a handsome boy! My Thomas likes to lie with his belly showing like that and I like to think that he feels safe here otherwise he wouldn't lie in that way. They are so trusting aren't they?

Lovely post as always.

Marigold Jam is right......... they only behave like that when they feel totally secure...... I think Marvin is a wonderful looking cat! I have "Pickle".... Lounge Lizard EXTRAORDINAIRE..... (He is a beautiful tabby "Tom"). He is also asleep (quelle surprise!) downstairs on the settee..............
