Marvelous, Mes and Mommy learns patience

Mes was enjoying my retirement and cavorting with Eric, Flynn, GJ, Boomer, Nerissa, Ellie, Sammy, Minko, Fiona and many other rainbow cats when mes gotted a message....
Nellie Bellie...Oh Nellie Bellie, I need you Nellie.....
It was my Mommy! Mommy never calls mes!!! Even when mes was there below! Mes excused myself and went to sees her. She was in her office at work! Mes has never been there before...It smelled funny...no animals!

Mes here Mommy! mes purred.
 Mommy picked mes up  and cuddled mes. Mes let her...but yous should knows mes does not likes it furry much.

Nellie, Mommy said, I am worried about Marvelous. He was supposed to start his long trip from Iran to Canada yesterday and be here today, but the person who is bringing him is staying in Iran for another 2 weeks and won't be bringing him until August 14th! I can't go and see him like you can, can you please go and see how he is doing and let him know that I am missing him.

Mommy, mes said, yous NOT even meeted him yet! How can yous be missing somebody yous not meeted? 

I already have him in my heart Nellie darling, just like you and you know how much I miss you!

Well, mes knows Mommy misses mes lots and lots, I visits her in her dreams all the time and there has been NO cats in the house to helps her.

Mes flashed out and popped into Marvelous' room.

Meow! said Marvelous. I am so very happy to see you Queen Penelope! I get awful lonely in this barren little room. I am also very sad.

Oh! Marvelous! mes said as mes touched his nose with mine and then rubbed up against him, Mes sorry mes has not come by every day. Mes will until yous gets to Mommy! 

Queen Penelope, That would be very kindly of you! I would appreciate it so very much! He gave me a tentative smile.
Wes lay down on his scrappy little blanket and mes licked his ears and eyes. Are yous feeling better dear heart? How is your asthma? 

Marvelous sighed a big sigh, Mes, er I feel fine Queen Penelope, but my heart is sore that I will not be seeing my new Mother today. I was so happy to know that I was going to have my own home and my own Mother and.....(sob)...now I feel that it may NEVER happen! It has been forever waiting to go.

Oh Marv! mes purred, 2 weeks is only 14 days! And Today is the first one of those days! When today is over, it will bes 13 and when that day is over, it will only bes 12! and before yous knows it,  yous will be loaded into a PTU and....

Excuse me Queen Penelope! PTU! What is this PTU? Is it scary? Is is big? Is it small? 

Marvelous, mes said sternly, Yous interrupted mes! Yous should NOT interrupt when mes is talking! 
But mes knows yous is excited...A PTU is a personal transportation unit. It is a little box with bars that peoples puts yous in to goes places. They is small and it feels like yous is in your own purrsonal cave. It is like this room that yous lives in only small. Yous can't stand up in it.

Oh, Marvelous said weakly. It is like what they brought me here in and what they put me in to go and visit the Doctor.

Yes! Mes said, just like that! 

Will you come in the PTU with me on my trip? Will your friends that stop by to visit me come on my trip too? I am quite scared.

Marv darling, Angel Sammy who comes and sees yous almost every day and Flynn and Eric and me will be with yous. Do not worry little friend. Yous is already loved by more people than you can imagine. Just wait, when yous start to blogs! Yous will has hundreds and hundreds of peoples and cats and dogs yous will bes furrends with!

Thank you Queen Penelope. You always make me feel better.  You know exactly what to say to make my fears disappear! I am not afraid any more. Can you go and tell out Mother that I am doing well, even though I am disappointed I am not going to be with her tonight and that my journey to her will begin in 12 days...that is right, it is only 12 days until I start!

Yes darling boy. Only 12 days and tomorrow, it will be 11 until you start your journey and 13 until you get to Mommy! Marvelous, in the words of this human mes has meeted over the bridge, whose name is Rumi, 

Oh! You are so right Queen Penelope! Rumi has such wise words. I shall meditate on them. Will you come back today?

Of course! Mes knows that Sammy is on his way right now, but mes must goes and sees our Mommy and lets her know that yous is marvelous and yous is patient! And that yous foresees that when yous gets to her, all the waiting will have been worth it!
Now mes must goes and tells Mommy that yous is patient and KNOWS that yous will bes there soon! Bye Bye!

Wes touched noses and mes flashed back to Mommy.
When mes told her, she was a little less sad. Mes told her to meditate on Rumi too! She needs to learn PATIENCE!

  5. Oh Queen Nellie dear, your peep must be so relieved that you are there to visit Marvellous and provide him with such sage words and comfort. 13 days will pass in a twinkling of an eye, and your peep and Marvellous will be united together. Till then, the power of love will be both the messenger and the bond between them whilst apart.

  13. Waiting is the hardest part ... but anything worth having is well worth the wait. You're such a sweet girl, Nellie. We miss you!

  14. You are such a darling, Nellie. Waiting is hard but it will be so worthwhile.

  15. Nellie, we know you will take good care of Marvin until he is safely with your mom. :)

  16. Nellie, you are the bestest and we love you lots. The waiting is the hardest part, for sure.

  17. Marv needs all the good energy, purrs, Reiki and magic we can gather and send. Does he have meds for Asthma?

  18. Sweet Angel Nellie I know that your visit helped Marvelous ever so much - you gave him hope and love and told him what to expect when he is FINALLY on his way to your Mommy at long last. It's just too bad he has to wait extra time but I promise that I will stay with him to help him make the trip......Tell your Mommy that we've got him covered in Angel wings!!!!

    Love and Hugs, Angel Sammy

  19. 12 days and tomorrow.... that is like that 12 days of christmouse, isn't it? ...and we all can do the countdown till marvelous is there :o)

  20. Thank you, Nellie, for indulging your Mommy and make sure she makes it over the next few days!

    The Chans (Could you say hi to Sen-Chan and Yuu-Chan for us? And also to Trav?)

  21. The wait would kill me too! But he is coming! Hold on--so nice of Nellie to comfort the both of you!

  22. Marvelous, you look sads there but after Nellie talked to you I hope you feel betters knowing your mommy is just pacing up and down waiting to see you. You will come into such love. I know a beautiful Tortie LadyCat would would LOVE to visit with you and snuggle for awhile. Nellie my bestest bestest girl friend, I miss you so much. I am so glad that you and Admiral were together making leisurely plans and talking about our mommy's and furriends. Give her kisses from mommy please?

  23. I know it must be driving you crazy and yes we ALL need to lern patience. We can't wait to meet Marv :-)

  24. You sure were a sweet Angel to go and give comforting words and encouragement to Marv, Angel Nellie.

    Waiting is purrhaps the hardest thing any of us have to learn to deal with...and one of petcretary's fave sayings is 'Hurry Up and wait!'

    ((((( ♥ )))))

  25. Nellie we are so excited and thrilled to learn that Marvelous is coming to live with your Mom...OMCs all the way from Iran where we had heard many kitties were in need of homes too.

    Please tell your Mom how happy we are and tell Marv it is not as long as it used to be.
    We'll keep checking in
    Hugs Madi and mom
