Have you met Murkin yet?
Cynthia: For this Monday morning video I thought I’d introduce Murkin, the dog who is the best foster kitten dad on the planet.
Penelope Kitten furtively looks around for Marcy.
penelpe kitten (squeaking): uh oh.
Cynthia: Don’t worry, Penelope. Marcy ate some cat nip and zonked out. She’ll never know we put a dog and kittens on the blog.
Cynthia hits play.
Cynthia: Isn’t Murkin just the sweetest, most patient dog on the planet? His family fosters kittens and he’s like that with all of them. You can check out a ton more Murkin/Kitten videos on YouTube. Another favorite is this one of Murkin playing with black kittens.
Marcy (suddenly out of nowhere): I love Murkin.
Cynthia and Penelope Kitten jump out of their seats at the sound of Marcy’s voice.
Cynthia (blurting): YOU love a DOG?
penelope kitten: shhhh!
Marcy: Murkin is not a dog.
Cynthia: Then what is he?
Marcy: A wookiee.
Cynthia: A what?
Penelop Kitten leaps onto Cynthia’s head to get her to shut up.
penelope kitten: shhhhh…
They watch as Marcy heads to the kitchen looking for munchies and marveling that they got away with posting a dog and kitten video on the blog.
What a sweet video. And it evoked happiness in Marcy, the queen of cynicism. Maybe with some therapy she’ll admit that Murkin really is a dog.
Somehow I don’t think Marcy would do well in therapy. I would fear for the therapists own sanity.
Sure, Marcy. She’s a wookie. Whatever you say… more catnip?
(PS – Sorry to be a little… inappropriate? But that dog’s owners DO know what a merkin is, don’t they? Spelled differently, but pronounced the same… )
Ah no… now I have to look it up. Or maybe I won’t. Murkin is an adorable name!
OMG he’s so sweet I can’t stand it!!! And how great for the kitties to be socialized with a dog. I would think that would make them much more adoptable!
Yes! Exactly! Much more adoptable if they can get along with dogs!
Awww…I’ve never heard of murkin…he’s so sweet! I love the one with him playing with the black kitties. 🙂
Isn’t it just so adorable?! I could watch Murkin/Cat videos alllllll day!
Yes he is a sweetie. But then I got to wondering what wookies would eat, because it seemed to me that possibly cats might be on the menu. So I googled “what does Chewbacca eat” and the first answer was they are omnivorous like humans, so who knows.
Uh oh. Don’t tell Marcy!!!!!
