Because Burrata needed something sweet in his life, I am happy to introduce Marzipan! We adopted Marzipan a few days ago and he is 10 months old!
Losing Basil was one of the hardest things we have ever had to go through. He was and will forever be my little baby boy. Making the decision to get another family member was also very hard (I did not want another cat at all) but for Burrata’s health, it was necessary.
Basil passed away from FIP; a mutated and deadly version of the Corona virus. The Corona virus mutates when a cat is under severe stress or grief - after losing Basil, Burrata was going through both. He was so very lonely, bored, and sad. He got to the point where his grieving for Basil was mostly over and he was longing for feline companionship. We tried everything under the sun to make him comfortable and happy as a single cat - this process has shown us that he can never be a single cat.
And thus, we started the hunt for a companion! 4 shelters later, we found the perfect buddy for Burrata! Marzipan and Burrata have slowly started meeting each other and have had successful numerous play sessions - they are already starting to become fond of each other! Marzipan is the sweetest boy! He purrs and purrs and loves to be held and cuddled. #marzipanjames #cat #kitten #catsofinstagram #love
