Description Starvin Marvin was a young, skinny, feral tom that could not seem to get enough to eat. He likely had a heavy parasite load and was always hungry. He would take the biggest bites of food that he possibly could and then struggle to chew it and swallow it as fast as he could. He came regularly to Otiss yard for several weeks but was never captured. Eventually he stopped coming and was never seen again.Saint Starvin Marvin watches over cats that are struggling to find food. He also supports people who provide these cats food in a responsible way that does not begin to cause problems with wildlife, in conjunction with attempting to capture the cats and bring them in from the shadows.
Cult Of Otis, Seattle, WA Member Since February 2011 Artist Statement Otis came from the humblest of beginnings. He is the son of two ferals- abandoned domestic cats struggling to survive in a world to which they are not adapted. His early life was bleak and lonely. His days were filled with fear, hunger and infinite danger. It appeared that He would be doomed to the same shadowy existence as His parents, and that His life would be short and contain great suffering. But this was not to be His fate.
Within Otis there existed an enormous strength of spirit. This strength was recognized by the two that would become the Guardians of Otis. With the help of Brother Oliver and Brother Henry, they coaxed forth the True Spirit of Otis. As the True Spirit of Otis emerged, he began to perform miracles. After a short time in Limbo, Otis was swept up in The Capture and now dwells in The Promised Land. His full potential now realized, he acts as the spiritual leader of the Cult of Otis, and He spreads The Good Word to all who will listen.
