I was first introduced to Marv via text. I was visiting family, and my then-boyfriend Sean was watching my cats Gabby and Iris. Heâ€™d stopped by the pet store to pick up some food, as theirs was getting low.
â€œI need you to talk me out of getting a cat,â€ he wrote.
â€œYouâ€™re talking to the wrong person,â€ I replied.
