Today marks the seventh day that Marcus has missed btmao’s breakfast service. This has never happened before.
Last Tuesday, 8 April was the first day btmao reported that Marcus has missed breakfast.
Missing a meal is not alarming in itself, but with ranking members of the gangland disappearing (Macy, missing since June 2007 and Martin, Marcus’ surrogate parent, MIA since late November 2007), we got a bit worried. But we told ourselves he would appear the next day… which stretched into the weekend.
And right on Saturday, btmao called while on feeding duty – a pack of 4 dogs were harrassing first Mary and then Marty and Henny. Luckily all 3 escaped and are are fine. We fear Marcus may have fallen to them or a similar pack.
Mary is the only gangland member left now.
She was always an outcast among the gang (mostly through her own contentious fault), but she has proven herself the survivor.
Take care, Marcus. We think of you, and wish you well, wherever you are.
