tma headcanon that martin hates cats. dogs, he likes, but cats he has always found untrustworthy and cold and one bit him when he was a kid so if he never saw another cat in his life, he’d be perfectly fine with that thank you very much.
except then they end up somewhere else, and jon is much weaker without his connection to the Beholding, and so martin ends up getting a job while he is still under house rest. and then one day he comes home and there jon is, sitting on the floor, drenched from head to toe, cuddling with what might be the nastiest cat martin has ever seen.
the cat is painfully thin and its fur is scraggly and there is a nasty scar running across its face.
it hates martin.
from the moment it sees martin, it puffs up its tail, bares its teeth and hisses. and martin is losing his mind thinking about jon getting sick from whatever parasites this thing carries, the muddy prints on their sofa, and is rabies extinct in this alternate UK too?
but jon explains how he rescued the cat from a storm drain and it is still raining outside and...one look into his eyes and martin knows there is no way they can let this cat out into the night that day.
he is going to broach the subject of maybe taking the cat to a nice shelter...but the cat loves jon and jon sounds younger, sounds almost like himself, as he asks the cat who is a good kitty and scritches behind its ear and martin loves him far too much to take this little bit of comfort away from him. even if the little bit of comfort still hisses at martin every time he enters the room.
but the thing about martin is, he is patient, and he knows how those who lash out are often the ones who are the most scared and well...he knows one or two things about how to win them over. he has after all done it once before and this cat he thinks, has nothing over jonathan sims.
this is the story of how martin becomes a cat person.
