    Handwritten Cat Care Instructions Written by James Dean. Later named "Marcus" (after his cousin) by the actor, a Siamese kitten was given as a gift to Dean by co-star Elizabeth Taylor near the end production on Giant. The night before his fateful trip to Salinas for the races, Dean left his cat with friend Jeanette Miller, along with these handwritten instructions for care and feeding of his pet: "1 teaspoon white Karo, 1 big can evaporated milk, equal part boiled water or distilled water, 1 egg yoke [sic], mix and chill. Don't feed him meat or formula cold. 1 drop vitamin solution per day. Take Marcus to Dr. Cooper on Melrose for shots next week." The document is in Very Fine condition with a fold crease and mild to moderate tanning and staining around the edges. It has been matted and framed along with a a small b&w photo of Marcus to an overall size of 14" x 16". From the James Dean Museum archive.
