Merlin cat 21 birthday

The biggest feline birthday we’ve ever celebrated is Merlin’s 21st. What is there to say about a cat who for 20 years has behaved more human than many humans? He’s my soulmate cat and when my husband asked me to marry me I told him, “You do understand that Merlin will always come first?” He agreed and that’s the way it’s been. Our 15th wedding anniversary is at the end of the month and I often think Joe loves Merlin more than I do.

If I had to imagine Merlin as a human it would be like this or as a movie star. He’s been an old boy for as long as I’ve been blogging so no one knows just how charismatic he was in his younger years. He could command a room of students or dinner guests with a glance and have them fall instantly under his thrall. And now my baby boy is an old man. For twenty years he’s been my faithful sidekick, brilliant muse and fur pillow. Whip smart, elegant, wise and noble, he could crack up a room with a monologue in loud Siamese. He could do no wrong even when he’d get into mischief. In an imperfect world, every whisker, hair and claw of his was perfection.

Our birthday boy needs nothing but love and okay adulation (he’s still shockingly vain). If you’d like to make a birthday donation for less fortunate cats, please do and leave a personal message for Merlin there .[wpepdd name=”Help Cats in Need” price=”5.00″ url=” “]

Unfortunately when we re-posted, there were so many comments/entries that could not be posted. I’ve saved them all to a file and sharing one sweet example from Angel Ms. Phoebe’s Family:

We have adored you and your family since the great day we discovered your blog four years ago. Ms. Phoebe was an immediate fan of you and your brothers and especially how your wise ways influenced and inspired your fur sibs and Mom. Your zest for life she identified with and admired, your birthday celebration this week was bittersweet as I thought a lot about my best girl.
