Mondays With Merlin — Cat Talk Video

Happy Monday cat lovers. Layla wakes up every day in awe that I’m still alive. Yes, it’s true every day I creep closer to my 20th birthday. If we were in Vegas, someone would place odds on whether I’ll make it but I’m not the gambling sort. Cats never gamble a sure thing in the present for an iffy thing in the future. What on earth could be better than the here and now? Even a dismal Monday beats the alternative, six feet under. Anyway, Layla thinks it’s time to show me in action. Oh my whiskers, why didn’t she do this when I was young and handsome? I used to be able to jump six foot fences and yodel at the same time. Seriously, I had some smooth moves but we’re talking years before the crazy era of Internet celebrity cats and viral videos.


The first video is so short, blink and you miss the magic. The second video is slightly longer with Layla prattling on about vet visits and other nonsense.

You’ll see me respond appropriately. Ha! I always get the last word. Needless to say I did not feel like going on a walk for the camera. What am I a performing seal? I think not. Maybe next time. The lesson is folks, don’t waste a nanosecond on anything that isn’t love, peace or purr-worthy. Have a good week.

  1. Merlin surveying his garden, kissed by the sun, basking in the warmth.
    Then Layla had to say that discouraging word : VET…
    Good boy, handsome Merlin.

  2. Merlin, you look great!, Your face looks good, your fur is purrfectly beautiful and your vocals steady and strong. I can’t understand why Layla didn’t see that you were turning to make sure you didn’t get any tan lines.

  3. God bless you dear friend Merlin. You grow more beautiful by the day. Age has its own beauty and grace that does not come to us any other way. You must always look and see with your heart not your eyes, that is when you truly see ALL the beauty .
