Welcome to a extra special Cat Saturday News & Mews.
In case you missed it, our foster gal Ling Ling went to her forever home this week. I shed more than a few tears but the others? No biggie. Odin adjusted in two shakes of his tail and Gris Gris sighed in relief from his tormentor.
For Merlin it was the best birthday present possible. With the natural order restored, he forgave me and bestowed special snuggle privileges. Since Ling Ling can’t be here for the party, here she is with me providing a lesson.
There truly are no ordinary cats but there some extraordinary cats like Merlin. A proud Canadian, born on October 2nd, he had a rough start with four homes in his first year before I adopted him and his sister Coco, a few days before his their first birthday. He’s aged gracefully and is a dignified old gentleman.
I’m blessed to have some kitten photos of him before I knew him. He’s still handsome but it was love at first sight when I met him as this stunning nine-month-old kitten. I felt destiny’s pull but it would be three more months before he came home with me forever.
So without further adieu, help yourself to a sunny spot and join the rest of the fur gang. There is still some fresh catnip available from the garden.
Merlin makes one big wish for every cat on this planet to be happy.
There’s always someone who is out of control at a party. Of course it was Odin, climbing up on the porch roof again. Cat daddy will need a new chainsaw soon. What I say, a leopard doesn’t change his spots. He’s a wild boy but with a big heart. Note how is bushy his tail from excitement. If he was human he’d no doubt enjoy extreme sports like heli-skiing or bungee jumping.
At the ripe old age of 17, Merlin no longer relishes adventure, or even toys. He’s happy with simple pleasures: a good meal, a warm lap, a garden stroll and a sun puddle. Oh, yeah and…
Thanks for coming and feel free to lounge as long as you like. Purrs.
