Merlin is an 8-year-old, neutered male, gray tabby Domestic Shorthair.
Merlin's owner says, 'I am moving to Bridgewater Retirement Community and they do not want pets to go outside without a leash. Merlin is a great pet and I do not want to give him up. I do not think a leash will work for Merlin and staying inside all the time will not work also. Merlin is a grey Tabby and 8 years old. He was a stray and then an outside cat for his first 4 years. When I got him from a friend he became an outside/inside cat. He is litter box trained. I am hoping to find a loving home where he can go outside sometimes.'
