Facts about Merlin

  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 32124217
  • Hair: Unknown
I'm a very laid-back, active, sleek black 15-year-old gentleman who loves to bat around cat-wands and sit on your lap. I also sleep with my foster-mom, kind of an extra snuggle-blanket, but don't wake her at night. The resident cat and I get along fine (I'm kind of a beta-cat); I lived with dogs in my previous forever home (which turned out not to be forever, ***sniff***). I will eat anything that's not moving, and use my litter box faithfully. I have so much love to give you! If you'd like to meet me, please contact my foster mom at maryjo.melancon@verizon.net.
