Description: Merlin is an adorable shorthaired kitten with soft gray fur mottled with white and white stocking feet.
Personality: Merlin is a whimsical little guy who has wisdom in his eyes beyond his years. When he is happy and relaxed he melts into your arms in a symphony of purrs. He may be part dog as he loves to roll onto his back to get his belly rubbed and wiggles back and forth with joy. He is an excellent little soccer player and also is learning to play fetch with a paper ball....well, he likes to chase the ball and carry it around in his mouth but he has not mastered bringing it back yet! He is amazingly gentle when he plays with people, hardly ever using his claws or teeth. Merlin is great friends with his foster siblings, Tavi, Arthur, and Juniper, and would love to be adopted with one (or both!) of them or another playful kitten. Merlin is shy in new situations and would prefer a household without dogs or young kids. Merlin is patiently waiting for the perfect person to see the magic in him. It will be the best decision of their life.
Animal History: Merlin and his foster siblings were rescues from the community
