MERRIE is a beautiful blue-grey kitty with super soft fur. He is sweet, affectionate, friendly and playful. What more could you want in a kitty companion?
Merrie does great with kids having lived with a loving family since he was a kitten. His activity level ranges from mellow to moderately active. Merrie especially likes playing with strings. He loves to be picked up and snuggled, especially if you rev up his purr motor by scratching beneath his chin or behind his ears. Merrie also enjoys watching birds out the window.
Merrie is perfect for a family with a couple of older kids whose home is moderately active. He would also do ok in a home with just adults, as long as there are at least two people living in the home and they are around the home a good part of the day (e.g., working from home) and they want a cat who loves to play. Merrie would do fine with a like-minded kitty but is ok as a single cat as long as he gets plenty of people-time and play-time.
Merrie's family is moving to Hawaii are are concerned about the stress such a long move and possible 4 month quarantine would case him. (Hawaii is a rabies-free state and has strict rules about quarantine for incoming animals). So SPCA has agreed to take Merrie into our care and find him another loving family.
