My story

Merlin is a 9-year-old (as of 3/13/22), domestic long-haired neutered male. 

Merlin aka Buddy Kittens has been in his current foster home since September 2020. He has done almost a 180 since he's been there, and it’s time for him to move on to a new home, either through adoption or fostering.   His foster mom has done amazing work with Merlin, and would love to keep him, but she lives in a small house and has cats of her own. One of her cats is an alpha male, and needless to say, two alphas in a small house don't work very well. Merlin would do best in a quiet home with one or two adults (no children) who have solid experience with cats. To our knowledge, he has never been around dogs and because of that, we would not recommend that he live with dogs. A home with no other cats would also be preferred.

He’s a character with lots of personality & a bit of ‘catitude’ who loves to talk. With 5 planets in Pisces, he is extremely intuitive & would be a great cat with whom to hone your animal communication skills. Energy healing has been a large part of his healing process, so priority would go to an energy healer.

Merlin had a loving home from kittenhood, but two cross country moves & the arrival of two babies to the original household proved overwhelmingly stressful for him. Merlin ended up with a case of PTSD that turned him grumpy & very reactive. Underneath that grumpy exterior, though, is a heart of gold. He can now be quite cuddly. We would love to find someone who can continue bringing out his sweetness. He has mellowed quite a bit, especially after weekly sessions of energy healing. (He goes monthly now.) He also needs to lose weight & continue with a thyroid supplement (kelp) that gets mixed into his wet food. Aside from being overweight, he is perfectly healthy. There’s a lot of him to love.

More about this rescue

Mission Statement: The Cat Network is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit, 501(c) (3), no-kill and life-enhancing cat rescue group. Since 1991, we have rescued and placed thousands of abandoned, abused, stray and shelter cats and kittens in St. Louis, Missouri and surrounding areas.

Cats and kittens are kept in foster care and then placed in loving permanent homes whenever possible.
