- I've never had stinky goodness.
- If Mom throws a toy I will fetch it and return it to her, dropping it at her feet. I will do this as many times as Mom will.
- I don't meow a lot. Only if I have important stuff to tell.
- At night I like to go to the upstairs bedroom that is directly over Mom and Dad's bedroom and jump from the windows or bed to the floor over and over. I'm heavy and it makes a loud noise.
- I weigh 15 pounds. Last we checked.
- My Dad named me Merlin cause he wanted a name that starts with an M because I have an M on my forehead. He says I'm Magical Merlin.
- Cause my name is Magical Merlin, that's why I wear purple softpaws and a purple collar. If I'm not wearing some other color for a holiday or something.
- Right now I have on orange and black softpaws for Halloween.
- I hide from Dad alot. As soon as he leaves the house, though, I'll come out to hang out with Mom.
- He doesn't like it, it hurts his feelins. So sometimes I'll come and rub on him and it makes him happy.
- Lately I've been extra affectionate. Must be the weather.
- I've learned about lots of stuff from other cats' blogs like: stinky goodness, boxes, clothes, strollers, climby furniture...
- This is what I look like. See my Halloween softpaws? (click to biggify)
Re: softpaws (from Merlin's Mom). Merlin doesn't love getting the softpaws on, but it's not too awful. Usually, his Dad will hold him and I will do the gluing, etc., but I have done it alone also. We started this when Merlin was about 10 weeks old, so he is used to it. We gave it a try because I didn't want to get Merlin declawed but his dad was worried about our furniture, our hardwood floors, and our skin! It's not much trouble and it has saved all three of those things. They last for maybe six weeks, I guess? They fall off when the claws do (which they do naturally anyway) so they don't all fall off at the same time, and so other than the very first application, you don't have to do them all at once and he only has to be still long enough for me to glue a few. I have purchased them from two places, they have different color choices so you might want to check both before you choose. If you have any other questions, feel free to email Merlin or post another comment.
