It's About Time

Well, innernets! Here I am! I'm back! I can't believe how long I've been out of touch. SO many things happened while Mom and Dad are out of town, but I can't share too much because Mom reads my blog. I have no privacy. But I do want to say thanks to all of you that teleported over to keep me company while they were gone.

Mom and Dad are home now, and I yelled and yelled at them, but then Mom picked me up and cuddled me and ruined my perfectly good mad mood. I couldn't help it-- I purred. I was weak, but it had been a long time and she knows just how to scratch my head and rub my tummy.

It won't be long before my little brother gets here! I am so excited. I let Mom set aside some of my Christmas toys so that he can have some, and we'll get some new ones together. I'm thinking of all the things to tell him and show him, and I'm really excited about it!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year! 2007 is gonna be GREAT!


Be back soon!

Hi everybody. Merlin's Mom here. We are still out of town, and Merlin does not have access to his computer, but he wanted me to let you all know that he will return to blogging as soon as possible (probably Jan 1!) and will keep all of you informed as he anticipates the arrival of his little bro.

Happy Holidays and a Great New Year to all!


Secret Paws!!

So, when Mommy FINALLY came home from work today, there was a box at our front door. And guess what? It was for me. It's about time that I was allowed to check out one of the boxes at the door. Usually they get taken away and put out of my reach... Anyway, so here I am sniffin' it out. I could smell somethin' comin' outta that box, if you know what I mean.

Then I read the very nice card that was included, complete with a Cat's Christmas Prayer, which was furry sweet.
Then I unwrapped all the packages...
And this thing immediately became my favorite! It's a purple (my favorite color!) mousie, and you know what else, it's got NIP in it. Told ya I could smell somethin'. I played and played and played with the mousie....

Then I finally realized there were more things in the box!!! There were treats-- so many treats!!! Two kinds of Pounce treats, some Temptayshuns, AND some Whisker Lickin's!!! I'm so excited, I've never tasted ANY OF THESE BEFORE OH MY GOSH! I started off with the Pounce moist tuna flavor. Yummy!!! Also, there's some chasey-jingley-balls. And a catnip play heart, which is totally kewl b/c I love the nip. Here I am checkin' out all my loot!

Thank you Thank you Thank you to my secret paws, the Tyson Crew! And guess what? There's like a SCHMILLION of them!! There are 3 beans, plus 12 (TWELVE!!!) fuzzes (Ashley, Ebony, Dusk, Dawn, Beltaine, Morrey, Thor, Eclipse, Corona, Fwiskie, Queenie and Tabitha) and one woofie named Sadie (hey, that's my mom's name!). Thank you so furry much, and Merry Christmas to effury one of you!!!

Finally, some peace

Mommy started her temp-hor-hairy job today. I am finally able to enjoy some peace and quiet around the house! I do miss her, though, I guess. Don't tell her, though, I want her to think I'm independent and grownup and stuff.

I am so exhausted from entertaining her for the past six weeks, so I'm gonna go get unner my tree and take a long nap. I'm starting to plan for my new brother's arrival, too. I will update you all as soon as I can wake up, but right now, I'm... just... so... sleepy...


Thanks for the Advice

Mommy and I really appreciate all the advice and suggestions. We'll check out all the websites and stuff.

I have never been around other kitties, 'cept when I was a baby and I lived outside... I was found living with a group of three other kittens, but they weren't my littermates, I was a couple weeks older than the others. But since then, it's been just me, and the woofies.

Mommy's hopin' that LT and I will like each other and be best friends, but she knows it might not be so easy. Since LT knows about bein' around other kitties (the 2Bs) maybe he can teach me about it. She's also hopin' since he's little (3 months old I think) and I'm only 1 (and a half) that we'll learn to love each other.

Keep it coming with the advice and suggestions!!! Thanks, guys!

Big BIG Noos

Well, the verdict is in! DADDY SAID YES! I'm getting a BROTHER!!!! He's not coming until after the New Year because Mommy and Daddy are gonna go outta town at Christmas and don't wanna leave my brother alone like that. Me they'll leave, I guess. Whatever, I don't care! I'm gettin' a BROTHER!

I'm furry excited. I'm gonna show him my window and my tree and where's the best spot to see birdies, and I'm gonna introduce him to my woofies, cause they'll be his woofies too. Maybe he can teach me how to sleep with my tummy showin' like he does, b/c I don't do that. And I'll have somebody to snuggle with and play with and wrestle with, even when Mommy's not home!

Doesn't he look like me? I think maybe we were supposed to be brothers. I think Bubbles will really like me now, for getting LT out of his house. ;) Okay, and LT will also need his forever name. Mommy says Daddy gets to choose, but if you have suggestions let us know. Daddy named me, too, and wants LT to have a magical name to go with mine. Like "Hairy Potter." Are there other magician or wizard names that you can think of to suggest?

Mommy also wants for please efurrycat and efurrybean who has multiple kitty advice to please email or leave a comment!


Nuthin to See Here

My mommy keeps waiting for me to do something new she can take a picture of. Because, she says, almost ALL the pictures of me have me either sleepin, in my window, or (recently) unner my tree.

But I like sleepin, and bein' in my window, and bein' unner my tree.

So that's where I am and what I'm doin. And that's my Kitty Prerogative! Anycat that wants to teleport over and join me is welcome!


Tabby Tuesday

May your Holidays be SWEET!


We'll Miss You Libby...

Sweet Libby Marie Riley went to the Rainbow Bridge today. She was unnerneath her Christmas tree, and I like to be under my Christmas tree, too, so I've been thinkin' about her while I lie unner my tree.

You can read about some things you can do to help her Mommy wif vet's bills and stuff on Skeezix's blog.

Goodbye Libby, we will miss you. Here is a picture of Libby unner her tree that she loved, wif her Mommy that she loved.


Visions of Sugarplums....

I am so sleepy! I have been watchin' Mom shop online all afternoon. Also, she might have a temp-or-hairy job to do for a while, so that's good, it means she can keep me in nip, but today she had to go pee in a cup or somethin' so they can make shoor she's not on the nip herself... Also, she's going to gradyooit skool startin' next month, so I'm just ixhosted thinkin' about all this. I need a nap.


Christmas Poem for Daphne

As you may know, Daphne and Not the Mama issued a challenge yesterday for me to write her a Christmas love poem using the following words: Daphne, Merlin, Chloe, Spooker, Jazper, Senor Gato, Mommy, Not the Mama. If my poem is acceptable, she and Not the Mama are gonna make a donayshun to the Hyoomayne Sosyotee. I hope you like it Daph!

Well, drumroll please....

My Christmas Love

My tree is very sparkly

I like all its lights

But I wish I had my girlfriend

To snuggle on cold nights

I know there's Chloe and Jazper

To keep her company

And even Auntie Spooker

(when she feels friendly)

But at Christmastime my Daphne

I hope that you do know

How much Merlin loves you

More than Senor Gato!

And so for Christmas this year

When Santa asks my wish

I'll ask Mommy and Not the Mama

To let me give you a KISS!!!!

What I Do

Some cats have wondered, "hey, Merlin, what do you do when you're not in your favorite window?" Well, I like to play with fishies, chase fev-ver butt mousies, eat, clean myself, nap, snuggle with Mommy.... and also sit in one of the other windows as you can see in this pickshur. If you click to biggify, you can see that the cushion on the chair has KITTIES on it!

Also, Daphne has issued a challenge to me to write her a Christmas love poem, AND she has listed some words that I have to include. Wow! That's gonna be tough! I'd better get busy...


New view

Okay, so I know you're gettin' tired of pictures of me in my favorite window. So this time I thought I'd post it from the other side! This is what my Mommy sees when she leaves me. I sit in this window so I can watch her drive away...


Lots Going On

First of all, guess what? Mommy talked to Daddy about LT last night. She showed him pictures, and told him the story about how he was living in a place that got destroyed by construckshun eekwipment and effurything. He didn't say yes.... BUT HE DIDN'T SAY NO! But Mommy says that until he says yes efurrycat out there should still be lookin' for a forever home for LT in case Daddy does say no...

Also? My mom knows I was sad not goin' owtside, so she brought a TREE into the livin' room! Just for me! She even put lights on it to keep me warm and put a blanket unnerneath so I have a place to lie down. I like to lie on my back and look up at my tree. Mommy thinks that furry funny because I NEVER lie like that, ever. That's why I had to stop doin' Tummy Tuesday, cause there weren't enough pictures of my tummy! Here's some pickshurs.
