Pet-Peeves: If he's comfortable lying in a particular spot, he won't move even if you try to bribe him with treats. Not being fed on time. Being a pincushion (he gets his blood glucose levels tested at least twice a day at home).
Favorite Toy: Doesn't play with toys very much.
Favorite Nap Spot: Current favorite spot is inside his carrier (see Catster Photo Book for a picture).
Favorite Food: chicken
Skills: can sit on command, can create magical spells and poitions, can make things mysteriously disappear and reappear (especially himself)
Arrival Story: Was given by a friend who took one of Merlin's sister whom she named Molly.
Bio: Molly, Merlin's sister, lived upstairs and she and Merlin played with each other for hours every night. Molly and her owner moved away a year later. Merlin misses his sister a lot and, nearly 9 years later, still sticks his paw under the front door that leads upstairs to see if Molly is behind the door waiting to pounce on him.
Merlin was diagnosed with diabetes in May 2005. He doesn't let this bother him. Now, a year later, he is almost regulated on insulin. As a cat wizard, Merlin loves to create spells and potions for his friends as well as make things mysteriously disappear and reappear.

One Boston Day:
One Boston Day
April 15, 2015 marks the beginning of a new annual Boston tradition: One Boston Day. This day will be a celebration of the resiliency, generosity, and strength of the people that make Boston the great city it is.
A belated thank you to the friends who gave rosies and gifts for my recent birthday. I enjoyed celebrating what would have been my 18th birthday at the Bridge with all of my angel friends: Calvin, Samoa, Scooter, Lola, Tux, Tiger Lily, and many many others.
Emma and Leroy are now 5 years old. Emma turned 5 a few weeks ago and today is Leroy's birthday. Leroy wrote all about it in his diary.
Leroy's diary entry also mentions something cool we recently started using. It's a great way to help out charities just by shopping :)
