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.
