Skills: He rises up on his haunches and runs after Bailey like this and flings his arms at him.
Arrival Story: My friend's co-worker's Maine Coon cat mated with a domestic shorthair and had three kittens (all black). There were two boys and one girl. I got one of the boys. After I got him home, I noticed that he was more than solid black especially on his tummy, head and neck. When his fur is parted in these areas, you see white and not black. This is a smoke. Also, he has stripes everywhere that are under the coat of black. His hair is still short, but getting longer on the britches and tummy. It looks like his hair is spiked. The texture of his coat is like that of my black lambswool/angora hat.
Bio: He has just gotten the bill of health from the vet and I let him play with my boys Sampson Silver Dollar and Bailey Gray Cloud. Samp was pretty good with Merlin and trilled at him. Also, Bailey did the same. All three of them trill to each other. Merlin and Bailey are already friends and have supervised playtimes as Bailey is much, much bigger and sometimes a little rough (in my opinion). When Merlin grows a little more (perhaps a month from now) he can have the run of the house just like Samp and Bail. Currently, Merlin is a little guy and only weighs 2.6 lbs. Bailey is about 12 lbs. and tried to sit on him. I instantly had to break that up. Merlin is so young and hasn't developed his full purrsonality (as cats call it) yet. As his growth progresses, more and more photos will be added here along with developing personality traits.
Diary Picks for 2009: 8/31, 11/5 and 11/8.
I know, I know. I'm shy and afraid of anyone who visits Mommy. Because of my shyness, I missed out on some treats; likewise for Joss. Mommy put said treats on a plate and slid them under the big red couch for me and Joss. Unfortunately, Landy went under there and ate them before we could.
Oh well, Mommy gave me some chicken the next morning when she was fixing her lunch to take to work. Muwahhhhhh!!!
Lastly, I concat Ms. Pawpular in our household. I can't believe that she's getting so many Diary Picks. If Catster still had that "Pawpular" column like they did in 2006 when we first joined, she'd be up there for sure. I used to be #5 on that column's top 5 listing.
Also, another weekend is upon us. Two more weeks of Farmer's Market are left. Tomorrow and next Sunday. After that, we have to wait until April. That doesn't mean no more salmon; Mommy cooks it pretty good in her convection oven. In fact, I like Mommy's recipe better.
Lastly, Joss is getting bigger everyday. Pretty soon, she'll weigh as much as me. She's not fat though. She's got those Maine Coon bones and big feet.
We'll that's about it. I'm running out of things to write about.
I wish everycat a safe and happy Halloween. As you can see, I'm dressed up as Merlin again this Halloween. That's who I'm named after so it's appropriate I dress like him.
Also, Sampy is doing much better this whole week on his reduced thyroid and heart meds. The larger doses made him too sleepy and he was also neglecting his grooming. Mommy had to help him by using kitty wipes and frequent combings. Now, he's able to do it himself and his floofy coat is looking much better.
Other than that I extend belated concats to Joss for her back-to-back diary picks. Woo-Hoo, girl.
Lastly, she's been hanging around with me a lot and chasing me too. I guess she's getting tired of picking on Landy all the time.
