FOOD !!! and lots of it; he's always winding himself around my legs, meowing for more - even when his dish is full; being brushed is bliss for Merlin, as is sleeping on my bed - we hold paws :)

all visitors - because he is so timid, he runs away and hides; hates being ignored by his Mum, and having his nails clipped

Favorite Toy:
my stomach, chest or legs - they are his kneading-board - and boy, is he heavy

Favorite Nap Spot:
Gosh, that's hard to say as it changes with his moods and with the weather

Favorite Food:
you name it, he wolfs it, then often brings it straight up again ... he is such a pig

Merlin often locks me out of the house by pushing down on the screen snib; he talks with me all the time; and he has a special way of leaping up onto the highest places where I USED to keep all my antique jugs, vases and platters - all of them broken ...


Arrival Story:
When my bestest cat ever, a male Brown Burmese, Benson, was stolen and his female mate, Sasha, pined away, I was just heartbroken & went to the RSPCA - a huge animal rescue centre in Brisbane, Australia, and adopted Angel as a playmate for Merlin, who I'd adopted a few months beforehand. Both are pure black British Shorthairs ... shiny and silky He was a tiny wee little black purry ball who grew into a giant ... he's so strong that when he accidentally head-butts or chin-butts me, I nearly pass out. Angel was fully grown when she was adopted - she was tiny then & still is now ... weighs about as much as 2 feathers ... she smooches and purrs so much that she drools & drips ... yukky but sweet. Merl is a big strong boy, but very shy and easily spooked which is sad ... he does feel safe with me whenever I'm in bed or on the bed reading - he cuddles up & gives me kitty kisses all over my face, then purrs off to sleep - that is really sweet ...

Merlin and Angel love each other to death & when they're not grooming themselves, they groom each other, every day, for ages ... it's SO cute to watch and I never tire of watching them, and they never tire of grooming each other, day after day after day ... it's too beautiful ... and Merlin's so funny to watch: he stalks Angel, pins her down, then licks her all over ...
