Sometimes it's very difficult to have much to say much about myself, living in a house with so many "brothers and sisters". Some are older, some are younger -- and they can sometimes be QUITE a handful.
I LOVE my "real" sister Lightnin, and we will always watch out for one another and take up for each other when play gets a little too rambunctious for us.
But, I like being in a large family, because there is always someone doing something that makes mommy laugh. When Lightnin and I first joined her family, I was a little worried that we would get lost in the crowd. But mom tries to give us each the attention we want and need, and LOVES to play with us and snuggle whoever seems to want her attention most, at any given time.
I've been watching Catster, for a very long time, hoping to find a very special boy, to be friends with, and to grow to have affection for....
And just this week, it HAPPENED !!! This wonderful fellow named Merlin asked me to be his Valentine. My heart almost burst with Joy! It was Love at first sight.
Maybe his parents named him Merlin because there is something MAGICAL about him ???
Mommy and I look at his photos and he is so unique and handsome I simply melt into mommy's lap and purr. His beautiful MARBLE swirls almost make me dizzy with delight. And the very best part, is that HE likes ME !!
We have our "first date" on Valentine's day -- and I'm so excited I keep giving myself baths and looking in the mirror, to try to see how he might see me. And to be very sure every hair is perfectly in place and shiny clean.
I was teasing Mister Zenith, when he asked Merlin's sister Taffy Morgana to be his valentine -- mainly because I was a little jealous, since he is the baby in OUR family.
Then Merlin asked me to be HIS valentine, and suddenly I understood why Mister Zenith was prancing around so happy - purring all day long!
Merlin doesn't even mind that I'm a little older than him. (which is a huge relief)
I can't wait to see him on Valentine's day!
MERLIN -- if you're reading this -- please know you have made me a very happy kitty lady!
Sorry if I've bored anyone with my ramblings... I guess I'm a little GIDDY!
Happy Valentine's to every cat on Catster -- and ESPECIALLY to you, Merlin!
Warm kitty snuggles,
