Our little cat. I think.

Merlin, our 11 month old kitten, who happens to look more like a five year old cat than a baby and acts more like a dog than a kitten, is probably the most destructive animal you will ever meet. But when he’s sleeping, well he’s just darn cute. And photogenic.

Merlin in the Chair

While he tends to act like a dog, he sits like a person. Yeah, we have a cat with an identity problem. But still. He’s just darn cute.

When he’s sleeping.

Pocket Merlin.

I’m too tired to actually do a post, but I feel like I kind of jipped out on today in regards to some interesting content. So, to make up for it, have a kitten.


Unfortunately, he’s too big to actually fit in my pocket anymore. It’s sad and I miss it. Now he likes to hang out on my shoulder while I’m wandering around the house. Or on Ash’s back while she’s typing on her computer. It’s cute, though a little annoying.

Right. Bed time. Oh, and go meet Galileo!

Merlin the Psycho Cat

I swear, our cat is a dog. Merlin, our 14 week old kitten, is a dog. Not only does he follow Spunky around EVERYWHERE and sleep with him (really, he sleeps curled up in his tail), but he runs to the door with him when someone comes in, he tries to eat the dog food with Spunky, he chases his tail in circles, he gives Spunky baths but terrorizes the other cats, and I swear I even heard him bark a couple of times.

We got him back in August and the only reason we brought him home was because Spunky wanted him. There were these girls with a basket with two kittens in it. They put the basket down, Spunky stuck his face in it, and Merlin instantly started throwing himself all over Spunky’s face. It was like we had to take him home because Spunky wanted him. We think that perhaps Merlin was taken from his mother too early and he’s imprinted himself onto Spunky, which is why he acts the way he does. He’s a neurotic little cat.

There was no point to this post really. I was just watching Merlin chasing his tail and it struck me that I never really mentioned his bizarre behavior here. So now you know.

Crazy cat.
