    Meet Merlin **HE'S HOME MAY 7, 2010**

    I've gone and done it. I've signed some foster-to-adopt papers with the Humane Society. He's coming home with me in May. That will give me lots of time to find a painter and get the work done before his arrival.

    http://www.rchs.bc.ca/coppermine/dis...album=1&pos=11

    I hope this link will take you directly to his page, if not, scroll through, he is file 12 of 35. We think he was dumped because of his age.

    I met him yesterday and it was love at first sight. He was curled up on his favourite "post". He has very low expectations - in other words, he doesn't expect anyone to notice him. He knows he's old and he knows that most of the people visiting the shelter go away with a much younger and more playful furbaby. But that's OK with him. He's very happy at the shelter and he's not bothered by the other kitties at all. He knows he's safe and is so grateful for a warm place to sleep inside and not outside in the streets. I walked over and started talking to him. He started purring right away without me touching him. I stayed with him for over 30 min and pet him alot but didn't attempt to pick him up. I will visit him again today and take some pictures and update this post. I don't know how long he will be with me because he's already 13/14 yrs old but I want to make his last days as happy and full of love as possible.

    He was adopted out previously but was returned within a week because the resident cat went berserk when Merlin walked in. Apparently Merlin cased the joint for about an hour, then promptly hopped on the bed and went to sleep. I hope he will be just as "at ease" when he comes home with me.

    Now, names anyone????? His tattoo was traced and at the time his name was Merlin but well, Merlin doesn't really suit a orangie in my opinion. Suggestions????

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    What a handsome fellow. Bless you for taking in an older cat and live out its senior days in a good environment. I'll have to see if I can come up with some names for you....

    My boy, Mac is 13 and I don't think of him as old at all. He's just my kitty and that is that. My boyfriend's kitty, Tomas, lived to be 22, so you may have a few years with this handsome gentleman! Yeah, your heart will let you know if there's a connection, and you two knew right away! Instead of Merlin, you could call him Magic.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    Vicki, what a wonderful act of kindness in adopting Merlin! I dunno, I kinda like his name. I think he's a magical cat b/c he was able to work his magic to the point that you signed the papers. No, he isn't a youngun but 13/14 isn't all that old. My 18 yr. old Boo is sitting on my lap right now and, as you know, my RB Pidgie lived to be nearly 22. So my wish for you is that you'll have many more happy years together. You both deserve it.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    I love him!!! I am so happy for you both. Once you get to know him better he may fit a different name.

    I kinda like Merlin as a name as it's magical. I'm sorry you have to wait until May to get him - any chance you can get your place redone before that time?

    Awww, he is adorable!! I think it is WONDERFUL that you are taking in a senior kitty. That was my wish, but I just can't with Paizly.
    I think you should wait until you get him home, or visit him some more before you decide on a name. But I also like Merlin, it's not so bad.
    Congrats Slick!!
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I've been Boo'd!!!

    Slick, I think this is FABULOUS! It looks like you were meant for each other. As for the name - sorry, I have to be with some others and say I love it. The legend of Camelot is one of my favorite stories and I'm attached to Merlin. If you'd like to borrow anything about the name that might make you change your mind, let me know - I even have the program (mini series) on tape.
