Meezer Monday & Merry Christmas!

Merlin:

Merlin
Hello, I'm Merlin, and I've been told to introduce myself to you. My registered name is Miraclelove Bijan, but the big cats (oh, the other Sphynx here tells me they're humans) call me Merlin.

I'm a little guy, 15 weeks old, about half the size of the Sphynx already living here. This seems to be a nice place, although I miss my littermates - my brother and two sisters - and my mom. The big cats (humans) here are nice, and play with me a lot. I really like to play with the feather wand toy, and with the ball tracks! I love to purr, and I purr the minute one of the big cats (humans) touches me.

I like my room, there are lots of toys, a huge scratching post, crunchies and water available all the time, soft food twice a day, and a nice litterbox. Plus lots of places to explore. I'm not too sure about the other Sphynx, who says him name is Dragonheart. He keeps trying to whap me, so I growl and hiss at him. We did manage to sleep within a foot of each other yesterday afternoon though. I curled up in the female's lap for a nap, and the other Sphynx curled up against her legs. That was fine. But awake, he keeps trying to whap me, so I growl and hiss.

When I'm not playing, I definitely prefer to curl up next to a big cat (human). I spend most of my time during the day playing, though. I spend the night sleeping, curled up next to one of the big cats (humans). If the other Sphynx stops whapping me, I'm sure I'll love it here.

Dragonheart:

Can you believe my humans brought a KITTEN into the house?!? He's in the cat room, climbing on my big cat tree (there's a smaller one in the family room), playing with my toys, and cuddling with my humans! Normally I'm a very friendly and tolerant guy, but I'm not sure I like having this kitten here.

I've tried whapping him to show him who's boss, but he just growls and hisses at me, and then carries on. My humans say we'll become friends in time, but I'm not so sure. I don't like sharing my humans with this kitten!

From all of us:

We would like to wish all those who celebrate a very Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas!

Joyeux Noël!

Fröhliche Weihnachten!

Merry Christmas Dragonheart:)
It is not easy to get familiar to other cat~ But, I believe you and Merlin will be the best buddy ever :)

I wish you will have great time with each other, your mommy is a very sweet lady, she will help you both~!!!

Merlin is a very nice name ! and DH, don't worry your humans are still loving you very much and you will get used to this little annoying thing ! Be a little patient.
I and the cats wish the whole family a Merry Christmas ! I hope you and little Merlin will get a lot of treats under the tree !

Merry Christmas dear Dragonheart and hi to little Merlin!

We love the digital scrapbook photo. Mom wants to teach it to her students when school starts next February - but she will have to learn how, from scratch first!

Daisy said...

I think it sounds like you two are off to a good start if you can already sleep within a foot of each other. Sometimes Pixie and I cannot even do that! Merlin has the most beautiful baby blue eyes. Merry Christmas!

Parker said...

I think that there is a lot of progress if you two can already sleep so close! Merlin is adorable and Dragonheart, you are as handsome as ever!
Merry Christmas!

Miz said...

Hello Merlin! Once Dragonheart gets over not being an only child anymore, you and he will have great fun driving your humans crazy!

Chen & Ollie said...

Oooohhh! Your new kitten brother has arrived. It will take time to adjust Dragonheart, but look on the bright side... now, you have someone to play tent wars with all the time!!

We wish you and Merlin and your beans a very Merry Christmas!!
Purrs,
Mr. Chen & Ollie

Sammawow said...

What pretty blue eyes you have, Merlin! We are so glad that you two slept almost together all ready. Soon you will realize how nice and warm it will be, sleeping with your brother. Again, we hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Purrrrrrs, China Cat & Willow

Maggy & Zoey said...

Dear Merlin: You are a very cute kitty boy. We are glad that you and your big Brother are napping together. Dragonheart is the best big brother. He will love you and teach you everything, and guard you from scary things.

Dragonheart: Whapping is okay. You are the big boss :-D try to be gentle though... and no biting.

Happy Merry Christmas to you and your family

Hugs and smooches to my kittenboy and mancat!!

Purrpurrrpurrrr,
Prinnie

Oh Merlin you are going to love it there!! And sleeping within a foot of each other so quickly? You'll be best friends in no time. You're such a cute Christmas Kitten!

cyclone cats! said...

Hi Merlin! Everycat is right-it'll just take time for the big brother to get used to you!

Dragonheart-we got your card in the mail today! Thanks!

Happy Holidays to you, Merlin and your humans!!

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

Merry Christmas to all of you!!
I'm sure given time you'll be snuggling together with minimal whapping (my daddy is the youngest of 3 boys and he says all brothers whap each other).

Do I see a little tuxie coloring in you too Merlin? Your brother has such great Mancat colors.

Big hugs and purrs to you both!

Lux said...

Merry Christmas to your expanded family also!

Merlin, you're a cutie.

Dragonheart, you're as handsome as ever.

Love,
Luxie

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh Dragonheart! We were so excited to see your blog this morning because it's meezer Monday! What a darling.

The whapping will calm down I am sure. I just love kits. A firm hand and steal their mousies regularly then you will be fast friends.

Chey licks Merlin's ear.

Meezer Christmas!

The Meezers said...

Hi Merlin, it's very nice to meet you!

Dragonheart, we're so sorry - here you were expecting a little brother and they brought a KITTEN into the house! How dare they!!

Hang in there buddy, it will get better.

Derby said...

Merry Christmas everyone

Forty Paws said...

DH will eventually stop whapping you Merlin. He's just telling you who's topcat around there.

We all hope that you guys have a wonderful, peaceful Christmas!

The Furry Kids said...

Hi DH & Merlin! Once you guys get used to each other, you'll have so much fun. Siblings are awesome!
We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Hello, Merlin. It's so nice to finally meet you. They've been talking about you for some time now. I'm sure you're going to love your forever home, and that soon Dragonheart will get used to you. For now, try to forgive him for whapping you. Also, keep in mind, you can whap him back, too.

Merry Christmas to everyone in your family :-)

Beezer said...

Merlin,
I'm sure Dragonheart will be your best friend in no time. Its great that you two can share your mombean for a snuggle. Snuggles and lapsits are my most favorite things in all the world.

Have a good sleep and a great Chris-mouse day!

Your new pal Beezer

Icon Baxter Bentley said...

Oh, I entered in the auto-linkies before I read Meezer Monday - I thought it was just mancat monday - I hope you don't mind...

DH, I totally agree with you about sharing your humans with a kitten, and it sucks, but you seem to be off to a good start. He is cute!!

Merry Christmas Eve

Chairman Mao said...

Hiya, Dragonheart and Merlin! Merry Chrissymouse to you and yur fambly! And wowie, you two are already sleepin within a foot of each othur -- that's a very good sign. You'll be really great friends soon, I just know it!

Brainball and I made fast furriends, but it took Dorydoo and me months before we'd sleep close to each othur. But now we do, and we play chase and rassle with each othur, too.

So I'm sure, Merlin and Dragonheart, you'll be great furriends very soon because you're already off to an ecksellent start!

Holliday huggies to you and yur fambly frum alla us Ballicai and our Beans!

Rascal said...

Hellow Merlin! Welcome! Merry Christmas to you and Dragonheart!

Vader's Mom said...

You'll be best friends before you know it Dragonheart!!

Have a wonderful Christmas from me & Vader :)

Eric and Flynn said...

Hi Merlin, we're sure Dragonheart will soon love you and be running around playing with you. At the moment he thinks you are an intruder because he's used to being an only kitty.

Queen Snickers or Empress said...

Ah, poor Dragonheart! It does take some getting used to... I whap my little sister all the time. I will warn you though, I did push a bit to much once and she whapped me back and hit me in the eye! I had to get drops for a week!! So, I'd whap in moderation. ~Queen Snickers

Ruis said...

Ohhh, Merlin, you are beautiful!! I know you miss your mommy and littermates, but I am sure if you give it a few days you will have a wonderful, great and sweet friend: Dragonheart!

Dragonheart, I think he knows you are the boss.;-) And with two humans in the house each can sit in a lap.

This afternoon we unpacked our Secret Paws package... We got it earlier but the staff saved it to Christmouse Eve. So I just found out tonight that YOU were my Secret Paw!!! You sent toys and treats and catnip, and the staff LOVES the beautiful kitty card! Of course I will share the things and treats with my feline furriends here. I actually already had a little fight over the cat nip bag with Bubbles. And I am afraid I was a little too wild with the reindeer...

Dragonheart, thank you SOOOO MUCH for the gifts!!! The staff made a bunch of photos of the surprise party and I posted them just before midnight.

We all (also the staff) wish you, Merlin, and your mom and dad Merry Christmas & Wonderful Holidays

Max said...

Welcome to the world, Merlin! And welcome to brotherhood, Dragonheart!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Samantha & Tigger said...

Hi Merlin! It is very nice to meet you! Dragonheart, we are sure you two will get use to each other soon!
We want to wish you a very Blessed Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
Your FL furiends,

Karen Jo said...

Merlin, you have the most adorable blue eyes. Don't worry too much about the whapping. Dragonheart is just letting you know that he is the boss. It should ease off soon. Dragonheart, I'm glad that you and Merlin are already sleeping near each other. That is a very good sign that you will like each other soon. You will get used to him in time and then you will have lots of fun together. A very Merry Christmas to all of you.

Skeeter And LC said...

Merry Chrissy Mouse Dragonheart and Merlin... :)

Tyler said...

Oh Dragonheart, I feel your pain. It must be very hard for an only cat to all of a sudden have to share your parents, home ahd toys with a cute cuddly kitten!

And Merlin, your new big brother keeps whapping you? Try not to take it personally. It's hard to adjust to a new brother. Maybe when you get your smells on everything, then it will be easier for you. Good luck buddy.

Congratulations on sleeping so close together. There is enough love to go around, isn't there?

Merry merry Christmas Dragonheart and Merlin.
Peace, love, and purrs,
Tyler
