Merlin: Tripper; Pearl, Bert & Jake; and Artsy Catsy tagged Merlin for the 7 Random/Weird Things About Me Meme. So here are 7 Things about me, Merlin.
- I LOVE to purr! I purr at the slightest touch! Sometimes I start to purr when someone (either Dragonheart or one of our humans) just gets close to me! Or when my humans are putting food on my plate.
- I LOVE to play! My favourite toys include feather wands, squeaky mice, and trackballs. When I'm playing or running around, I frequently bounce up and down. I bounce onto things, and then back off.
- I am a real cuddlebug, just like Dragonheart. I LOVE to cuddle. My favourite spot to cuddle is in one of my humans' laps. At night, I like to cuddle up next to one of the humans, or tucked into an armpit. When there isn't a human available, I love to cuddle with Dragonheart. The best cuddling of all is when both of us are in one of our humans' laps.
- I am teething, so I love to chew on things. My humans have sprayed bitter apple on the various cords that are exposed, so that I don't hurt myself. I have a couple of teething toys that are good for chewing, plus cardboard boxes are good to chew, as are some of my other toys. My humans only keep "safe" toys out for me to play whenever I want to. Other toys are played with under supervision only.
- I like to eat animal crackers! One of my humans holds an animal cracker out for me, and I nibble at it, a bit at a time.
- I don't like being separated from Dragonheart. When he was sick, and I was confined to the kitten nursery, I would stand at the door and meow and whine. One of my humans had to stay in the nursery with me so that I wouldn't throw myself against the door.
- Unlike most Sphynx, who have very short hair on their ears, my ears are totally naked, except right around the edges! Like all Sphynx, I have fur on the bridge of my nose. I also have a little bit of fur on my scrotum (goodie-sack) and some short, sparse hairs on my tail.
