Thursday Thirteen: All About Merlin

13 Things About Merlin!

  1. I was born on September 2, 2007.

  2. I will be turning one next Tuesday, and I will officially be a Mancat!

  3. My litter had two girls and two boys, so I have one brother and two sisters!

  4. My breeder's Cattery name is MiracleLove.

  5. My registered name is MiracleLove Bijan, but my daily use name, as you all know, is Merlin.

  6. I am registered with TICA, The International Cat Association. So I have papers!

  7. My dam was MiracleLove X Opium and my sire was Majikmoon Wolfgang Ama Nudius.

  8. I came to live with my humans in my Forever Home on December 22, 2007, so my mom says I was an early Christmas present.

  9. I am a pointed Sphynx, so when I was born, I was white (pink), and then my points gradually developed and darkened as I grew older.

  10. I am a Seal Point and White Sphynx, with baby blue eyes.

  11. My favourite thing in the entire world is purring! I purr ALL the time. I love to purr!

  12. I'm a "daddy's boy" since Dragonheart has claimed our human mom. I prefer to curl up on my human dad whenever possible, but when he's not home, I'll curl up with our mom (if Dragonheart lets me) or with Dragonheart.

  13. After purring and cuddling, my next favourite thing is playing. I love to play with all kinds of toys, but my favourites are interactive toys, like wand toys, the Whirlybird, and our butterfly toy (the same toy that we sent to Kaze that she loves so much). I also like to get into the trash to find new and exciting toys to play with.
(The top three photos to the right are from my breeder when I was a baby kitten living with him, and the bottom one is from my first day in my Forever Home.)

I hope that you will all stop by next Tuesday to celebrate my birthday with me!
