For some it’s not a good Friday, so spare a thought this morning for poor Merlyn, the cat of reader daveau. As you read this, Merlyn’s on his way to the vet for excision of the family jewels. Daveau, as you may recall, was the owner of Kitteh Contest entries Bryxie and Keeshu. Daveau’s introduction:
Meet Merlynus. He came into our lives 6 weeks ago as a 4-1/2 month old kitten. This little guy is an unholy terror; dashing through the house on top secret kitteh missions, knocking over plants, scattering papers, upending food dishes, guarding fish tanks and perplexing the adult kittehs. Cuteness is his weapon.
Merlyn is a British Shorthair, from the same general bloodline as his great-great-(etc)-aunt Bryxie, who died a little over a year ago. Not a substitute, mind you, but enough like her to make us smile at the memories, and enough different that he will have his own special place in our hearts.
LAST CHANCE TO SEE!
