Merlin was ten years old when his owner became unable to care for him. He was transitioning to a skilled nursing facility and heartbroken that he needed to surrender his beloved pet. Merlin has a few health problems, including an overactive pancreas. This can sometimes be a sign of a more severe underlying condition like gastrointestinal cancer. We are doing our best to make sure he’s comfortable, happy, and enjoying his golden years. A mellow, independent yet affectionate cat, he is happy to greet and socialize with guests, but will go the extra step and give a little more to the people he bonds with. His favorite place to be is out on his catio and sitting on your lap.
