Check out Merlin's Videos!

Meet Merlin: he's 7 pounds of pure Tuxedo cat magic, and he's ready to cast a spell on you.

Merlin craves affection, and defies all those aloof feline stereotypes. He will lie blissfully in your arms, gazing up at you with his enchanting green eyes. And at night, he will cuddle against you as he drifts off into kitty dreamland.

Not only does Merlin love people, he also exhibits zero fear of the easy-going, 60-lb dog in his foster home. He has even started to copy the actions and behavior of his best canine buddy. Maybe he's working on his shapeshifting powers? Either way, Merlin seems to have taken quite a liking to his canine roommate! He seems interested in his foster's resident cat too, though she's not so sure about him so far. You can't charm 'em all!

Merlin had a rough start to life before coming to his current foster, but that hasn't changed his good nature. He suffered from a broken tail and a neurological injury, which mostly make him extra excited and chatty at mealtimes, and a little sensitive about the touching of his hindquarters. But can you blame a guy? None of this slows him down though, and he's a master feather wand hunter to boot.

Merlin would do best in a home with a cat-experienced adult or adults, with plenty of soft surfaces for this special guy.

A little bit of love and affection goes a long way, and we feel that Merlin will truly shine with the right family. If you're seeking years of conjured up purrs, tender paw taps, and lots of love (without the need for a love potion), Merlin may be the perfect cat for you.

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
