It’s been a little over two years since I’ve had Merlin! I got him on September 5, 2011, and I think he was born sometime around May or June? He was a rescue – I literally read an ad on Craigslist about this couple who found him at their lake house and wanted to find him a home before they moved back down south. They called him a “handsome” kitten, and I was sold. Anyway, I have no idea of his exact age.
But I found these pictures from when I first got him and can’t believe how much he’s grown! Merlin now weighs about 16 pounds (of pure feline muscle).
