Cannot figure this cat out or his owner.....

Well, this cat has being totally confused. I decided to put a matte pink collar, with glitter on him. Merlin decided to spend last weekend on the porch, all weekend, day and night.  He seemed depressed and ate like a pig.

Well, the owner has decided to let Merlin keep the collar on.  Apparently, Merlin has decided to kill a lizard and share the find with me on Monday, at 4am.  Additionally, Merlin decided to also wake me up at 3:15am, for food.

I will pay anyone to take this cat off of my hands, with a month supply of food.

Overdue Posting

Sorry it has been a while since I posted here. I mean, there is only so much you can post about a spoiled rotten, ungrateful cat....

Lately, Merlin is letting the squirrels eat his food, while he is two feet away. What cat lets a squirrel eat his food?

He also let's a specific stray cat eat his food. This stray appears to be a mix between a stray cat and a lynx cat.  Did I mention that he is just as big as Merlin, and Merlin is around 22 pounds.

He also has a thing for lizards or geckos. He apparently wipes out the lizard population, and brings them to me as a gift.  This, of course, he does this at 3 am, and is the only time he actually meows loud enough for me to hear him.

He will not shut up till I open the sliding door and inspect his catch of the day:  A dead lizard.

I plan on putting another pink collar on him, with rhinestones.  Some of my co-workers suggested that paint a purple or pink mohawk on him, with one on those washout dyes.

However, since I live in Texas, the owner might feel compelled to shoot me for defacing her cat.  For safety reasons, I will stick to the collar, and put a note on it, to see if the owner will read it and respond.

After all, I am taking care of her cat as well by spending my hard earned money on food.

Just completed a Pet CPR Class, Merlin will be my first 'victim to resuscitate'

Just completed my first Pet CPR class yesterday.  When I got home, Merlin was in rare form.  He kept scratching at my window, in spite of a full bowl of food, and fresh water.  This went on from 4pm to 12 midnight.  Every time I tried to go out there to play with him, he would run, and hide, and when I closed the door, he came back again. I think somebody slipped some drugs to that cat.

Finally I ignored him the rest of the night.  He eventually went home, hopefully to the bowels of hell, where he came from.  I mean, what the f**k is wrong with this cat?  Now I understand why his owner lets him out.  We all know who runs Merlin's household, both his permanent home and my home.

I think that I will be renting Merlin out to people to catch mice.

Merlin has quite the attitude....

Today, I brought Merlin in, to get him out of the cold.  Anyway, the stinkpot, must be in a bad mood.  Buttercup, his girlfriend, came up to greet Merlin and Merlin hissed at Buttercup.  Bugs, decided to defend Buttercup's honor and recieved a hissing of his own.

Unfortunately for Merlin, due to his bad attitude, got banished back to the outdoors.

Bugs and Buttercup were emotionally traumatized and given treats.  Merlin will be cut off from food till he annoys me again at 3am...

Where the hell did the owner of Merlin, get this cat?   Merlin can be quite ungrateful.....

Merlin is an official lap cat, if you can tolerate his weight....

Merlin has finally let me put him on my lap, but he is so big, that he basically flops around my lap that you need  to put a pillow first on your lap, otherwise, he will fall off or break your pelvis.

New milestone with Merlin

As suspected, Merlin comes to visit, half for the food and half for the attention.  He must be eating elsewhere, because he is officially losing his neck.

Lately, he is coming into my apartment, on his own.  He will rub against me, and place himself halfway into the apartment.

Unfortunately, it has to be his idea to come in, go figure.

Re: Reimbursement for feeding Merlin....

Since Merlin has obviously chosen my home as his secondary food source, does that give me the right to get reimbursed from his existing owner, for the food I am spending on him?

Alternatively, if I use pictures of Merlin or if Merlin makes me money, either from photos or a cat show, am I obligated to share part of the revenue with his owner?
