The smartest 8oz. attention whore . . .

Yes, the smartest 8oz. attention whore in this town is – – – MERLIN! Of course, I am writing about our new furball.

This cat really is an attention whore, too. If he’d been a girl, we’d have been forced to name him either Paris or Lindsey! Yes, he’s that bad!

He still doesn’t care for cameras, but he totally insists on being the center of attention. Even when he’s sitting in my lap, I can be petting him with one hand, and trying to read email with the other. Not good enough – he wants that other hand to pet him, too!

As for him being smart, he’s already figuring out some of the games I play with him. I was making “shadow puppets” for him to chase, but he figured out that those shadows came from somewhere, and now when he sees a moving shadow, he starts looking for where my hands are, to play with them instead.

He’s getting stronger every day, too. When we first brought him home, he couldn’t jump down from either the coffee table or the cot in my office. Now, he’ll not only jump down from them, but he’ll climb my pants leg to get into my lap! (note to self – no wearing shorts around the house until he’s strong enough to JUMP into my lap!)

Ok. I’ll admit it. In less than three days, he’s managed to take complete ownership of his humans! We totally love him, and I’m wondering why we didn’t adopt one long ago! I’m even forgiving the accident at 4:30 am CST, when he used me for a bathroom. After all, he’s only 6.5 weeks old, and never been an indoor cat before. He’ll learn!

  1. Lesson #1 – litter box good, human’s clothes bad
    lesson #2 – keep claws in when playing with humans 😀
    He sounds like he catches on quickly, tho’, and is a real charmer.
