Just look at this gorgeous face. Merlot is our movie star cat, with her attention-seeking ways, even in the midst of another cat's photo shoot, here comes Merlot to block the camera’s view.
At about one year old, sweet Merlot is on the small side, all black with a dab of white on her chest, her thick sable-like coat can be addictive to the touch.
Whenever the opportunity arises, Merlot seeks out a lap, just wanting to be near. Her story: She entered into a cat trap meant for another, was not spayed and nobody claimed her.
Merlot is comfortable with being picked up and will approach even strangers for attention. We get a sense she wasn’t handled a lot because she is still cautious with being touched all over, but with guidance, this enjoyable cat will soon learn to trust completely.
Merlot has medium energy, on the quiet side and just learning to play. Her roommates are two laid back cats that she likes to be the boss of, which they are happy to oblige.
Like a fine wine, pour your love into her and Merlot will just get better with age.
