Remembering Merlin, my dear old soldier



It is 5 years today since my darling Merlin went to sleep. I still miss you sweetheart and your Daddy and I often speak about you with much fondness.

Absolutely Dinky. I miss our little Chubbiz everyday. All cats are special but some are a little bit more special. Sounds like Merlin was one of those. He was a very handsome chap.

Re: Remembering Merlin, my dear old soldier


Thank you Dinky and FM - Merlin was a very special cat here in Catseyland. He was the reason I joined in 2007 as he had long-standing urinary problems but he managed to reach 23.5 years before he went to sleep. That's why I call him my "old soldier". On the forum, he was known as Uncle Merlin.

A truly special boy indeed and much loved.He shared a large part of your life angieh and you will never forget him, which is exactly as it should be. I firmly believe that one day you will see your beloved "old soldier" again. In the meantime, he lives on in your heart.

Re: Remembering Merlin, my dear old soldier


Wow, that's one of the oldest cats I've ever heard of. Chubz was only 14 when he died but he went peacefully. I lied on the bed with him holding his paw and he purred and went to sleep. I still see him sometimes, especially if we are gardening, it was his duty to supervise all new planting and give a tour of inspection before giving his purr of approval.

Re: Remembering Merlin, my dear old soldier


Thanks all for your kind comments. PP - it is still quite raw with you, Posh going. Time does dull the pain and of course with Merlin I have so many years of memories as he was only about 10 weeks old when he came to me. I regret that digital photography hadn't been invented then, he was such a very pretty kitten and had such big ears, which he grew into. We have a few photos of him, but they aren't very good quality sadly.
