Nana just called Mommy and broke the news to her - Merlyn is gone. He went to the Bridge this morning. We posted about Merlyn before but we'll tell you about him again. He was Mommy's kitty - she got him when she was 17 years old and he was also brother to Smudge who went to the Bridge exactally a month ago today. He did not live with us because he wanted to stay with Nana and Grandpa when Mommy moved out and got married, but he was still Mommy's special kitty.
Mommy named him Merlyn because when he was a kitten he could teleyport! Really! Just like a wizard!! He would walk out of a room one way and then POOF! he would be on the total other side of the room before you would knew it and you'd have no clue how he got there! He was also best friends with Midnight (pictured above) who left us a few years ago and we are sure that Midnight is happy to see him (his sister Smudge too). Merlyn was a great kitty and we know Mommy will miss him lots. Nana said that Grandpa found the beautiful grey kitty this morning and thinks that he laid down and went to sleep and then left for the Bridge. he had been sick for a while and was getting old. We know he's happier now.
Mommy cannot stop crying! We're going to try to help her to feel better but this is THREE beloved pets that have went to the Bridge in the last month and she keeps saying "I cannot take anymore! Please let this be the last one!!" We know tommorow is Meow Like a Pirate Day and that we invited all of you kitties out on the Black Furrball with us, but we just don't know if we'll be able to go out now. It will depend on how Mommy feels. Please purr for her and for Merlyn.
