Throwback Thursday – Merlin

Buddies Throwback Thursday - MerlinMeet Merlin, the star of this week’s Throwback Thursday.

19-month-old, British Shorthair cat Merlin, has been with Buddies team member Clare and her family since he was just 8 weeks old.

Merlin joined the family from a breeder based in Northampton. As Merlin was brought home on Christmas Eve, the kids believe Santa’s elves brought him.

‘Merlin thinks he is a dog. He loves to catch flies, he jumps in the bath, he plays fetch with a ball and he steals any food that contains cheese!’

Buddies Throwback Thursday - Merlin‘He doesn’t like litter trays so he poo’s outside of them and once wee’d on his Dad’s leg when he was sleeping. He is an extremely naughty cat and once hid all my cleaning sponges behind the sofa so I had to buy new ones until I discovered it was him taking them.’ Says Clare.

Merlin is from a famous bloodline. His great grandad is the face of Whiska’s cat food. Merlins great grandad was a show cat and was discovered at an event.

‘Merlin can’t take part in shows because he is far too disobedient even though he is beautiful.’ Adds Clare.

Merlin even has his own facebook and Instagram profiles. You can find him by searching for ‘Merlin The Naughty Cat’.

We are always on the lookout for #FriendsOfBuddies to feature in our posts. If you have a dog or cat, and would like to share their throwback photos, please email Becks @ Hello@Buddies.co.uk.
