I've only had him for one year, but in that one year he became my best friend in so many ways. It's almost like he and I are kindred souls who came together after years of being alone and apart. You see we found one another and it was love at first sight for the both of us. He was mine and mine alone. He tolerated the rest of the family and neighbors, but loved no other but me. Merlin made this known in so many different ways. He came only to me for attention, he slept with me each night, he stayed with me in bed when sick. He ignored the entire family but me. Even on the nights Trucker was home and we shared a bed, Merlin would sleep between us, showing his dominance until you literally made him move. Then upon moving he swapped to the other side of my pillow, put his head next to mine, placed one paw under my head, and the other rested upon my face. He actually hugged me all night long. I could feel his whiskers gently brushing and tickling my nose. He had become a great love in my life and will always hold a huge spot there.He never ventured far from home as he is neutered and declawed. He thought he owned are driveway for naps. He literally would not move off the pavement till you got out of the car, walked over to him, and took your foot and pushed him over into the grass. He would only look up and almost smile at you for having made you do this. Yes, he is just that way. I didn't realize when this past Friday came about and I let him outside for the day, as I have done for the past year, that that would be the last time I seen my best friend. He wasn't laying in our driveway when I got in from work that night. I left early Saturday morning and upon returning home that night Trucker asked me if I had seen him and when the last time was. Merlin never returned home Saturday or all day yesterday. We believe the neighbors who lived behind us (who moved out over the weekend) stole him from us. Our neighbor (who lives right next door) also has had one of her kittens missing since Friday as well. I spoke to the landlady who rented the house yesterday, she is trying to find them as well, they skipped out on rent. If she is able to find them she offered to see if they had a white long haired cat and then will tell us where they are. I hope and pray she finds those people and Merlin finds his way home.
