Black Tabby Tuesday

Merlin is a black domestic short hair male who was with the Fluffy Tribe when they started blogging in 2005. At the time he was living with Shadow, a gray Panther, and the "vermin" (his word), but the tribe has expanded with the addition of a meezer named Ko Ko.

The tribe now also includes a bunny and spider, all of which live in Hobbs, Mexico.

They blog at the Rats and Cats blog, which you might care to skip if photo of spiders and rats gross you out.

Merlin is very magical and loves to read and study. He supposedly knows some magical spells as well, although none of them have got him into the rat cages yet.

Here are a couple of cat facts that I thought were interesting and you would enjoy:

A cat's hearing capability is five times greater than that of a human. However, at about 5 years of age, this capability lessens somewhat. A cat can rotate its ears 180 degrees and can locate the source of a sound ten times faster than the most capable watchdog.

A cat can not see directly under its nose. This is why it sometimes can not quickly find treats thrown on the floor.

Have you ever noticed a paper-thin translucent material covering your nails? These are called nail sheaths and are a normal part of your claws. When you scratch on wooden posts, tree trunks or scratching posts (FURniture) it is in part to facilitate the shedding of the worn-out claw sheath.
