Merlin the Magic Cat (1973-1991) was/is my familiar spirit. Mute from birth, he communicated with his soulful eyes. He loved me unconditionally, and still watches over me from across the Rainbow Bridge. He loved to ride on boats and in my truck and walked on the beach with me. He weathered hurricanes and stormy relationships with me, never waivering in his devotion. May you too, be gifted with such a four-legged person in your life!
