Merlin - Port Haywood, VA

Meet Merlin!  He is a 12-13 yr old, 12 lb neutered male cat.

Merlin is a lovely senior cat who was removed from a home because of inhumane living conditions. He is a sweet boy and very affectionate.


Merlin had a soft-tissue sarcoma removed about 11 months ago. This is a cancerous mass.  The prognosis is that there was a good chance it would resurface in 7-9 months but he is now 11 months out with no sign of a new tumor.


He is FIV/FeL negative and up on vaccinations. If the tumor returns and the foster wants it removed, we will pay to do that. Meanwhile he would love to spend his time in a home rather than a cage in a shelter!! Merlin is good with other animals and with kids. 

If you would open your home to Merlin, please call: 804-695-7772  or email: doryruth2@gmail.com.  Merlin's rescue would like him to stay relatively local.
