Well,what can I say about my wonderful boy 'Merlin' as he is known at home.
Merlin comes from Diana Collings and I was originally only supposed to be getting his brother 'Mac'.
When looking at pictures of Mac one day on Dianas site ,I noticed that Merlin had again become available.
After a few pokes and pinches to my other half, the call was made to Diana to ask if we could have both boys. I was over the moon when she said yes.
Merlins first show was at 8 months old and he had a red card day. I was completely overcome as this was also our first show experience.
At his second show, Merlin was nominated for Best in Show and was best of Variety Semi Long haired cat and Merlins third show was also a red card day.
Merlin was confirmed to be the first green eyed Maine Coon to reach Premier status in the UK in November 2008.
On Saturday 8th May 2010,Merlin was awarded his third Grand Premier Certificate from Mr John Hansson.
It was confirmed with the GCCF on the 24th May 2010,that Merlin is the first green eyed , white Maine Coon to reach Grand Premier status within the UK,we are delighted!
I can never thank Diana enough for my wonderful boy who has brought me so much pleasure and introducing me to the fun world of cat showing which has given me very special friends all over the UK!
