Some cats thrive on lots of action and others have a laid back nature, and the family that adopted me discovered that I’m the latter (they said, “Mercury needs a more relaxed and quiet environment”). I guess a home with two active kids and another cat was more than I could handle, as I’m basically a quiet, relatively shy guy who just wants to be with his person (on laps preferably). I’m not the “carry-me-around-the-house” type, but do love to snuggle and am a playful critter when the urge overtakes me! I’m started out as a kitten here at TALGV last year, and now I’m 10 months old and oh-so-ready to have a tranquil life where it’s just “me and my gal” (or guy — I’m not too particular!).
