Meriadoc is one of two identical cats (the other being Peregrin) who we got through a shelter a few weeks back. I have absolutely no idea about his breed; he carries traits from several breeds, so he’s a bit of a mongrel. I think he might be distantly related to my other cat Princess because they both have long-haired and poofy tails, compared to their shorter body coat. Princess’ fur is definitely much softer than Merry’s, and she also has much more of a mane, but on the other hand Merry has the pointed ear tips.

For now Merry can be a domestic medium hair with dilute Snowshoe traits. Personality-wise, Merry fits him perfectly. He’s incredibly sociable and will even stand-to and let Caira give him attention.
