The legend of Merry the cat begins
sometime in 1999, when he was born. Details in his
first year are obscured, but he was given up for
adoption with his brother sometime in the year 2000.
On September 22 2000, a human male named
Darren Enns decided that it
was time to re-devote his life to the service of cats.
Merry and his brother Pippin were adopted from the Winnipeg
Rescue Shelter that day.
Merry passed away quietly the morning of
January 25, 2019. He was 19 years old, and loved very
much. He will be missed dearly by Darren, and also his
cousin Theo. He was predeceased
by his brother Pippin in 2009. Darren is a Christian,
and as such is confident of Heaven one day.
He hopes that the Lord will see fit to re-unite him
with Merry once he is there!
Just this side
of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
