This is Merlin with his favorite toy, Fishie. Merlin started out life as a feral kitten. He somehow hooked up with three younger kittens and was trying to care for them when a nice lady found the four of them and took them to her vet. Merlin was eight weeks old and the others were five to six weeks old.  She kept one of the younger ones and the other two younger ones were also adopted. The lady told Merlin's Mom-to-be the story and the two of them went to the vet's to see him. Merlin and his Mom took to each other at once and he went home with her. Merlin loves to play, look out of the window and romp around with his new brother Dobby.

                                         Merlin's favorite toy is named Fishie.
                                         It's shaped like a fish and is nice and squishy.
                                                              Merlin could play
                                                               All night and all day
                                         With his favorite toy named Fishie.

I have a toy like this too. It hides in the laundry basket and comes out about twice each year. I only use it for about five minutes at a time before I get bored, as I remember it from before. Cats have good memories.
Nice limerick.
