Merlin (my beautiful, fluffy ragdoll cat) is almost 7 years old! It still feels like only yesterday that we picked him up from the breeder and he was so tiny. I knew from our first moment that we would be best of friends, which sounds awfully cheesy, but it’s so true. And I’m not alone; according to the Petplan Pet Census 2018, 41% of owners refer to their pet as their best friend, and 44% call their pet their “baby”.. which…
