Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)

I got MERCEDES as a youngster, about 6 months old. He was pure grey with green eyes. I thought he was the most beautiful cat that I had ever owned. Great with my kids, who were ages 10 and 2 at the time. The only problem I had was that at night, Mercedes like to go carousing around the neighborhood and get in fights with the cats who lived in the house behind us. Unfortunately, I had to leave town for a short while and leave him in the care of a family member. When I returned, two months later I was told that Mercedes got into a fight again, but this time he never came home. I tried to make a joke about it saying that it was probably because I named him Mercedes, but he was a boy! He was a great cat during the day, but I guess he got frustrated by night and needed to let off some steam, under the circumstances.
