Merle Haggard, a beautiful brown tabby Maine Coon kitten, was born August 23, 2018.  We loved Merle from the very beginning for many reasons: his beauty, sensitivity, loyalty, and his unique ability to make us laugh our hardest at his antics.  He could shake a paw, he would eat from our hands, he loved to splash in the sink, and his favorite game was peek-a-boo.  He was definitely one of a kind.  Merle died September 21, 2019, too young at one year and one month old.  Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) claimed him at a young age, as it does a small percentage of kittens and cats.  We want to make others aware of this fatal viral disease, and help raise money for FIP research at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in California.  Therefore, the profits for Merle's Candle will be donated there for this cause in Merle's memory.

Cold Stream Cattery

Merle's Candle is scented with Egyptian Amber fragrance oil, a rich, woody blend of five essential oils.  It was chosen for Merle's candle because it is high-end, rich, and complex, just as Merle was.  Merle was one classy cat.  My candles are made from soybean wax, a biodegradable, renewable, nontoxic, eco-friendly resource made from locally grown soybeans.  They burn approximately 50% longer than paraffin wax candles, are soot free, and throw a nice strong hot or cold scent.  We hope you'll help keep Merle's memory burning on, and by doing this, help us prevent others from experiencing this devastating disease.
