I own a Maine Coon Cat. He is now 6 years old.. He had 2 sisters but they were taken and his mother was put up for adoption. She was pregnant with 3 kittens and her owners obviously didn’t want any kittens so they dropped her off on our college campus. That is how I got Bear. He doesn’t like to be held will only stand at arms length to be petted, but he sure does talk a lot. He follows me like a shadow talking the entire time. He loves snuggling up to my little female tiger kitten I got 3 months before I got him, She was 4 weeks when I took her and Bear was 6 weeks when I took him. He is 37-1/2 inches from tip of nose to tip of tail. His fur is really long and hi9s tail is so full. He would love to be outside, but I live in the city apts so he can’t go outside.
how can you read that I can’t even read it with my glasses on
Had a Maine coon…………. showed up on the back porch one day, about 6-8 weeks old I’d guess. Baddest cat east of the Mississippi. Lasted 18 years til the vet screwed up and killed him by giving him worm meds before he came outta anesthesia, choked to death.
Have had a Maine Coon for over 12 years. Lola was a rescue, originally the family bought her from a breeder but their autistic son began to get a bit rough with her. We got her at 2 months. She is a lap cat, mannerisms more of a dog—faithful to those she trust, follows you around non stop, talative—chirps. Will lay in between doorways if we are in different rooms, loving, amazing with her paws–she hasn’t eaten with them from day one. She’s 27 from tip of tail to nose, 15lbs, and per the vet a perfect picture of health. Adores sleeping on her back and is loving and nurturing like a dog. She’s an indoor cat, but has a hunter instinct—she snuck out once and grabbed a field mouse with one flick of a paw and slit it’s throat. She didn’t toy with it. She’s not aloof and she is can’t be taught almost anything. If you love dogs but don’t have the space, get a Maine Coon.
My mainecoon is a one cat person. She is very lovey but can be very mean at the same time. She is the Queen of the house, just like her momma
I found my cat in a ditch when she was only days old. She was lifeless and cold with her cord still attached. A lot of vet visits, a lot of trail and error in finding the milk she could handle, but a year later she is a interesting animal. Her name you ask? Princess Tigeress. She is a perfect loving cat when she wants to be and a tiger other times. She weighs in at 21lbs. She is beautiful to look at, has a awesome coat, and I wouldn’t trade her for the world.
