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.
