I have 8GR8 Cats!

The first being a large solid black girl who showed up on our doorstep at approximately 1 year old, about 5 years ago and wooed and charmed us until we made her a part of our lives. She's a DLH... possibly a Persian or a Maine Coon Mix. She is our Puff-Kitty Silhouette. 10/97-at first sighting

Then we adopted 2 barnkittens DSHs our Sunshine and Moonlight! BD 8/18/98

Shortly after adopting Sunny & Moony we went to a Cat Fanciers' Assoc. Cat Show and saw Maine Coons and went wild!!! We agreed that if we should ever get another cat it would be a Maine Coon...

Fate had other plans for us and the next Spring, Sunny and Moony's mom had the most adorable longhaired progeny who looked for all the world JUST like a Maine Coonlet... He became our #4 cat (actually looks more like a Norwegian Forest Cat as a grown up) he is a VERY longhaired creamy classic tabby with white boy we call Furbert Leo Cappuccino... BD 4/1/99

My heart still longed for a Maine Coon though... I located a local breeder and we COONnected and I fell head over heels in love with my Lady Godiva Candy, brown classic tabby... Cat #5 BD 6/10/99

I really wanted a male MC as well so it wasn't long before our MC Lord Thomas Milton-blue classic tabby, joined our family! BD 11/25/99 Cat #6!

We began showing Tommy and Candy... which was great fun!

The breeder Eileen Lash and I became great friends and I would make my visit to see all of the litters and then decided perhaps I would get a breeding queen. I wanted a girl with the most potential for having the greatest number of different colored kittens... Eileen bred a blue girl to a red/silver with white and begat our Queen Rainbow Joy- blue/silver patched tabby with white. BD 7/14/00 #7

Joy grew up and it wasn't long before she was looking for love!!! She fell in love with our other cats' Tommy and Candy's father, Marty, and begat a litter of 4 kittens, Pride, Happiness, Love and Peace... on 12/15/01

Pride was our keeper because I wanted a red classic kitty and he was exactly what I wanted!!! Happiness-Mac & Lovey-both silver and white were adopted by a local wonderful family and Peace-brown went to live in Canada with a dear friend!!!

Before our stray cat Puff I had never been owned by a cat... I was 43 at the time!!! I'm making up for lost time you might say! I am very COONtent with my 8 wonderful cats... who have filled up all the cracks and crevices in my soul!!!

I am very interested in meeting those of you who love the Maine Coon breed, as well as other breeds and randomly bred/mixes as well...

I have a nice, very active group which you are welcome to join!

I love my orange Maine Goon, Oops I mean Maine Coon :D My big boy Mishi. He's ONLY 12.9 lbs., 2 years old and probably still growing. I just bought a web cam and will be playing with it tonight so hopefully very soon you can see my two wonderful fur beasts.

Im just an admirer of Main Coones and thats how it will have to stay, my allergy would not tolerate their beautiful long fur .
But i only came across this breed at our local cat show a few months ago, and i was stunned by their beauty, i love all cats, but i have to say the Main Coone is my favourite.
Your cats are awesome, love the pics , keep them rolling in.:)

OMG! Mishi would LOVE some Candy! :D however I think my little Miss Mitzi would be jealous. The web cam turned out to be a major flop and is going back to where it came from. Mishi did have fun watching me trying to get it to work, the big goon! He stretched out and "supervised" and even fluffed his tail at the camera so I could get a very fuzzy, dark, blur of orange tail fluff on my screen. I'm major bummed as I want to show off my big boy to y'all. :(

<Big Sigh> So I'll continue to work and try to save up some $$ for a real digital camera. Soon .... soon! My fur kids are just too cute and I want to show them off! ;)
