Mario is a ten year old maine coon cat (we THINK). When the humane society found him, his whiskers were burnt off- thought to be the work of some punk kids. Probably as a result, he is usually skiddish around strangers, but with us? He's the perfect cat.

He has always been playful and curious, jumping up on top of our fridge and knocking down priceless vases. He's also intelligent- we taught him how to shut off the bathroom light when we tap it.

Soft, adorable, just an all-around love. I get lots of pictures of him, so I wanted to share some (down below!) .

When I'm paying too much attention to the computer..

Sly cat look

Crossed paws

He loves belly rubs (for 10 seconds before he hits you...)
