    Pics of Mario

    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...)

    Oh be still my heart, what a handsome lad! I would be SO tempted to give that belly a rub!

    I learned quickly that nothing goes on top of the fridge -- except cats! LOL

    So happy he has a lovely home with you.
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Oh, Mario! You are purr-ecious! I would love to pet your beautiful fluffy coat any time. Intelligent and adorable, what a wonderful combination!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    He so handsome and looks so relaxed in his home. Thanks for sharing his pictures with us. He could also be a Norwegian Forest Cat mix. This is what I was told that my Sky is.

    What a gorgeous young man! I think Sunny might be preparing a love letter, he has the same tabby markings as her, they can be short haired and long haired together. The perfect match!

    When I saw Mario's first picture, my first thought was PURRSONALITY! It's easy to see what a love muffin he is. And so handsome! Sending you lots of scritchies and lovies

    He is a big snuggly boy, yes . He's trying to cuddle as I type this- which usually ends in him laying on my laptop as if to say, "Hey! Hey lady! Give me love now!".

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    They do look quite similar! I have heard that breed is similar to the coon.

    Oh, what a love bug! And those beautiful big feetsies....

    Welcome HOME, Mario!

    Death thought about it.
