Lil' fellers are CUUUTE!! 😻

I had a tuxedo tabby that made it to 18. Ozzy was his name. Fiesty little guy - a real PITA at times, but loved him nonetheless.

No doubt. To test genetics for breedability for that many animals is not cheap.

You have a beautiful Maine Coon, but for some reason he doesn’t look much like my daughter’s cat. They got him 4 years ago and he is a madly loving cat. I was worried that she might be aggressive, especially towards my granddaughter, but they quickly became friends :)

Pretty cat. The breed is very good with children.

They are gentle, for sure. Ours spent Saturday morning playing with a mouse in the tub. He would take a break and go nap and then go back and play some more.

Yeah, they're an awesome breed. I used to pick mine up and hold him like a baby, legs up / back down, and he would just wink at you and purr. Loved that cat! All 21 pounds of him, lol.

Apple's search system SUCKS since a few updates back. Took me a bit to find some of the other pics.

You'd think just entering my cat's name would bring them up, since it's in every title ... but NO - that's too f'ing simple! :evil:

Computers!! The bane of my existence ...


Anyway ...

I heard that God sends people that don't like cats to Purrgatory.

My coon used to LAUNCH from the bathroom sink halfway across the house to try and catch our other cat, Inga at the time. Was a riot! POWERFUL legs!
