Left In A Woodpile!

Our beautiful little girl, Amazing Grace, Mazy for short , was found along with her siblings, and found by someone on the property doing bulldozer work.

These gorgeous little furballs were placed on Craigslist as free, needing a good home. Since this location was near my daughter's town, I decided to stop and take a look.

There she was, the only calico of the bunch, and with a vet reference, I brought her home a week later. I had no idea what a Maine Coon cat really was, other than long haired.

I have had cats all my life, I'm nearly 60 and born and raised on a farm. So, I looked up the breed, because Mazy was so totally different....big fluffy feet, fluffy fur around her neck, loves the cold, ADORES running water, and chatters alot. She took right to my 2 yr old shelter cat Lucy right away.

She is now 17 months old and just FULL of energy. My husband says she is the most interesting cat EVER.

So, Maine Coon in part, or maybe just looks the part, she is ours forever. She can fetch and play frisbee, and I can't believe there are people who just throw pets away...remember, SPAY/NEUTER!!

Mazy is a beautiful cat. Fate brought you together and you will always appreciate each other for the joy you bring to each other's lives.

Thank Heavens for People Like YOU!!

I love your story about your precious little Mazy and I am sure that she is so thankful that she was rescued by an angel! I rescued my first Maine Coon kitty just 3 months ago and she will be 1 year old next week. You are so RIGHT...they are different kitties in all of the best ways! My husband said the same thing that yours did about how unique they are. These kitties just bring such joy and spirit into your home. I had to laugh when you mentioned that she is 17 months old and FULL OF ENERGY....our little Lucy is loaded with spunk and energy too. If I have to scold the dog, she even goes up to him and repeats what I said "in kitty chatter" to him. Its nice to know that she will continue to be curious, adventurous, water-seeking and fun...Enjoy your sweetheart!!
