Max (Maximilian)

by Gabriela Falconer
(The Colony, TX, Denton County)

Jan 8, 2017:

Max is a black, tan, and gray tabby Maine Coon adult. We are not sure exactly how old, but around 6-8 years old. He is de-clawed and was a rescue from a kill shelter by our dear friend Carrie. He was already de-clawed when he came to her.

We would love to keep him but we are a full house and he his not getting the attention he needs. We already have 2 dogs and 3 cats and brought him to our family at the end of June 2016. His is a sad story. His human mama, Carrie, was in a severe accident while riding her horse one weekend in late June 2016 that left her in a vegetative state.

When we learned she was in the accident and her state, we fostered him. She adored Max and we wanted to make it work since she is dear to our family and we are animal lovers.

Over the last few months there's been a lot of obstacles with our other cats picking on him, specifically, whenever he uses the litter box. He's been so scared to go that he will go to the restroom around the house not anywhere near the litter box.

The only way we've been able to give him a safe space to use the litter box is by putting it in our guest bathroom for about a half hour to do his business. In there he goes no problem, every time.

He is the
sweetest and most loving cat we've ever had, and so intelligent (found a way into the sealed dog food container). Loves getting groomed with a metal bristle brush. He gets separation anxiety, needs a lot of attention and love.

It's hard to part with him and we want to be sure that he goes to a good home with someone who will love him as much as we do and Carrie does. He's great with other animals but hard due to him being de-clawed, loves people and kids.

Please only seriously interested parties, text message or email.

Looking to adopt a Maine coon.
by: Jan K.

I'm interested in all Maine Coons. I can only have one where I live. I'm retired and love cats. I've had them all my life, but now I'd like to have Coon. I live alone. No children or pets. These pets are beautiful cats. Let me know how to proceed from here. Would like to adopt before the cold sets in.

Still Available?
by: Anonymous

I recently lost my adult Maine Coon, Blue. I miss him so much! I am an older, retired lady and I need a lap companion. Max looks so much like my "Blue." I would be very interested in adopting him if he is still available.I would give him a very loving home with lots of attention.

Sha Sha needs a new home

Sha Sha needs a new home

posted on July 22, 2018:

I am a fellow rescuer in Beaumont Texas and there is always a story.

My brother in law has an acquaintance who rescued this cat about 3 yrs ago. She has been altered and is very loving toward him, but has gotten progressively aggressive with the other resident cats to the point that he feels it is best to find her another home where she can be the only cat.

He was in the process of taking her to the local animal shelter where her time there would be short, due to limited space, it is not a NO KILL!! So there is a high probability she would be euthanized within a few days.

So being a rescuer of course they contacted me. I feel it best to get her into a rescue or an only cat home. He said she loves to get in his she loves her person.In order to adopt her... a vet check and home visit will be required, as well as references. Adoption Fee: $100.00

Interested in Sha Sha
by: Linda

If you think Sha Sha fits the requirements for a handicapped lady.....heres the story...

I would be interested in adopting a Maine coon/mix. Let me rephrase that.... I have a disabled friend that I am helping to find a cat for her to adopt. (I would pay the fees)

This lady is 33 years old and was involved in a terrible accident that left her permanently disabled. (2012) They told her she would never walk or talk again due to traumatic brain injury. She not only walks and talks but holds down a job now ;-) She has progressed with leaps and bounds and only God knows her struggles.

This cat would be an emotional support cat eventually. My friend is able to live on her own here in our apartment complex near Texas Motor Speedway. She has no family here in Texas and is quite alone.

She desperately needs a companion. She loves animals and fell in love with my two dogs. Originally she thought she would like to have a dog but after talking about it with her I think a cat, specifically a Maine coon would be ideal.

I have owned a Maine coon mix that adopted me after hurricane Katrina in 2005 when I worked in New Orleans for Fema. The personality of the Coonie is why I feel it would be ideal for Shawna. She has had some very dark times and I really believe she needs someone to love, care for and comfort her when she is "down".

I so admire this young woman as she has come so far since her accident. For the last 3 years she had a job about a mile from the apartment. She walked to and from work every day!!! But now she started a new journey with a new job right next door to our apartment complex .

Specifically I/we would like a female kitten or young cat that could grow with her.

Thanks and God Bless!!

Jax is a beautiful, adult, Maine Coon, tabby mix. He's an indoor cat, weights 14 lbs and is 9 years old.

I rescued him 8 years ago from the Humane Society. He takes a bit to warm up to strangers, but is very loving to his family and is very talkative and playful.

It is with a heavy heart we post this, but feel he'd be happier in an adult only home (we now have a young child). He's had all of his shots, is neutered and litter box trained.

Pretty is a TNR (trap, neuter, release) that I took care of for 2 years in my backyard. She has been in my house for 3 more years.

She is semi-feral still, but one of the sweetest cats I have ever known. Once she gets used to you, she will head-butt you, gaze lovingly at you, sit in your lap, and sleep with you.

I was recently away for 9 months and since I have been back home with her, I realize how allergic I am to her.

She is great with other cats. She will bath and care for other cats, in fact. I don't know about dogs or children.

I don't know if she is male or female, I have just always called her "Pretty" and female because she is so pretty.

We would LOVE to be Pretty's new parents
by: Rita Palfreyman

I am elderly and stay home all day. I live with my adult son and he has a cat named Booger and Booger really needs a playmate. My son's first cat was a rescue that was a
Mainecoon and he loved her dearly until she passed of old age. I purchased a Mainecoon from an individual who said her husband wouldn't let her keep her. Unfortunately she failed to tell me Pepper had health issues. One night when Pepper and Booger were running and playing Pepper died of a heart attack. It really upset my son and I became we had fallen in love with her. And she was only about 18 months old. We only had her about six months. At least, she got to run and play with Booger and have fun before she passed.

Please consider my son and I when choosing Pretty's new home.

Thank you very much 😊

Sweet Kitty

by Debbie Longanecker
(Dallas, TX, USA)



Dec 13, 2016:
Kitty was dropped off in the neighborhood, left in a cat carrier in a neighbors front yard a few weeks ago.

Kitty hasn't warmed up to caretakers trying to check out it's gender but does purr when he/she can be near you. We don't know if abandonment has caused this skittish behavior or if Kitty is naturally shy.

Kitty is beautiful cat, seems healthy, and has a beautiful coat.

Hopefully someone will recognize him/her or want to invite Kitty into their home.

Cloud & Storm

by Joseph & Bette Macaluso
(Boerne, TX)

June 22, 2015:

We have two feral kittens. They are females about 12 weeks old.
Both have been spayed, received all their shots and are micro chipped via Hill Country Animal League in Boerne.

We canot keep them and would like them placed for adoption at a no kill shelter.

Cloud (the cream colored one) should be easily domesticated. Her sister Storm will take a bit more patience.

Please contact us.
Thank You,
Bette and Joe Macaluso
