Desi waiting for chow!

We got Desi aka Daisy, in July 2017 at 4 months of age. We thought we were adopting a female Coon but the first trip to the Vet resulted in our being told: congratulations, it's a boy!

After recovering from the news, we renamed Daisy, Desi, because of the close sounding name and the fact he/she was already answering to Daisy.

Desi is now 13 months old, about 17lbs and is our big boy. We adopted a female coon, Flashdance, about 6 months ago and she's a black tortie/white and she will be 4 years old next month on May 6th.

She weighs in around 14lbs. Of course, she's already made Desi her baby and grooms him constantly.

What a pair they make and are rarely found apart. Both talk to each other in their unmistakable Coon language and will sometimes try and include us in their conversations.

We plan to adopt on more in a few months, a kitten Black/White with a mustache like Desi's but for certain a female and we're going to name her Lucy.

Flash Dance

Flash Dance/ aka Flashy or Flash, is our latest addition to our growing coon family.

I sent a previous picture of our Desi, a Black and White Coon who turned 13 months kitty age on March 13th, 2018 and is already a big boy at 17 lbs.

Flash is a little more pristine befitting a beautiful lady and is the sweetest cat we've ever owned, and in 50 years of cat ownership, that's quite a few.

She immediately took to mothering Desi upon arrival into our home.

He actually likes it which was a little bit of a surprise to us how quickly he took to her and she to him.

They talk in that singular "coon" language constantly which is also quite amazing actually. We were told that Maine Coons have their own way of keeping the conversation going and boy was that an accurate assessment!

Flash is a retired purebred show cat and will be 4 years of age on May 6th, 2018. She is very active and is quite the runner and toy player.

She also likes to get into wrestling matches with Desi, and though larger, Desi is no match for her quickness. You go girl!
