Happy #TwoForTuesday from Djamo and Eros! Christa Heyvaert in Belgium shares, Our Maine Coons were born on Sept 14, 2012 in cattery Matanny. Djamo is a Blue Tabby male, and Eros is a Black male. They came to live with us on Dec 8, 2012 and felt at home from the first moment.

There is a Maine Coon kitten scam going around. At first, I didn't even recognize it! I had noticed recently that on our FaceBook page, we began getting an occasional comment with a link to a pet service where kittens are available.
At first glance they look like a small hobby breeder. But it's a scam...
