These wonderful Maine Coon rescue stories are sure to brighten your day! Every day we receive new additions to our Monthly Photo Album. Most of these are nice, short introductions to a cat.
But sometimes we get a long get-to-know you kind of story. Even better, some of these are happy ending "tails" about a Maine Coon or Maine Coon mix that almost didn't have a home. Enjoy!
