November 2013 Featured Coonies
November, a month to be thankful for all the love in our lives, including our furry family members!
Our Handsome Little "Bear"
After losing our beloved 1 year old maine Coon Kitten "Hunter" we were blessed with "Bear".
He's so manly yet adorable, frisky yet laid back & totally sweet!
He's follows everyone around just like a dog. He loves to lick the kids, mom and dad on the lips, sometimes for a snack but sometimes just for love.
So fast, curious and mischievous, he's just like a little bear cub. We love him soooo much!!!
I like to pose!
Callie The Cat
She came into our home two years ago.
She was found outside in a neighboring city. She is the life of our home and a very loving cat.
Our precious kitty - now 9 months old - 8.5 pounds of joy.
She has been at our beach house in Cherry Grove, Fire Island. she loves hanging out watching the birds. We toss her on our shoulders and go out the steps on the beach.
She loves the seagulls and the ocean and deer. she just sits on our laps and absorbs all around her. It's the only time she is a lap cat. We love her so.
Dulce (Baranchri Dulciana) is a 9 year old brown Tortoiseshell Maine Coon.
She has lived with us for 3 years now and clearly rules the roost!
Taz.. Basking In The Sun!
11yrs yound female... Taz. Very laid back, very lovable. Where I lay she's right under. Quite, playful, enjoys playing with her shadow and her brother Max, grey tuxedo tabby. She loves to hear me sing with the stare of those beautiful green eyes.
Please post my baby! She's the best Maine Coon one can own!
Cattery Maine Coon Re-Jan Moravia
Cattery Maine Coon Re-Jan Moravia. Czech Republic.
Augustus is a Coon Mix, he has beautiful tabby swirls. He's definitely a quirky little guy and breaks the standard maine coon personality.
Though he doesn't like to cuddle he loves to be near people and to be petted. He is still as playful as ever and loves to talk and talk. Can't believe I found such a great guy at the local shelter.
My Big Boy
There's lots yo say about this amazing animal. He is always hungry and loves to drink out of the faucet.
Loves to meow at the craziest hours. I live him so much... I even brought him a brother.
His brother Isaac lives him they get along great. Here are some pics if them hope you like...\
My beautiful Lucy Reflection of Ko, named after my other Maine Coon KoKo died a year ago at 12 yrs old.
It is and was painful. I do still have her brother not litter mates.. But same parents. I miss her so much...
Wally. Reflection of Love, the brother of my Lucy. I call him Big Boy.. As he is. All 19 lbs.. Is now12 yrs old. Very healthy .. He looks scarier than he is and walks like a lion.
Most people are a little freaked out when they first see him do to his size. He is a beauty!
Landan aka The Goobie Kitty
The Goobie Kitty in Vintage Stills
My handsome bearcat Landan, is a 7yr old Maine Coon that was adopted when he was just a little guy, he has grown into a large fuzzball at 19lbs!!!
Landan is a beloved 'city kitty' he & his Mum live on the top floor of an old bldng w/a massive view of the sky & all the 'tweet-tweets' that like to stop by just to drive the kitty crazy!!!
Landan is well-known in these parts as 'The Goobie Kitty', the nickname is fitting for him, because he loves to play practical jokes on his Mum& surprise her & make her spill her tea!!! So he soon became lovingly known as a silly, Goobie kitty!
The Goobie spends most of his lazy afternoons making forts out of various objects in the apt, he has a giant toy-box filled to the brim w/mousies of every smell, shape & color, but the Goobes prefers to play a game of fetch with a good old-fashioned plastic ring off the top of a gallon water bottle, (he must think hes a dog?)
When the day is at its end and the Goobie Kitty and his Mum are winding down, nothing quite takes the edge off like a nice bite from the Catnip plant & a cup of tea (for Mum).
The Goobie Kitty is a bona-fide 'nip-head' if theres ever been one, he just loves that stinky minty green plant, he gets all drooly& playful & his purr-box is turned on to the maximum volume, lol.
Sometimes The Goobie Kitty is soo goofy, he even mistakes the minty smell of Icy Hot ointment on his Mums tired shoulders with the smell of his much loved catnip & starts to lick the Icy Hot off his Mum (eewww).
Overall the Goobie Kitty has a pretty chill life, he hangs out with his little brother, Finnigan, the Betta fish, while Mum is at work. On special occasions you can even catch Goobie shakin a tale feather & dancing with his Mum to their favorite music, Jazz ^_^
Big Bad Max Nov 2013 Indy, IN
Max is 5 yrs old. Max used to have older yorkie bro 14 yrs old named Buddy who he absolutely loved. Buddy had to go to doggie heaven in Jan this year.
Max is all alone every day while mommy works ft. Every single day when mommy gets home and sits down on the couch Max is on her lap like magic and seems to just trap mommy down for the night.
Mommy got a piano delivered to her on a Sunday and she gave the piano all of her attention all day and evening and please enjoy the pic of where Max was when his mommy got home from work the following Monday!
Max's mom is an empty nester and Max is all she has. Max amazes his mom every single day from the purring to the flip floppin around on her lap and at her feet and Max sure seems to be very jealous of mom's attention!
Max will take a while to warm up to people but when he does he shows his love for you very quickly. Max's mom has thought about getting him another companion to have during the work days but Mom continues to decide not to as so it can always be just Max and his mom!
This is Mr Tigs, or Tigger :)
We aren't sure if he is a main coon but we have been told by various people that he could he a cross.
He has a gorgeous face and is main is definitely growing with the cooler weather. His tails represents a feather duster and his tufts between his paws let him slip and slide all over our kitchen tiles.
We love him to bits :) xx
We found Seamus at a shelter when he was about 12 weeks old. I had no idea what a Maine Coon even was.
A trip to the vet led me on to the fact that he may be Maine Coon. I started to do research on the breed. I definitely think he is a Coonie. He has many dog like mannerisms.
He is the most vocal cat I've ever met. He comes when I call his name and enjoys pets on the head and regular bushings.
While he is the laziest cat I have ever me he makes the most beautiful porch chair ornament a mom could ever ask for.
I love him to death!
I Think Our Cat Is Coon Or Part Coon,
Welcome to the gallery of Maine Coon cat pictures! Check out all the cats here, and click on a photo to read more about them.
These wonderful Maine Coon rescue stories are sure to brighten your day! Enjoy these happy ending "tails" about a Maine Coon or Maine Coon mix that almost didn't have a home!
Cotton is a neutered male around 4 years old.
He was given to me when he was a very small kitten, my neighbor just didn't want him, so he joined my family. He weighs 19lbs and is a very big "talker" :)
He makes these little noises when talking to me or my other cats. Almost like chirping, but I can always count on him for conversation! He is so funny when he plays, he chases his own tail :)
He's very affectionate and while some guests at my house say "Geez! He's huge!", we don't notice or even care :) He's just our biggest baby.
This is Boo. a few months ag and has been a part of ever ever since. People say he is very exotic looking.
Very fluffy ruff around is neck abd fluffy white hair from the ears. Most affectionate little guy but very small and unsure of age.
What made me first think that she might be a Maine Coon was that her ears are large and has a small amount of black hair at the top of her ears like many Maine Coons have, she also kinda has the same face.
I think the only thing that sets her apart is her hair is more short, she still has random lengths of hair but not so long. It seems her back and tail has the longest hair but her hair is not bushy. She does have the personality.
She does not mind water, she is starting to learn fetch, she is very smart and has the unique meows that Maine Coons have. My sister in law found the cat, she was trying to sneek into her house and would stay around her house for shelter and food so I took her in.
Me and my husband have been wanting a cat so we both took her and took care of her cause she was covered in fleas and she was alittle sick but much better and it has only been 2 weeks and she I think looks bigger than when I first got her.
Here is some pictures of her and her name is Zoe she is also 2 months old more or less.
Kitten with uneven length and color coat and some Coon traits. The bottoms/backs of paws and limbs are a dark rich color.
She has a freckle to each side of her nose but not sure if that is a Coon trait or just her own markings. Her whiskers have dark dots where they come out.
Dark eye liner and nose lining and around mouth when she yawns you can see it. She just seems different in many ways and is super affectionate and mellow.
Her name is Phoebe and I have had her since she was 7 weeks old. She is now 12 years old.
Many people that see her tell me she looks part Maine Coon...?? She def does not have the affectionate personality except on her own terms.
I wish she was more friendly and cuddly...I am just curious to know what others though of her. She weighs about 11-12 lbs and her heaviest has been up to 14 lbs.
Even though she is somewhat of a snotty cat I love her lots and would never get rid of her. :)
I recently adopted Taffy from a rescue organization and she looks and acts so much like a Maine Coon.
The rescue staff estimates her age to be about 1 1/2 years, but knows very little about her background, as they got her from a shelter.
She follows me around, runs in front of me (I trip over her every time), and is very friendly. She loves to throw herself on the floor and roll over on her back, begging for tummy rubs.
We introduced her slowly to our two dogs and she was very laid back with them. So, any opinion?
I've had my cat for 13 years. She's a loner cat, she doesn't really like people to mess with her and she doesn't really like new people.
But she's my best friend and my life wouldn't be the same with out her even if she is a pain sometimes (:
I've looked up traits online and he seems to fit the description. I'd just like an opinion on it.
He is very much like a kitten, playful and the tiniest (and cutest) meow. He has pointy ears with long tan hairs growing on the inner ear. Big paws with hair growing between the toes. Three different types and lengths of hair growing.
And he's a BIG boy! (Not fat...) also he has the distinctive "M" on his forehead. Let me know what you think! p.s. I would upload a photo but I'm on mobile and it won't let me :(
A good friend had a cat (prox 3 years old per the vet) she could not take to next residence. We agreed to provide him a loving home.
Having lived on a Pennsylvania farm with lots of dogs and cats, this was no big thing. We are old now but the addition has had a dramatic effect upon our lives. Less squabbling... our time has become filled with Bubba and his antics.
Loves to play, of all the fancy toys, his favorite is a length of string attached to a stick. He never tires of chasing it.
He is very laid back but loves to be chased around the house. Finds different places to hide/pose, especially in high spots.
Very fond of belly rubs and loves to lay on his back with all paws akimbo. Devoted to which of us at home, but partial to Connie and sleeps in her arms with head resting upon hers.
First night we had him, I awoke a around 3 pm with his cold nose pressed upon mine!!!!! He delights in opening drawers and cabinets, stands on hind feet and side steps on back feet with paws clasping the drawer/cabinet.
He is very tolerent of being picked up, but lets you know when he wishes to leave. He has developed a daily routine including being at the door when he senses that one of us is coming home.
Hearing is exceptional and he seems to be more dog than cat like. Has to sniff everything and drinks water from the sink faucet.
Gets mesmerized with the fireplace flames and the bubbles from seltzer bottles. He is the light of our lives. Will attach pictures when bride shows me how.
A Maine Coon leaves a mark on one's heart that is never forgotten. These are some beautiful tributes to amazing family members.
What is it about cats in sinks? Perhaps it's the size, the shape, the way they produce fresh water, or maybe it's just because it is so fun for a cat to be right in the way!
