    My Affinity With George!

    When I was about 10/11 years old my parents acquired a little ginger Maine Coon kitten. I was instantly in love and named him George. I used to follow him and he used to follow me. He was my younger brother and we did everything together. He had the characteristics of a dog...

    Last August I adopted a 9 month old cat from the local humane society.  Little did I know that he would grow up to be a gorgeous Maine Coon (mix probably).  He has the "typical" brown tabby markings and all of the characteristics of a Maine Coon.  Just...

    My mini coon as a wee Babette.

    Always Hungry....

    Ask a Maine Coon what they want right then, and the answer will probably be food! My cat Sage is 5 and actually won a contest and has a yarn named after her: http://yarnmarket.blogspot.com/2009/12/say-hello-to-sage.html

    I Have A Norweigan Forest Cat

    I hope my story doesn't get kicked out.. but this cat of mine is closely resembling to a Maine Coon.  She is a Floppy Norweigan Forest Cat.  You can pick her up and her legs just dangle, until she is put where you want her to sit. She started mutating when she was about 7...

    My Mum Has One

    I am from Maine and I wanted to find out about the history of Maine Coon's. I found out the exact origin is unknown but the myth is they came from cross breeds of domesticated cats and raccoons or bobcats! :D There are many legends about the origins, but this is the most common...

    A Big Kitten

    We had no idea when we adopted Mr. Fluffernut at 12 weeks old  from the Humane Society that he was a Maine Coon.  We could tell that he had long hair, but that was it.  Now it is hard to imagine him as a small kitten.  He always had big paws so we knew he...

    My Kitty

    We got out cat Beaux about 12 years ago. He is the best companion cat I've ever had. He is extremely shy so when we found out we were pregnant last year my initial fear was how he would react to a new baby. To my delight and surprise he was WONDERFUL. For a cat who's never...

    This is a bit sad but I acquired several years

    back a lovely Maine Coon that some one had just left in this district. He was boisterous but fun, had masses of fur between the paws as well as a big appetite, almost eating me out of home at times! Sadly he developed growths in old age and had to put down a year back but I...

    Maine Coons Are the Golden Retrievers of the Cat Kingdom!

    3 years ago, my husband and I set out to rescue a couple of cats at our local animal shelter. We had never heard of Maine Coons. We just wanted to rescue some kitties, specifically, older ones that perhaps no one else wanted. I had told my husband that we were not getting long...
