Some I've read can be as big as 29lbs, now that's a CAT with some real claws... Grace is about 3 years old now, 15lbs might be Her limit, I hope, as She is quite hefty, so much so, that She hurts My elbow joint in My right arm from time to time.

Yes and get out of the way if it gets ticked off. LOL

Fortunately Grace doesn't get ticked off, She loves Me too much, when I pick Her up She starts purring...

I can say not all of my 6 dogs go bananas, but nearly 50%. I have terrified dogs scattered around the house on a particularly noisy fireworks session ...

My fireworks were only 2 blocks away so it was real loud.

Someone had some fireworks outside the park and the City of Barstow 12 miles away didn't make a lot of noise, Grace was ok, but then there were no high pitched noise makers like in the past...

My dog was so shell shocked you almost needed a putty knife to get it out of the closet. I think next year I'll take him someplace else for the evening. He is 13 now and his ticker might give out. LOL

If anybody would be so inclined.........
Here is a Maine Coon kitten page......
Kittens available!!!
Meow. Coming soon to a soft lap near YOU.

I want one soooooooooooo badly.
Maybe when my dear Squirrel passes onto the Rainbow Bridge.
Not to rush her, of course. She is still hanging on, nearing 18yo, still full of piss and vinegar as the saying goes.
Loves the heck out of me and I, her. She's losing a bit of weight again.....might need her thyroid meds adjusted. She's just laying here on the couch eyballing me and purring. She's a long haired barnyard cat that managed to get a tad bit of Maine Coon in her somewhere along the lineage.

This would be my Squirrel..........

Squirrel is very pretty, Kitties have always treated Me well, now I know why some kids didn't and cats always did, cats didn't care if there was any red in My hair, some kids evidently did.

I guess it's not much different than one good hunting dog and one runs from the sound of the gun. Gun shy

My dog was basket case for a day after and I mean REALLY.



My cat wasn't there at that time. She was doing her evening walk...

My kitties have never experienced snow.

Your's have?



Yes. Happy wasn't afraid of the snow but you could see at her reaction she thought it to be something weird. It's beautiful to see a black cat in contrast with the white snow!

Grace being a Maine Coon is well adapted for snow, fur on Her pads and thick flowing fur from nose to tip of the tail, yet She has never seem snow and I haven't seen any since 2008-2009...


I would sure miss it!

When it snows it's fun watching our dogs in the virgin snow. They stick their noses down in the snow and walk forwards. It piles up in front of their nose, and, if you call, the head comes up and their face is snow bound.

And I'll bet their enjoying themselves while in the snow.

As a little kid in the middle of heavy snow and everything so quiet that you could hear the snowflakes hit the ground. sounds silly but true.
