Most definitely. Don't need anymore strays out there. There are already enough that still need to be adopted.

Thanks, guys! I'll pass on the compliments! Yeah, cats have a special flair for looking regal, it's probably part of their DNA.

I blame the (ancient) Egyptians! -they're the ones that taught cats most of their bad habits.

Re: Feline Follies

I finally got a cat, after about 4 years without one. I found this adorable Maine Coon/Tabby mix at a local pet rescue place. I brought him home Wednesday night and we had our first vet visit this afternoon. His name is Junior (he came pre-named; not sure if we'll keep it) and he's 10 months old, and already weighs 10 lbs. He's very long with big feet and a huge tail. He's just a big fluff ball and is a very mellow guy. He's still a bit freaked out being in a new place and keeps crawling under things (like right now; he's under my desk). But even not-big-animal-fan-hubby is already petting him and holding him in his lap. Junior is a surprisingly mellow guy. I can pick him up, sling him over my shoulder, put in his crate, and he doesn't even resist.

That'll change! as soon as he feels a bit more at home.

Re: Feline Follies

He IS a pretty boy, that's for sure. He also, however, is a chatter-box and will, after hours of silence, meow up a storm--as we discovered late last night. His meow, however is more like a squeak, like someone is stepping on a dog toy.

He's not terribly digging the stairs, though; it scares him for some reason. I have to carry him up and down at night. I might start putting treats on the stairs to see if he'll follow me.

Re: Feline Follies

About the stairs issue--I would definitely suggest the positive reinforcement route rather than always carrying him.

I had a Maine Coon a few years ago.His name was Bandit.He reminds me of him.

Anyways,Congratulations!

Maybe he fell down some stairs. Cats remember stuff like that, but you can help him overcome his fear.

Re: Feline Follies

I'm genuinely curious what in the evolution of cats led to their predilection for getting into things like boxes to sleep.
