              We have a rescued Maine Coon that we adopted from the local animal shelter in August 2018. She's a big, fluffy love bug who loves cuddles, chicken flavored treats, and serenading us at 2 a.m. We would not change it for the world.

Completely unlike any other cat breeds I have known, mega bright and affectionate, with incredibly big personalities and quirky habits. We now have two as well as a rescue moggy and whilst we will always have rescue cats, I can’t imagine life without a MC too.
