We are happy to share stories about our Maine Coons. Some are stories
about how the cat came into rescue, and others are directly from the adopters.
We hope that you enjoy them!
Bunky's new story:
A year ago, I picked up this little (big) guy from Vicky Wells and OMC
, hoping that I could rescue him and make a difference. We got off to
a rough start, with him spending the first few weeks under my bed crying
(which made me want to cry ).
Here we are a year later and I'm pretty sure he thinks this is his apartment
and I'm just a roommate. He wakes me up as soon as I hit snooze on my
alarm so I'm not late , sits on my stomach to help me build up my ab muscles
(all 16 lbs), constantly talks, demands head rubs, and knows just when
I need to cuddle.
I can't imagine life without this big personality wrapped in fur. Rescuing
has never been so sweet heart emoticon
Romeo's new story:
Romeo is doing well! I must say he is the most loving cat I have ever
had!! He loves to be held and he buries his little head into my chest
or neck...I just love him!!! He is still a little skittish with strange
noises. However, he sticks around to see what it is all about rather than
just running to his safe place, which was under my bed. LOL
So far he is not much of a jumper, the only thing he will jump on are
the beds. But from there he's just recently discovered the windows and
that Momma feeds the birds & squirrels in the late afternoon so there
is quite a show to watch ;)) I try sitting him in the windows downstairs
but he's not quite comfortable with that yet so upstairs on the beds he'll
He is still my little work in progress but he is definitely determined to
overcome his fears because he comes right back to the spot he ran from...He
is also doing well with the dogs. He is better around the 2 Sr. dogs and
my female just adores him!! My youngest dog is just a bowl full of energy
but Romeo has no problem letting him know to back off...I am quite happy
with how comfortable he has gotten thus far and every day I see him progress.
Weather its exploring something new or the amount of time he spends doing
it. I am so grateful he came into our lives. I just love him to pieces
and the best part is I know he loves me too! I have to add that sometimes
when we are sitting and he is being loved, I think of all the poor animals
that go through that ACC that never stand a chance...
Romeo has so much love to share and is so docile...he loves to be on
his back and get his belly and chest rubbed which is a super treat for
me as well because my Ms. Chloe would never let me lol...Thank you all
for rescuing him!! He and I would have missed out on each other otherwise!!
