Quick Bio:

Silver Tabby

Attention, petting, playtime, Miro and Puck, foster kittens, Clicker training, crunchy or freeze dried treats

Going to the vet, the vacuum cleaner, hurricanes.

Favorite Toy:
His "Da Bird" feather toy, and Puck.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Wherever Miro is in the afternoon, and sleeping next to mom at night. He seems to sleep far less than most cats, and spends most of the day following me from room to room.

Favorite Food:
Innova Evo, Organix, Merrick, Liv-a-littles snacks, and pumpkin

He's clicker trained; he does a "high five", comes when called, sits up, jumps, etc. He thinks it's all a wonderful game!


Arrival Story:
I went to a cat show to adopt a retired Turkish Angora, but the Turk was far too large to be accepted by my elderly cat Miro, who is easily intimidated. As I was leaving, little kitten Oberon reached out of his cage for me for the fifth time that day. I just had a feeling in my gut that he was "the one". The sign on his cage said "kittens for sale", but didn't mention the breed. He is a "pet quality" Maine Coon (but perfect to me!), and it turned out that my instinct was right; he has been the PERFECT companion for my then grieving Miro ( who had lost his buddy of 15 years, Peewee, just weeks earlier, and had been howling sadly for him until Oberon arrived). They simply adore one another. I've never known such a gentle and patient kitty; qualities that I've since learned are typical for the breed. I never would have considered buying a purebred cat in the past-especially since I do pet rescue-but Oberon was the right kitty at the right time.

Oberon was selected as "playmate of the month" at Pookie's Bow Wow Bakery (www.pookiesbowwowbakery.com) which sells wonderful holistic pet foods and treats. He is also featured on a trading card in packages of Blue cat food. Oberon came from Hearts Haven Maine Coons. You can see more of his family at www.heartshaven.net. If you are unfamiliar with just how HUGE Maine Coons are, then take a look at Oberon's grandparents here: http://www.mainlysilver.com/FUN%20 GALLERY/index.html . There are more pictures of Oberon on Puck, Miro, Nimue, and Calliope's pages. He hopes to join Catster plus someday, when his mom's business picks up a bit. Photos of Oberon, Puck, and Miro will change from time to time, so be sure to corral them and visit again! :-)
