Arrival Story: My husband wanted a Maine Coon cat really, really badly. His favorite childhood pet (Boots) was a Maine Coon mix. so when his co-worker offered him a free Maine Coon kitten he jumped on it. We were told he was 8 weeks old which I thought was pretty young for a kitten to be taken away from his mother, but she was going to take him to the pound otherwise. As it turns out he was only 5 weeks old when we got him and if there's any Maine Coon in him at all it's very minimal. Buut my husband adores him so I guess we'll keep him. LOL!
Bio: Merlotte was named in honor of Sam Merlotte of True Blood. His full name Merlotte le Chat is because originally we decided he would just be le Chat (The Cat). But we really liked the name Merlotte for him.
Merlotte is our dominant male. He's still very kittenish, but he's turning out to be quite the control freak. He get's very jealous over other animals interactions with Josh (my husband) and lets the hubs know when he's done something wrong. Merlotte has very little to do with me unless there's an opportunity for food or Josh is no where to be found. Sometimes he just sits by the door and cries for Josh to return. You could say he's a Daddy's boy. He's very playful, but over does it and ends up beig a little too aggressive for our other cats. All in all he's a good boy. Very intelligent and very clean. Couldn't ask for more.
