Catnip, staring contests, wet cat food, playing outside, lounging around.
Being indoors, too much attention, closed doors.
Paper ball. Even though Cutie gets a lot of toys, he still prefers a crumpled up piece of paper. Go figure.
Favorite Nap Spot:
Folding chair, his bed, my bed, inside cardboard boxes.
Canned tuna, soya sauce, dried squid, chicken wings.
If you wink at him, he'll wink at you.
A friend of mine rescued a pregnant alley cat. I was lucky enough to adopt one of her kittens. His original name was "Chubby" which I wanted to change immediately. It was between him and his brother but I chose Cutie because he was the more playful one. He had a sister named Luna, and a brother named Frisky.
I suppose you could consider Cutie to be a bit spoiled because he doesn't like to be bothered. He grew up in a house that had seven people in it so he got picked up every five minutes. Stewart wasn't around yet, so he got all the attention. Now that Stewart has joined the family Cutie gets jealous sometimes if we give Stewart too much attention. There are only two people around now too so that doesn't help. Cutie is an exceptionally intelligent feline and could probably learn to use the toilet if I had only trained him.

THIS DESCRIBES CUTIE'S PERSONALITY PURR-FECTLY:
While Maine Coons are highly people-oriented cats, they are not overly-dependent. They do not constantly pester you for attention, but prefer to "hang out" with their owners, investigating whatever activity you're involved in (FOR EXAMPLE: HE ALWAYS SITS ON THE MONOPOLY BOARD AND MESSES UP THE HOUSES AND HOTELS WHILE WE'RE PLAYING) and "helping" when they can. They are not, as a general rule, known as "lap cats" but as with any personality trait there are a few Maine Coons that prefer laps (HE PREFERS HIS OWN CHAIR). Most Maine Coons will stay close by, probably occupying the chair next to yours instead. Maines will follow you from room to room and wait outside a closed door for you to emerge. A Maine Coon will be your companion, your buddy, your pal, but hardly ever your baby (SO TRUE).
Maine Coons are relaxed and easy-going in just about everything they do. The males tend to be the clowns while the females retain more dignity, but both remain playful throughout their lives (HE'S ALMOST TEN YEARS OLD AND HE'S STILL EXTREMELY ACTIVE). They generally get along well with kids and dogs, as well as other cats. They are not as vertically-oriented as some other breeds, prefering to chase objects on the ground and grasping them in their large paws -- no doubt instincts developed as professional mousers (HE'S CAUGHT QUITE A FEW THINGS IN HIS LIFETIME). Many Maine Coons will play "fetch" with their owners.
