Arrival Story: I never leave trash outside my trash can. But this one time I did. I go outside to throw something away and I see one of my dogs dog food cans that I had thrown away sitting by the tree. I'm like how did that happen. I see that the trash bag that I left out was opened and there were little teeth marks on it. I knew it had to be a cat because a dog would have torn the who bag apart. That same day I look outside my window and I see a cat sitting on my front porch. I knew that must have been the cat that went through my trash. I started feeding him. He would come every night to eat. Pretty soon he was coming in the middle of the day. I spoke with the people from the cat rescue group that adopted Ari out. They said we need to trap him because it has been so cold (below 20 degrees in the evenings). I set the trap out on my front pourch with some tuna fish. He came around, sniffed the cage and did not fall for it. I though Oh, No!! But around 9pm I heard some meowing and I looked outside. He was trapped. I put him in one of my bathrooms. The next morning I took him to the vets to get neutered, but he was already neutered. That was great because it saves us all some money. So then I took him to an only cat hospital and they tested him and gave him his rabies shot. They were nice enough to brush out his mats. He was good to go. So, he will be staying with me for a while.
Bio: Good news is that he is very domesticated. He is very sweet and very nonaggressive towards humans and towards other cats. He loves to be brushed. If you want a sweet and loving kitty this is your man.
The Maine Coon is one of the largest breeds of domestic cat, known for its intelligence and playfulness as well as its distinctive physical appearance. The breed is one of the oldest natural breeds in North America and originated from New England, making it America's first indigenous show cat. Maine Coons are a breed distinguished by intelligence, dexterity, and playfulness. They have a tendency to use their front paws extensively (often curling the paw round to pick objects up) and as a consequence will easily learn to open cabinet doors, turn on water faucets, or pick up small objects. Some Maine Coons will eat from their paws, rather than eating from the bowl itself. Due to their above-average intelligence, Maine Coons are known to be one of the easiest cat breeds to train. Maine Coons can be very dog-like in their behavior. Playing fetch is a favorite game.
