Everywhere we are, Whitney is to!
Who says a man's best friend is his dog? In our world it is our cat "Whitney" who is a Maine Coon. After our Himalayan "Mocha" passed away (18 years old) we missed the presence of an animal in the home.
We rescued Whitney from an animal shelter, at the age of 2, and at that time they had named her Laura, which seemed so inappropriate to us. We renamed her Whitney because she is so vocal.
Whitney is always by our side, follows us outside on the balcony and comes in with us, tells us when it is bedtime and tells us when she would like us to watch TV on the couch.
Wherever we are Whitney is there. The Maine Coon breed seems to be such a loyal breed. Could not have made a better choice when we adopted Whitney.
