Big and Beautiful

Opal is nine years old, very healthy and affectionate. She weighs in at 13.4 lbs. Friends think she is fat, but she is just big-boned and fluffy - a perfect specimen of her breed. She chirps and squeaks in response to being addressed verbally, which I have read is common to this breed.
Hi Patrick: Thanks for sharing. Opal is a very impressive cat. I have met the Flicks' Maine Coons, Zak and Quinn, so I know what you mean when you talk of chirps etc. It is typical of this most popular breed...Michael
