My Sweet Maine Coon looking boy
I was very lucky to get this little boy in the picture from a lady out west of Sydney in Australia. At the time the lady did not tell me anything about him or his history. She just wanted to find good homes for her kittens. It wasn't till later on that I relised he was not like your average moggie.
He trills instead of meowing, and the only time he meows at all is in the morning to be let out of our laundry which is the sweetest softest sound even then.
He has lynx tips coming out of his ears, and my visitors are quite taken with him saying he has a wild look about him.
He loves water and will even shower with me and also when I am in the bath he will sit on the bath till I get out, loves playing with the water and bubbles.
He also loves water in our hand basin in bathroom, sink in kitchen anywhere there is water. He is the most loving affection kitten I have ever had too.
I have exhausted all efforts trying to find out how he came about by contacting breeders in the area where I got him, to contact the lady I got him off, but he remains a mystery.
His coat is going through color changes from dark brown and thorn mackerel colors to dark brown and apricot or gingery mackerel markings. He has two coats, one thick under coat and a thinner lot longer top coat. We are in the summer months at present so his photo's are of his shorter version.
If anybody reading this and after looking at the photo's could let me know what they think of his background that would be appreciated.
Thank you Lee-Ann
