Mace, Dude, Eclipse
I have an 8 year old, brown tabby Main Coon, name Eclipse. This feline is by far, the most affectionate and emotionally demanding.
Eclipse, like all Main Coons, has a lot of hair. Hair that get into places, stays on clothes and pillows. Because I can't help but say yes to her, I allow Eclipse to sleep with me: of course, she chooses my pillows, sleeping on my head most of the time!
Eclipse is the queen, not only because she's the oldest, but because I don't think she would have it any other way. I have two other cats, a younger, short haired male and a pure white female Maine Coon mix, named Mace. Both Eclipse and Mace are lovers and very playful on their own time. Neither of them meow unless it's time for food.
Living with Maine Coons is an honor, a pleasure and I wouldn't trade them for another breed. Even writing this, Eclipse sits on the desk watching every move, while, Mace sits at the door watching birds fly by.
