My mother was looking for a cat, and found a cute little orange and white kitten that she fell in love with at first sight. At the time my mother had a 2 year old rat terrier named Benji at home. When my mother brought the kitten home, he stood his ground firmly with Benji and quickly asserted himself as the "king of the jungle" around the house, appropriatley naming him "TOUGHY".
He has been a wonderful part of the household now for 7 years now. He is very intelligent and VERY vocal about his needs and wants. I was watching a show named 'cat 101' and came to the realization that Toughy looked exactly like a Maine Coon, complete the the "M" above his brow. This is Toughy.
