Danny - our Maine Coon Cat?
Well we picked him up from one of these cat shops in our neighborhood. Where do we stay, well its a state called NOIDA, in India. We had gone to the pet shop looking for a labrador puppy for our brother and sis in law. The minute we landed there our attention was taken over by this beautiful Golden brown cat who was caged!!!
We had never ever thought of having a pet, leave alone a cat. But looking at Danny, I felt I had to have him. And he was so friendly from the beginning!
Anyway we went back home and I couldn't stop thinking about him. And me and my husband have full time jobs. And I kept thinking, if I didn't get him home, someone else will, and maybe this is destiny, coz when I ultimately called up the shop after a months time, thy told me that the other two cats have gone, except for Danny! I didn't waste one more minute and the very day got him home.
He is an absolute joy, he has turned everyone at home into a cat lover! People can't have enough of him, kids come up to our house specially for a dekko!!!
The pet shop owners cudn't give us his exact breed, but surfing the net I discovered that his characteristics match those of a Maine Coon. He is about 5 kilos and has a golden brown coat. He loves to play and is very affectionate. The more u play with him, the happier he is.
He is about 10 months now and I hope he has a long healthy life ahead of him, I zimply adore my cat.
