“Hairy” My Maine Coon Cat

by Robin
(Henderson, NV)



My Maine Coon's name is Hairy and he is 13 years old. Everyone comments on his eyes looking like people eyes. His coat is incredible soft and he's become very talkative since he reached 11 years old.

He used to never meow unless it was food time. He is well behaved and oddly enough, even people with severe cat allergies are not bothered by him.

by: Robin


This is my cat Hairy and he has been missing from my house since 11/01/2010. I have been searching for him everywhere and came across this listing from a while back. I know its a long shot, but if anyone has any information as to where he is, please contact me at deseojon@yahoo.com He is missing from my Henderson, NV home. There is a reward. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

by: Finn Frode, Denmark

Hi Robin. I think the main reason for old cats to talk more is simply that they've come to know us so well and so they do what they can to communicate better. Our 15yo Milly talks a lot - to us it sounds like barking, but she probably belives it to be human chat. 😉

But I also agree with EveryCat that loss of hearing could be part of it.

Your old Hairy is a fine cat - may he have many more good years in him.

Jan 09, 2010 Hairy!
by: Everycat

Hairy is beautiful, what a wonderful feline companion. I wonder if at 11 years old his hearing started to wain a little. This is an age when hearing can start to fade for cats, sometimes intermittantly. I've experienced this with older cats that I have had. It's been explained to me that as they age, the inner ear goes through a process ofpartial ossification. I've had two very old cats who became much more vocal in their later years.

Here's to a long, happy and chatty life for Hairy!
