Love My All White Maine Coon

Love My All White Maine Coon

by Lisa and Greg
(Oakwood, GA)

We adopted our Maine Coon from a sad situation. An older lady had acquired cats and could no longer keep them. We really didn’t want a Maine Coon…in fact, had never read much about them.

However, this ball of long-haired white fur won our hearts immediately. The first word that popped into our heads as soon as we saw her was “Precious“.

Thus and forever more will she be named Precious! She lives up to her name 110%. When we don’t feel well, she comes to cuddle and purr. She loves to be held and lets us know, quite loudly, when it’s time to be in our arms.

She loves to run. When we’re downstairs, we can hear her chasing her toys and making quite a racket throughout the main floor.

When she wants her special food, we know that too. She has a meow for every need in her life and her life has become ours. I definitely recommend a Maine Coon to anyone who just loves a cat.

Update 2nd February 2010: More on Precious….

Precious was approximately 2 years old when we adopted her. We watched her learn to do things as she grew older. One was meow. For over a year, all she would do was open her mouth but no sound came out.

Then, she began to “FIND HER VOICE.” Also, she didn’t seem to groom as much as Callie (our cat that had just passed at the age of 17.) Now, she grooms all the time but it was a slow thing for her to get used to.

Her sounds are different. There is the soft, almost soundless meow with a roll on the floor for Greg to come and rub her. He has to sit on the floor with her. She walks around and around and then climbs on his leg to kiss his face or nose. Then she will do it all over again for more rubs and kisses.

Another meow is quick, insistent and loud. That’s when she has just brought her favorite small, rubber soccer ball upstairs to us. She’s telling us to throw it and she WILL bring it back. This goes on several times.

The meow for food is soft, also, but goes along with a statuesque look (Egyptian like) as she sits on the floor where we put her bowl with the wet food. She doesn’t budge until it comes.

I promise pictures of Precious later. They are definitely worth waiting for….I promise.

I’d love to see more pictures of your Precious Maine Coon.

I enjoyed reading about how she communicates with you. And congratulations on being a human that recognizes her different vocalizations and what they mean. Not every human has that insight into cats.

Hi Lisa and Greg. She is gorgeus. Also thanks a lot for describing her differents ways of talking in different situations. Yes, cat language definitely is more than just a meow. 🙂

Hi Lisa and Greg. You don’t say how old your Precious is, but I assume she was an adult cat at the time of adoption. Kittens are fun, but grown cats don’t have to be boring at all – my fat ten year old gets so silly when she’s playing. Also a grown cat will have learned to communicate with humans just like Precious does. With what you tell, she wears that name rightfully. 🙂
