 Happy Birthday Max !!

Max was a rescue and thought to be about two years old.
My vet said "where did you get him, he's a Maine Coon !"
He has their characteristics  ..
Large bone structure and rectangular body shape, broad chest.
They are known for their intelligence and gentle personality.
Maine Coons are the largest of the domestic breeds.

He's quiet, never, ever meows.
He almost always has this scowl on his face..
I think it's the slant of his eyes.

They are very dog like..he runs to greet me when I come home.
When I sit, he's right there beside me or on my lap.
See what I mean??

He's a dear and my best buddy..very devoted.
He has grown most of his fur back since his recent shaving.

"Yup Mom, I'm handsome again."
This is one of my favorite pictures.
When he was young, 
he would jump from the kitchen counters up to the top 
of the cabinets ..
We had high ceilings then so those cabinets were pretty high!
"Can't get me now."

I sure hope he has lots more birthdays.

Happy Birthday, sweet Max!! Yes, I noticed his fur coming back; he looks like his old self again! I have heard Maine Coons are great cats. Sounds correct!

Lynne said...

Oh my, I hope more birthdays too . . . I had no idea Max was 15 years . . . Handsome indeed . . .

Missy, I too hope Max has many more birthdays. He sure doesn't appear to be that old. We had a tuxedo cat that lived about 18 years, when we were all young at home. Enjoy your best buddy. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

He's a beauty. My Maine Coon was one of my favorite cats I have had in my life. He was black with all the markings. His name was Mr. Midnight. Happy Happy Birthday to Max! xo Diana

HB to Max! I did not realize he is 15. He is a sweetie and oh, so handsome. Reminds me of my Trixie and Rocker.
