maine coons are amazing, aren't they? the myth is that a few cats as owned by a doomed queen were sent ahead of her in a ship to america, while she was caught trying to leave and was executed. the cats were set loose in new england, where they mated with raccoons to produce america's first half-wild domesticated cat. you could almost believe it with those bobcat-lookin' faces!
What a lovely picture, I love the fur on this kind of cat, these fellas are adorable. I love how he's licking his lips as though he's eyeing a particularly tasty looking mouse that happened to pass through.
