This is a neat story.
I had a Maine coon who, if I left the shower door cracked, would come on in. Water splashing down on him and he loved it. I adored that cat. Maine coons are known for congenital heart defects and he got sick, very suddenly and was dead in a week. We took him to a university specialist but he couldn't be saved. Interestingly, his defect was unknown and he's now immortalized in vet medical journals. The vet asked from photos of him and those are included. Still miss that guy.
Don't mean to hijack your thread but he was a water cat. Our present Maine coon, also a rescue, would have a fit if he got wet.
Hey, LN, post your pictures.
Anybody who has picture of water cats, post them!
Thought you'd never ask.
First one, on the end of the couch, always slept on his back,
hard to see because he has no front leg on this side. Our vet called and asked if we'd be interested in a special needs cat. He was dumped by the breeder because he had injured his front paw when he climbed up the bars of his cage. We had to have the leg amputated but he never missed it. The children of the vets and other vet employees had named him Skip so that's what it stayed.
^^ With his adoptive sister who was thrown from a car, meant to go over a bridge but his the concrete instead. She was a mess, face severely lacerated, full of fleas, malnourished. She's gorgeous, sleek and very well fed but still very spooky.
This photo was an accident. We were photographing antiques to sell and the two cats parked themselves on our set.
Finally, the Maine coon we have now, also a rescue. Named The Great Catsby, he's pure brat. I love that huge green bowl. That's why its moved over because Catsby would stretch and push it off.
Got the vid posted above now
