Photo by my 11 year old son.
This is my beautiful Maine Coon, Romeo. Thrown out on the streets as a kitten, he walked right through the front door of my house and into my heart. Nine months later, he is a huge, fluffy bundle of love!

Romeo loves:
*sneaking up on the other cats when they are using the potty (quite funny)
*biting my leg if I ignore him (not quite so funny)
*"talking" to anyone who will listen to him
*bringing me misc objects in the middle of the night (plastic mice, milk jug caps, packages of coffee and sponges – not kidding)

    What a character he is Elizabeth. Lovely shot too and cat’s aren’t easy to take.

  • True story! Thanks Peter! He is a pretty easy goin’ cat, even if he does like to break things! He seemed to be quite the vain kitty with all of his posing.

    Your son is really talented, and Romeo was able to choose the family he wanted. Got my fav


  • Thank you so much Heidi! Romeo has since passed on, but he was a bundle of energy and love while he was with us.
