New family member alert!
We are in the process of adopting a 1yr old Maine Coon cat.He is already 16#!Ive been wanting one of these fellas for a long while now and although I haven't been actively looking for one ,one found us last Saturday at a local petsmart!There was a rescue organization there when we decided to just drop by and see what hey had in the way of fish and frogs when low and behold we saw them.The poor thing was sick and he had pooped himself and gotten sick in his cage on the way there.I still asked to hold him and even though he was sickly he was still so friendly.We get him Wednesday,Ill post pics then.

Smaug, I hope he isn't just old and ill and causes you a lot of vet bills. Hopefully he'll get better and get to enjoy more of his life. Good luck.

Smaug thats very nice of you to adopt an old sick cat, its unfortunate that he didn't always have someone as kind and caring as you to take care of him. Like Hobbs said, I hope it doesn't cause you too much in vet bills and that you get plenty of time to spend together.
Mvjnz, I agree with you for the most part. I think it would've been an ideal situation for the rescue organization to have one of their volunteers or foster "parents" take care of the animal....rather than to make money off of someones good heart.*Keep Smiling, It Makes People Wonder What Your Up To*

I hope the cat was just car-sick/stressed!

Smaug, see what happens when you go to the pet store, lol.
It sounds like he was stressed not sick.
MC's are such cool cats. Congratulations. Can't wait to see the pics.
