8. Was just going to say the same....

I had a friend with one who loved to snuggle up under the covers and sleep next to me. Big floppy sweethearts. Fantastic cats.

14. Endlessly affectionate

and cuddly.

Equally endlessly shedding fur ball machines, of course.

22. Naively took in a stray kitten, turned into 20+ lb Tom with lion's mane. My best friend.

4. I've heard that they have tiny, squeaky voices

that don't match their large size at all. They look like baritones but they're sopranos.

7. That's their "indoor voice." They can get loud as hell when you're

using that can opener and it's not fast enough to suit them.

However, it's hilarious to hear a 20+ pound tomcat squeak because he wants a lap and some scritches.

They'd make trails through deep snow back in New England. All you could see is the tip of the tail floof above the snow.

26. I had one too

He had the meow of a kitten and the heart of a lion.

He was an outdoor cat that loved water. He was one of my favorite cats of all time but not everyone liked him as he could be quite the pest that killed anything that got in his way!

His name was Mr. Holmes as in Sherlock. I still miss him & wish he was around today to deal with the moles that have taken over my back yard.

9. We had a cat that was part Maine Coon. Such a lovely cat.

He's been dead for years and I still miss him.

I think he is actually a Norwegian Forest Cat, but the breed is very similar to and may be the ancestors of Maine Coons because they traveled with the Vikings and some might have wound up in the new world hundreds of years ago.

12. We had a Maine Coon for 17 uears and he was the sweetest cat in the world We were so

devastated when he died it took us many years to get another cat but this time we got a Norwegian Forest cat just like the one above and it turns out he is just as wonderful and just as loving and has that same incredible temperament that these huge cats seem to possess. We love them so much.

I keep hoping she'll get inspired. But I guess I just have to accept the fact I have a cat (who I love dearly) that just has no ambition but to sleep and eat.

21. Sounds like my cat.

She is beautiful, black shiny and loveable. That Maine Coon is one handsome guy. They are all special in their own way.

25. My sister has a Norwegian Forest

She was born a barn cat but looks like one of the stock photos on Wiki for Norwegian Forest. Sweet cat, but a very faint meow.

THe last kitty that owned me was a loudmouth. I forever regret not recording that long, loud meow (would have made a great ringtone).

24. My Maine Coon, Archie, died in February.

He was such an oddball and one of the things he did every winter is sleep outside and allow himself to be covered with a layer of snow. I loved that big guy.

27. I'd love to have a Maine Coon cat

But I live in Florida. Just doesn't seem fair to do that to such a beautiful animal.
