I am really happy for you both.

As a side note, it's been 6 months since I changed my cats' diet to be only raw frozen food.

They are doing fantastically great!

You may want to investigate that option too.

Post Well "Ruff" has turned out to be ... {Rascal} the Red Maine Coon kitten

Guys,

Meet "Rascal"



There is a really Super Cool Story to how "Ruff" has turned out to be "Rascal".

It goes like the following ..................

I was thinking about different things regarding when "Ruff" would be born next month this past Sunday.
So Cathy and I were discussing the situation and I said you know what I think I'll just call Mickey and get the "Facts".
Yes, it was Sunday but after multiple E-Mails between Mickey and myself I sort of knew her personality.
So, I make the call and she answered the phone and I told her who was on this end of the line.
She has this really cool way about her when you talk with her.
It's like she is so doggone personable even in her voice over the phone the same way she comes across in E-Mails.

Moving right along ...........

She says something like Terry I have this really Special Big Red Boy Maine Coon Kitten that is not on the Cattery Site for Sale and I have thought about you.
I can't make up my mind though as he is so sweet and loving I have picked him out to keep for myself.
Then she preceded to direct Cathy & I where to go on her site to see him with her holding him.
Sure enough he instantly does get your attention when we saw his picture.
Mickey says I know you said you wanted a kitten from Riggs that is a Dark Brown color but I still thought of you as Big Red Boy is so much of a "Rascal" with his mom.
He is so LOUD calling her when she walks away that he just keeps it up until she comes back to him.
He has her wrapped around his paws ............

The bottom-line is once we saw him we both instantly knew we wanted him if Mickey would let us Adopt him.
She said she would continue to think about it and keep us in mind.
Well, I just knew from everything she said regarding "Rascal" he was exactly what I wanted.
So I did in a very casual way keep subtly commenting to Mickey that I wanted "Rascal" her Big Red Boy.

Now comes the really Good-Stuff and I'll just Copy & Paste her E-Mail to me from Monday (Yesterday) I don't think she will mind.
Quote:
Your killing me.. But the Red boy I call Rascal is your's if you and Cathy would like to have him I know he would have the best home EVER!
Yes, I instantly E-Mailed her back and thanked her over & over for her decision on letting us Adopt "Rascal" her Big Red Boy born on July 10th 2016.
I also made the decision to keep the name she has been using, "Rascal" for him as I think IMHO that shows the proper "Tribute" and how "Appreciative" I am to Mickey.
I really doubt there are many breeders that pick out a certain kitten for themselves and then let it go to a client for Adoption.

Now you know the, Rest-of-the-Story on why there is no "Ruff" and there is a confirmed "Rascal".





Enjoy the pictures everyone of me below,



This is my Dad,





This is my Mom,




This is me and I'm not really sure how old I am in this picture,
(This is the picture my New "Mom & Dad" saw that I'll be going home with)





And this is me "Rascal" below at 4-weeks and I am really busy growing





















I'm really anxious to grow up so I can meet my new Mom & Dad,





.

That's awesome! He's already almost as big as my little cat at only 6.5 pounds. I'm sure Rascal will love every minute spent with you & Cathy.

He will be growing really fast for the 1st I think 8 months or so.

I think he will keep growing until the ages of 4 to 5 years old to reach full maturity.

He might be like between 25 to 30 Lbs at full maturity.

He's gonna love his new Dad and his new home.

I am glad that things are working out so well for you and Cathy. Your threads are always enjoyable to follow and I am sure Rascal's thread will be entertaining.

PS What's up with your Mustang?

Judging from the size of his mom and dad, I'm not so sure Rascal would fit inside!
