Okay, now firstly I am ONLY entertaining the idea about maybe, possibly, in the near future...purchasing a Mainecoon. I am a realistic person and I already own 6 cats ! However having said that, I am home all the time, most days, all day, so the time given too my furbabies is never an issue. Now I have only not long ago, purchased 3 kitties, 2 from the SPCA lovely tabbies , 1 stripped , 1 classic, love them too bits. Most recent a RagDoll, which too be honest, has always been a...how do I say...dream cat of mine, personally anyway. I surely feel I now own all the basic colours of the cat world ! only by accident though, they chose me hehe. Only recently , say in the last month or so...I discovered the MaineCoon, this was also the time I discovered the RagDoll, well in depth anyway. As above the RagDoll really did seem too suit my lifestyle e.g...NO outdoors ! Lost my special one a while ago too this nasty road ! and of course I love the look and nature, and they seem content indoors, which is very important too me, whilst I love seeing my cats play in the garden...the price to pay, being the road is not far away....just isn't possible cept onna harness, cept for my 2 older boys, they are seasoned outdoor cats, they can not be made too be inside ( cept on cold winter days n nights ) hehe, and I respect that, 1 is 7 and 1 is 10 and of course my *Special ones* brother has come too adapt too being inside happily, he is only 8 months old. Recently I went too some shows, I wanted too see the MaineCoon up close and also maybe see their behaviour, of course I liked what I saw, although in cages hard too tell on the behaviour part, but looked so handsome. Of course the owners/breeders said all the right things too me about them, but I would like other opinions, hence posting here too all you lovely, helpful, experienced people My questions are this...IS the MaineCoon okay too be inside ALL the time cept onna harness?...ARE they good at settling into a home with a few cats already?...I am neutral on the sex of the cat, does it make any difference, Male or Female ?.....I am NOT interested in breeding, for the record. Only for a pet, a life long one. I love my *moggies* I own 5 already the *dream* cat is my RagDoll, maybe that sounds silly, I dunno hehe. The MaineCoon I find to be a stunning cat, of course I would love too add one too my furbabie family...but NOT if it is going too be unfair to the cats, in my already, unified fur family, or on the MaineCoon, referring to questions above..^^. ANY advice on this is greatly appreciated from anyone ! I am in NO rush right now for purchasing one, because as stated above I am a realist, and I won't be hasty, with something as important such as this. Thankyou for reading my *rambling* !!!
