TJ might be a litte chubbier than Leo was, but it is hard to tell from the pics. He is a big handsome fellow, though.
Hmmmmm, we don't get mny Maine Coons here in the UK, I saw one once, beautiful animal he was. TJ has probably grown about 6-8" in the 4 months we have had him, he demolishes a 400g's of food a day, loves blackcurrant jam on bread (the tiniest piece obviously) and is waaaaaay too vocal, he sat at the patio doors and growled at a fox one night that had strayed into our backgarden..............scared the living daylights outta me !!!!
He tends to keep himself to himself and is not really that sociable with the other two (only if there is food in the offering) Have to say though he is marvellous with the childeren, Zane (2yrs) pokes him and chases him and does all those things little boys of that age do to animals and TJ just sits there. He sleeps at the foot of our daughters bed and if you go into her room to wake her he growls at you !!!!!
