Hi! My name is Maureen, and I'm mom to Bob, a grey Maine Coon cross who came into my life last Easter Sunday. He was running around with a feral colony, but seemed to be more of a stray. Someone my father works with trapped him, got him neutered and my father asked me to take him. I'm also aunt to Delilah (grey tabby) and her son Pierre (brown Maine Coon cross), my brother & his wife's cats who have been living with me for a while. Delilah was a barn cat that my sister-in-law rescued along with her litter of kittens (they were living under a porch on a busy street and the kittens were starting to follow mom into the street.) She found homes for the other kittens but couldn't bear to give up Pierre and knew that Delilah would be hard to place. I have them because they moved into a situation where they couldn't keep the cats. Anyway, it looks like Delilah and Pierre will go home soon and it will be just me and Bob. As I've been around dogs most of my life I'll probably be pestering you with questions about behavior, training and ferals. I'll post pictures of the gang when I get a chance.
