That's just it, they're all different. I've only had close experience with 4 (counting these 2). Annie (CH Charmalot Andrea of Coontique) would get on your lap, loved to be petted, would purr up a storm and liked to be around people. Did NOT like to be held AT ALL.
Willowplace Melichus her son, was a real cuddle bug although a bit skittish. He loooooved to be picked up and hugged and would just purr and purr, loved to lie on my hubby's chest and knead his throat (drove me nuts
), when you picked him up he would leeeeeean into you and purr, kneading the air the while, gave head bumps and was just an all around great guy. I still miss him
Narsil is really laid back, but will only tolerate being picked up for a short time although I can clip claws no problem. Really laid back though, nothing bothers him particularly. He's a very quiet cat, I don't think I've heard him meow at all, although he will occasionally give the normal Maine Coon "chirrrup" that they have. He's more stand-offish, although he usually at some point in the night will end up sleeping on my pillow right above my head. I need a bigger pillow
Mithril is "my" boy, and will come looking for me and want to get in my lap although he seldom settles down for long. He's just too hyper. He usually sleeps on my feet. Likes to be held upside down like a baby and will purr at that, but as soon as he sees his brother he's got to get down to see what's going on. They're still kittens technically
after all. You can call them and they will both come running. They've about learned the places they're not allowed (top of bookcases, aquarium, sofa-table, dining-table, kitchen counters) although if I do find one "out of place" it's usually Narsil. Mithril tries to be a "good boy." Also interestingly enough Mithril is more of a talker, does meow and constantly chirrups when he's playing with Narsil. Narsil and Mithril are full brothers from the same litter.
Yup. All different
