  1. Janet Slayden says:

    Ollie is a precious baby! My dear friend had a Main Coon that grew to 30 pounds! He was a big ol’ bundle of furry love. Enjoy your new arrival, I know Oscar will enjoy having a new buddy. ????

  2. Lora King says:

    I love your Blog and I’m sure Oscar and Ollie will become great friends! Can’t wait to see more pics!

  3. Ima Blank says:

    OH!!! SO CUTE!!! Love your blog too, but today its about the kitten. Sorry . . .

  4. BlueOcean Quilts says:

    I come for the outfits and stay for Oscar and Ollie! Congratulations on your new addition.

  5. Amy Johnson says:

    Oh my gosh, she is so precious! I am looking so forward to seeing more of her! Lucky you!

  6. donnanance says:

    How adorable! Oscar and Ollie will become fast friends. We always had cats and dogs together. I read a series of cozy mysteries by Miranda James and in one of the series one of the main characters is a large Maine Coon called Diesel because of his distinctive purr. xoxo

  7. Sue Smith says:

    awwwwww. Ollie’s adorable. Oscar looks like the older sibling ready to help out–he’ll be great, I have no doubt. Fun that they’ll be playmates. We always had a cat and a dog, and they were good buds as well. My sister has the sweetest Corgie, named “Tucker,” and she has a cat, (“Maverick”). The Corgie is so friendly, and just loves the cat, but Maverick wants nothing to do with Tucker. Cracks me up.

      ollie is just the best natured cat i have ever met, sue! tucker and maverick sound like a hoot! one thing’s for certain, pets keep you on your toes.

  8. Stephanie Pyles says:

    Ollie is gorgeous! I’m sure Oscar will be a great big brother!

  9. gunnymom says:

    Qllie is a cutie. Maine cooms have real personality.

  10. Rebecca Saffer says:

    What an adorable kitty. It looks like Oscar is smitten already. I have always loved animals and grew up with a series of wonderful, loving “mutts”. For the past 15 years, I have been the proud parent to rescue cats (first Percy and after his passing to Toby). Now I am a total “cat lady”!! Can’t wait to hear how the bonding goes between Oscar and Ollie. Oscar looks totally into the big brother mode.

    • beth djalali says:

      i’m so happy to hear you have a wonderful companion in that apartment of yours! and i’m certain ollie will be bossing oscar around in no time. isn’t that the way it should be?

  11. Judi Hume says:

    Congratulations! That’s one adorable kitten. I predict they’re going to be great friends, and I look forward to seeing lots of pics! 🙂

  12. Diane Cannon says:

    So adorable!!!!

  13. Linda De says:

    Awe! She is so adorable! They will both do fantastic if they start sharing right off the bat, probaby. I raised a german shepard and a cat…the dog would go out and get the cat by the back of her neck when I called and called for her..and they would sleep together…the cat on top of the dog…it was amazing and blessed to have them in my life as a single girl. They were little angels. Enjoy your sweet blessed angels, Beth <3

  14. DriftwoodLover says:

    Just beautiful! Hmm …. Fridays with Ollie does have a nice ring to it too.

  15. So beautiful, love him. Yes, Fridays with Ollie. 🙂

    • beth djalali says:

      isn’t ollie gorgeous?! it’ll have to be oscar (and ollie) from time to time. but i don’t think oscar will mind sharing the limelight one bit.

  16. anonylind says:

    She is a beauty, and Maine Coons are very smart! I hope they become the best of friends. We just have plain old domestic short hair boys, but we love them all just the same. Enjoy that unconditional love!

  17. karen kappmeyer says:

    Good luck with Ollie!! I am sure Oscar will learn to love him, as a cat owner I/m thrilled to be watching him grow. What fun a cat and a dog!! Blessing to you all

  18. Kimberly Cottrell Luper says:

    2 months after my hubby passed in 2013 I came across a beautiful faced but scraggy looking abandoned and pregnant female stray. I thought she was a gay tabby and took her in so she wouldn’t have to be out in the cold for the winter. One evening I was looking at her and realized she had the tufts on her ears. Was a surprise to realize she is, at least in part, Maine Coon. “Sabrina” filled out with good food and love and has become a beautiful cat. She certainly came into my life at the right time. Thank you for posting a picture that shows me what she probably looked like as a kitten.

    • Kimberly Cottrell Luper says:

      Oh and Sabrina has lots of other kitty and doggie friends in the neighborhood.

    • beth djalali says:

      what a lovely story, kimberly! thanks so much for sharing. and i’m so happy you opened your home and heart. what a wonderful companion you have.

  19. Imastounded says:

    Adorable. Congratulations on the new addition to your family!

  20. Alison Gunn says:

    We had a Maine Coon for 16 years. They require a special kind of kibble when they’re older; they eat more often than any other cat, which is 11 times a day. They don’t do well with regular cat food. Also, of course, they need to be brushed almost every day, otherwise they develop terrible knots (which they can’t clean all by themselves). I loved my Maine Coon, she was wonderful, but they are a lot of work. Best wishes, your little one is the most adorable little girl I’ve seen in a long time. 🙂

  21. Deborah Reading says:

    Miss mine very much. Harley was one crazy kitty

  22. Kimberly Bachmann says:

    Congratulations on your new one. I love mine. He is 8 months now. It’s true what they say… traits. Mine started retrieving at 12 weeks. Loves water… careful about ear infections. The best part….the trill he makes. Enjoy!

  23. Lesley Randles says:

    Oh! Now I have serious pet envy! We live on a bird friendly estate that doesn’t allow cats. If I were ever to break the law it would be to own a Maine Coon. Love them and Love your blog. Like you, I’m 59 years old and I have 3 grown up sons. We live in Hillcrest, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.
