Steve Jones from the Slow Travel Message Board emailed me this weekend, after looking at the blog photos of our new cat Buddy, to tell me that he may be a Maine Coone Cat!! One of the traits of this breed is that they are a “companion cat” – they like to be with you, but are not really lap cats.
We did a bunch of Internet searching and got out our book on cat breeds and I think he is right. Buddy is either a Maine Coon Cat or at least part. This is a good healthy breed of cat, like the Tabby Cat.
Buddy sleeping on my desk beside my monitor, this morning. Now he is out in the yard somewhere. He has still not learned how to use the cat flap!
