Thanks.  The story of how he came into our lives is pretty cool all by itself.  My folks wanted to get us a kitty for our house warming / Christmas gift in our first place together.  She took P to an all cat vet's office / feral cat shelter quite a ways away near Youngstown.  The cats had the run of the place.  While P was sitting down looking at all the kitties, Tobin jumped up in her lap and picked her as his cat mommy.  She put him down and played with other kitties, but he was persistent.  He jumped up repeatedly and kept the other kitties away telling them all that she was his human.  The lady who ran the place was reluctant to let him go because he was one of her favorites.  But she did and the rest is history.  His name was Tobin and we kept it.  

When she brought him home I was kinda disappointed cuz he was a long haired kitty and I really didn't want one.  But he was so cute and friendly and so itty bitty at 6 months.  I had no idea at the time what a Maine Coon was and how big he would get.  He grew and grew for about the first 3 years reaching about 20 lbs of pure muscle and fuzz.  But I wouldn't trade him for the world once we got to know each other.  He was our kid that we never had together and raised him in that way.  Well mannered and loving, but as we came to learn about Coons, not a lap cat.  He would sit with us or by us and that was the way it was.

Too soon to think about another kitty.  So many other things going on to even go there.  But Maine Coons now have a special place in my heart and would like to have another when the time comes.

 
Bump! My response moved this down... great story.

Thanks so much for the thoughts and remembrances of Tobin.  He was indeed a gentle giant and loved everyone he met, except little kids.   He was a good kitty and one of the best I ever had the pleasure of sharing life with.  We took him over to my Mom's this afternoon to his final resting place in one of the gardens at her house.  

Its been a long hard day and has taken its toll on Patty and me.  He was her alarm clock in the morning and also had little problem in telling her that it was time to go to bed.  Its gonna take some time to get over this and move on because he was such an integral part of our lives.  

He was my music buddy, too.  He shared many a morning with me sitting on the arm of the sofa while I played music when it was just me and him with the house to ourselves and the music was both good and sometimes pretty loud during those occasional wake and bake's.  He truly enjoyed a lot of music and made those mornings more enjoyable.

All the best to y'all and I'm glad that some of you got to meet him.  Those were good times.

Thanks for sharing those memories of your pal. Nice to get to know him a little more. {#Good-vibes}

Tobin passed on early this morning at home.  We did our best to keep him comfortable to the end and avoid the trip that no one wants to make.  He was a good kitty who put up a brave fight to the very end.  Rest in peace little buddy.  There will never be another you.  Our heart aches for you.

 
Ah sh*t. He was a cool kitty for sure. *HUGS* to you both.
