About Us
Little Bear, the Cat of the Day
Name: Little Bear
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Maine Coon
Home: Waltham, Massachusetts, USA
   My name is Little Bear, but you can call me Your Majesty. My humans also sometimes call me Buster, especially when I get into trouble (that's their opinion only, of course). I live with my human mom and dad, as well as a feline sister named Jasmine, although we had a huge fight a few years ago and can't seem to make up, so we are kept apart. I really like to show off my magnificence when my humans have guests over, and strut around with my tail up in the air and all fluffed out. Everyone says I look like a little lion.

    Little Bear is one of the most affectionate cats I've ever known. He loves to be held (all 16 pounds of him) and kissed, and head-butts us frequently. At night he sleeps in between my husband and me. His breeder said he wouldn't be a lap cat, but we have lots of chuckles at her expense whenever he (very often) sits on our laps. He's an indoor cat, but loves to watch the birds from the windows (although he was terrified when he saw a wild turkey - so much for being a little lion).

    Speaking of wild turkeys, the first time Little Bear saw a wild turkey (a few years back) he was so frightened that he hid under the bed. There's a mirror behind his dishes, and his own reflection spooked him so he wouldn't go near his food or water. I had to carry him around for 10-15 minutes before he was no longer afraid of his reflection! :-) Now he's used to seeing them and isn't frightened by them.

   We absolutely love Little Bear and are so glad that he came to live with us.
