    My new quilt inspectors

    They seem to like close up work... Inoki and Mele (in keeping with our Hawaiian name tradition) are 12 week old maine coon kittens and into everything. I've had to hide all my thread spools

    I'm unfortunately allergic to cats, but Maine Coons have a special place in my heart. Your two babies are adorable! They are sure to lend a hand in the creative process too!

    Coon cats need to be entertained and you better be prepared for them to get into much more than your spools. Good Luck and enjoy them.

    they are cute. I had a Maine Coon named Xanadu. he was a blast! IN THE SUMMER WE GOT HIM GROOMED INTO A LION CUT. At first he was embarrassed, but he grew to like it as he wasn't so hot. have fun with them.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Special place in my heart for the MC. My avatar is one. Unfortunately my breeder was too new to breeding (he was the third litter she produced) and didn't do her homework on her lines. I made the mistake of going to a breeder who didn't do all the testing she should have on her breeding lines. He died very young of HCM. I posted a pic of him in all his full grown glory here:

    I will definitely get another one day but right now I have a home full of feline senior citizens and I won't subject them to a mischievous MC kitten.

    I love Maine Coons! They have the best cat personalities. Yours are beautiful. Missing mine, Bootsie... RIP sweet boy.

    Darling babies! Yes, hide the thread..it can do a number on them if they chew it. Our cat brought me my pincushion one day. She wasn't hurt, thank goodness, but is now not allowed in the sewing room without "Mom." Enjoy those sweet babies.
