Tallulah is a gorgeous Main Coone cat who came in to us at the beginning of the year. She was just under a year old and a skinny and very stressed young lady. Maine Coone’s need special care and like their freedom most of all. We thought she had been cooped up and no matter how carefully we cared for her, she was a bit feisty and it was elastoplasts at the ready! Nothing would do for this Miss but to be able to roam in the great outdoors and it’s been the making of her We have some safe ‘wild wood’ areas where cats can be cats , still come in to the barn at night and be safely away from cars and traffic. This suits Talullah perfectly. She now has her own room and likes to snuggle up secure in the knowledge that she can be off on the hunt whenever she likes.
Talullah has become friendly and affectionate and there are no longer any of the bad tempered swipes we saw when she first came to stay. She is a lovely cat who likes to be picked up and cuddled – not for long though, there is always another field mouse to stalk through the undergrowth. She’s a large cat now she’s mature and with a magnificent coat – a real beauty.
Finding the right lifestyle for each cat is the key to feline happiness. Some of the cats we have here would cringe at the thought of wild wooding – for others, like Tallulah, it’s the only thing that makes life worth living. Every cat is different.
