Wordless Wednesday – Those Eyes

Fun Facts About Maine Coons

Previously I shared about how these cats got the “Maine” in their name.
This week I want to start sharing how they the “Coon” came about!

According to one tale, an English seafarer named Captain Charles Coon
Kept long-haired cats aboard his ship.
Whenever Coon’s ship would anchor in New England ports,
The cats would leave the ship and mate with the local feral cat population.

In time, long-haired kittens began appearing in the local litters.
These kittens were referred to as “Coon’s cats”!

Sound plausible?
For more stories, tune in to next week’s Wordless Wednesday!

    Makes me wonder about the history of cats at sea. Were they often kept as pets on ships…or almost never? Does this mean there might be entire lines of kitty immigrants out there? And if so…would they most likely be mixed from many different backgrounds or stay with kitties from the same old country? (I may be a little punchy from lack of sleep – but I’m suddenly picturing little Italy of cats) 😉

    I’m almost as excited to have our internet connection back! *LOL* Last Saturday, lightning hit some kind of tower about a mile away and knocked out our power for most of the day, but our internet didn’t come back until yesterday…maybe the day before.

      I rushed upstairs and then back down to get the camera to take this one –
      and then contorted myself into all sorts of strange positions to get the trees in the backdrop! 🙂
