Tsunami - Watch Cat

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Quote Of The Day
If you would know what a cat is thinking about,
You must hold its paw in your hand for a long time.

Fun Facts About Maine Coons

Maine Coons are highly intelligent cats who frequently
Assume the role of guardian and watch cat within their families.

Over the years, each of my Maine Coons has “protected” me
While I slept, then looked to me to return the favor!

Legend even trills and reaches his paw out for me during his catnaps
To make sure I have not abandoned my station!

When I am home alone, my cats frequently position themselves
In places where they can keep an eye on all of the hallways and entryways.
Sometimes they lie side by side, each facing a different direction!
Tsunami frequently lies in front of the entryway door,
Just like a guard cat!

Both cats know and expect us to abide by regular schedules.
In today’s photo, Tsunami has been patiently waiting for –
And is now overseeing his dad’s arrival home!

Want to learn more about the fascinating Maine Coon breed?
Stay tuned for more Fun Facts in upcoming Wordless Wednesday posts!

    You are lucky to have such a vigilant companion!

  4. I could have used a guard kitty this week…see my WW post!!

  5. I just can’t handle a cat as a “watch cat” They tend to see things we don’t and imagine creatures are chasing them!

    Cool facts. Sounds like you have a couple great guard kitties! My Cougar has a fixed butt groove in my sofa from where she sits waiting for me and my hubby to come home.

      It’s funny, Crys – my cats will hang out with me at various places throughout the day,
      And there are times they will hang out in the windows for their own pleasure –
      But, they definitely have a built in alarm that tells them when a human is expected to arrive home
      And they will stop whatever they are going to do to watch for their arrival!

  14. Karly says:

    Aww, that is so cute! Mittens will do the same thing with me and I love it!

      Yes, it’s really cool to see your pet guardians greet you at the windows!
      I had one that we could actually hear yowling down the hallway of a previous apt we lived in as we approached!
      I wonder what the neighbors thought…

      Yes, we get in “trouble” when we are out too late (by the cats standards!)

      How many of you have ever gotten a “scolding” from your pet?

  22. I love the Main Coon bread as well. They are very awesome cats and sometimes I think they are more like a dog and will go to great lengths to protect you and your family. I remember my main coons would follow me around the house and loved getting attention. I miss them.
