Since his departure, we took on TWO girl Maine Coon kittens - born end of July 2005 and growing fast! A few pictures.

My name is Matinicus and I'm a Maine Coon Cat born on June 23, 1988. I'm named after Matinicus Island which is in Penobscot Bay; my people selected my name after they adopted me. My father's name was LL Bean. They say that they chose me from a number of kittens because I kept wrapping myself around their legs. They didn't realize that I chose them.
As I grew up, I was often rambunctious. At times I was called "Hypercat" or "The Thundering Herd of One".
My people and I moved to the Finger Lakes area from the Hudson Valley more than nine years ago. We like it here very much.
