Our last cat, Aldo, was a Maine Coon and lived to the age of 24. I loved that cat more than any other. When he died, I was determined to get another of the same breed - but only if I could find one at a shelter. Well, Chester is 90% Maine Coon and is the most affectionate cat I've ever had! He loves to have his belly rubbed - and you know how rare that is! He's a love bug and enjoys watching the world go by from the top of his 5-story kitty condo.
