Baggy sometimes tries to steal treats from Smokey. But I put my hand in front of him, he'll stop.
If Smokey doesn't want the treat, Baggy happily takes it.

BeBop is like that with his treats (I call them cookies and he comes running). If I put two piles out for both Izzy and BeBop, and Izzy isn't eating hers, BeBop sits on his pile while he eats Izzy's.

Baggy loves treats of any kind. Always comes running if I'm in the kitchen.
Smokey is more selective. Wants fresh treats.
A friend gave me a Van Ness 'Treat Me' container with a very good seal. It really keeps the treats fresh. Smokey accepts them now. Other containers I looked at - didn't like the seal.
Baggy - he's my vacuum cleaner cat. No problem.
These 2 are very funny. Whenever I feed them, they change plates. Then change again. & again. It's 2 little kids making sure the other one isn't getting anything better.
& Baggy is the messiest eater I've ever had. Always spills the hard food all over the floor. & pushes the wet food off the dish. But not problem really. I just put the hard or soft food back in the correct dish.

Baggy is a beauty and I have heard that a lot of Maine Coon Cats are clutzy, like their paws are too big. My baby is part Maine Coon and her back feet are huge and she is larger than they expect her to be. She is a clutz too! Congrats on having a happy two cat home, it is an accomplishment, I have heard horror stories!

You went through a lot to get Baggy, but it's obvious the breeder wanted to make sure he was going to a good home especially being that he was almost 2. I imagine he was scared, but that was nice of Smokey to greet him and am glad they became friends.
Smokey is an amazing cat to be so protective of you and what he did to Baggy seems to have worked.

What is Baggy's favorite cat treat?

I've seen pictures, but never actually seen a Maine Coon before. Baggy is beautiful, and blessed to have such a loving and understanding owner.

My first cat was black. My current cat is black. We seem to be a black cat magnet.
I think they are beautiful animals. I am glad you enjoy your companions. I love the name Sasquatch for a Maine Coon, how fitting and sorry for your loss. Enjoy the memories and make lots more with the fur balls you have now.

Every day is a GIFT!

What a beautiful crew you have & have had. Baggy is very striking, as black cats tend to be. My cats, who had a rough time of it as babies, hid under my bed for about 2 weeks when I got them home, only sneaking out for food, water & litter box. Enjoy him, I think he really appreciates being in a place where someone can give him the love & attention he needs, great that the breeder realized it wasn't happening there.

Baggy is very honored to be cat of the week.

His full name is Bagheera - after the Jungle Book panther. He's as tricky. He came to live with us at 20 months. His breeder/dad was looking to rehome some of his cats as his business had changed & he wouldn't breed again for a while. He wanted his cats to have more attention. I wanted a new friend for my rescue Smokey. I had just lost Sasquatch, my much loved Maine Coon.

I was lucky enough to be recommended by another breeder who knew my from a cat list. After a 45 minute phone interview with him & her several page application & a 2 hour visit at his home, I was allowed to bring him home.

He was very scared. 1st time away from his family, & new home in apartment (not his larger suburban home). Upsetting LIRR ride & bues (couldn't get cab in city). Wouldn't come out of his carrier. Smokey actually went inside to greet him. Later Baggy ran for a closet. Spent most of the next few days in one or the other with Smokey waiting outside. They made friends soon. It took longer for him to accept me.

I think the breeder's roommate played a little too rough so Baggy didn't know what to expect with a human hand. After a month, he badly scratched me one night. Woke up the next day with Smokey right next to my head guarding me. Then Smokey jumped down when Baggy wanted to play chase & really let him have it. & when Baggy ran behind a chair, he got it again. Smokey put his paw down. He's much smaller than Maine Coon Baggy, but a street cat who held his own for a year in a large pen with many cats at a pet rescue group. He disciplined Baggy for hurting his human. It actually helped calm Baggy down when he knew his place.

Since then, we're all very happy. Now Baggy rarely leaves my side. Only sometimes to play cat games or watch the pigeons (I put bread crumbs on the fire-escape). I cleared a corner of my desk & put a pillow. He gets SOOO into head/ear scratces that he's fallen off. A real goof. Not as graceful as most cats I've had. Knocked over my big plant stand, Xmas tree, etc. But I can't be mad. He just doesn't know how big he is.

He's really a pretty cat. Mostly black. Long, large body. Pure Maine Coon. The breeder breed for health & good coat. It shows. Friendly now. Has a lot more confidence.

I'll try to stop by & post more but I help run a charity at home. (I'm retired.) Have lots of paperwork etc to get out.

Thanks again.

Peggy & Baggy

Beautiful kitty. Especially with black cats it can be hard to tell in a picture, does Baggy have long hair?
