Bonjour! My name is Charlie “le chat” and I am a fluffy, 7 year old Maine Coon mix that speaks French and acts more like a dog than a cat.
My family is looking for my next loving home. As much as it breaks their hearts, they recently had a baby and I need to be the star of the home and not be stressed by my little brother crying at all hours of the day.
Ever wanted a dog but couldn’t have one? I’m your guy! Maine Coons share traits that are similar to dogs and are known for their high intelligence, loyalty, and even their ability to learn tricks. That’s right, I know how to sit, shake, and jump on command (with a little cat treat help that is). I’m also harness-trained (sort of), so you can take me for a stroll in your back yard as long as it’s calm. I even know how to brush myself and love doing just that (see pic!).
Looking for a little international flair and culture in your home? No problem – I speak Cat-French and know bird (oiseau – “wa-zo”), fly (mouche – “moosh”), come (vient-la “v-yun-la”) and good kitty (bon bebechat – “bohn bay-bay-sha”) since my parents are Franco-American. I’m even a classy Tuxedo-kitty with a mustache, so I was practically born to be French!
What else? I’m a big fluffy cat that loves belly rubs and being picked up once I know I can trust you, but since I’m a Maine Coon, I’m not really a lap cat. Instead, expect me to like to be near you and hanging around in order to protect my family and territory.
I will do best in a home without infants, small children, or other pets since I’ve never been exposed to them in my life and need to be the star attention-grabber. I’m an indoor cat only and need to stay that way, even though due to my size (20 lbs!) I could hunt with the best of them. I’m big but also a little fluffy (both extremely soft fur and tummy) due to my love of food and treats.
I’m currently conducting interviews to find my new adopted family, so if that sounds like you, drop me a line and say bonjour. Oh, did I mention I’m also whistle-trained? That’s right, give it a toot and I’ll come see you to say hi and maybe eat a treat. Au Revior et A bientot!
