Does Steve interact with the pups much?
Steve is majestic.

What a beautiful boy.
Oh good! Now I can go to bed after my nightly fix seeing Steve.
Such a handsome boy!
Glamorous, a pleaser, happy, and damn lucky to be part of the Cole household.
Watched the dogs at the dog park today and watched a pit bull be pulled off of the neck of another dog. They were running a playing and all of a sudden the pit went for the other dog’s neck and hung on. The dog screamed and a guy with some courage stepped in and pulled the pit off. Pit bulls, the russian roulette of dog breeds.
Steve is saying: If we’re getting a dog in a disco tie, I want a mirror ball.
Steve’s eyes are amazingly expressive. He is a very special guy and beautiful, too.
Iam always a little taken back by how much Steve resembles my rescue kitty Sulu Belle, a Turkish Angora Blue Spotted Tabby.
Although their fur colours differ — Sulu’s is mostly medium to dark gray with an almost rose tinted beige undertone & her tummy is much much lighter as is the underside of her tail which she loves to “plume” or “pluminate” — Sulu’s and Steve’s facial markings and facial expressions are uncannily alike.
And out of all the different cats that I have petted, I’d say Sulu’s fur is probably the silkiest. I only mention this because John has mentioned the same about Steve’s fur.
Anyhow when this little kitty at only 5 or 6 weeks old came into my home she was so tiny that she fit in the palm of my hand. I did not know what to call her. Nearly a week had passed before she let me know that her name is Sulu … Sulu Belle.
And yes Sulu Belle has truly blessed my heart & my home with her presence, companionship and energy. She is a true delight.
Last but not least: even though I mostly ‘lurk’ I just wanted to add:
From my heart to Yours,
Have a Joy-filled Holiday y’all. Be well.
He is like in the song “simply irresistible.”
He has those Maine Coon Cat soulful eyes going full blast.
Our Maine Coon mix uses them on me while I was preparing breakfast a half hour ago to force me to share with him an early breakfast of shreds of steak from the piece of last night’s leftovers I was about to have with my fried eggs and toast.
Here is a question. Is Steve sensitive to human interactions with each other? Our guy, Buckaroo, is the mediator / peacekeeper of the family. If we raise our voices in anger to each other, he always appears out of nowhere, gets in between us, and starts meowing loudly till we stop, and obey his command to be nice to each other.
I think Steve was a folk singer in a previous life.
That is one lucky boy to find his forever home with you. He is very handsome indeed!
@Elizabelle: My first laugh of the day!
@HeartlandLiberal: That’s wonderful. Lots of us could use a Buckaroo to help us step back and recognize how we are treating people.
Steve’s good looks clearly reflect the love he receives. Nice!
@patrick II: Having had to ‘pull’ a pit bull off my own dog’s throat twice in less than 5 minutes (because the female owner is an irresponsible pot growing dipshit) that is not a fun experience.
Luckily we were in the water at the time and it was easy to push the dogs heads under water and the female pit let go. Ordinarily you can’t ‘pull’ a pit off another dog’s throat. They don’t let go. That’s why they are a real problem. I’d say that the attacked dog and it’s owner were damn lucky. I hope someone had the presence of mind to call the cops and make an official complaint.
Some pits are fine dogs. Others pose a real and unexpected threat. Hard to know the difference.
His eyes are saying to me: “You know you want a cat.”
Love the paws on Steve – they’re like catcher’s mitts.
On a related note, we have a Maine Coon what-used-to-be-feral that basically lives on our front porch. My wife doesn’t want another cat but this cat has become the most lovable cat I’ve ever seen. I may wear her down but I have to figure out how to get the cat tested for feline leukemia, get shots and such.
Final note, a wonderful animal shelter, Animal Friends, is a couple of mile from my home. They are basically a no-kill but they had to euthanize 58 animals last year due to terminal illness so folks started yelling. Then last week they announced they euthanized a pit bull they had at the shelter for over a year. It was supposedly a great dog but after two attack incidents and despite training and a lot of patience, they said it was the dog and not the bred. I’m not sure of the background on all this but you should have read some of the hate posts. Worst part is that most of the mad ones were now not going to support Animal Friends.
We have enough of a fight against American Royalty to help the 99% – I just wish we could agree on helping the animals a little bit to make us feel like we’re winning at something.
Damn, he’s handsome. Such a soulful face.
Of course, Steve is delightful and divine, but I want to comment on how happy you (John) seem to be. I know you planned to make some changes and I hope that this is a result and not just my imagination.
You do seem more at peace in your life. I hope that’s true and that it continues.
John, you keep talking about getting another Maine Coon. I think you need to stop talking and ACT. You have two dogs; Lily and Rosy get along with each other just fine. Steve needs a buddy, too. Just bite the bullet and do it.You know you want to. Steve, BTW, is a gorgeous cat. I had one almost like him – with just a bit more white on his face. Love the Maine Coons. :) Give yourself and Steve a Merry Christmas and get him a buddy. I don’t think you’ll regret in the long run. :)
