I know a lot of folks wanted to do something after reading the post about talented and courageous Andrei last week. Dan Gutman has it covered:

Here’s a little Willow for you. I’ve never seen a cat who eats as much as this little one does. Emma ate a lot for her little 6 lbs, but Willow is voracious. She discovered rotisserie chicken last week and has haunted me ever since – even wants the soup I made from the carcass. She sits with the dogs when I’m offering up treats and it doesn’t matter what I’m prepping in the kitchen, she sits at my feet hoping for treats from heaven (which how the chicken happened, I dropped a piece and that was that).
If there were any doubts she’s Maine Coon, all you have to do is pick her up, she’s a rock, though still a tiny kitten. All muscle and probably 10 lbs now.
As you can see, my “no cats on the table” training is going well. Though, in fairness, she’s now staying on the chair for longer when I pick her up and move her to the chair. We’ll get there.
This is an open thread!
