About Us

Individually, Jane and I grew up with animals and our son, Joe has never known a home cat-free home. He’d be lost without our Maine Coon cats…

We currently share our lives with four Maine Coons and you’ll probably notice many articles about these beautiful cats on this site. We’ve accumulated a lot of experience first-hand with this breed during the last 25 years.

Fortunately, Joe is as passionate about animals and their welfare as we are. When we came back from a recent holiday in Turkey, I asked him what he would miss most about the week away.

Was it the constant sunshine, huge swimming pools, great food, or water slides perhaps? Maybe the Segways or electric Trike’s we could hire out or perhaps the watersports that were available to us?

Nope, none of those. It was the cats! There were many stray cats roaming the holiday complex and we used to get some extra chicken during lunch and dinner, hide it in a napkin and sneak it out of the restaurant.

Anyway, I digress. Here at, we’re very careful about the articles we write. The vast majority of the information we use stems from personal experience and knowledge, of which we have stored up a great amount over the last 40 years or so.

If there is an article we feel we need to write, for instance relating to whether you should de-claw a cat or not we do, of course, have a personal opinion on this but always try and balance our own opinion with hard facts from trusted sources.

This website does take a surprising amount of work to keep going but it certainly isn’t a chore. We manage it in our free time and both of us have full-time jobs.

My wife works as a TA in a local primary school and I’m in IT, working for a bank in the City of London. This site is our passion though and if we won the lottery, we might quit our full-time jobs but we wouldn’t quit this!

Personally, I have two main passions in life – animals and fast cars and have recently started a new, much smaller site in this latter niche. You can take a look if you like over at

Anyway, here’s a couple of pics of our last two furry boys who we’ve recently lost, both aged 15.

Are Maine Coons friendly? Maine Coons are sociable and friendly cats who crave the company of people. They are loyal like dogs and have gentle natures which make them perfect for families with babies and children.
