Your Afternoon Animal Fix

by Prince Of Petworth February 13, 2017 at 3:00 pm 15 Comments

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

“This is Aristotle, who hails from Bloomingdale. She enjoys long, socratic discussions about the the squirrels who populate our trees and the merits of jumping on the kitchen counter.”

  • Hill Denizen

    Awww Aristotle has very similar coloring as the cat I had growing up. She is very pretty in her own right though. What a cutie!

    Maeby is just GORGEOUS!

    Is Maeby a Maine Coon? She’s beautiful and looks ferocious.

    • MaebysMom

      I *think* Maeby is part Maine Coon; I got her from a Craigslist cat hoarder so I can’t be sure… She’s the nicest cat in the world, though!! She only has two moods: love and more love.

      • SusieDoom

        OMG I’m super obsessed with Maeby.

      • Hill Denizen

        She looks like she belongs in a Fancy Feast commercial!

        • textdoc

          Yes!!

  • Maine Coon mixes are very rare – mostly because the breed is very tightly controlled. Of course there are some genes floating around out there, but there are lots of other longish haired big cats with big personalities that have nothing to do with (and don’t need to!) Maine Coons.

    And if you love Maeby, please take a look at Rainbow for adoption! https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/pet/5970401665.html

      There are also Norwegian forest cats that have the long double coat and the wildcat face.

      • Norwegian Forest Cats are also controlled breeding, but of course some genes may have escaped to the general population. There are loads of “mutt” cats with personality or “looks” that match some groups. The real “take away” for people looking for a certain cat personality or look is to contact rescue groups – or just look on Petfinder. There are hundreds of cats of all types needing homes and fosters will be able to help you find the exact right one for your situation.

    • Hill Denizen

      OMG I did NOT need to look at Rainbow! It might be a good thing I’m not allowed to have pets in my apartment, because I’d probably end up with 20 cats. Just look at that face! And the fuzz!!!!!!!!!!!

  • real maria

    Maeby is the most beautiful kitty i have ever seen!!!

  • textdoc

    Is Maeby part Persian? What a superbly fluffy beauty she is!
    .
    Daisy looks like she’s having fun. Aristotle looks very alert and cute!

  • Father of Fifi

    Maeby has sooooo much fluff. And of course, requisite affinity for bags. Catting right.

    Glad Daisy found a suitable basket. Good pup.

    Aristotle looks cute even when pondering. Would enjoy debating while petting.

  • Anonymeow

    Aristotle is so cute! Cute and smart- deadly combo.
