Ianthe, Alegria and Zeno – three gorgeous Maine Coon cats

Nov 16, 2010

The Maine Coon breed of cats are absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t wait to meet these three special felines.

Meet the very beautiful, very curious and very playful Ianthe..

She loved to play, and would quickly run and jump, all the while keeping a keen eye on her toys!

Zeno, the male and the oldest of the three, was really quite a lot bigger than the two females. Curled up in his cosy basket, his size wasn’t so obvious at first; but when he leaped up for the cat toy I got quite a surprise!

And then I saw Alegria..

I was a little worried that shy and anxious Alegria would hide away whilst I was there, but no, here she is… She was clearly a little anxious at first, but with a little patience, and perhaps some curiosity from Alegria, she did show her pretty face :)

She’s beautiful! :)

I can’t resist sharing a couple more photos of Ianthe..

Ianthe was quite content with my presence and took every possible opportunity to pose for me ;)

They were really an absolute delight to photograph, I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!

Have a wonderful week :)

Best wishes,

    Seriously cute, they must be a lot of work to brush etc.

Nature inspires me constantly and I’m often pausing to take it all in or to capture what I see in a photo. I usually only have my phone camera with me on my morning walks so this round of Impressions is a blend of DSLR and iPhone photos. I love witnessing the seasons...

We're still regularly geocaching! We go out with a walking route in mind and a cluster of caches to look for along the way. It's nice to escape the busy beach area and find quiet places in nature. In early April we invited friends to join us and we walked round...
