Tortie's are gorgeous cats, and in my experience usually have a pretty strong personality. Our Muffin, aka Goose, is 22lbs of sass!

This is the best description of an angry cat I have ever read. I miss our Maine Coon, Hippie. About 10 years ago he passed at 16 years old. He LOVED water. Whenever we would take a shower, he'd sit on the back or side of the bath tub and put his tail down into the water.

As soon as he saw me, the growling began. Maine coons are large...and sharp on all 4 corners. Being in a confined space, I slowed my roll a bit, but he wasnt posturing. Inching forward, he began to sound more and more like a meth fueled garbage disposal. Still, being me, I slowly stretched a hand out. He stopped growling and gave it a sniff. Then another. Then I petted an ear and he leaned into it and I scratched behind his ears and the purring began. I withdrew from under the bed, and he shortly followed. He has followed me room to room through 2 apartments and finally my house, over the last 8 years like a dog. I love that cat.
