Pippin

About Me

Active within 1413 Days

Hi! My name is Pippin

I am a Maine Coon from Greenville, SC

Nicknames: Sweetie, Big Red Monster, Big Boy, Pippin-baby

Age: 15 years old

Gender: M

Coat: long haired

Education: Despite being the definition of scaredy-cat, Pippin has flown cross-country to Seattle, taken 600 mile car trips, and even relaxed at a friend's house!

My favorite tricks and treats are: If it's dark and you walk into a room where he is, you can call his name and he'll squeak in response so you know where he is and you don't step on him. and Purina's Wisker Lickin's Dreamy Duos, both flavors. He'll even do tricks for them.

Where I hang out: He has several, but I would guess his top two are in his cat furniture "penthouse" and in the hammock by the patio door (so he can look out.)

My favorite grubs: The natural Science Diet--he loves it and tries to "help" me when I'm pouring it out.

My pet peeves: He hates for me to be working late, and woe betide should I come home after dark. He scolds me.

What I love about my owners: Pippin doesn't really know how to type. And I can't really say what he likes about me, other than just about everything. (He'd love it if I stayed home all day every day with him, so he doesn't like the job part of me...)

My cat hobbies: He likes to go into the backyard with me--but I have to be there too. Should I not come along, he wants back in immediately.

Pet motto: Any day can be made better with a nap.

How We Met

I had lost my beloved cat to cancer earlier that year, and I didn't want another kitten right then, but I knew I had to do the research because there might not be kittens available.

I wanted a Maine Coon because their personality matched my previous kitty's the best. But when I went to the breeder's house, there was one kitten available (lots of others, they'd just been spoken for already).

He was a little orange ball of fluff, scared of his own shadow. But when I picked him up, he looked up at me, gave a little sigh as if to say, "now I'm safe", and promptly fell asleep on my shoulder.

What could I do?! I forgot you don't pick out a kitten; the kitten picks you. So two weeks later (after a previously scheduled family vacation I couldn't get out of) Pippin came to live with me.

Thinking Small (Smokey)
I've met cats like you, Smokey. They get up on my lap and seem quite miffed that they're dripping off every which way! Like it's *my* fault my lap isn't big enough!

Oddly enough, Pippin doesn't have that problem. He gets hot quickly 'cause of all that fur, so he's a "beside" cat, not a lap cat anyway. (most of the time.) And, for a cat, he's remarkably clumsy. Good thing he understands "my toys" and "his toys"--so he doesn't play among mine and knock the fragile ones to the floor.

Come visit me, Pippin.

Getting Underfoot
I don't know if you *can* teach a cat to tell you where he is in the dark like Pippin does. Because I didn't teach him to do that. Pippin was born with partial cataracts, so he can't see any better in the dark than we can! Most cats think you can see just like they can, so if you run into them in the dark (my brother calls it trying to make a kitty slipper), they get all offended at you. I mean, after all, they can see you perfectly well, so you must have *meant* to run into them. But since Pippin can't see very well (the veterinary opthamologist told me he probably sees as well as a near-sighted human), he doesn't want you to run into him, so he lets me know where he is. It's *so* nice.

Come visit me, Pippin.

What a beauty!
Hi Pippin - what a handsome kitty you are! I think my baby brother Mickey needs to take some lessons from you about how to let us know where he is in a dark room. He seems to keep getting under Daddy's feet - so far no serious injuries - to Mickey or Daddy!

Come visit me, Mac & Mickey.

Hello!
we do look alike. I think I small I think I can fit perfectly on or in anything small. I jump on my grandma lap so hard that she gets bruises, but she loves me. She does not even like cats but I am a such a lover boy. Do you care if you are picked up or your belly rubbed? Hope we can be pals

Pippin watching
Hi Sprite! Pippin's not looking at birds; that window looks out onto the covered driveway/parking area. He's waiting for his mama to come home from work!

How did I get this picture if I wasn't there? Well, I was. This was when I discovered Pippin will pose on command. (I nearly dropped the camera the first time I said, "come on, pose for me," and he *did*.) So he was doing various poses while I was taking pictures, and this is the one I knew from seeing it from the outside. I parked right up next to the window, so he would sit there to watch for me to come home.

Thanks for visiting!

Pippin and me

Come visit me, Pippin.
