Breed Profile: Gentle Giants

An American legend, the Maine Coon brings love and loyalty to the home.

At 15 pounds, Bruno is a presence. He has tufts in his ears and feet. He chirps and meows loudly. He fetches small toys and balls. He has large golden eyes and a magnificent coat. His plumed tail announces his entrance into any room. He follows his people around, greets them at the door and generally is extremely affectionate (if also a bit moody and demanding). Although he usually uses his big paws lightly, he can sound like a herd of elephants when he hurls himself down the stairs, demanding attention.

I am an owner of a beautiful Maine Coon cat, which looks exactly like the one on the cover of your January 2009 issue of Cat Fancy. I would like to obtain this issue of the magazine. Please advise me how to do that. Thank you

I would love to read the whole article. I just finally made it out to the pet store today and was not able to get the January issue with the Maine Coon Cats in it. Is there any way I can get this issue, as the February one was available today and therefore bought that one. I do plan on getting a subscription, but would love to get the January issue.
