Big Papi's Story...
Meeeeeoooooowwwwwww! You can't walk into the building without hearing Big Papi's commanding voice! Big Papi sure has a lot to talk about and will let everyone know about it when they come in the door. Big Papi is incredibly affectionate and enjoys hanging out with his people, even if that means following you from room to room. It is so much fun carrying Big Papi around because he's such a cuddly big bear of a cat! He loves being pet and will reward your efforts by nuzzling your ear, snuggling close, and revving up his rather impressive purr motor! Don't be surprised if Big Papi ends up in your lap; as a certified lap kitty, that's one of his favorite places to be.

One of Big Papi's weaknesses is cat grass and catnip. He LOVES the stuff. We've caught him rolling around in catnip while lying on top of his cardboard scratcher. If there is no catnip around to fulfill his needs, Big Papi is very accepting of kitty treats. Big Papi likes playing with swizzle wands, standing on his hind legs and vigorously batting at it until he is victorious! Big Papi also enjoys passing time with a good grooming session to maintain his handsome black smoke fur and fluffy tail. He gets so excited when you show him a brush! The subtlety in which he sticks out his chin as far as it can go, suggests that he especially enjoys having his chin brushed. We confirmed this by brushing his chin (and his head) and did indeed find out that those are some of this favorite spots to be brushed! Speaking of grooming...

Several of our volunteers have discovered Big Papi has a big career ahead of him as a hair stylist. That's right - our Big Papi is a very talented groomer - a groomer of people's hair! He groomed and styled one volunteer's hair while simultaneously giving her a hug. Our volunteer was pleased with the outcome as she noted, "it didn't look any worse than it did when I arrived". Another volunteer recounts her experience under Big Papi's expert care..." He jumped up into my lap and took a look at my hair and decided he didn't like my do. So he proceeded to groom me. He went to town doing his best work. When he thought he had got it just right, my hair looked like I had stuck my finger in an electrical outlet, and don't forget, wet. All that matters though is he thought I looked a hundred times better."

Big Papi is now living in foster care where he has successfully made his foster parents fall in love with him! Big Papi has actually become something of a celebrity, complete with his own fan club. Friends of his foster parents will call and instead of asking how the foster parents are doing, will instead ask how Big Papi is doing! Their online friends will sign off by reminding the foster parents to not forget and say hello to Big Papi for them. He's even gotten invited to some parties!

Big Papi is quite a guy - an accomplished conversationalist, someone who enjoys getting nipped out, and a talented hair stylist. Honestly, how many guys do you come across that possess all 3 of these amazing traits?? Please consider adding Big Papi to your family so he can work his special magic on you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Big Papi, a Phoenix Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Phoenix.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Phoenix breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
