She's beautiful! I'm glad she's starting to feel more at home. :)

She's gorgeous! So much like my Nutmeg, even to the little orange patches. Nutmeg runs around 15 lbs, maybe a little more since I haven't weighed her in awhile.

I am happy that she feels safe now. And BTW, did you know that your book Barnheart is currently being featured on P Allen Smith's Blog. He has a great review....good for you.

Beautiful cat! Once the humid weather came our Maine Coon knotted up bad if we didn't catch it in time. Ours required lotsa grooming.

I gotta know, did she come with the name lilly or was she named for lilly penleric from song catcher?

Is there a CAF reader out there from Uxbridge, Ontario? I think I stumbled across your profile a few months ago and I'd love to connect with you! I don't know where you are on your homesteading journey but I'm just starting out and it would be nice to meet a like-minded local.
Drop me a line!

What a pretty lady, Jenna I gotta ask how many times a week/day do you have to vacuum your floors?

Animal hair is an issue, for certain! I sweep the hard floors with a broom twice a day and vacuum constantly, every night.

Every night during the news, I comb my ME Coon which produces a substantial amount of fur. If you don't remove the loose fur it usually ends up turning into mats which are much harder to get rid of. If it gets ahead of you a professional grooming can get you back on track however, if someone suggests cutting the mats or shaving the cat get a second opinion. I've yet to see a ME Coon who truly couldn't be dematted.

She's beautiful, Jenna! I have a Maine Coon (Jack Sparrow) with the same thick coat and beautiful tail. I keep a brush nearby on every floor so I can brush him frequently. His fur mats up really fast, especially in his armpits (do cats have armpits?) so I try to keep ahead of it.

I'm glad Lilly feels more comfortable...can't wait to e pics of Lilly and George in front of your wood stove!

hehe...I love the videos of your critters. Sweet Kitty. The hubs and I are definitely cat people. We have three little sweeties out on the porch...I love the way they nuzzle. Though, someday we dream of having a farm can we call ourselves farmers and not have a dog? We're not into the hyper-active type though...we'd rather have a big lazy porch dweller. Any suggestions?

My mom had a main coon, and he would matt badly too. Hated being combed. She started taking him to the groomer for a lion trim in spring and late summer. He loved it! Was much cooler and no matts and with a bit of brushing in the winter was still matt free by spring. Lots less hair around the house too. Gradully Lily will join the crew, all the wolves are a bit much for a kitty to handle!

I have a "Lily" cat, too! She looks nothing like yours, but we love her a lot. She was originally named Lilith, but it's just too hard to get out most of the time. It fit her well, though :)

Ashten - What farm would be complete without a lazy Basset basking in the sun? :) Livestock guardians tend to be laid back, too but you lose a lot of ease-of-trainability because they're independent thinkers.

She's so pretty. I'm glad she's gotten over her fear of a new place. She is at home there now. Has she encountered the dogs yet? And I just love Gearge. That shot of him at the feet of the lady playing the banjo is so good. You sure have a houseful of furry guys. Lots of fur, I'm sure. I am sweeping and mopping all the time with 3 dogs. And very muddy too.

Ashten- we have dogue de bordeauxs (french mastiffs). If you want a laid back, sweet but protective and watchful breed, I'd highly recommend them.

Funny - I just had my first child and her name is Lilly (spelled the same and all)

What a pretty girl!! My little Lucy is a smaller cat, but carries about that amount of fur on her coat. We don't get dust bunnies here; we get dust rhinos.
