Always looks like he’s in a grouchy mood. Come to think of it, he always ACTS as though he’s in a grouchy mood, too!
Has paws bigger than some people’s snow shoes.
Was actually the runt of his litter (which is really, really hard to believe!)
Typical of male Maine Coons, he’s had a heart murmur since kitten-hood. Luckily, it’s stayed at a Level Two since it was diagnosed.
Loves to sleep in the bathroom sink.
Is partial to Temptation cat treats; won’t eat any other brand.
With his long mane and ruff, he definitely resembles a lion, although he lumbers about like a big old bear.
Has a snaggle-tooth.
Is extremely persistent with the head butting when he wants attention.
Hisses. A LOT!
Growls. A LOT!
Stands to reason, then; one of his nicknames is “Piss Pot Pete”!
Has been known to take a swipe at (fill in the blank) when he’s irritated.
As macho as he seems to be, he loves feathers.
Likes to jump up onto the bed right at the time when you’re ready to make the bed.
Although he doesn’t seem to like her that much, he sleeps cuddled up to Lucy quite frequently.
Routinely drinks water by scooping it out of the bowl with his paw.
Does not like his “clumpies” (huge mats of fur) messed with!
His former name was “Scooby”. Can you imagine?
He’s SO soft.
“Talks” more than any of the other cats (even if it does sound as though he’s constantly complaining).
Has a low, rumbling motor.
Is extremely graceful, given his size.
Has freckles on his face.
Is a lap cat.
Ares is totally in love with him. Pete tries to avoid Ares about 90% of the time.
Has some voracious knock-down drag out fights with his litter-mate, Lily.
Is fairly gentle and paternalistic with Athena and Apollo.
Scares Lucy to death.
Despite all of his ill-temper and grouchiness, he is most certainly a majestic looking cat!
