I didn't know that our cat was a Maine Coon. We just called it a Tabby Cat. Everyone in the household loved that cat. She was so playful. She loved to sleep on the area rug right in the middle of the floor. We would be watching TV, and all of a sudden she would wake up and jump up and pounce as if she was catching a mouse. We named her Starlight. The very tip of her tail was all white. I mentioned that it looked like the North Star. My daughter loved that cat. She died on the bathroom floor from old age while the kids were at school. Maureen was heartbroken. To the day she died, she would always accuse me of getting rid of her, not her dying. I could never convince her I love that cat also. Except in the spring when she would start to shed.
We were in the middle of moving. All the furniture was on the moving truck. Starlight chose that time to have a litter of six kittens. I put her and her kittens in a box and one of the movers put the box on his lap. That was the first thing they carried into the house. I put all of them with the box in the one room that I told the movers not to place anything in. She deserved privacy. She must have met up with another Maine Coon because all the kittens had that very distinctive mark right in the middle of the forehead. After she finished nursing her babies, we had her spayed.
