Barrington

Maine Coon Mix

DOB 8/10/2014

Hello!  My name is Barrington, and I’m an exceptionally sweet and lovable Maine Coon mix.  Please don’t pass me by just because of my FIV+ status.  It doesn’t make my fur any less soft or my personality any less adorable.  In fact, here are some excellent reasons why you should adopt me:

I’m so well socialized around humans that I’m practically one myself.  So if you consider yourself a “people person,” guess what?  I’m the perfect kitty for you.

I love to play and snuggle with my feline friends.  So if you consider yourself a “cat person,” guess what?  I’m the perfect kitty for you.

Maine Coons are sometimes called the Golden Retrievers of the cat world, because we’re very sociable and affectionate.  So if you consider yourself a “dog person,” guess what?  I’m the perfect kitty for you.

So, to sum up: I’m the perfect kitty for you.  Please come and meet me, and let me convince you in person!

(The only thing is that I’m not a big fan of small children, because they are quite often sticky and try to pull my tail.  But I don’t mind medium or large-sized children, if you happen to have some already and prefer not to give them up on my account.)
