It's OK, my husband knows about it and understands. It's not just a one night stand, as this love affair has been going on for the past 10 years. Who is it with? Mr. Milo.. He's got beautiful green eyes, has stunning black hair with a little bit of grey and white for distinction. He is like a typical man as he loves it when I scratch his head, back or behind his ears. He's like my husband in a lot of ways as he's usually quiet but when he's hungry you can bet you'll be hearing him call out, "What's for dinner? and in the mornings, he stands next to the bed calling out for breakfast.
He is a lover in the bed as well. He will sneak up on me in the middle of the night, lay his paws all over me and 'knead' me. I love to be 'kneaded' don't you? Then, when you least expect it he'll lick your nose with his scratchy tongue. Oh.. Mr. Milo..
He is well groomed but will let me cut his nails when I feel they are digging in my legs.
Who is Mr. Milo? He's my utterly adorable, most affectionate, Maine Coon Cat.
Mr. Milo will be 10 years old this coming April and it seems like yesterday that I rescued him. I say "rescue" because the home that we bought him from was the worst living quarters you could ever imagine for such a beautiful breed, or any feline for that matter.
He is an indoor cat who gets his exercise by running around my house and catching mice, flies and every other bug that crosses in front of him. That is of course, all BUT a Stink Bug as even Mr. Milo can't stand the smell of that insect! He also tolerates my Boxer, "Ms. Bailey" and will often play hide and seek with her.
Mr. Milo sleeps in the strangest of places. During the day you can either find him on my chaise lounge sleeping like a king, or at night, under my side of the bed. He has a demanding job during the day as he protects my husband's fish tank as you can see.
Mr. Milo is a snack fanatic! There is never a time anyone can go into the kitchen without Mr. Milo following you and crying out for a snack! He also loves medium rare London broil and his dessert of choice is Angel Food Cake. Strange I know for a cat to love cake!
Mr. Milo is so lovable, huggable and confident. He's dependable, reliable and one fantastic animal. He greets our guests and will sit there until he gets the tap on the head. He's my furry best friend for sure!
