This is the newest member of our family below. He’s 11 months old, part Maine Coon like Dexter was.
We have just been waiting to see when we were ready to get another cat and have been more actively searching for about the last month. He comes from a rescue shelter where one of the people who works their lives three doors away from us. The owner had allergies and had to give him up and she was clearly going through a push-pull because she couldn’t bear to leave the cat behind and think that he might be in a cage for a few days. When she met us, she began to feel much more comfortable about letting him go. We named him Tallinn after the major city in Estonia which is also the city where my grand piano comes from and where we visited for nine days in 2019.
Tallin is a very calm cat and is slowly adjusting to his new place. He purrs. He sometimes comes when called. We like him a lot and it is now changing to loving him. And I think he really likes us as well!
