We adopted Brother Bear, our beautiful Maine Coon boy! Watch as he transforms from a angry ringworm kitty to a majestic lap cat!
Can I tell you guys about our loving boy, Brother Bear? He’s the best.
Almost 6 years ago to the day Matthew rode the subway to the last step in the Bronx. It’s a long ride there, but there was a treasure there waiting to be brought home. We were about to adopt Brother and give him a forever home. We first saw Brother online on a adoption site and fell in love with him. It didn’t take much persuading to quickly make this a 3 cat home (at that time it was only Essy and Xanadu). With vet papers in hand, pink carrier in the other (sorry Brother!), Matthew took the subway back home to Brooklyn where I was waiting for him at the door like the super excited cat lady you all would imagine.
First funny story, the Vet papers called him MIKE. Seriously, a cat named Mike. That’s hilarious and horrifying at the same time. Everytime I look at his papers I laugh. Mike! Unbelievable. Thankfully Brother agreed that his name was horrible so he happily approved of Brother (or Brother Bear for his Mom and Dad to call him).
