I'm so happy you are still together @Nikolas.  He's happier with you no matter what shape you are in.

Thank you very much @Marigold as that is encouraging. I do have a good size back garden and Vinny enjoys going out and we are leaving the back door open right now. I run hot anyway so it's fine with me. What really needs to happen is for Sophie to start to really bond with him, play with him and enjoy him. I find that it's me who will do this and , no doubt, it won't harm me but I need to know the cats are going to be ok. If pushed then I will push her and him out if she doesn't pull her finger out. She was out shooting the boxing at Bethnal Green last night and I had him with me, walked him & played with him. I do love him but I can have periods where I am bed bound so I need to know she will prioritise her responsibilities is all. 

Many thanks

@Nikolas I suffer with Crohn's and that's bad enough but I also have an extremely rare form of vasculitis called Wegeners granulomatosis and treatment is chemo and more. Please don't give up on a pet that has been with you all of its life. To you they are a part of their world but, to them, you are their entire world. I have times where I can't get out of bed but I guess it easier with cats though we now have the new arrival of Vinny. You would never forgive yourself if you let your companion go. Please do t think I am judging from afar, I habe found that my pets are much nicer and loyal than most people I've met. 

Wishing you all the best mate

So here are my pets:

First Ask, he's appropriately named Ask as he's a Norwegian Forest Cat and Ask and Embla were the two first humans in Norse Mythology.

Secondly, Ramses, equally appropriately named as he's an Abyssinian, who are originally from Egypt. First recognized cat race in fact.

Thirdly are my two Whippets. Gunnar and Børre (norwegian male names)

@Jellopanda those are the coolest cats and dogs I've ever seen! I didn't even know there were Norwegian Forest Cats or Absynnian Cats! All I have our feral cats with half their ear cut off to show they were captured and nurtured or spayed then let loose to run in the wild. I am the crazy cat lady everyone has in their neighborhood. Seriously I never know how many cats I have my son finds strays and hides them in his man cave in the basement. So now back at my house I Ohio  my husband and my brother in law are taking care of them, and my husband hates cats, well hates a strong word, he tolerates them. Thank god for my brother in law @killbill420 he loves them and they love him. They pooped on all my good shoes, I swear they hate me! Seriously you have the coolest animals I've ever seen! The dogs, whippets, don't see those much in the states either.

Thought i would also post my mother's cat too. A Bengal Cat called Pardalis, as he looks a little bit like a grey Ocelot (whose latin name is Leopardus Pardalis). I'm thinking about getting one myself since they're fantastic cats. Not only do they look amazing, but they have great personalities (which is more important to me than appearance). That is if you like very active, intelligent, attention-seeking cats, which i do. Pardalis loves to turn on the faucets in my mother's sinks to play with the water and opens the front door when people knock on it.

Been in contact with a Bengal Cat breeder and she's very strict about who she sells to, but she's ready now to sell me a kitten who is super-cute and likely to become very large as both her parents are (they're generally very large cats). Haven't decided yet tho, because firstly it costs 2500 dollars and secondly they're fiercely territorial, which may cause problems with my two other cats and my two dogs. Especially the dogs may get it rough.

Post got a bit longer than planned, but i finally get to the picture of Pardalis.

Two of my little furkids. The small lady is Brianne and she may be small but has a presence that would shame many people. She has catitude. 

The big boy is Armorica Viking raider but his pet name is Cosmo. He is now just under 14kg of Maine coon and some people are scared of him but he is the gentlest and lovely pet you could wish for

@Jools I absolutely love your Maine Coon. He's impressive, majestic even. 

14 kg you say. That's really big even for a Maine Coon. Is that ideal weight for him?

There is some dispute among breeders whether Maine Coon or Bengal Cat is the largest cat race. My mother's Bengal is only 8 kg, but size and weight does vary a lot for both races.

I've always wanted a Maine Coon, but never had one, but i think i will get one at some point. Feels like one of the eighteen cats who shared my home in my life one of them should've been a Maine Coon.

As far as i know no one really knows what the origin of the Maine Coon race is, but the most popular theory is that they're descended from Norwegian Forest Cats brought over to America by Norsemen who mated with short hair cats. Which i think is cool since as you can see above one of my cats is a Norwegian Forest Cat. Certainly those two races are the ones who most resemble each other.

The Norwegian and the Maine coon are the two largest domesticated cats. 14kg is fine and he is still not fully grown. He has been checked for HCM and is free of it so is a big healthy boy. I would not be without one or a few Maine coons in my life as they are natural comedians and will always cheer you up. I honestly wouldn't want to be without my feline friends. I've never seen a really big Bengal. My friends is 9kg full grown and considered very big for the breed. 

I am in hospital and awaiting discharge today. Just waiting on meds and letters. I can't wait to see my cats

I maybe be mixing my breeds up. A bengal in U.K. Is not a big cat per se and are mainly brown here with lovely rosette markings. There are new Asian leopard cats and new Asian bengal cats and I wonder if these are being mixed up in my head. A UK show class bengal would cost around £450-600 pounds sterling here. The cat fancy people will travel all over the world to buy cats. Bengals are very vocal too. I love vocal cats. The Maine coons chirrup and make such funny sounds. They really do talk with you.
