    1. What? Really? My wife had a Maine Coon… That cat was massive, weighing in at 22 lbs at one point.

      1. I remember watching a short TV series about 10 years ago where cat fanciers were taking their prize (or prized to them), cats to competitive cat shows. Some of those people made the rounds practically every weekend, traveling great distances to show their cats.

        One guy had a Maine Coon cat and he (?) was huge. The owner said the cat was quite accustomed to baths, because the cats had oil glands and their thick fur became quite pungent. True?

        1. Not with our cat. He was fluffy but never pungent. My wife bathed him once in the spring and once in the fall. Each time, he looked like had lost ten pounds.
