Des and More Des…

Yesterday, I decided to follow Des around to take some pictures of him. I believe though, the photos do not do him much justice. He is so much cuter in person – or in catson?

The thing about Des that is unique is his fur. He has this curlyish fur, which I have seldom seen on other Maine Coons. His fur is different to that of Sweetie’s.  He still has the the all important lynx-like tufts of hair on top of the ears, the characteristically long britches, and ruff and tummy hair , but it is slightly wavy – if he were a human being, he would probably have hair like Patrick Dempsey a.k.a Dr McDreamy :o)  His fur though, is heavenly to touch. He is lovely to snuggle up to when he’s napping. The following are some of the pictures of our beloved Desperado (can you see his fur curling out? Away from his skin? haha) :

    I see that you got Cute Little Maine Coon Fella there… I would say Good Luck for you Breeding. But I would like to say that the Curly Fur for Maine Coon is basically from the natural oil from the body and it’s usually happen to entire boy which has much more heavy stud oil. And I strongly believe that using some good degrease will help you get back the nice coat.

    Hi Icecoon,

    Thanks for the tip! He does feel a bit greasy eventhough we bathe him weekly. We will go and look for degrease solution as soon as possible.

    Well I Strongly Suggest that you use the buy a groomer goop…. Leaving the Stud Oil on the boy for too long is not a good idea….
