This is Maia, our mostly new cat. I've written about her before because she's just so darn fun to have around. We suspect that she is part Maine Coon Cat and not because we adopted her from a shelter in Maine, but because she has many of that breed's characteristics. Except for being huge - she's not big at all.
We named her for the patron saint of my husband's town in Italy, Muro Lucano. The patron saint is St. Gerard and his feast day is October 16th - and that's the day we spent an hour and a half in the shelter trying to find the perfect match in a cat for us. We did. She's been the best cat ever - except when she pulls the stunt above: sleeping in the flower box hanging over the railing two stories up from the ground!
