All About Marquise the Maine Coon
Marquise very much lives up to his name – he is giant, fluffy, fabulous, and pretty much larger than life in all respects. He is a talker and loves to entertain you with his antics. He likes to be involved in whatever you are doing, whether it be folding laundry or cleaning the windows.
This beautiful Maine Coon cat is very loving and intelligent. He loves to rub himself on your legs. He can meow in 2 languages. He can open doors and figures things out very quickly.
Like most cats, Marquise will let you know when he has had enough petting. At that point it is important to let him be. A cat lover used to basic cat behavior will recognize and respect this rule. Marquise has an incredible voice which tends to carry. Because of this, he is best suited to cat lovers who have a large home where his Meows and singing won’t annoy neighbors. He is not suited for an apartment or town house.
Marquise’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Loves anything with feathers
Not so big on catnip – he does smell it but somehow he never goes crazy over it like other cats
Loves to play with water! Will jump in the shower with you
Loves bouncy balls that crunch or make noise
Has a thing for grocery containers (like the kinds strawberries come in!) has to paw them, chase them around
Loves boxes and plastic bags, the crunchier the better
Loves high places, will go out of his way to climb someplace high
Loves chicken, rabbit, turkey,
*HATES* fish of any kind (crazy, right?!) he won’t eat anything fish flavored – not even treats!
Doesn’t like beef or meat flavored foods
He has a thing for pie crusts (there’s a video of him having a go at a cherry pie during thanksgiving!)
Cute Marquise Story:
There are so many that it’s difficult to choose. He’s a funny, exotic, playful, entertaining and super smart cat. He sometimes gets into trouble (like the time he helped himself to a cherry pie), but he is 95% Angel, 5% Devil. He will absolutely enchant you.
Why is Marquise Being Rehomed?
Marquise needs a different environment than he is living in. His meows have caused complaints from the neighbors in his high-rise apartment home, and it is too confining for him. He needs to live with a family, single or couple who live in a big house. He would do really well in a rural or semi-rural home. In time, if a secluded back yard or patio where available, Marquise would be in seventh Heaven. He likes to be amidst people and pets, doing stuff, playing, hunting bugs, sunning himself and being King of your Castle. He is different from most cats in that he thrives on chaos. The more people and pets, the better. He does not do well being left home alone all day, but if other pets are in the home to keep him company, he should be fine.
Marquise’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
I think Marquise needs to be part of a family, where someone is almost always home. It can be a single person who works from home, for instance, or a larger family where different people are home at different times of the day. What clearly doesn’t work for him is single professionals who are away from the house for prolonged periods of time. He craves human contact and attention and he’s best with people who love that noisy home life. Ideally he should be in a house rather than an apartment, but I think being social is more important for him than being in a larger space. Having said that, he is a very large cat and he needs space to run around, so i can’t imagine him being very happy in a studio for instance.
