A lovely story! Valentine looks so much like the cat I had until he passed in 2019.

We had cats for years, but never a Maine Coon. I did a lot of research on them when I wrote book 3.

I absolutely loved Rupert (the Maine Coon Cat) from Amanda in England! It’s great to see a photo.

And this cat looks just as I imagined Rupert. Glad you loved him!

Maine Coons are such adorable cats. They are also reputed to be very easy going, affectionate and loyal. Thanks for sharing this story, it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day.
