I'd have to agree with you, Diane, the eyes are very similar! What kind of cat is he (she)?

Wonderful shot Tom! But if I didn't know better I'd say it was my Beatrice ;o) Is Jonathan a Maine coon cat too? #997957

Jonathan is a Norwegian Forest Cat, Laura. It is a breed easily mistaken for a Maine Coon. #997979
