About Ivanhoe

Born ~5/16/2021, M, Black and White Maine Coon mix

Well, really, Have you ever seen a kitten with such outrageous hair sticking out everywhere? First, he has handfuls of white hair coming out of his ears. And, of course, he has white whiskers and white eyebrow hair all over the place. If you look at the photo of Ivanhoe lying in someone’s arms, you can see he has unusual white body hair so long that it floats over his black hair. What is that about?? I know it is hard to see in these little photographs. Ivanhoe is a kitten who got the decorative hair upgrade. He is still young now, too young to have grown his ruff, but he will grow into an amazing big Maine Coon mix with wonderful hair everywhere. Of course, black and white kitties are so very striking and dramatic.

This is not a macho boy. Ivanhoe is a sweet, nondominant kitten. He is not complicated; he just wants to feel safe and loved. He loves to play with kittens and explore and cuddle. What else does life offer? Yes, you are right; he also loves to eat. He will be a large kitty. Look at his big feet with their fetching black “toe beans.” I think he will be a somewhat comical, large, solid Maine Coon mix. I can imagine him sourcing a comic strip.

Maine Coons make good family cats. Their agreeable, good nature helps them to be comfortable with noise and chaos. They like to be in the center of things watching all the fascinating chores you are doing. Respectful children over three feet tall will probably be fine with Ivanhoe. I don’t know how he is with dogs, but if they are cat-loving and respectful, I expect they would be good companions, as would nondominant cats and kittens. At all times, his family needs to be protective of his gentle, sweet, trusting nature. I included his adorable baby photo for your pleasure. It is the last photo below.

Some family will be so lucky to his warm, entertaining companionship,

Ivanhoe eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.

Ivanhoe is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, and microchipped.

He is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.
