Initially we got two mainecoons because we thought one would get sad and lonely while we are away from home.
Funny enough, Shiva and Stalone, being sister and brother, didn't bother to keep each other's company too much: they like to play different toys, prefer different foods, have different preferences how to spend their leasure time.
Until yesterday. I was on my way to bed when my eye caught a "two cats in one cat bed" picture. I think, they figured out that it is more cozy that way while I was on my caribbean cruise. Just took them almost 2 years to do that... Yay!
