Maine Coons are a popular breed of cats that capture the hearts of many feline enthusiasts. Their large size, fluffy coats, and delightful personalities set them apart from other cats. In the UK, Nala and Thor are two Maine Coons that have gained a considerable following on Instagram, thanks to their expressive faces and owner, Zoe. As I came across their photos, I couldn’t help but notice how well their emotions come through in each image. With Zoe’s permission, I am thrilled to showcase some of their best moments with you. I’m confident that you’ll adore these lovable cats as much as I do!
As per their Instagram description, this dynamic duo of felines are living their best lives as Maine Coon kittens. The younger of the two, Nala, is a one-year-old black tabby, and the elder, Thor, is a four-year-old black smoke Maine Coon.
The adoring owner of Nala has shared some fascinating tidbits about their beloved furry friend. Nala is a ball of energy and loves to play non-stop, with her priceless facial expressions adding to her charm. Despite splurging on expensive toys for her, Nala’s most treasured plaything is her owner’s hair bands. Nala holds a special place in her owner’s heart since she was the runt of her litter and no one wanted her. During a visit to the breeder, Nala’s siblings ganged up on her while she cowered under a table, prompting the breeder to designate it as her safe spot. While many people are drawn to larger Maine Coons for their size, colour, and appearance, Nala proves that even though she is small, she is just as delightful and amusing as her larger kin.
Apart from her charming and playful nature, Nala tends to display her skills and abilities on certain occasions.
Are you interested in learning more about Thor, the Maine Coon cat? He’s not just known for his striking fur, but also for his unique personality. Unlike his housemate Nala, Thor is a bit lazier and more mature at the age of four. However, with the right encouragement, he can transform into a playful kitten-like companion. Despite his somewhat grumpy appearance, Thor has a gentle nature and loves to be pampered with scratches and cuddles. In fact, he sometimes exhibits behavior that’s more typical of dogs than cats, which can be surprising. For instance, when you scratch his back legs, he may roll onto his back and expose his belly. Be prepared for some drooling or dribbling during your bonding session with this lovable feline!
Thor is an exceptionally reliable companion who doesn’t require a leash when exploring the garden as he doesn’t attempt to scale the fence. This massive kitty, affectionately known as ‘the big boy,’ responds well to his moniker and has been a part of our family since February. Despite being somewhat reserved around men, Thor’s self-assurance is growing steadily. Although he was once a stud cat, his previous owner adored him and wanted him to have a loving home, which we were fortunate enough to provide. Thor has honed the “May I speak with your supervisor?” facial expression to perfection!
One can easily spot the difference in size between Nala, the Maine Coon, and Thor when they are placed side by side.
Nala and Thor love to chill together on their catio, be it capturing adorable snaps or simply relaxing and recharging.
When I spoke to the owner of Nala and Thor, I asked her what message she wanted people to receive from looking at her cats’ pictures. She replied that she believes all cats have kind hearts and hopes that this idea will stay with anyone who views their photos. How sweet! If you’re a fan of these lovely Maine Coon cats, don’t forget to check them out on Instagram. Many thanks to Zoe for graciously sharing details and images of her furry darlings.
