As feline enthusiasts, many of us harbor a soft spot for Maine Coon cats due to their stunning physical appearance, massive size, and incredible personalities. If you’ve been fortunate enough to share your life with one of these majestic cats, then you understand what I mean. In the UK, Nala and Thor are two Maine Coons whose robust personalities shine through in their photos, revealing a range of moods and expressions. I stumbled upon their delightful images on Instagram and sought permission from Zoe, their owner, to showcase them here. I have no doubt that you’ll find them as charming as I do – without further ado, meet Nala and Thor!
According to their Instagram bio, these two cute Maine Coon cats are enjoying their lives to the fullest. Nala, a one-year-old black tabby, shares her living quarters with her senior cat companion Thor, a four-year-old black smoke Maine Coon.
Read on to discover more about Nala, as shared by her owner:
Nala is an absolute riot – always full of energy and up for playing. Her expressions are priceless, and she never fails to make us laugh. It’s funny because we’ve spent a lot of money on toys for her, but what she loves most are my hair ties! Nala holds a special place in our hearts because she was the runt of her litter, and nobody wanted her. When we arrived to choose a kitten, her siblings were all waiting to be taken home, but they kept attacking her. She was so tiny that she would hide under the table, and the breeder said it was her safe spot. Unfortunately, many people want Maine Coons for their size and appearance, and don’t see the value in a smaller cat like Nala. However, we hope that our page helps to show that Nala is just as gorgeous, hilarious, and lovable as her larger siblings.
When Nala isn’t being adorable or playful, she also enjoys displaying her skills!
Are you interested in getting to know more about Thor, the Maine Coon cat with a uniquely stunning coat? I had the pleasure of speaking with his owner, who provided me with some insight into his personality. Despite his striking appearance, Thor is quite the opposite of what one might expect. He is lazy and four years old, making him older than Nala. However, when he’s in the mood to play and we put in some effort, he acts just like a kitten. Don’t be fooled by his grumpy-looking face; he has a heart of gold. He loves being scratched and cuddled, and he behaves like a dog in some ways. Once you start scratching his ticklish spot on the top of his back legs, he’ll flop onto the floor and offer you his belly. He’s always drooling and dribbling, too.
Thor is such a reliable cat that he can enjoy the garden without anyone supervising him. Unlike other cats who try to jump over the fence, Thor doesn’t even attempt it. Weighing 9kgs (approximately 20 lbs), he responds well to his nickname ‘the big boy’. We’ve only had him since February, and although he can be shy around men, he’s getting better every day. Thor used to be a stud cat, but his previous owner couldn’t use him for breeding anymore. However, the owner loved him so much that he wanted him to find a special home, and luckily, we were chosen to give him a loving home.
Thor definitely has mastered the “Can I speak to the manager” expression!
It’s amazing to see the size difference between Nala and Thor, especially considering that Nala is a Maine Coon. She’s so tiny compared to him!
When Nala and Thor aren’t busy striking poses or taking their much-needed cat naps, they enjoy spending time together on their special catio.
When I inquired about Nala and Thor’s owner on what she would like people to understand from her cats’ photos, she mentioned that all cats possess beautiful hearts. How adorable is that! To stay updated with the continuous charm of these expressive Maine Coon cats, follow them on Instagram. A big shout-out to Zoe for sharing their pictures and details with us.
