Typhoon SSBN

Marko Ramius


"Yes." I said before catttitude had even finished her sentence. All I'd heard was "Petsmart" and "Maine Coon." Two hours later, Marko Ramius walked amongst us.

You see, Squeegie was supposed to have been my cat. "The Ghost of Daisy" and all that. But nooooooo - she goes and bonds with my wife, and my wife with her. So there I was, left cleaning the litter box.

Once more, we play our dangerous game, a game of chess against our old adversary.
Look at the freaking mits on him! And I'd forgotten how soft a Maine Coon was - not quite Bengal soft, but nearly as luxurious. And he stands just like a Maine Coon too. Its so funny having one back in the house again - so very different from Squeegie. But rather than fight, the two of them entered peace negotiations as soon as they became aware of each other.

I affectionately call Squeegie "Smushy-Face" due to her short snout.
I've never seen a cat acclimate so quickly to new surroundings. I take this as a sign that Marko Ramius is an awesome cat, and that we're going to have a great partnership he and I. Marko Ramius was born in 2008, so I hope this means we have many, many years together. He kinda makes me miss my Daisy though, too. But that's not all bad.

He doesn't react well to bullets.
