RAINBOW JOY is Cat of the Day


Name: Rainbow Joy
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Maine Coon Cat
Home: Marilla, New York, USA

My Maine Coon Cat Rainbow Joy is a blue/silver patched classic tabby w/white. She was born on Bastille day, 7/14/00 - Viva la Joy! Rainbow Joy was named for Joy Adamson, who was my heroine as a girl. She's the lady who rescued, rehabilitated and released the lioness Elsa to the wild in the book/movie "Born Free." Rainbow is because she was a mom cat and she has such a colorful coat that she had the ability to make a rainbow of kittens. She was an excellent momcat! We have her son Pride with us still, so we have Pride and Joy!

She is a Champion in the Cat Fancier's Association. She's a DIVA and is well aware of her own attractiveness! She has a thunderous purr... and she's a talker! She makes her opinion known fur sure!

Here is a photo of her in her maternal role, Joy giving Pride a lecture when he was but a kitten, taken seven years ago. She was an excellent mother cat and took meticulous care of her kittens. She taught Love, the only girl kitten, how to stand up to her roughneck brothers. She taught the boys to play nicely and wash behind their ears. Joy is a very playful kitty. She also enjoys her special time on my lap. She has the loudest purr you ever wanted to hear. She is also very talkative and lets you know exactly what is on her mind! Joy's son Pride remained with us and she still shows him special attention and discipline even though he is bigger than her now!

Joy is doing well and turned nine on July 14, as is her son Pride who is 7.5. Her other kittens are all fine, too, in their forever homes. She loves to play with catnip toys. She's also very vocal and has complete conversations with us... Her talent is being a suPURRmodel and has been painted by several artists. Her photo appeared in the books Cats 24/7 and she's quite the Celebrikitty!
