International Premier (N) CalmatoCat Tequila Sunrise

Tequila was our first Maine Coon and the main reason that we fell in love with this gorgeous breed. Sadly she is no longer with us; she had to be euthanized because of serious hip dysplasia. Tequila’s pains is one of the reasons we work for a more healthy Maine Coon. She is deeply missed.

Like a lot of people we were just going to “get a cat”. Chance had it we settled for a Maine Coon kitten and discovered this breed, and were taken by its personality, beauty and charm.

She was only two weeks old when I was first allowed to see her, and we were able to visit her several times before she could move home with us. She stole our hearts completely and after only a few weeks we decided she would have company with another Maine Coon.

Tequila was lucky to spend her holidays every year in the countryside on the island where she was born, and she loved being out in the woods exploring. She was always a lady, always elegant and kind.
