Remember when I found a black bear cub in my driveway and the mother let me have her? Well, the bear suddenly grew giraffe legs and turned into a cat!
Tempest is an unusually dark coloured baby bear out of Jelani and Rihanna. Her great grandmother is “Hazel” whom I owned many years ago and sold to Allegiancelove Cattery in 2012.
Granite and Tempest were the “thickest” kittens here this year. I would confidently say Tempest is the PERFECT classic Maine Coon - in each and every way! Proper proportions, a gorgeous head, impressive size, great coat quality and a marvellous profile. Her hips were rated *excellent* which is rare in Maine Coons.
The Bear’s temperament is as sound as they come. She tries to get along with everyone and, like her mother Rihanna, is literally crazy about human touch. I have admired her easy going nature from the moment she fell asleep on her back, in the palm of my hand, at 2 weeks of age!
