I have a Maine Coon cat I raised from a kitten and she's unlike any cat I ever had, very high energy and aggressive, climbs my drapes, gets under the covers, can be a terror to my other normal cat, very intelligent and adorable, but can be a handful. The author has a book she is selling on how to tame your coon cat. Sounds interesting.
