Maine Coon Cat: Meet Hobie the kitty with a big personality


Meet Hobie the Maine Coon Cat, also known
as Hobster the Lobster. Hobie is Sam’s red-headed brother, and he’s been causing mischief ever
since he joined his human family. He may look cute, but this one is a troublemaker, though
a lovable one at that. Hobie has a fascination with water and if
there’s a dripping tap or a bathtub being filled, he’ll be the first one at the scene.
He loves drinking water from the tub, and if someone were to forget the toilet lid up,
he’d likely climb in there too. Playing with bubbles is another pastime for
this cheeky little Maine Coon. He’ll paw at the water while the tub fills, and then once
bubbles start to form, he’ll watch in amazement and then try to paw those too. He’ll lean
in as far in as he can without falling into the water, though I have a feeling he would
enjoy a swim if he ever were to tumble in. Once bath time is over, Hobie will wait for
his human to leave behind a wet towel and then he’ll crawl under it. Like I said, he’s
a strange one. When he isn’t playing with water, Hobie enjoys
grooming time. Oh, and scratching furniture as well. Especially
if the piece happens to be an antique. This lovable Maine Coon kitty is always up
for play time. He enjoys chasing a laser across the couches in the living room, and he could
easily spend a half hour running back and forth if it weren’t for the fact that his
humans get tired. Sometimes, however, his balance is a little off. There he goes… Aside from laser tag, he also enjoys playing
with ‘Specie-Bird’. He likes to catch a mouthful of feathers, but not when the camera is rolling.
That’s when he decides to sit down and just stare at you. Another game he enjoys is playing tag with
Sam. Hobie will chase Sam down the halls, and then the two trade places, and Sam chases
him down instead. It must be pretty scary having a red-headed giant chase you down the
halls, but since Hobie runs faster than Sam, he has nothing to worry about. Now this is where Hobie shows of his acrobatic
skills. If running weren’t impressive enough, he also enjoys leaping. And I’m not talking
about leaping on furniture; he’ll jump onto the kitchen counters, then onto the fridge,
and then sit himself atop the cupboards. And after all that, he’ll take a minute to
enjoy his own lunch. Bon appetit, kitty! Of course, Hobie is still a young kitten,
so after all that activity, he needs a siesta. If all his running around has tired you out,
this is when you can enjoy a nap! Quick, before he wakes up. Cuddles are still a work in progress for Hobie
the Maine Coon, but regardless of that, he’s a keeper!
