If you’re a fan of cats, chances are you’ve got a special place in your heart for Maine Coons. These felines are known for their large size, fluffy fur, and charming personalities. Nala and Thor are two particularly expressive Maine Coons from the UK who have gained a following on Instagram thanks to their owner, Zoe. I stumbled upon their photos and was struck by how much their moods come through in each image. With permission from Zoe, I’m excited to share some of their best moments with you. I have a feeling you’ll love them as much as I do!
According to their Instagram bio, these two cats are enjoying their lives as Maine Coon kittens. Nala, the younger one, is a black tabby who is around one year old, while Thor, the older cat, is a four-year-old black smoke Maine Coon.
The owner of Nala shares some interesting facts about their beloved pet. Nala is a bundle of energy and loves playing all the time, her facial expressions are priceless. Despite buying expensive toys for her, Nala’s favourite toy is her owner’s hair bands. Nala holds a special place in her owner’s heart as she was the smallest of all her siblings and no one wanted her. When they visited the breeder, Nala’s siblings attacked her while she hid under a table, and the breeder mentioned that it was her safe place. Although many people prefer Maine Coons for their size, colour, and appearance, Nala proves that even if she is small, she is just as lovely and entertaining as her bigger siblings.
In addition to being sweet and silly, Nala also has a tendency to show off at times.
Curious about the Maine Coon named Thor? His unique and eye-catching fur is just the beginning. According to his owner, Thor is quite different from his feline housemate Nala – lazy and older at the age of four. However, he can transform into a kitten-like playmate with some encouragement. Despite his grumpy-looking face, Thor has a kind heart and loves to be scratched and cuddled. He even exhibits dog-like behaviors that can be unsettling. When you scratch his tickle spot on his back legs, he will flop onto the floor, exposing his belly. Don’t be surprised if he drools or dribbles during your petting session!
Thor is an incredibly dependable pet who doesn’t require a leash when roaming around in the garden since he does not make any attempts to jump over the fence. This 20-pound feline, also known as ‘the big boy,’ responds to his nickname and has been with us since February. Although he sometimes feels shy around men, his confidence is growing with each passing day. Thor was previously a stud cat but was no longer viable for breeding. His previous owner adored him and wished for him to have a loving home, and we were able to provide just that. Thor has mastered the “Can I speak to the manager” expression, no doubt!
It’s quite noticeable that Nala, the Maine Coon, is relatively tiny when you place her next to Thor.
Nala and Thor enjoy spending quality time on their catio, whether it’s taking cute photos or getting some much-needed rest.
When I inquired about Nala and Thor’s owner, I asked her to share what she wants people to take away from viewing her cats’ photos. She expressed that all felines possess beautiful hearts, and that is the sentiment she hopes viewers will keep in mind. It’s heartwarming to hear! If you can’t get enough of these adorable Maine Coon cats, be sure to follow them on Instagram. I extend my gratitude to Zoe for generously providing information and photos of her furry friends.

Meet Potato, the most adorable and charming cat without ears that you’ll ever have the pleasure of seeing. This lovable feline was once a stray cat in China before being rescued by a local animal shelter. Unfortunately, when Potato was found, he was suffering from a medical condition called ceruminous adenoma in his ear canals and flaps. Although he received treatment to remove the adenoma, it eventually returned, so the veterinarians recommended that his ear flaps and canals be removed to prevent the disease from recurring.
Luckily, Potato is now recovering well and has found his forever home with his new best friend Horlick. Even better, his owners have discovered that Potato can still hear despite missing his ear flaps and canals. While no one knows for sure when Potato was born or how old he is, his owners estimate that he’s about six years old. They adopted him on April 25, 2019, and have since celebrated this day as Potato’s birthday. Take a look at some pictures of this stylish and adorable earless cat below and let us know which one is your favorite!
