A Cat Named Muy

By

Posted Jan 17, 2015

Muy was a very...special cat.

She was probably the worst cat I have ever owned in my entire life.

I got Muy because nobody wanted her. She was a hard to deal with cat who as adorable was she wasn't worth it. There was no litter training her, she would use it to urinate, but otherwise she would do her other business along the molding of the walls. It was too much to handle, and when I got her she was pregnant. Those kittens were the same. They were untrainable, the kittens were given to good homes with people who would try their best, and Muy, until she was able to be found a new home became a mostly outside cat.

I've never heard anyone have such problems with a Maine Coon, but this little girl just wouldn't learn.

We tried everything from citrus smelling things to clean the floors, to cinnamon. At one point we even bought puppy pads, and she would avoid them entirely. It was out of control.

There of course were good aspects. She was beautiful, independent but would come to you for attention, she was a very loving cat when she wanted to be, but she had a mean streak. She's bitten me more times than most of my animals combined. That's impressive since I've had a lot of animals.
