Rajah...he's a mean drunk and he sticks his tongue out at all of us.
With all his bad qualities, Rajah's owner still insists he's very sweet. This 13-year old Maine Coon/Siamese mix has the pretty blue eyes of the Siamese, and the luxurious Maine Coon cat fur tinged with just a touch of orange.
Rajah came to his owners as a Rescue pussycat. That's one thing we saw over and over again in our Fabulous Feline entries -- so many kind-hearted people have opened up their homes to pussycats in dire need of help. I cannot tell you how many times I was brought to tears as I read the stories of how people were taking in cats that were abandoned and who would otherwise have led very tragic lives. I believe there's a special place in heaven for people who save animals. I really do.
In addition to being homeless when he was just a little kitty, Rajah suffers from epilepsy and has some brain damage and damage to his optic nerve.
Despite this, the sweet giant learns new things, and enjoys the other five cats he lives with. Among the things he's learned is how to be a HUGE Mooch. He'll pretend he's going to have a seizure to get more Treats!
He loves Catnip, but his owners have to be careful when they supply him with his kitty narcotics because he's a mean drunk. When he has catnip, he runs to any other cat in the house, gets RIGHT in their face, and starts bopping them on top of the head with his (declawed) paw. To say the other cat is surprised at this unwarranted violence is, according to his owner, an understatement.
Yarnmarket is proud to announce that Rajah, the con artist and violent drunk, is a Fabulous Feline.
