Basil and Thyme - A Pair of Dazzling Maine Coon Cat ‘Parlor Panthers’

Adopt Basil Today!......... Adopt Thyme Today!


Click for Info

Susan Daffron talks to Pamela Pinta from the East Coast Maine Coon Rescue (ECMCR) about two 13-month old male cats named Basil and Thyme who area available for adoption. Their equally herbally named siblings (Sage, Rosemary, etc.) were adopted as kittens but these two gorgeous cats have been in foster care for almost a year now. Basil and Thyme are a mix of Brown Tabby Mackerel Maine Coon and American Bombay. Many people aren't familiar with American Bombay cats, but they are nicknamed "Parlor Panthers" because of their sleek and glossy jet-black coats. .

Their unusual mixed-bred heritage means that both Basil and Thyme look generally like Maine Coon cats, except they have an extra sleek ebony coat. Pamela says the pair is a bit of a mischievous duo, but like most Maine Coon cats, they are extremely friendly, easygoing and social.  Basil and Thyme are both "love bugs" who enjoy being around people and cuddling and purring in your lap. They also extremely playful and have a particular fondness for cavorting in the bathtub (minus water). Ideally, Basil and Thyme would like to be adopted together since they are so bonded. They would make ideal family companions, since they enjoy being around children, other cats and dogs.
