Manfred is my Maine Coon, sired by an unknown Maine Coon and mothered by Tirion (asimple brown tabby with more sass in her pinkie toe than anyone I know!). For years Manfred has suffered from mats in his fur. I have suffered for trying to comb them out. The gentle giant becomes quite ferocious when I try and comb around his hips. His large size and breed make his hips sore most of the time and grooming isn't the easiest for him. I decided enough was enough. I had him taken to the vet and transformed from grizzly bear... to MANFRED, LION KING!!
BEHOLD! Manfred in all his glory!
They even groomed the tip of his tail into a perfect paint brush.
Ok.. he is starting to get annoyed with me following him around with the camera. LOOK AT HIS BOOTS!
This is Manny before the cut:
Yes... I can tell you have already fallen prey to his cuteness.
Now I will give you an example of his many, many names. Manfred, Manny, Mindingo, Mandingus, Mr. Man, Manfred J. (when he is in trouble), Mannius, and Fred. He has more but... I should get back to work.
