Furbert Leo Cappuccino was born on April Fools Day-4/1/1999- he was the only longhaired kitten in a litter of shorthaired barncats!!! At the time we had become interested in the Maine Coon breed after going to a cat show the precious fall... We had started doing research online and looking at Maine Coon kittens... Furby LOOKED just like the REAL thing... I told my husband that if I could have Furby... I wouldn’t need a “real” Maine Coon... I still ended up with 4 MCs... Furby was named by my 5th grade students who were playing with those robotic talking Furby dolls... My husband Randy thought Furbert sounded more dignified... Leo- because he looks like a lion... Cappuccino because his creamy fur looks like it is topped in frothy white! J Furby is the original prankster... He actually plays jokes on his sisFURS and broFURS... Loves to hide and then pop out... Splash then with water from the water dish... and look away... like I didn’t do it!!! Furby is one of those FUN cats who is a joy to be around!!! -Carm C.
