Here's her very cute winning Kitty named Crunch and its description
20210116_114527-jpg.131726
This is Crunch. We believe he is about 10 months old, and somekind of MainCoon mix, as he is growing large quickly.

I rescued Crunch on Thanksgiving Day, 2020. Thursday, November 26 of 2020. He weighed about 5 lbs, which was under for what we thought was about 6 months old.

Crunch was one of the "dumpster cats" at my work, and was born feral on the property. One could often see them launching themselves out of the dumpster when the rear building door opened. The bosses at work were getting ready to cull the ferals living on the property (which abuts to some woods and hay fields), so I decided to step up. On Thanksgiving I obtained a live trap and baited it with ham slices. It was about three hours before he showed up. After a difficult battle (where he earned the name Crunch) I got him into a box and home, where he has lived since.

Nowadays he is very affectionate and follows me around the house, becoming jealous of my fish and any attention I pay my other rescue, Mocha. It took him more than a month for him to trust me enough to pet him.
He still doesn't really know how to meow to get my attention, like his housemate Mocha, but he has an adorable squeek. He also will not let me pick him up yet, but does come when I call his name.
I feed Crunch Hills Science Diet, and the occasional can of wet food.
He is very good about the litter box, and is coming around to having baths (mandatory every month). He is neutered (on day 7 after rescue), and has his first nail trimming appointment next week. I look forward to that, because he hasn't learned to be very gentle when wrestling!

Congratualtion go out to Circus for her awesome entry of her cute kitty named Crunch. Great photo and well deserved win!
Coming in a very close second place is Abaddon with his colorful Milk Snake named Lancelot. What a great picture you took of your snake.
And in third place is Chimaera with her gray tree frog named Napolean. You took a very nice photo of your "smiling" pet frog. Good going, Chimaera.

For those who didn't win or didn't enter, we hope you will enter your pet in a future Pet of the Month contest. Our next one starts in mid May.

Our Tank of the Month contest for April has already started and will accept entries till April 6th. It will feature tanks sized at 17 to 30 gallons. If you have a tank of that size, we hope you enter the contest.

Your cat being part Main Coon mix, has intelligence in his pedigree. Main Coon cats are know for being an intelligent breed and they can easily be trained for obedience and pet tricks and are great at hunting. I can definitely see the Main Coon characteristics in the large paws and very furry appearance.
