Quoted from AkumaZeto:

Can you spot my Maincoon?

Great breed. He does look annoyed lol! Interesting spot to be a tree dweller though.

Our Siberian cat Karolina has only recently been introduced to our game room, the HArdcade since it was under construction until about a month ago. She’s slowly getting used the noises and walks under the pins when they’re on and being played but hasn’t really gotten much interest in hopping up top or chasing the balls. The closest she gets is chasing the shadows of the light shows and likes to chill on the bottom of SCI. She keeps "Prairie dogging" watching Ms Pac Man on the attarct mode wondering what's going on with it.

Quoted from sammiesguys:

I know it's not pinball, but it's related. I was taking a picture of the Predator action figure I was thinking of using as a topper. My cat had other ideas. He jumped up on the table and attacked it:

Maine Coone or Siberian? Great pic BTW!

#177 7 years ago
Quoted from sammiesguys:

Thanks! Im not sure what he is, I found him in pretty bad shape in the woods about seven years ago. I got him patched up and he's been with me ever since.

Looks like you did a fine job! Any other pics of him?

#178 7 years ago
Quoted from Muppet_Man:

This is our other cat Bobby, who is weight challenged (Bob the Blob is her nickname). While I was waiting for a new piece of glass for my Creech, she got on it so often, we went with the blanket to at least stop her kipping on the playfield itself.

That's awesome! She has great taste lol!

Quoted from Alan_L:

What a beautiful Maine Coon. You have a ploofy tail not, but that cat has it for you.

Thanks Alan. Actually she's a Siberian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siberian_cat). They very similar with Siberian's being mostly if not all, Hypo-allergenic. We lost our Maine Coone to bad health a few years ago and miss him to this day.

Our cat has all claws but rarely comes into the game room and not open to her unless we're home. No scratches on ours we're but not the best example.

For the cat lovers:





#477 4 years ago

Sorry to hear about your cat. Any pics?

Quoted from sparechange1974:

Our 26 lb cat passed away a little over a year ago before I was heavy into pinball. Cats have always been a part of my life and we'll adding one to the family again. I've been wondering if the glass will break if a large cat jumps from the back box to the play field glass??
Is anyone worried about scratches? I was going to ad a door to the basement to prevent, but would love to hear experiences..

#486 4 years ago
Quoted from arcademojo:

Nope, no need to worry about it. My wife and I breed purebred Maine Coons. Large males average 25 to 30 pounds around.

Very cool! We miss our Maine Coon. We now have a Siberian which is very similar to them yet hypoallergenic or nearly.

#488 4 years ago
Quoted from JosephT:

Thanks for not taking my comment above too serious, I was in a rare mood last night! Only problem I have with these critters is that they are the only thing in this world that I am allergic to.
So clearly they must be evil...

Apology accepted.

But if you do like cats and allergic, consider a Siberian. Ours tested as 0. http://cfa.org/breeds/breedssthrut/siberian.aspx

and they have lots of cats (at least 10)
managed to get a photo of one of my favs.
His name is Tangelo aka little Larry,
but since watching A Cristmas Story a dozen times yesterday
I am calling him Scut Farkus, (I swear he has yellow eyes).

Larry looks great. What breed?

#1252 2 years ago

He looks a lot like a Norwegian forest or Siberian. Either way, great looking cat.

They call the Siberian’s in this color Golden Mackerel. It’s is a very cool color and striping.

I think you mean, "Down Simba!"

She was punished for that by only getting two treats that night.

Another advocate for raw food and the carnivore diet (if you can get your cats to switch!). Wife and I weren’t that knowledgeable about raw feeding before we got our Siberian, but was part of agreement when we got her.

This is what she likes and what she eats. Primal and Stella & Chewy’s.

Karolina had to have 5 teeth pulled on Friday. Gingivitis got to them despite us doing everything we can to help her knowing this. She was a trooper and today she’s getting back to her old self. She has the slow release meds on her tail hence the pink tape and shave.

For those who asked about Karolina, she’s doing fine after nearly two weeks from the teeth removals. She was pretty wigged out the first few days but back to herself. She looks funny with the poodle like tail from the slow release meds but we don’t shame her.

She’s liking the martians.

#2008 12 months ago

We love her so much! Yeah she’s still recovering from the slow release meds for teeth removal. Karolina was always a neutral cat (she was a foster mommy) that another kitty breeding mom took a swipe at her and caused that little nip out of her ear. She’s not a fighter nor is the breed. She’s small for a typical Siberian.

Siberian cats are still pretty new to NA and my wife got her from Forest Wind in Buffalo. They’re nearly hypoallergenic and have a great temperament much like Maine Coons. For anyone interested about the breed, this is who we got her through and highly recommend. Not paid but worth sharing if you aren’t able to rescue. https://www.sweetsiberians.com/

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Does anyone else have a cat who actively tries to PLAY the games? We have 2 cats, one of whom is clueless. But his sister ALWAYS runs downstairs after me and immediately jumps onto a game(even if I’m down there to do something else)
This morning, I booted STTNG and TH. when the ball goes into the trough, she -GRABS THE PLUNGER- every time. I’ve held her up to the game in player position, and she wraps her paws around the plunger and pulls. She’s not strong enough to move it much, but it DOES move. (This is on TH; she can’t figure out the trigger on STTNG).
Then when I’m playing, she grabs my hand and moves it out of the way so she can push the right flipper button. Over and over again. This morning she started biting my hand to get it out of the way, so she can hit it. I am not making this up, this is all a regular occurrence! I’m gonna get my wife to take a video

You got to get video of this!

Quoted from Darkwing:

My cat hates fireworks, and we live right across the street from west world where they do barrett-jackson, and of course, fireworks. Figured out I can distract the cat by turning on every pinball machine in the living room, cranking the volumes, and starting games on all of them at the same time. Keeps him from getting scared and hiding behind the washing machine.

That’s a great idea! Ours does too as mostly most pets do. On the plus side I’m super jealous that you’re by BJ.

Poor Penny. We had to have a few teeth removed from Karolina too.

#2587 10 days ago

Karolina had a bump/cyst on her right cheek a few months ago. The vet removed it and it came back twice. She wasn’t bothered by it, but it she had surgery to have it cut out last Thursday. She was pretty loopy but bounced back and acting like nothing happened since. Very thankful and was sent out to see if it’s cancerous. Waiting to hear back on this...

#2589 6 days ago

Thank you for the well wishes. We heard back from the vet. The long and short of it is the results they got back indicate it could be something, but not likely. So clear as mud. But they said keep an eye on her and make sure no other of these show up. Assuming nothing else does, she's good.

But the good news is she is certainly feeling happy and it is healing well. She doesn't seem to be bothered by it and she's apparently not "too stressed" lol!
