 I noticed they havent been using the kitty box hardly.  So I think they are getting comfortable with going outside.

Quoting rosebud727:

Their so cute!

My male cat has Maine in him, he loves to go outside. My little girl stays inside. She's a princess.

Thanks for sharing.

 Yes I remember your sis in law with the awesome indoor cat room. I cant believe that cat hid for a year!  Wow, it took her quite awhile to accept him.  So I shouldn't get kitten anytime soon?  ; )    Buddy was starting to come out more and more until I introduced them to the great outdoors then he started hiding all over again.  I have never met more of a scaredy cat.  Sheesh!

Quoting gr8d8n3mom:

OHHH I love them!! Just give Buddy time, he will venture out on his own,and make his way!

Remember my sis in law Shows Maine Coons? They had one pass away a yr or so ago, and about 6 months later got the big red one Rusty, Well Mary would have NO part of Rusty in HER house! LOL, SHE stayed hid up in S & C's bedroom for almost a yr! yes a YR! Mary would come out of course to eat and potty but she was very cautious and sly and made sure that no good Rusty was no where around! LOL (poor 6 month old Rusty didn't do anything wrong) but Maine Coons are such "family" cats, and  after all HE was Replacing her beloved maximus! LOL..Finally Mary has come around and now "allows" Rusty to sit by her when she eats and sometimes when they are just "having family time!" Just the other day C. told me she actually caught the 2 playing but had to stand back and "spy like she didn't see them" LOL

Your gonna love them!

 Buddy let me brush him.....once. 

Quoting Why123:

Those are beautiful cats.  The one in our house that never left the back bedroom is now roaming around the house.  She has even climbed up on my lap when I am sitting on the couch.  Yours will get there too.

 Thanks, Buddy is so cute.  He waits for me to come home.  As soon as he hears the garage door he is sitting on the chair waiting for me to come say hello.

Quoting Shellness:

 I see you got them :) I hope you find them to be loving once they get used to the place. Poor kitties don't know whats going on! Our Maine Coon Cat is the most loving cat I have ever see. Yours are gorgeous!

 We have a stray Maine Coon. When he 1st came here, he was a big bunch of knots and briers. After brushing and snipping for 2 weeks or so, we discovered a beauty! We found out that he was a Maine Coon when we took him for his rabies shot and check up. He refuses to come in EVER. We have tried so many times. He was even bitten by a coyote and lost a leg. Thought for sure he would come in then! Nope!  We are able to coax him into the bike shop every night with smelly wet food. It isn't that he is shy, he is the most loving cat of all 4 of ours, he just hates being inside. The other 3 are inside ONLY. They aren't Maine Coons, one is a Siberian and the other 2 are just plain beautiful. :).

Your kitties are beautiful!  We use "people names" for our pets, to. We have Dickie, Gunther, Mr. Stray, and Pearl. Our dog's name is Julie
