All About Me

Onyx is a large, gorgeous, solid black maine coon with a sleek long-haired coat and dazzling yellow/green eyes.

Onyx is a beautiful black, long-haired cat. His mother was a domestic short hair but his dad was a Maine Coon. While Onyx gets his coloration from Mom, his demeanor and gorgeous looks were inherited from Dad. Onxy is very affectionate and loves to sleep with and stay close to his people. He has an extremely sweet personality and is playful and energetic. Although a quiet cat, he is not standoffish and immediately warms up to new people. Onyx especially loves sleeping in his cat tree with his brother, Nimbus, and watching the birds and squirrels. Both Onyx and Nimbus were raised with small children under the age of 6 and were very loving and easy going with them. Onyx and Nimbus are patiently waiting to go their forever home. If you have a chance to meet them, they will steal your hearts.

Onyx and his brother Nimbus were returned to IAR due to allergies in their human family. They love each other and have never been separated, they would prefer to be adopted together if possible. Although they were initially raised with other cats, their former home did not have other animals so they have not had interactions with other cats or dogs recently.
