We usually associate large animals as being intimidating and ferocious. Most of the animals that rule the jungle are usually very large in size. But that is not the case for this Maine Coon cat. Ludo is actually a sweetheart who would never harm a living soul. He’s a lovely cat- he’s very friendly and affectionate but some people who visit are scared of him as they’re used to seeing dogs that size, not cats, explains his keeper Kelsey when asked to describe how he is.

Ludo is commonly mistaken to be a fearsome cat, his owners are quick to note that he is not at all what he looks like. In fact, you would be surprised to know that he really is a softie. His owner further explains how he behaves with them, Even though he’s huge, he’s so friendly and lovable. He’ll often come over and lay on the bed or flop out on the floor to be stroked. Did his owners have any clue that Ludo would become this huge enough to hold a world record?

No Idea

The owners revealed that even when Ludo was a kitten, he was not that little. When we bought Ludo, he was no bigger than any of the other kittens in his litter as Maine Coon’s are quite chunky as kittens, Kelsey admitted. She further explains that it is not troublesome to take care of him as people may speculate. She explains this by saying, Although he’s big, we’re still able to pick him up and take him places if we want, but he is very heavy.

New Family Member

So as a family, we are often faced with the anxiety that our pet may not respond well when introduced to our kids. Children are way more vulnerable when it comes to spending time with animals. This was the same case for the Gill family when they wanted to add a new family member. Kelsey soon got pregnant and a healthy baby boy was born. The couple decided to name him Ryder. It was fortunate for them as Ludo soon grew very fond of him and there was no problem at all.

In Love

The Gill family was so pleased to learn that Ludo was absolutely amazed by Ryder. He was always spending time with the baby and never wanted to leave his side. Ludo was such a gentleman when it came down to handling the baby. The couple explains that it was love at first sight when Ludo met the new baby Ryder. After their meeting, Ludo remained by Ryder’s side as if he was ready to protect him at all cost. However, this behavior turned out to be unsurprising for the parents…
