I had a Maine Coon, which are very similar in personality to NFCs. Sort of like an aloof dog, but extremely loyal and occasionally knowingly goofy. Mine would meet me at the end of the road when I came back from work and 'talk' to me as we strolled down the street. We had to rehome him when we went to live aboard. After three years I visited him - he looked at me, then sat in front of me with his back turned. Until everyone else left the room, when he sidled up and leaned against me. God, I miss that cat.
