Buster is a 2 year old cat. He has soft long hair. My husband had taken our small poodle Bear out for his morning duties. Bear found this tiny 4 inch long kitten that the dogs (ours) had brought up to the door and were dutifully watching. Bear wouldn't come back into the house without his kitten. Needless to say, we brought him in. Our youngest addition, Baby Girl, took him to task of raising. We fed, Baby Girl bathed, and Bear played with and claimed him.
He is now 2 and still likes his buddy to play with, but wants our attention all the time. We call him our needy cat because he thinks if you don't talk to him, you don't like him. He runs and hides when anyone comes just like the others. He has his own favorite spot in his favorite window. He prefers my husband's attention to mine. He has never been outside since he came in, except when he took the trip to the vet to get neutered. His hair is so soft. He resembles a fox more than a cat, even in the things he does.
Now isn't this a cute rascal face? He loves to wait by the door at night when you let the dogs out, so he can chase any bugs down that might make it in. He follows my husband every step he makes in the house (even the bathroom), talking every step of the way. He is a most unusual cat and doesn't think he is one. Buster has no fear of anything except other humans. He wants his nose into everything just like he needs to give his OK.

What a wonderfully lucky day for you to have this beauty come to be a part of your family. Even without a picture, I would have to guess Maine Coon just because of the personality you've described. As he gets older, he'll outgrow your constant attention, so enjoy it while you still can.
Our Sir Catty-Kit is a Maine-Coon / SealPoint Siamese mix and is such a joy. He'll be 7 years old next Feb. 14, but he went through all the baby stages of wanting to be rocked and cuddled all the time. I enjoyed every minute of his "childhood", but will admit I also enjoy his more "sedate" adult behavior.
Kit is our darling and is very secure in that knowledge. He thinks he's the boss of all 4 of his human companions.
Thank you so much for sharing Buster with us. I'm so glad your Bear insisted on your acceptance of that tiny kitten. Sounds to me like Bear knew just what he was doing. This is a lovely story too, and I'm betting your have a lot more wonderful stories for us. Share them, please.
I love Buster's story and he is quite the handsome one. :-)
