Is my new kitten part Maine Coon??

by Estelle

I think he has most of the Maine Coon characteristics and he's definitely got the personality down pat. I just wanted to get some opinions from people who know and love this breed! Thanks for your help!!

Hi Estelle,

What a cutie! It's so hard to tell with a young kitten, if he might be part Coon. Maine Coon cats are a natural breed anyway, with all colors possible.

A pure-bred kitten is clearly a Maine Coon, with it's ear tufts & pedigree, too. And some adults are clearly Maine Coon cats, some not so clearly.

It's possible for any fluffy kitten to be suspected of being part Coon. For Maine Coon mixes, it's just so hard to tell just by looking at them, especially kittens!

Sometimes when they get older they get a distinctive mane, or ear & feet tufts, or a super fluffy tail, or all of these.

As for appearance, cute young fluffy kittens are just impossible to pin down as part Maine Coon- unless they have those distinctive ear tufts (fur that sticks up on the top/tips of the ears, not just coming out of the ears).

Based only on his photo I'd have to say he sure could be. If you've researched the characteristics and feel he has most of them, the decision is up to you, if you want to introduce him as a Maine Coon mix.

Just like human parents, you know him best! Thanks for sharing Jax, and send us more photos as he gets bigger!
