Lily has Maine Coon character traits
Lily is approximately ten months old and weighs ten pounds! Her parentage is unknown as she was handed into our vet as unwanted at three months old.
I initially wondered if she was part Maine Coon due to her large size and enormous fluffy tail, but after reading the traits of the breed it really got me thinking. She is as big as my nine year old male cat Harry now!
She has an amazing tail, just like a feather duster. She loves water and drinks out of the tap if is is running slightly, will also sit in the sink with the tap running over her head, which she really seems to enjoy!
She seems to love people, never hiding if visitors arrive. She seems as if she is interested in everyone and everything, sitting in the middle of the room watching everything that is going on.
She has beautifully soft fur which is longer on her underside and she has a ruff of fur around her neck like a lion's mane.
She has a high pitched voice, doesn't really miaow like my other cats.
She does not have the lynx ear tufts but she has beautiful tufts of fur between her toes, which are longer on her back legs.
Lily is a lovely girl with an easy going, gentle temperment and I feel so lucky to have her.
Would love to hear opinions from people in the know.
Lily is a doll! I can see how sweet she is just by looking at that face!
You are right, she has a lot of Maine Coon traits. If those ear tufts were a bit more pronounced, she would be the spitting image of a Maine Coon!
I think it's entirely possible she has some Maine Coon in her. Let's see what others think, too!
