She looks like our girl Nippy!! We found Nippy outside at 3 days old and she turned out to be a beautiful big Maine Coon. (maybe) I think Rachel is either full Maine or a mix for sure. Nice pictures.

Rachel the Maine Coon
by: Maine Coon Cat Nation

Hi Craig and Lori,

Rachel couldn't look any more like a Maine Coon if she tried! She's a beautiful girl, by the way.

I often caution that feral, rescued or adopted cats are more likely a Maine Coon mix or Maine Coon lookalike. That's because those cats were usually found or given away in kittenhood. Full Maine Coons always come from a breeder.

That said, once a Maine is purchased and brought into a home they are occasionally abandoned later (sometimes that owner can't keep them for whatever reason, or there was a death in the family, or a move - which is an irresponsible reason to dump a cat at a shelter of course.)

Rachel could very well have been one of these unfortunate kitties. A Maine Coon without a home. You don't get those ear tufts just anywhere!

She was lucky to get a fresh start with you, probably a better home than she could have hoped for!

Thanks for sharing Rachel with us!

More about Rachel
by: Craig and Lori

We think Rachel might be part Maine Coon. She weighs 10 pounds, has tufts of fur on her toes, small tufts of fur on her ears, big fluffy tail. She's very vocal and likes to play with water. She is very affectionate with us. She will hang around with visitors but will not let them pet her. What do you think?
