Take a look at my "Little Kitty" and see what you think....
(Dyersburg, TN, USA)
My cat named "little kitty" was born from a strange brown colored tabby with blue eyes named Abby. We got her from the pound and she had kittens.
We anticipated finding all of the kittens new homes so we never really named him. He stayed so little forever, that we just called him that. Well sometime at about a year old or so, he grew huge, and this was after he was neutered. He has such a different personality than any cat I've ever had. He is so very vocal. He communicates with me sometimes better than my 10 year old son. :)
He has had lots of tribulations in his life, but he's always made it through. He is a super loving cat. HE just wants to rub anything that will let him rub it (cats, dogs, he doesn't care...), and he wants to groom everybody too. He is huge. I haven't measured his length, but he weighs 15 lbs, and is not overweight. He is so active. He can't lie down for more than 10 or 15 minutes at a time then he's ready to go back outside. He comes home to eat, and sometimes for a short nap, then he's off again.
I know what his mother looked like, but I have no idea about his father. I'm going to send you a link to some of my photos. All of little kitty's siblings were solid white with blue eyes. I'm not sure where he got his genes.
You know all about Maine Coons. Will you let me know what you think? Obviously I know he's not full-blooded, but everything I read sounds just like him. I want my next cat to be a Maine Coon or very related. He's just a gentle giant, and so smart.
