Kiwi or Coon

by Jerry D
(Kern County, Ca)

This is our shelter kitten KIWI. She is the calmest, most well behaved and gentle kitten.

She has a lot of characteristics of a Maine Coon. Tuffs of the ears, big feet with tuffs in between her toes, long fluffy tail.

We also caught her chittering and makes other weird noises our other cat doesn't. She is only 6 months old we think due to her coming from a shelter, but she's the size of our almost 1yr old tuxedo.

I personally hope she is at least a mix due to I would love a Maine Coon. Either way we all love her.

Does He Look Like a Maine Coon?

by Brandon Brumett
(Decatur Illinois )


I just got this sweet little kitty yesterday, 5/22/24. His name is Obito.

I haven't observed his traits yet, but I know his mother is a short-haired cat, so he's a mix. He looks like a Maine Coon to me.

What do you all think? I appreciate any help you can provide.

Not sure

by Loiise
(Michigan )


I was told she was a Maine Coon kitten but I don’t think so. She’s not that big.

She’s only 8 weeks old, and although she’s different from my other domestic cat she’s still not looking like a Maine Coon to me.

She’s a black and white kitten and seems long with polydactyl paws.

Rescued a Barn Kitten and Unsure of Mix?!

by Melody

Distinct facial features

Distinct facial features

This is Willow! She is only 6 1/2 weeks old but has some distinctive features already.

Her paws are huge for her size. She has the lions mane or ruff around her neck. Her eye shape is similar to that of a Maine Coon and she has the beginning meow sound of them.

She’s an orange female and mom was a calico. We don’t know who dad is so thinking she’s half coon or Norwegian forest. She has a very loud purr and is SO mischievous and curious

Maine Coon Mix?

by Hope Krauel
(Jefferson City Tn USA)

Just lounging

Just lounging

I got my baby kitty from foster care and they didn't know much about him but I have read articles on a lot of animals and keep coming back to being part Coonie!

He's 9 months old and I've only had him 3 months. He's about 9-10 lbs now and he's a beautiful boy!

He's got the fur coming outta his ears and hair growing from behind his ears and he has a slopped nose and his beautiful eyes slant up slightly.

His magnificent tale is long and fluffy and when he's got it up walking through the house he looks so majestic!

He's got a few layers of fur and the front of his chest looks like he's got his armor on! He has the cutest little meow but he also makes another sound a lot when we talk but it’s not a meow, I guess it’s more like a chirp but We talk and talk! lol

He's not a lap cat and I wish he would snuggle more but right at 3 a.m. he's waking me up laying on my chest just purring away!

I wish he would make it latter in the day but I’ll take any love I can get. He does follow me room to room so I have to be careful where I step because he's usually under my feet.

Whatever breed he is I am so thankful that we found one another because I love him with all my heart and he has really brightened my world the day I brought him home!

The middle pic is most recent so he's just a little bigger now. Thank You for any input you can give me.

I think I have a Maine coon mix

by Tiger
(Bronx New York )

She’s fiery full of energy. She’s attentive and she likes attention. She likes to eat always running.

She’s growing up so fast but I got her from somebody. I paid $50 and I know she’s not a purebred but I know she’s a mix.

You can see it in her eyes, you can see it in her face and her ears.

color looks rite
by: brandon

I have an 8-week-old cat named Obito. I think he is a Maine Coon mix because he has the same coloration as your kitty, but slightly brighter. So, I think you may have a Coon mix as well.

Maybe Maine Coon Mix 3-4 Weeks Old

by Kathy
(Boynton Beach, Florida )

Oliver

Oliver

This little kitten was found a couple days ago by a neighbor, who couldn’t keep him and asked if I wanted him knowing that I have two other cats I did decide to bring him in.

My daughter came over and she used to own a Maine coon. Another neighbor owns a Maine coon, and they both said oh look at the hair and his ears and the little hair on top and look at all the hair between his toes.

He looks like he could be a Maine Coon mix. Hoping he is happy no matter what because he’s absolutely adorable..

Sisters possibly mixed Maincoon

by Katrina
(South Carolina )

I fostered two 6 week old kittens that were brought in together and found on someone’s porch. Cinnamon, the tortie, likes to play fetch and has an abundance of energy.

She is very curious and follows me around the house. She and her tabby sister, FeeFee are shy with strangers. FeeFee is not as energetic as Cinnamon but still very playful.

FeeFee likes to watch me brush my teeth and is fascinated by water. She is a sweet cuddler and doesn’t mind being carried around.

She has enormous paws with all kinds of fur sticking out from them. They are 10 months old and are 11 and 10.5 lbs.

Onyx

We got Onyx through a local humane society.

They said possible Maine Coon mix. When we got him he was VERY thin and VERY skittish. He has put on weight and loves on us all now but still pretty jumpy.

Weighs about 15lbs now and is very healthy. We love him either way but just curious if you all think he is a Maine Coon mix?

Let me know what you think.

i think you have a Main Coon
by: brandon

"Hello! That beautiful cat looks like a Maine Coon to me. He has a short, boxy face. In one of the photos you provided, I noticed that he's sleeping with his paws crossed. I understand that's very common for a Maine Coon to sleep that way. I think you have a Maine Coon!"

Maine Coon Mix?? Zorro

by Hope Krauel
(Jefferson City, TN, USA)

Sitting Pretty

Sitting Pretty

I’m not sure if my Zorro has got Maine Coon or Norwegian or both in him!

I rescued him a little over a month ago and he is going on 8 months old and about 9 lbs.

He has a sloped nose and when I was looking up cat breeds Norwegian came up. He’s a very determined little cat and wants to be loved on his time and play on his time!

Loves to lay behind my head propped up on the pillows or crawl up on my chest at 3 a.m. and push my hand to pet him while he’s purring away and that would be great if I was awake! lol

His fur is like silk and his hair is growing up over the ears on the back side and the fur coming out of ears.

His paws are big and fur growing out of them as well and his tails so big and fluffy! I am not sure what breed he is but I know I’m so thankful we found each other and it’s just me and him.

He loves my family and grand kids to when they come over. His body when stretched out is slanky as well and he isn’t crazy about being picked up and kind of goes limp when ya do pick him up but I am trying to get him use to it.

I wish he was more of a lap cat and I don’t know if he was kept in a cage the first six months of his life and that’s why he’s not but he’s young yet and I hope he will eventually like to snuggle more as he grows.

What do y’all think he is?? I could go on and on about him but I better end this here! Grateful for him!

I think he is a Maine Coon mix

Dusty

Dusty

Dusty is 16 months old and has developed a mane as he has matured.

He always had the tufted toes, tufts of fur coming from his ears, long silky fur and a majestic tail.

He loves to play fetch, is always stealing things and carrying them around in his mouth.

He moves his bed from room to room so I never know where I will find it and keeps stealing the bathroom rug. He's very active and very amusing.

(Kent UK )


Dad was possibly the black Maine Coon that comes in to our garden. Mum is a tabby.

Kitten in question is a black tabby possible Maine Coon mix. This kitten is almost 4 weeks old, weighs 415g, larger than the other kittens.

Tufts of fur in ears are more than other kittens, tufts of hair in between his toe beans as well.

Is she a Maine coon?

by Jennifer
(Missouri)

We found Kobe as a stray and she was maybe around 6-8 months when we found her.

She was already big for a cat then but she has grown and filled out a lot more since then. She has the coolest personality of any cat I’ve ever had.

Lux the Wild

by Meghan McKern
(Chicago,IL, USA)

Lux is allegedly 6 months old. She weighs 7.5 lbs. but is a bit chunky. She plays hard, body slams and somersaults. She is quite the hunter, butt wiggle and army crawl.

She has the lynx tips and her face scruff is growing in. Her tail expands like a skunk tail even though it looks like a raccoon tail, it has a lot of personality.

A Little Maine Coon??

by Hope
(Jefferson Coty TN)

The Lion King

The Lion King

My Zorro is 6 months old and is a lovable curious kitty!

He loves trying to get into my closets when I open the door and I have to hold him back! He loves to play with his birdie on a stick and chases it! lol

I have only had him 3 weeks and I got him out of foster care but I feel they under fed him so he was on the skinny side.

I’ve now have him on a good eating schedule and he’s gained a little weight, probably 8 lbs now.

He has a long bushy tail and the hair growing out the ears and the fur behind the ears are starting to grow over the ears. He’s got good size paws and fur in between the toes.

His eyes and face look like a lion so I call him my Lion King Lol. I applied for a few Maine Coons but was always a day late until I found Zorro and I feel like he was meant for me being Maine Coon mixed or not.

This kitty has a special place in my heart and I’m so happy the powers that be sent him my way.

She does have a bit of the main on her chest but can’t tell with the indie in from being spayed ! She’s now 6 months and 6 lbs (weighs more than my chihuahua) is there such thing as a miniature main coon ? 😂
