My cat Scout, a grey and white tuxie, got out a few years ago. It was a week before her appt to be fixed (she was only six months old) and of course, she got pregnant.

Two of the cats are tabbies. The other two look like a tabby/Maine Coon mix. Scout's only boy, one of the MC/Tabby-looking mixes, was given to a friend. Bonnie, the other MC/Tabby looking cat is still with me.

She has the tabby M on her forehead, but everywhere else she looks like a MC.

BTW, my vet is pretty certain that the cats come from different fathers. She believes the two Tabbies are from one father, and the MC-looking ones are from another.

She's less than a year old. I'm not sure exactly how old.

I've seen her outside for a while and decided to take her in. She's very playful and very affectionate.

If she feels she's not getting enough she'll place herself in your lap no matter what you're doing. I haven't had get very long so I can't tell you much about her personality.

Chloe has the personality to a t of a Maine Coon.

By the time she was about 5 months old she was already bigger than my other two cats that where 2 and 15.

She is laid back, loves to just cuddle with the kids and demands attention. She acts more like my dogs than a cat.

If you see my cat, he is black with a white dot at the end of his tail. He is like a panther with thick big paws.

Larger than a regular cat and his tail reaches till the top of his head. If he walks the tail is straight up with a curl at the end.

His mom is a Maine Coon. But his dad is a street cat. He loves to play with small balls or green beans. And is very nice to children.

If he does something I do not allow, I say his name strongly. Then he will talk back in defense. Too funny. He listens to his name when I call him.

Scout My Rescue

by Lauren
(Louisiana )

I grew up with a fluffy stray cat we adopted and love long haired cats.

I saw his picture on a cat rescue site and thought I had to have him after looking for months for my “dream” cat.

My husband isn’t a cat person so I knew it had to be my perfect cat to be worth the convincing. So we were in a town an hour away on an over night trip.

The morning we were leaving I looked at “Adopt a pet” website and found this beautiful scared cat pictured in his carrier. I told my husband I wanted to look at him since the site said he was actually across the street at Petco.

When we got there, they said he was at the cat rescue and my husband just told me to pick one there instead of driving across town when they closed in 30 min. I couldn’t.

I had the girl see if they could wait on us. We got to the shelter and they spoke with us and asked questions, etc.

I told them I had my heart set on Scout. They said he was in isolation due to a cold and could hold him for me while they finished his medication. I went in there, picked him up, and instantly knew he was my cat.

So in February 2018-I brought him home that night and finished his medication. He weighed 9 lbs and I was told they thought he was 2-3 years old.

I don’t know his story but I know he was picked up off the street. He let me trip his nails and licked me, cuddled me, purred and I knew he was someone’s pet before.

I don’t know anything about Maine Coon personality but he is the sweetest most lovable cat I’ve ever seen. He is obsessed with me. My family can’t believe how sweet he is and how attached he is to me.

A few months after getting him, my mom started noticing how fat he was getting. I weighed him and he was 16 lbs. He has stayed the same for a year now.

My brother has noticed how big his paws are and much bigger than his cats who weighs even more than Scout. We got a kitten last year which is now a year old and she is only 8 lbs and much smaller than Scout.

My friend noticed his neck hair and ears and mentioned he could be a Maine Coon mix.
I think he’s gorgeous and perfect regardless but I’d like to know if he is Maine Coon mix and what their temperament is. I wish I could make mine live until I die but obviously I can’t and I’d like to know if I just lucked out or if it’s the breed.
