My Chico is a 5 month old Maine Coon, a friend of mine gave him to me, she owns his mom and dad.
He is a pure-bred and has all of the Maine Coon's characteristics, but his hair is not as long as his siblings :( nor as fluffy and long as when he was just 1 month old.
Here is a picture of him, kindly let me know if he is gonna have the fluffy-long-haired appearance again as he grows??
Chico is so adorable! I just love his name, too. You're right, he's a bit less fluffy than other Maine Coons at 5 months. Our Leo appeared full grown to household visitor by the time he was 5-6 months of age! But, I'm thinking Chico's a bit younger in these shots.
If he's a pedigreed Maine Coon, and his parents are registered, and your friend is a Maine Coon cat breeder who is sells her kittens, then yes he will fill out and look just as fluffy and longhaired as any Maine you see on this site! I say this because that's the only way you know for sure that Chico's parents are both pedigreed, registered Maine Coon cats.
But he sure looks like a perfect Maine Coon kitten to me! What a doll.
Thanks for sharing him!
