(Buenos Aires, Argentina)
Hello, my cat's name is Freddie. My mother found him in the street about ten years ago; he probably is twelve or thirteen years old. He weighs 7 kg (around 15 pounds) and I think he's a male because of his size, but he's castrated.
I believe he might have had an owner before and he got lost or was abandoned. Some neighbours used to feed him, including my mother and one day he followed her to the store where she works and he has kept going there ever since.
He's extremely affectionate, intelligent, he's very vocal, his miaow is very loud and powerful.
I think he might be a Maine Coon because of his personality and his appearence is also very similar except for the fact that he doesn't have hair in the tip of his ears and he has curly hair in his belly.
But, what do you think from the pictures?
P.S. Great website! I've been looking for this for a long time.
