the care and keeping of your maine coon cat

Maine Coon Or Siberian Mix?

by Belle
(Houston, TX, USA)

I just adopted my third kitten "Bonnie"(the more the merrier)!

And well she is about almost 6 weeks old and is simply irresistible, she is such a fur ball as you can see lol.

She is very playful but once she settles she likes to fall asleep right next to me, no matter where I am!

Now getting to my question, some have said she could either have some Maine Coon or Siberian in her, and I wanted to know what you guys think. I'd appreciate your answers. :)

PS
Also if anyone could help me know her coloration!

theory

I actually believe this cut fluffy wonderment is a Maine Coon grey tabby mix. I have seen plenty of pictures of this type of cat that I believe I am mostly correct. However it would be awesome if she was a Maine Coon Siberian mix

I have an adorable 1 year old mix. My cat Mr. Mittens and your kitten have resemblance. The face and ears are Maine Coon body Siberian tail mix. I would know because of Mr. Mittens. Got luck your kitten is adorable.

Ears of a Main Coon

With those distinctive tufts of hair at the end of pointy ears, I'd say lots of Main Coon (we have two Main Coons and as kittens they looked just like this, and the female also has touches of red). The Siberian has rounder ears.

This is super late I know...

I just waned to quickly add, although its late, that your kitten is super delightful! Looks to me more like a Maine coon than a Siberian, or just a mixed long hair, but precious none the less

Here's a link to the Coon colors.

Bonnie looks like a brown mackerel tabby. She is absolutely darling.

I adopted a Maine Coon identical to Bonnie, and after two months, she died of FIP . Molly was just 6 months old. Since her death, I have learned a lot about Coons, and I love looking at all the pictures of them. Thank you for sharing Bonnie with us.

awwww!!

Red tone
by: Belle


She has some reddish tones in certain part of her body, a friend just said her coloration could be Silver Patch tabby...Her brothers and sisters were just as cute only that some were Tortie and one was black.

Whatever she is, she's adorable!

Well, she's a tabby, but what about that red splotch on her forehead?

I'd add her to my household in a minute!

Thanks

Thank you! Gosh when I laid eyes on her I just couldn't resist but take her home with me :) Please do send me a pic, would love to see it. She will be 6 weeks pretty soon. Also what would you consider her coloration to be?

Kitten...
by: Renee


Your kitten is beautiful!!! She looks a lot like my Tulu, who is here on this Maine Coon site. I'll see if I can forward you or post the pic.

Anyway, I believe she is a Coon mix, perhaps a Siberian mix as well. Have you brought her to the vet yet? They have good knowledge of that.

But just by looking at her I would definitely say Coon, let me research a little and I'll be back! :)
