He has lots of Maine Coon traits. We got him as a kitty from a Craig’s list ad.

Maine Coon?

by Rob
(Colorado Springs, CO)


Hello, we adopted our cat about two months ago and think she might be a Maine Coon or a mix.

We would like an opinion. She's a beautiful huge cat. Thank you!

Not a Maine Coon
by: Anonymous

Norwegian Forest Cat mix. Google purebred Maine Coon traits and you'll see why. So many people think they have Maine Coons. And they don't. Most are mixed with Norwegians. Beautiful, big cats! Just not a Maine Coon.

Purple Pic
by: Andy Mathisen

I would say from that Purple Pic that he certainly has the mane, the ears and all the majesty of a Maine Coon. A lovely fella!

diet anyone???????????????
by: Debbie

He's a beautiful chubby little boy!!!!!!!!! Looks just like the Maine Coon my sister use to have Stormy. I have a gray with 4 white paws and white bib Maine coon Porter. She's beautiful!!!!

Loves water always in the bath tub as I leave the water to trickle so they can drink cold fresh water at their desire. I use to get her shaved with the mountain lion cut but the older she gets I don't bother any more cause she's not a big as she use to be.

And what a hassle it is to brush her!!!!!! She sees the brush runs under my bed where I can't reach her. Porter shares her home with Gunther orange tabby, I call him my boyfriend since I don't have one, and Lil Boy 8 month old Tuxedo.

Never a dull moment here. Thank you for sharing your beautiful Cheech with all of us. Debbie Mitchell Bristol,CT

Mulder

by Keri
(Washington)

We’ve Always Wondered About Mulder


My sweet giant goofball literally showed up on my doorstep in a rainstorm a few years ago on the day after thanksgiving as a 6-7 month old kitten.

He was cold, hungry, muddy, in-tact and un-microchipped and ran up screaming at me to pick him up.

At the time I thought he was just a cute little fluffball who made silly sounds and wouldn’t get much bigger (despite my vet saying ay his neuter appointment that he seemed to have comically oversized paws to grow into) but then he started growing…

Mulder is now 15+ lbs at 3.5 years old, super long bodied with a beautiful thick double coat and nearly all the physical traits of a Maine Coon (ear tufts, fluffy pads and inbetween toes, mane, loooong very fluffy tail, blocky head, etc).

I’m a dog and cat groomer and worked at a cat rescue as a teen and haven’t met many cats quite like him.

He loves water and snow, plays HARD, isn’t phased by many things the other cats in the house find scary, is extremely friendly with other animals of all species (he’s best buds with my ferrets!), and is just kind of big, clunky and ungraceful and very doglike.

While extremely friendly, he’s not a constant cuddler, preferring to sit nearby most of the time and come in for short snuggles in my lap whenever he’s sleepy or randomly at night.

I’m definitely thinking of finally doing a dna test for him after seeing some younger Maine Coons at a cat show who were fairly close in appearance to him.

by: Nick from England

I have had three MC's and he is the spitting image of them all. Loves playing in the snow, will wear a harness and sits next to you rather than on you, all MC traits. Well done you.

Yes. Milder is Maine Coon except for the papers
by: DD

Looks like lynx ears, square muzzle, large almond shaped eyes, and large paws. Does he have fur tufts on the underside of his paws? He has a sturdy build. If he’s extremely intelligent, good natured and outgoing I vote Maine Coon.

Sure seems like it!
by: Bodhi’s Mom

He sounds exactly like a Maine Coon. It sounded like you were describing my Bodhi who is certifiably 100% MC. You are both so lucky to have found each other.

Could Purrscilla have some Maine Coon in her?

by Tracy
(USA)

The vet said she thinks Purrscilla is about 17 weeks old, but we’re not certain since we adopted her from the humane society.

She weighs about 4 pounds. Her hair is a little over 2 inches, it’s shorter on her shoulders & longer/fuzzier around her neck, bottom of her ears, tail, & belly.

Her fur is silky on top. She is playful & loves people. She is interested in water from the faucet but does not want to be in it.

This is Fuzzball. She isn't a pure Maine but we think she definitely has some Maine in there!

She is loving and loyal but don't be fooled by the cuteness! She is a little diva at times as well! My son named her hence the name haha :D

Everything but Fur Length

by Jasmine

Sleepy cuddler

Sleepy cuddler

Smokey turned 3 in the summer, the sweetest and most nosey.

He's a solid 22lbs of healthy explorer and has all of the physical traits except the long fur.

His facial and massive paws are straight Maine Coon. He wants to be friends with everyone regardless of species and wants to adventure everywhere. It's stressful sometimes.

Merlin
by: BarbaraAnnMoorePeters

My baby came to me from three house fires and was found on sidewalk the next day just sitting in the Sun! Only three weeks old and a ball of beautiful black fuzzy fur! Tips on his ears and beautiful eyes!

I wasn’t looking for a kitten or cat cause I lost my cat Smokie six years ago but I fostered him! Fostering him turned into me believing that my Smokie truly sent me this kitten for a bigger reason!

Took me two weeks to name him but only afew day’s to fall in love with him! His my Heart & Soul! My little man and my Merlin! See what you guy’s think! He hug’s his groomer but not me! Yet! He comes by command! He does other things also! He’s my soul mate! Threw out cheating boyfriend! Merlin rule’s! He watches his house too! Well will try to send pic!!

Small Cat With Big Personality

by Racer Lockhart
(California )

Sunbathing

Sunbathing

I’ve had my cat, Mika, for 2 & a half years.

When I got her she was on sale on Craigslist for $20 and she needed more attention then the owners mother could give her.

She’s almost 5 now and not very big, length or weight, nor does she have the Maine Coon physical characteristics of a big tail or big paws but she might(?) have the ears, the nose, and the coat.

Although, she definitely has a Maine Coon personality! She’s the sweetest cat I’ve ever met, she’s gotten more vocal over the years & there isn’t a viscous bone in her body.

She adores pets, spooning, sometimes snuggling on my lap, and purrs the loudest out of any cat I’ve met.

I just don’t know much about cat breeds and was curious about what she was because I hadn’t seen a breed that described her.

Then I figured she was probably a mix and, in the midst of researching, I found this website so, I’d like feedback on what others think she might be! Please leave a comment, thank you.

To who asked what Craigslist is
by: Anonymous

Craigslist is a forum website. People communicate with each other and you can pretty much list whatever you want on the forums. Sadly, sometimes you can find animals there too.

Craiglist
by: Anonymous

Hi from Italy!
What is Craiglist?
My first MC, a silver tabby who lived with me for 18 years did not have MC standards but I am sure she gas because during a TICA show in 1995 the President of American Maine Coon Association confirmed her breed.
Purring regards.

New Adoption From the Animal Shelter:



We adopted George about a week ago. There was just no way we could leave him. He is so sweet and loving. I never thought I'd ever have such a BIG baby. My vet estimated his age at about a year to a year and a half and he's already 15 pounds.
