Cozi Cat

by Victoria
(East Wenatchee WA)

Cozi came to us as a wee kitten 😆 She was a runt.

When she started growing and growing and we noticed her tufted paws were getting bigger and bigger.

She loses a lot of fur in the summer but is a total fur baby in the winter. We believe she’s a calico Maine Coon. What do others think?

Hello,She sure is a big girl! And such pretty colors. She sure looks like a Maine coonie. The way she sleeps on her back is exactly the way my purebred Maine coon Harley Paul sleeps. Enjoy her.

I am so glad you found her. Maine coons are the sweetest cats I have ever had. Much love and happiness to you and Cozi cat!

2 Maybes

by Madeline Watkins

We have 2 maybe-coons. Our first is Coozie the tuxedo who is about 6 years old. She is about 15 lbs, so not exceptionally large.

The newest member of our family is Hash and he is going to his first vet visit tomorrow! He’s maybe 2 months? Both were rescues and are very loved. What do our experts think?

Mister Biscuits

by Nikki
(NY)

Mister is a rescue cat and his paperwork said short haired mixed breed but he is definitely furrier than our other rescue was.

He’s a loving, curious cat. He carries things around in his mouth, greets us at the door, and talks a lot!

Mister loves our cattle dog and they play all day. He hates baths. I’d love to know his breed, any ideas?

Are We Maine Coons ???

by MC siblings
(India)

Hello,
We are brother and sister cats age 3 and half. Our Mom got us from a breeder who was not sure of what we were and thought we were Persian.

We got neutered and spayed at 5 and 6 months and at that time our family had started researching us. We were often sick and never really liked the food we got except boiled tuna.

All this changed when Mommy gave us Royal Canin Maine Coon. We grew suddenly and gained in terms of height and weight. Our illnesses disappeared and we have been enjoying life with our family.

Our paws have long hair in between and ears are tufted. We both have large bodies and full tails. Mom says we are like 2 dogs and she loves us to bits. What are we???

Into The Wild

by Lee Johnson
(Sarasota FL)

We recently adopted a beautiful, supposed to be full Maine Coon from a breeder that was closed down in Virginia. Kittens and cats were sent to different rescues.

Over 200 people sent in applications on 30 cats and kittens sent to our local shelter. We were # 4 on the list.

We were looking to find a Maine Coon for over a year when this occurred. Ta da, here comes Binx the Lynx. She is a beautiful kitten around 8 months old. Marbled color with the biggest lynx tipped ears I've seen.

She has a loving personality, craves attention but she is crazy wild. Not in a feral way though, bouncing off the walls hyper.

And she's fast too! Hopefully she will calm down as she gets older. My other Maine Coon girl did, but we love her.

She practically squeezed through the enclosure she was in to get to us, butting head, rubbing, anything she could do to get to us pet and hold her and I'm a sucker for a pretty face! I think she knew this.

So we will see how life with Binxy goes. No matter the outcome she's my girl for life.

Any advice on intro to other cats is appreciated, so far my other two tolerate her but are not thrilled, and yes we did the normal introduction process.

Thanks

PS Maine Coons have lynx tips on their ears. If that is what he is going by to call Binx a lynx it's not necessarily a good idea.

Half sisters
by: Colleen

We have sister cats. One is VERY Maine coon-ish.

The other looks pretty much like a savannah cat-- they're both tabbies though. We adopted them from a cat foster. They were the runts of a litter of 9, so they went to a foster so that they could get enough food.

It's hard for one momma to feed NINE babies. They're very much a loving, bonded pair and definitely sisters, but Marbles is a long, lean, tall shorthair, while Momo has pretty much every single characteristic of a Maine Coon.

Longhair, stocky, tufted ears and feet, huge paws, oblique eyes, looooong and floofy tail, social, playful, cuddly, loves water, chirps... I suspect, due to the size of the litter and the wildly different gene expression, they likely had 2 fathers-- which, for those who may not know, is a thing that happens with cats.

Maine Coon? Or not? - Jazzy

When adopted her, they labeled as longhaired Tortie. Such a switch and really caring for a cat. Her hair is not like the typical cat. Very human hair like, I would say. Oh I totally forgot. This beautiful girl name is Jazzy.

No-No and Bon-Bon Cajun Coonies

by Tina Winters
(Cajun country, Louisiana )

Cajun Coonies?

Cajun Coonies?

No-No (tiger color) and Bon-Bon(solid black) are brothers! They are around 6-7 months old. Their mother was hit by a car.

I was behind the vehicle that hit their mother. It was a very HOT day in Louisiana Cajun country so when I saw them I stopped.

They were so little, the moment they saw me and looked in my eyes I became Momma! I don’t know if they have any Maine Coon in them or not. I have had many cats but I haven’t had any that are as loving and take every step that I do.

They love to play with the water in the big claw bathtub and they are very talkative and I have never heard any cat talk the way they do.

You can tell when they’re upset with each other because they start fussing! Several people have said that they think they might be part Maine Coon!

My favorite thing about Bon-Bon is he makes “Biscuits” every night when I get in bed. My favorite thing about No-No is he wants to “hold hands” when I get in bed.

They are both momma’s baby boys! I would love to hear what you think about my boys and if they could be part Maine Coon!

I would love to tell you the story about how they got their names because that’s not the names they were given at first!

M on forehead
by: Anonymous

Just because it has a M on their forehead doesn't mean it's a Maine Coon.
Tabbie markings/colored cats have a M on their foreheads.
So that's a marking on a lot of different breeds of cats.

Are they Maine Coons
by: Cindie. US Virgin Islands

It would help if you could send pictures of their faces. I have been told a Full bred Maine Coon has tuffs on their ears and an M on their forehead.
From seeing the tails they sure look part Coon. The way they act sounds like them too. I have two full bred Coons and I love them dearly.. They follow me around the house. Sit on the desk when I take my French lessons. With two on the desk there is not much room for me and my computer but they insist on learning French as we are getting ready to sell our house and move to France.

I tried to post a picture of mine but it wouldn't let me. I will try on another page..

They are both adorable and would love to hear the story of their names...

Juniper!

(Mayville MI)


I went to the vet and they originally had her as domestic medium hair and once the vet saw her she said she has some Maine Coon in her because of the ear tuffs and the hair at the paw site.

Junie was the runt of the litter so she’s smaller than her sisters but very beautiful.

Is Chubbs a Maine Coon Mix?

by Tj


Our male kitten, Biggerton Chubberton, or "Chubbs" for short, is a tuxedo kitten we ended up getting from our cat Harlow, who is a younger than a year old who gave birth to him and four others.

Chubbs is different from his siblings. He is bigger boned and larger in size, different fluffier fur texture, fluffier tail, and those signature ear tuffs.

He has greyish blue eyes and has polydactyly (extra toes). We do not know who the father is, Harlow came to us as a stray and we took her in our home where she gave birth a couple months after we took her in, so we have no idea who the father might be. This is a picture of him.

Maybe Maine Coon?

(Avon Lake, OH, USA)

Given to us as a baby that showed up on a farm. Personality reminds me a bunch of Maine Coon



He is 3 now and is the lead of my pack. Big ol paws, a bushy tail, a mane and that distinguished face when he flattens his ears.

He acts like a dog, ears like a grown man. I had a purebred MC group on FaceBook belittle me harshly for sharing his pic and stated Maine Coon mixes are IMPOSSIBLE.

Even if he isn't he's my best boy.

why are Maine coon mixes impossible???
by: Anonymous

Your kitty looks part Maine coon to me. The person who thought Maine coon mixes are "impossible" obviously does not understand basic biology.

That would be like saying that mixed-breed dogs are impossible, or that inter-racial humans are impossible, ha! And both dogs and cats can have more than one father to a litter.

Is Dusty a Maine Coon?

by Aileen
(Nèw Jeesey)

My 4 month old rescue, Dusty has tufts coming out of his ears and tufts on the bottom of his feet. His silky soft fur is medium length.

He also has a very majestic tail. He's very vocal and during the first week he's been with me he started to fetch his toys and bring them back to me.

He is very active yet also cuddles. He seems like he has a lot of characteristics of a Maine Coon cat.

Ruby is 6 years old and looked like Maine Coon, but her temperament seems different than the others from what I have read.

Also, she has a sister who looks like Russian Blue. I don’t know what their birth mother looks like.

Ruby weighs about 11 lbs. Her personality is hyper, she is scared of being around new people and children until she gets to know them better, she doesn’t sleep near me, and she doesn’t seem calm when people try to pet her.

He loves stranger's attention so much

by Millot
(Canada)

Smooth

Smooth

This is Lupin. He's almost 2 years old and we adopted him as a kitten from a shelter.

He has one of the softest furs I've ever seen. He's a big boy (probably currently around 15 lb, but I have no scale to check) and people comment on his size when seeing him.

When he saw the vet at 3 months old, he told me that Lupin would grow to become a large cat. He has tufted ears, but no mane, but that doesn't keep him from shedding a second cat out of his fur this summer.

He also has a distinctive way of moving his tail in a long slow swirl.

As for his personality, he's not particularly cuddly, but really sweet and social, always seeking our presence.

He likes to follow us around and will usually hang out in the same room as us.

As soon as he hears someone at the door, he runs towards it and will welcome whoever it is, whether or not he knows them, by rubbing against their legs until he gets the attention he wants.

He enjoys going outside to walk with us with his harness, and likes to be petted by whoever approaches him.

He is also quick to learn multiple tricks, such as "high five", "sit", "spin", but he tends to be lazier about it than my kitten.

He's incredibly curious and will investigate anything new and try to get his nose into anything I'm doing.

I expect he's just a big domestic cat, but I've always wondered if he might have a bit of Maine Coon in him.

Thanks! Him and an orange tabby that we just adopted are my first cats. So I wasn't sure, but saw his feet and ear hair.

It looks like he is getting long hair over his whole body and tail right now. I think they guessed on his age, but he is super skinny.

We are working on getting him back up to a healthy weight and hopefully see him start growing at a good rate.

Is he?
by: Anonymous

He does have some big paws, but 10 week old Maine coons, I feel like are bigger. Does he have a fluffy tail?

And his ears don’t seem like they will get fur on the tips, lots of cats have tuffs in there ears, like long hairs, and Forest cats. You will see if he is one when he grows to adult size.

And maybe a vet or breeder can help you out! He is a very cute kitty, and maybe a Maine coon mix!

Maine coon mix? Maybe!
by: Anonymous

Hello! I feel your little love bug is a maine coon mix! I feel she has the beautiful long haired coat, I couldn’t tell but she also might have the lynx ears!

You will be able to know if she is a Maine coon mix, when she grows. If they get bigger then usually cats would, it has to be a Maine coon, especially if it has lynx ears, fluffy tail, long haired coat, big/long body, and maybe hairs at the end of their paws. Hope this helped!

What a cutie! You have a wonderful looking kitty there! Enjoy him.I almost forgot, the position that he is sleeping in on the brown blanket is exactly how my big boy Maine Coon sleeps. They sleep in unusual places and in the funniest positions too.

This is Carolina Cinnamon - we adopted her last month as a rescue from a high kill shelter, she had been bred (far too young) and got sick, she was about to be euthanized when we found her.

She is about 11 months old. She adjusted to our home in minutes, shows no fear of anything (including our 4 other cats, the vacuum, loud music, or new people) and she has more energy and attitude than any cat I've ever seen.

My understanding....
by: Laurie

Maine coon traits are: ear tufts at top of ears, like a lynx , still a bit young I think.

and also from inside thevears sweeping outwards, which I do see. Long hairs in between their toes, which I can't see because of the picture, long legs, and a very long bushy tail, that I also can't see. Slanted large eyes.

I am not a pro nor a breeder. It is just my opinion that I think your kitten is too young to tell yet. Mine (Aslan) was very tiny when 4 mths. I had my doubts, but then he grew beautifully into his maine coon appearance. He is now 1 year old, 42 inches long and 15.5 lbs. I have no doubt now.

If I can give any advice. Get your kitten used to grooming now and make it habit forming. Good luck. Absolutely adorable!

Maine Coon or not
by: Camille ReHelpMeowt

I believe from the photo that she is part Maine Coon. I do not see the Ear Tuffs and her coat by her chest is full and fluffy. Many Maine Coons don't have that so early on.

I think she is a mix, however if you want to be sure you can ask her for the papers or pedigree. You can also take her, love her and do a DNA test on her. But, if you want to show her or breed her in a Maine Coon show, you will need to be sure.

Don't be shy, ask as many questions as you need along with, asking if she did HCM testing. That has a rate of 30% in Maine Coons that are not tested. Do your homework and ask. Good luck.

Jul 19, 2023
Possibly Part
by: Anonymous

She could be possibly part, where she could also just be domestic long hair. If she's tiny, bond angora parts per Siberian many things.

If the lady is not trying to rip you off on the price and you would pay that for a regular cat not a purebred, get her and love her! If she were pure bred she would have papers.

Stray Kittens


(Chicago)


Part of a litter of four strays that has been hanging around since they were kittens.

Can't be more than 12 months old now. 3 of the 4 are long haired and starting to show manes around their necks. The 4th is a relatively short haired red tabby.

I'm surprised that these long haired cats aren't more scraggly living outdoors like they do.

Happily, they survived our cold Chicago winter! They even seem well fed. They obviously get a lot of attention from the neighborhood.

It's OK If they're not a Maine Coon
by: Anonymous

I agree I think he's a nice big cat.

There are a lot of big cats that have long hair that are not Maine Coons. I have a big red cat that showed up at my back patio and wouldn't leave.

After a few weeks we took him to a Vet, and he had a chip but not registered. So, we kept him & brought him in.

He was cat post trained & boxed trained like the breeder do before the let them go to their new home and has all the other attributes of a Maine Coon & he's like our Main Coon we got from a Breeder, so we are pretty sure he is a Maine Coon, but we don't know for sure.

With out a DNA test but that's OK because he's a great cat 20 plus pounds and he's the reason we bought a Female Maine Coon.

Joey

Well Joey is sooooooo darn cute! I definitely see maine coon in Joey. The tuffs on his ears, his size, and length of his legs are characteristics of maine coons. I'm not an expert but did some research of my own.

Oh Henry!

by Aubrey

This is Henry. He is a rescue. I was told he is part Maine Coon.

After reading the article on characteristics, I'm even more certain! He is the best snuggler, loves belly rubs, comes when I call him, everything listed.

Whether he is or not, he's proving to be a wonderful companion for this almost empty nester!

8oz. Feral Runt to 11 lb. Beauty

by Renee Hoy
(Cleveland)

Day 1 after rescue

Day 1 after rescue

My husband discovered JuVi in the sub basement of an old juvenile jail in Cleveland.

8oz feral filthy helpless baby. And the rest is history. JuVi is the welcoming committee, he loves company, he loves our dogs, he’s also the alpha bathing the other kittens we have rescued.

He’s loves tunnels and toys and long naps. Loves food and snacks.

Never had any cat with eyes this color, they are super pale, silvery grey blue. His hair is short on the shoulders but his body hair is about 3”.

Tail color would challenge any high lighting job done in a salon. Hair on his tail is 4.5” long. We love him !!

what a pretty cat!
by: Janet

He is a such a pretty cat! I have a Maine Coon but I was just reading about Ragdolls. He looks more like a Rag doll maybe and because of the blueish eye color. Sort of reminds me of a Siamese we once had but with long fur. He might be a mix but you have yourself a beautiful cat either way! Sometimes I think God just brings them to us to Love!

Could he be part Ragdoll?

Maxwell...Maine Coon????

by Kathy
(Wisconsin, USA)


I got my furrever buddy from a Humane Society at 6 mos. He's 6 now.

He can be aggressive at times but I just give him a much love as he'll accept.

Wondering if he is a Maine Coon as I had one before him and see similarities. He loves attention, playtime, kisses in bed and follows me room- to- room.

No cuddles or holding allowed but I love him anyway!

Looks Just Like Mine
by: Lee in Michigan

Beautiful cat, looks just like my Makita. Iam sure he has a special personality and bring you much happiness.

Yup, you got one!
by: Jody

I think he's one. I had one once and he was not real cuddly either so maybe we just got a mixed breed including MC or they were just quirky.

Maine Coon or not
by: Karen

Yes I vote he’s a Coonie. My Coon always slept with her tail between her legs covering her stomach. I have read that it’s one of the traits. Enjoy, he’s beautiful.

Fluffy Maxwell
by: Lisa

Fluffy Maxwell is a beautiful kitty and you describe a lot of the typical MaineCoon kitty behavior. Is he a big kitty? MaineCoon boys are usually very large cats. No matter what, you are so lucky to be his Mom!

Yes!
by: Patsy’s Mom

From what I can see I’d say this beautiful kitty is a Maine Coon. I go by furry feet and ears as well as lots of fur generally. Can’t tell if he has a big furry bib or not. My Maine Coon doesn’t like to be held either instead she leans against me like I’m the arm of a sofa. She follows me and wants lots of affection like your.

6 weeks old

6 weeks old

She was a stray momma’s baby and we adopted her when she was 6weeks.

Now she is 6 months and 8.2 lbs. Hardly ever meows but trills and purrs a lot. Loves to play and runs around wagging her tail. Loves to play with water too.

My thoughts on Brooklyn
by: Anonymous

It sounds like by her very social personality she could be part Maine Coon but Manx cats also are super social but may not meow. Regardless she sounds wonderful!

Adorable Main Coon Mix rescue.

by Paula Harrigan
(Snohomish Wa USA)

Oliver was rescued from Paws Animal Shelter. He was caked with cement and he had to have a toe amputated and his fur shaved.

He was a scrawny 2 year old that had been living as a stray. I adopted him and never dreamed he would turn into such a handsome guy.

No one at the shelter identified him as a Maine Coon or part Maine Coon. He now weighs 19 pounds and has a beautiful coat. He is lovable and playful!

I have attached a picture from the day I brought him home as well as recent pictures.

Maine Coon Mix Maybe?

by Dean Anderson
(Viola Illinois USA)

Photo from his adoption day

Photo from his adoption day

I just adopted my 12-week-old little boy Elmer from a no-kill shelter. Somebody surrendered him at 5 weeks old.

I found him accidentally the day he became available to adopt, and all the shelter workers were all talking about his personality.

He is very laid-back loves his tummy rubbed and is bigger than other kittens at the shelter that are the same age.

He has big furry Paws and fury tuffs in his ears similar to a Maine Coon. The ladies at the shelter believe he has some Maine Coon in him because he is so docile, loves to be around people and just seems like a very happy kitten.

My last kitten was a tortoise shell female cat. She was the exact opposite of all of these traits, so I was online researching and found this website.

I thought I would see what you guys think. Either way, if he is or isn't, he still going to have a wonderful life in his new home with me.

Mixes and Maybes 2023

Milo

Milo

Milo Jasper Bialowas


Alexis Smith
Tallahassee, FL


So his mom was a stray living outside our house and we took her in and she had 5 kittens.

We gave them all away to good homes but I kept Milo aka Chonk as we called him bc he was the biggest and ate the most.

He is the only one that looks like this though. They all has different looks and colorings. He is a year and a half old. His bday is June 14th.

Everyone thinks he is a Maine Coon but I’m just not 100% convinced yet. I think he could potentially be a Coon-Somali mix. What do y’all think?
