Sammie - Maine Coon Mix or Not
3 Months Old
Sammie is 6 month old female we adopted at a shelter when she was 3 months old.
She now weighs between 8 & 9 pounds and measures approximately 30-31 inches. Do you think she could be a Maine Coon or a mix?
Attached are a mix of pics when she was 3 Months Old and some more recent pics.

Thank you for your comments on Miss. Sammie. I asked the vet if she had a lil coon in her and he said no. She is too small. I disagree. She has the personality of the beautiful breed.
We say she is a lover not a fighter =) We call her Phoof also because her hair is 4-5 inches long...which I am trimming this year...she gets hot and she falls over trying to lick her chest lol Thanks again!Beautiful Pet
She is just stunning! Congratulations. She looks pure bred to me, it's difficult to see her ear tufts, and they may not be fully in until she matures. She's beautiful, I had a Maine Coon for 20 years. He was wonderful.
They're my favorite breed. Good luck with her, you're very lucky.Forgot to Mention
The set of her ears looks definitely Maine Coon-ish too.Intriguing Markings
She does have much of the Maine Coon about her--note the eyes and the muzzle. More interestingly, she has a very unusual distribution of white and tabby in her coat.Sammie's Mom
Thank you for all you comments!
She loves to rub her nose against ours.
Also she loves the top of her head scratched her ears go flat to her head.
She is a climber, but not on us lol on the shower curtain, window screens, curtains and of course the couch. She can already jump to the top of counters and stretch to edge of them too.Maine Coone probably
The feet definitely look like a female coon feetsies, bigger than normal but not as big as the males.
Does she like to jump up to your shoulder and sit and put those whiskers under and in your nose and ears yet? Give it time, they inherit that trait. Shes cute!sammie
Oh yes. I have a Sammy-cat, too. Your girl is BIG for a kitten. The look on her face/fluffiness and her big tootsies says it all. Enjoy! :)
