Default Do I have a Maine Coon?

Can anyone tell me if this is a Main Coon kitten?



Thanks for any info, I've been researching it some online, I've seen other posts about this, but I thought I would try to ask someone who really knows the breed.

Hi there! I have a Maine Coon and although I'm not a breeder I must say your little one certainly looks like a MC - the tufts on the ear tips are always a good sign, they are classic Maine Coon They also have paw fur and longer fur on the chest and belly than on the neck and a huge great feathery tail - but yours may a little young to be exhibiting the tail just yet!

Thanks, yah, he's got a lot of the 'classic' main coon traits. I think he is a little young to see a big bushy tail... he's 12 weeks.

Thank you everyone. Yes, he's a charmer alright! Right now his name is Bolton, which is the name the rescue place has given him... I'm still thinking of the perfect one!

There's no doubt, you are owned by a MC. Concats, stunning kit!

Does he have tufts of fur between his pads? Also does he make a chirp like noise? His tail should also be about the same length as his body and his fur should be of different lengths on his body.

Here is a detailed description http://www.cfainc.org/breeds/standards/maine.pdf

Here is a more simple one that will do just fine too
MAINE COON CAT

I also have a Maine Coon
It's hard to tell a pure breed from a mix without a pedigree though. I have a friend who has a Maine Coon that is a mix, he still looks just like a Maine Coon.

Anyway, he is surely a beautiful boy! How did you get him?
