The Mythology of Purr-C-Us

What Am I?!

Tethys Fluffkins mentioned that I might just be a Norwegian Forest Cat rather than a Maine Coon! I told my parents, and they've been reading and reading and looking at me all funny... I thought about it too, and decided that it's best to ask actual experts on the subject of cats: CATS! So what do you think?! What AM I?!

ps-- to help decide, I'm posting a picture of another kitty found in the same parking lot as me... We're pretty obviously biological brothers. But according to the humans, he's now my cousin!

I don't know, 'cause we look a bit alike and my humans have wondered that about me too. These two breeds are so similar. Plus when we're rescued off the streets, who knows what other breeds we have mixed in. Some of my siblings were short-haired. My mom's going with Maine Coon because of my tiny kitten voice and stocky, square-ish body...but I could be either.

Well, your cousin/brother looks so much like Toffy, don't you think? I think you look like a NFC. Look at this link and go toward the bottom to see the NFC from Florida - looks like you!

Do you have tufts of hair between your toes? I see the tufts in your ears, and NFC have them in their ears and between their toes!

Ooooh, I found something you might want to check out. It is a comparison between the NFC and the Maine Coon!

Scroll down to see the chart - this might help figure out what you are!

Ooooow, thanks Samoa!!! And Fiona- I KNOW! Mom and Dad are sure having fun looking at me, though!

And yes, I have major fuzz between my toes. And a noticeable undercoat, even in this summer heat... I'm going to call my brother (he's a few years older, and nearer to full grown!) and check Mom's comparison findings to him!
