We adopted our cat Leo over a year ago as a scrawny kitten, but only found out the Nebelung breed a few months ago. From what I have learned, Leo's silver grey coat color (medium length), plume-like tail, hind-leg pantaloons and purple paw pads, as well as mild laid back personality, seem to match the Nebelung breed. However, he is also quite large and has some traits of a Maine Coon. Any insight judging from the posted pitcures will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!
