He has similarities with his coat and tail, and characteristics of being very dog like and fascinated by water... it is hard to tell since we found him on the side of the road but everyday he gets more and more fluffy and looks like a siberian. Anyone know how I would be able to find out what mix he is? Thanks!

a very quick tell is their vocalisations! even the cross breeds tend to coo and churp also they growl like dogs! the cooing makes them sound like they were raised in a pigeon loft and they got confused lol. also does she have any tufted for on the underside of her paws? thats their snow shows as far as i know other breeds dont have this. she cerainly looks part maine coon but even if she isnt shes a beautiful cat. I wouldnt trade my little girl for the world but sometimes the size can be a problem especialy when she wants up and my back is gone lol!!! they can have breed specific problems but hopefully with a crossed breed this wont be as much of a problem. suggest you find a vet with a feline speciality they will be able to check her over properly and let you know the real story. it still suprises me the amount of general vets out their who dont know what a main coon is let alone the breed problems. good luck and enjoy your baby shes a beauty.
