The majority of cats rescued from shelters, the street, as strays, ferals, etc. are Domestics - meaning they are mix breeds.
The term for this is Domestic, with shorthaired cats being called Domestic Shorthair and Longhair cats being Domestic Longhair.
Domestic Longhair (DLH for short) can have thick hair between the feet, ear tufts, etc. It is highly unlikely a rescued kitten would be Maine Coon or Norwegian Forest.
Cat breeds like Norwegian Forests are rare, and you won't find them in shelters, especially when they are rescued from elsewhere.
