We adopted Boo about 2 years ago from the humane society. She was short haired with 3 inch long, 2 inch wide whitish tufts at the base of her ears @ 4 months age. She was black and white, like a tuxedo. Today, the tufts are lost in her body for which has grown to match the length of the tufts. She has tufted paws and is getting a scarf/mane around her neck. She has soft rabbit like fur that rivals our Ragdoll in softness. She weighs a good 13 pounds & is a huge love bug.

Guys, none of these cats are Maine Coon mixes or purebred or anything. They are just domestic longhairs with really cool and unique characteristics. Those are all traits that come up in the entire domestic cat population. The vast majority of the cats in the world are Domestic long or short hairs, produced over dozens of generations of domestics mating with domestics, a very small percentage are purebred or even mixed breed (ie. Maine Coon mix) and typically come from a breeder unless a very rare case. These are all gorgeous cats with cool tufts of fluff but it literally means nothing in trying to determine if they are a purebred or mix of purebred because they just simply aren't.

We agree! Our vet said she was just a cool girl! We call her kitten hood her "rocker-girl" phase.
