She is very striking, such a pretty girl! Here’s more pics of her :) View attachment 391999
Maine Coon but depending on other traits looks more like Maine Coon Bob Cat mix. Shorter hair and is tail about at long as body and how heavy long is this cat? Age tells us a lot.... remember Maine Coon are easy to genetically test for as they have a unique gene that says they're Maine Coon as a Natural Breed... not a prescribed breed w/ specific traits bred in!

Bobcats aren't interfertile with domestic cats (all supposed bobcat mixes who have been tested show no bobcat DNA), and I really doubt a farm cat would come into contact with any other kind of wildcat. So probably not. She does have a really striking appearance though, she really hit the jackpot in the looks department!
Fact: Maine Coon Bobcat if not a Breeder produced animal, can also occur in the wild. This could be why this cat might have shorter hair... yet markings show more of a Bobcat. Maine Coons have a specific gene identifier as a naturally developed breed that dominates of other breeds!
