    I adopted this cat about a year and a half ago. My vet has him down as a long haired domestic, but adoption papers called him a tabby. For a while I thought he was a samoli, but now that he's almost 2 and fully grown , he's about 20 lbs and is massive .I'm wondering if he is mostly main coon? I mostly want to know for his diet, as the food he gets now has a maincoon formula and I wonder if he would benefit from that .Thanks!

    He’s very cute! I would describe him as a brown tabby Domestic Longhair. Tabby is a coat marking, not a breed in itself.

    I would call him a domestic long hair. He doesn't have the facial structure of a Maine Coon. Also most people who have pure bred Maine Coons are required to have them fixed by the breeder. There's not a lot of accidental breeding. Many people call any big cat Maine Coons, but they're usually not.

    I'm not really seeing Maine Coon or any specific breed, just a big domestic long haired cat (most cats are not any specific breed just domestic cats). As for food, breed doesn't really matter, all cats need a high protein low carb diet. Also ideally wet food only, especially for a male since they are more likely to get urinary issues.

    Now he has some looks of Maine Coon. No longer any Somali look alike. :)

    This is really helpful thanks! Do you have suggestions for wet food options?
