I don't know, she does have an incredible ruff around her neck and she is getting more long haired all the time. She is one years old in July. She has quite big paws and bigger legs in comparison to my ginger cat. Her mother was similar but with longer legs. Her father was unknown!

I don’t see any evidence of MC in her conformation, though she’s gorgeous, regardless :> Mixes and “part x breed”aren’t really a thing in cats. Unlike dogs, only around 2% of cats will be pedigree, and little more have any significant breed ancestry, as designer breeds aren’t really popular in cats, as compared to dogs. As such, most cats are just cats, though that doesn’t make them any less special. BYBs will either breed non-pedigree cats they claim to be a breed, or irresponsibly breed pedigree animals, as there’s generally not much money in purposefully creating feline crossbreeds.

It’s common to see some basic features in random-bred DLHs, especially in those of USA origin, as MCs were developed from New England’s landrace of cats. Thick ruffs, furnishings, lynx tips, and fluffy paws are common features in longhairs, in general, especially in random bred cats of colder climates :>

As big as she is, and with that gorgeous tail and bigger bone structure, she could have some Maine Coon in her ancestral background. She is gorgeous!

Hmm I might guess some Ragdoll if she is larger than average.
I think people underestimate how many pedigree cats have entered the regular gene pool. Ragdolls are popular at the moment and I see more Ragdoll in her features than Maine Coon.
But long haired cats in the west have a common origin of cats from what is now Turkey, Iran and nearby areas.

the breed codes are actually TUA and RAG, easy to get confused when the information is incorrect :)

Spot is lovely but doesn’t resemble either breed.
I wasnt using “ breed codes” so the information is not incorrect, lol. I was using my own abbreviation for turkish angora t a and ragdoll ra so I didn't have to type out the whole names.
