    Oh! That was a gorgious one!

    so she is in pattern a calico and tabby at the same time. Some will call it for caliby, others say patched tabby.

    Breed seems to be a medium haired domestic, DMH.

    the great majority of cats counts as domestics, not belonging to any particular breed. But some are more or less good look alikes to some recognized breed. And its of course a nice pastime to speculate what they are look alike to. :)

    I, for taking just one example, Im a good look alike to Super Mario. Thereby not saying Im SuperMario for real, even if I was sometimes fondly called for him.

    Is she biggish?

    I would describe your cat as a brown patched tabby and white domestic longhair. She is very pretty!

    If she is very big, visibly bigger than most other cats, even males, she may have some big boned breed behind her. The statistics would favor a Maine coon parentage. Even if its not shrieking Maine coon look alike above her.

    Thinking on, of the three big breeds, she reminds most of Siberians, with her rounded jaw line.
    Even if statistically speaking, if you are living in North America, its Maine coon whom is the mostly probable Ancestor.

    Theoretically, the genes in the genepool of the domestics will fall out and recombine differently, and thus, some will be petite females, some will be huge females, and most somewhere inbetween...

    Some cats are just big and it has nothing to do with Maine Coons or any other breed. My mother had a huge cat over 30 lbs in the early 1960s... the cat was a shorthair, there were almost no Maine Coons being bred at that time, and the few Maine Coons that did exist in the 1960s were were moderate in size, not huge.

    If we are talking about statistics, purebred ancestry is very unlikely for any cat of unknown parentage, no matter how big the cat is.
