Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

He has similarities with his coat and tail, and characteristics of being very dog like and fascinated by water... it is hard to tell since we found him on the side of the road but everyday he gets more and more fluffy and looks like a siberian. Anyone know how I would be able to find out what mix he is? Thanks!

    a very quick tell is their vocalisations! even the cross breeds tend to coo and churp also they growl like dogs! the cooing makes them sound like they were raised in a pigeon loft and they got confused lol. also does she have any tufted for on the underside of her paws? thats their snow shows as far as i know other breeds dont have this. she cerainly looks part maine coon but even if she isnt shes a beautiful cat. I wouldnt trade my little girl for the world but sometimes the size can be a problem especialy when she wants up and my back is gone lol!!! they can have breed specific problems but hopefully with a crossed breed this wont be as much of a problem. suggest you find a vet with a feline speciality they will be able to check her over properly and let you know the real story. it still suprises me the amount of general vets out their who dont know what a main coon is let alone the breed problems. good luck and enjoy your baby shes a beauty.
