Re: what breed ? pls help

Welcome to Cat Forum.
First, without registration papers there is no way to tell (unless obvious genetic traits are visible) what
breed a cat is. In general, your kitty would be classified as a DLH (domestic long hair). I am guessing
this, based on the length of her ear-hair, I think she will have long hair instead of medium length hair.
Genetically, your kitty would be described as a "Tortoiseshell Tabby" (or called a Torbie, tortoiseshell + tabby
= torbie
), which means she is a female that carries both black and orange for color and she has agouti, which
means her tabby stripes are readily visible. Her tabby pattern appears to be Mackerel Stripes.

A Tortoiseshell (or called a Tortie) is a black and orange female cat who has no agouti gene, so her tabby stripes
are not visible in her black fur, though they could show up in her orange areas of fur.

I think she is beautiful.

I see some Maine Coon, but that's probably because I love them.

Your kitty is adorable!

Ah, yes...
If you send her to me, I will do a thorough genetic workup, free of charge. However, the completion of such a thorough analysis may take 12 to 18 years. just kidding
She is absolutely Adorable! I think I see ear tufts like a Norwegian Forest Cat has. And I love her beautiful, long ruff.

The "M" is a tabby coat pattern indicator, it does not indicate the Maine Coon breed (although Maine Coons usually have one because their coat are typically a visible tabby pattern).
