How Do You Tell If You Have A Maine Coon?

We adopted a long-haired cat from the SPCA in December of last year. The shelter couldn't give any information on her. Everything I've read about Maine coon cats is exactly like her, both looks and temperament. Is there any definitive way of knowing if a cat is a Maine coon? Is anyone an expert in that? ... pg&.src=ph

There really is no way of knowing since you don't have any papers or have her history. How about posting a picture?

(P.S. I'm not an expert, but I'll be getting my first Maine Coon in about 2 weeks, so I've been doing a lot of reading too).
