What is my cat?

Hi everyone! Lately I've been wondering what breed my cat is. I rescued him years ago and never knew what he was and thought maybe some of you smart cat people might have some ideas?

He's somewhat large, maybe around 18 lbs. But he doesn't feel fat when you feel through all his fur (or when he's wet). He's very mellow and REALLY friendly and cuddly. I added photos of him with my 70 lb black lab if that helps you get an idea of his size.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Unless he's got official papers to prove it, most folks would say he's a DLH (domestic long hair) with a gorgeous coat and loving personality! A kitty's look can draw you in, but it will only be temporary if he's got a difficult personality. In your case, you're quite blessed with an absolute gorgeous looking fellow with an awesome cuddly, sweet character who also loves doggies! How can you go wrong with that? Purebreds are cool too, but there can be some caveats like certain health problems they are more prone to.

Another plus is that you feel great knowing you saved his life!

Yes, I am very glad I have such a sweetheart! But to be totally honest, he doesn't ALWAYS get along with dogs. When my boyfriend's Shepard puppy comes to visit, KitKat doesn't put up with his craziness! I've seen him chase the pup out of the house several times! Usually after the puppy pokes the cat a billion times trying to get him to play. You can see in the 4th picture of my cat getting peeved at the pup. Hehe!

The only reason I've been wondering what my cat is is because people always ask. They're amazed at his size. I assume he would be mixed, but he kinda reminds me of a grey and white maine coon.

Gorgeous boy!! I had a giant DLH years ago, he was a stray rescue. I believed had may have had some maine coon in him due to his head structure, temperament, and size. Really wish I could gave seen his daddy!!
Either way your cat is soooo pretty!!

Coincidence? I think not.

Looks like you may have a Norwegian Forest Cat look a like.
