Big fluffy DNA strand

Suddenly, Robin's Maine Coon features and characteristics are beginning to show. A LOT.

In the last 6 months he's gone through a growth spurt, he's now longer than a lot of small dogs. His fur is growing thicker. And... he's gradually packing on the pounds.

Now the coon tail, I don't mind. But I miss my lean, rockin' Robin! My hi-en cat, who watched his food intake, and played all the time. Is there anything I can do? Or is this genetics?

Genetics, and Robin will continue to grow and fill out until he's four years old....Maine Coons are slow maturing and can be 20+ lbs. at maturity without being pudgy. And yes he will have a very beautiful plummy tail.
