A lot of domestic cats have some Persian somewhere in their ancestry, as Persians have been around for a very long time. Depending on where you live, there may be a statistically greater chance of Persian ancestry than Maine Coon, simply because there were more of them around.
While modern Persians have a very distinct head, if you look at very old pictures of show champions, they don't look a lot different to the picture on page one of this thread. So, I'm going to go with "Persian mix" as a very likely possibility. It might be many generations back, but as long as both parents were carrying that recessive longhair gene, it will come out.

For some reason I can't see any pictures in this thread. But it sounds you have given the kitty a home that's safe and loving!!
Don't worry, it's not on your end!:p
The pictures have disappeared!:eek:
They might have been moved, or they were to big...

That must be it, all I deleted were the huge quotes.
