A Helmi Flick cat photograph.
I don’t know anything about this superb cat other what I see and what I see is the startled expression on the face of a female brown tabby Maine Coon cat with the best lynx tipped ears that I have seen on a Maine Coon and which approach the lynx tips of the cat with the world’s best: the wild cat species called the caracal.
I have said that Lacey is a female Maine Coon. She looks like a lady. But I can get that wrong sometimes and “Lacey” is a girl’s and a boy’s name I am informed.
If I have made a mistake about Lacey – sorry.
I love the wide-eyed look on her face. She is a brown tabby and white, in fact. Brown tabby and white Maine Coons are very attractive. I think this coat type suits a Maine Coon because it is natural and the Maine Coon really should look natural as the breed comes from farm stock of Maine, USA in the time before the 19th century.
To me, Lacey ticks all the boxes. I’d love to have her as my companion. A lot of people search for information which might help them work out what breed their cat is. Most often a person’s cat will be a random bred cat. However, the Maine Coon cat, as is demonstrated by Lacey, has a very particular appearance. The face is well proportioned with a strong, squarish muzzle and the body is long and large supported by long legs with a plumed tail attached. You’ll know if you have a purebred Maine Coon.
There are lots of Maine Coon mixes on the internet which surprises me. Who would allow their purebred Maine Coon to breed with a random bred cat? Maybe someone can answer that for me.
