I have a black and white male cat that has all of the marking now of a Maine Coon. When I first adopted him and his sister at 5 weeks they just looked like regular kittens.

I started to notice something was different about Bandit at about 4 months. His tail was getting fluffy and had long hair growing out of his ears. He looked like Yoda.

At six months he was over 8 lbs. with long silky hair and a huge plume like tail. His sister was petite and not at all like her brother.

Bandit is now 9 months old and weighs 12 lbs. His sister also has silky long hair but her tail is not as bushy and she is still petite.

I have no idea how big Bandit will get but I will keep you informed of his growth over time.


Hi Kara.... if you can take a photo of Bandit that would be great.

You can then email me the photo and I'll upload it for you:

If he is a Maine Coon he will have webbed feet. I didn't know this until one day I was playing with my Maine Coon kittens feet and noticed they were webbed. It surprised me so I did a little research and discovered that this is common in Maine Coons.

Scott,
We are not sure what type of cat bandit is but we think he is a Maine Coon or a Norwegian Forest Cat. He is a big sweet fluffy baby! Thanks for looking at him ~ Kara

Hi Kara. He has a funny, cheekish pattern so Bandit seems a fitting name. This is meant in a nice way - actually my own cat is also a funny looking creature. I'm sure your giant is a good, loveable cat nonetheless. 😉
