(Thorn Hill, TN)
"Buddy" was dumped on us and when I first held him he was so small he fit in the palm of my hand. Two days later I saw a HUGE cat on our porch outside, the biggest, bushiest Maine Coon I had ever seen, almost totally feral.
After awhile I noticed that the kitten favored that cat, A LOT, and deduced that the huge creature outside was the father.
Well our little guy grew up to look just like him, except maybe not as big although he IS quite large. Had him so far for nine years and loved every minute of it!
