Is our adopted cat Turbo a Maine Coon?

I adopted Turbo from a colleague who immigrated to the UK. He is just such a joy (it's 2 months now). He is the biggest cat that I have ever seen and he is so dog-like as well. We actual call him a "cog" as he's a mixture between a cat and a dog. My colleague said that he was very independent and not really an affectionate cat, but we experience differently. He follows me from room to room and loves to cuddle with us.
He sleeps on our bed most nights and is always rubbing up against our legs and purring. He also loves his scratching post and likes jumping for rope or a feather duster. He also loves talking to us, even if he has eaten and has enough food and water in his bowls.
We are so happy that we have him in our lives...
