Feral Bengal Maine Coon Mix

by Jack
(Douglas, Alaska)

My Daughter in Florida has a Maine Coon-Bengal mix cat. I understand from the animal shelter that he is the product of captured feral cats. He was a nightmare for the first year of his life, but settled down to be a real sweetheart. Indie topped out at about 25 pounds.

He was raised around a wide variety of large dogs, including a white, and deaf, Great Dane; a collection of Dobermans and a very large German Shepherd.

From all the breed descriptions, Indie had the absolute best of both breeds. He has a face like a bobcat, a dark marbled coat…very elegant paws, with the build of a classic Maine coon.

His temperament developed into a no nonsense, very smart cat. Unfortunately, I do not have a picture. Perhaps someone should consider a new, and very elegant breed of cat. I live on a boat in Southeast Alaska, and I think that combination would make an excellent boat cat.
