He is a very cute and BIG domestic short hair... I can not see Maine Coon in him... I might be wrong though - let's see what the others say!
I hope you stick around - there is tons to learn here! Welcome to TCS!

Im glad i came by this site, he is my baby i love him. Hes like my fiances child they have an awesome bond, which is weird cause he does care much for animals.

But i just thought that maybe he had some kind of other cat in him cause he just had some features that i didnt think tabbys had.

Tabby is a pattern, not a breed. Your BIG kitty has tabby stripes. The breed would be domestic shorthair (AKA no specific breed or heinz 57 variety). Love the picture of him helping with the cooking.

That's what I thought for the longest time too! Just to make it clearer, tabby is a coat pattern that can exist in many different breeds. Your neighbour's kitty is a tabby (pattern) Maine Coon (breed). Someone please correct me and knock me on the head if I just got that last sentence wrong.

Your big boy is absolutely gorgeous. I just love tabbies What is his name, by the way?

He certainly is a handsome guy.
I had a big red tabby that looked like him, a large DSH, but my vet swore he had some MC in him. I really could not see it, except he was 22 lbs and had a head like a softball.
