I have a buff/cream tabby kitten from the SPCA who is approximately 4 months old. The personality traits of the Norwegian Forest Cats and Maine Coons that I'm finding online seem almost identical to me, lol! He has the long ear hair of both of them (which led me to them and others in the first place as guesses for his breed). He is strong and curious, good with my dog, tolerant, and highly adaptable. He's already mastered "Out" and "Here, Trip!" (and this is at the meager age of 4 months, of which I've had him for 2). He'll try anything once, even non-cat usuals, including bread, applesauce, and green beans (and has decided to continue with the bread). He'll even gnaw on the dog's bones and sticks, which is entirely adorable. Chicken, turkey, shellfish, white fish, hamburger, and pork are all seemingly delicious. He is growing very quickly in both size and weight, so I'd wager he'll be a large and sturdy cat. When I adopted him he was smaller than my dog's head, and covered in about 5-6 dozen fleas. Terrible that the SPCA would allow so many fleas on an adoptee, and not even warn potential owners! (I found out 3 days later when giving him a bath and noticing that all his "dirt" suddenly started moving!).
