This here is my cat, BB. I found him when I was 8 years old while hiking through a Blue Mountain, PA campground; he was just a little kitten, only a couple weeks old and all alone to the best of my family's knowledge. We weren't sure what happened to him, but we noticed that he walked a little funny and he seemed to be rather slow and clumsy for a cat, so we brought him home. He's been my buddy since; he's now 12 years old, and he's really warmed up to my family as he's gotten older (he used to spend most of his time outside, but the last few years he's spent a little less time out and about).
I've always been curious what kind of cat he is; he has a thick, dense coat, medium-to-long hair, white socks that are particularly long in the back, and a gray and black striped tail. I'm supposing he is a Maine Coon of some form, but I admit I don't have any kind of expertise in cat identification lol please, I'd appreciate anyone's input. Thanks!
