      well i felt his tail.. very thick and long.. our other cats tails are only about 3/4 as long and they are adults.
      it also appears his "mane" or bushy neck may have been trimmed at the shelter.. perhaps due to matting etc. we'll see as he gets older i guess.
      he acts like a maine coon.. following you around meowing and always wants to be on your lap.
      either way we love him the same

      Ah, my roomy Miss Molly is much the same: heart-shaped main, thick tail and fur, etc, but if you pick her up you`ll find a tiny little kitty inside all that fur. Still she`s a little sweetheart,..

      I wish they could stay this tiny forever! They are so adorable.

      He is growing so fast! When I took him home about a month ago I could hold him in the palm of my hand, now I would say his body length has grown an inch in that month!

      I think Most tabby cats have the 'M' (or sometimes it's a 'w')

      Quote, originally posted by about.com »
      Probably the most distinctive feature seen in common on all tabby cats is the "M" on their foreheads. You will also see this M on many of the big jungle cats, such as tigers, cheetahs, and ocelots.
      From the ancient Egyptian days came the first legend about this unique marking. Cats were called Mau, most likely a reflection of their conversational sound. The word Mau also translated to seeing, or light. Since cats' eyes appear so luminous at night, it was only a couple of steps further to associate these glorious animals with the moon, and their marking to reflect that relationship. The Egyptian Mau is a direct descendant of those ancient Egyptian cats; domesticated as an offspring of the African Wild Cat, it carries the M to this day.
      The Tabby in the Manger
      Another wonderful legend about the origin of the "M" tells about Mary and the tabby cat in the manger. It seems that the baby Jesus was cold and fussing, and Mary asked the manger animals to move in closer to warm him. The manger was simply too small to accomplish that, but a little tabby cat came in and nestled next to the baby, and cosseted Him with purring and warmth. Mary was so grateful, she bestowed her own initial, "M" on the cat's forehead.
      Mohammed and the Tabby
      Islam legend tells us that Mohammed loved cats. One story says that he once cut off a sleeve of a garment when he had to leave to attend prayer, rather than to disturb his cat, Muezza, who was sleeping upon the sleeve. It is said that the reason he loved cats so much is that one once saved his life when a snake crawled into his sleeve. (This may be a variation of the well-known Muezza story.) Legend also claims that Mohammed bestowed on cats the ability to always land on their feet. A writing of Mohammed tells about his vision of a woman punished in Hell for starving her cat to death. These stories have all come down to the assumption that the "M" symbolizes the enormous esteem which Mohammed felt for cats and that the sight of the "M" on a cat's forehead invokes memories of Mohammed. In any case, cats today are still generally protected and respected in the Islamic world, and are even permitted inside mosques

      I wonder if everyone in the Pets forum has at least one pet named after something automotive?

      LOL, I'm sure. With the exception of my dog who was named before I got him, all my animals have been named after automotive companies. Garrett, Tomei, GReddy, Koni, and Tein.

      my other two do, Kisa (Russian name translated means Kitty, since she is a wannabe Russian Blue) and Seamus. I was thinking maybe Zasta or Dneper for Kisa...but, loved the name Kisa after I found out about it. Seamus got his name, because we had a family cat that looked like him when I was younger with an Irish name. He's sleeping on my shoulder as I type this....such an adorable little guy!
