I too have a Maine Coon...although they might look pretty much like regular cats, there is something quite specific about them facially, and you gottit.

Very, very nicely done! Beautiful markings and that subtle background is a thing of beauty and sets the cat off marvellously!

Irma, I love this cat! You captured the texture of his fur so well I feel as if I could reach through the screen to scritch him. Great proportions! His wide masculine cheek fluffs, thick Maine Coon fur, gorgeous ruff, beautiful eyes, everything about him is so wonderful. His expression is sweet, a bit friendly and curious. I love the way he's a little bit tousled, long hair like his can get disarranged and that gives him a charming, natural look - as if he's just woken up or finished playing, hasn't groomed himself yet or been brushed to look all cat-show sleek. Just-right - tousled but not ill-kempt, obviously he's loved and does get all the brushing he really needs.
Wonderful sense of volume too, both the soft volume of all his magnificent fur and the solid anatomy underneath. Fantastic cat. Love this.
Subtle, variegated background sets off his portrait well too. It's too easy to get a good portrait and give it a flat bland background.
