Does Muffins look like a Maine Coon mix to anyone knowledgeable?

I have a beautiful 2 year old male (Oreo) who looks just like your Muffins. Oreo also came from the humane society and I'm nearly 100% sure that he is a Maine Coon.

Our neighbor's MC in CA used to walk the neighborhood kids in our cul-de-sac to the bus stop and wait with them for the school bus. So funny in the morning when I drove by to see this huge cat sitting there with the kids. The kids loved it.

Default maine coon

I recently moved into a rental house and have been taking Bubba outside on his leash, yes, he walks on a leash....well, marches on a leash. Loves it!!! Had him out there the other evening and the kids next door were playing basketball in their driveway. One of the boys said "she's got a dog" and then I heard " its a cat ON A LEASH?!?!?!?!?!' I laughed and said yes it's a cat and he loves to walk on his leash... the next evening I was sitting in the yard furbustering him, he has gotten lazy about grooming and I have been lazy about brushing him, which usually gets him grooming better. So we had clumps of hair flying around. there were a couple of different kids there and they were fascinated watching me comb him with softball size clumps of hair flying around. I think I'm officially the crazy cat lady of the neighborhood, and don't mind.

Not sure if she's a pure bred main coon, but she sure looks like the pics I've seen on the internet of one.

Wink Maine Coon's are a Treat

I have owned a Maine Coon now, for 6 years. She is alert, full of Play, and very Loyal, to "Insiders" > {People she knows}. She can be very Affectionate, when SHE wants to. I can hold her for long amounts of time in the Evenings, when she is done with her activities. She curls into a ball, and Purrrs & Purrrs. Have also had her "Nip" the bottom of my leg, ever so slightly, when I walk by. I read on the Internet, that this is an extreme gesture of their affection. {Her fur is Long, thick, & several Colors, so I named her "Patches".} Great Cat & Friend!!!
