A Maine coon tabby mix is a feline that has genetic traits from both a tabby and Main coon cat. While the species may be difficult to identify by observing markings alone, it is possible by noting a few physical and personality traits.
Characteristics such as lynx-like ears and extra fur around the paws help determine if a cat is a Main coon tabby mix. Maine coons are a large breed of long-haired cat that originated in New England. While the brown tabby pattern is the most common coloring of this breed, they can also feature solid colors, bi-colors and even the calico or tortoiseshell pattern. The only color pattern that this breed does not feature is pointed, like the Siamese.
