You can get an idea how big my Precious has grown by looking at this pic of him with my friend Norma. At 12 months Precious is bigger and longer than Junior and most normal cats. My friend suspects that he has Maine Coon ancestry. Let's see if he continued to grow bigger and longer in the coming months. He certainly had the traits of a Maine Coon. Precious is good tempered and gentle. Plus he gets scared when there are strangers.
