27. He's a beauty!
love the coloration and the crossed blue eyes. :-)

My domestic shorthair spent several years at 27 pounds-not long, just fat! He trimmed down when the kittens came to the house; guess he found his inner kitten after 15 years!

Oberon (my MC) is 45 inches from nose to tail tip. MCs started out as crosses between wild cats (lynx/ bobcats) and longhairs that were brought over from France and Norway in the early 1700s. For a long time, MC breeders didn't want to acknowlege their possible wild ancestery, but recent DNA testing has proven that the breed is decended from those "forest cats".

I know some people that keep rehabilitated bobcats and lynx who were rescued from fur farms; they are very docile, and hardly seem any different from domestic cats (save that the lynx are as tall as labradors)!
