What is Zeus..?

Hello everyone,

I recently got a kitty, Zeus, but I don't know what breed he is.
I didn't buy the cat, I rescued it from the streets (how I caught him is pretty interesting) so I'm not sure what kind of breed he is.

When I first got him, he had some stomach/digestive issues, he wouldn't go to the litter, he'd go only to pee, so I took him to the vet, and he gave me pills for worms.
I gave him one pill, and I have to give him another pill in 7 days.
Then go in for another check up.

I did some research and came to the conclusion that Zeus is a Maine Coon, but my friend (who's on this site) told me that he probably isn't...
I just wanted to make sure, maybe somebody could let me know his what breed he is, and I will post up more, better, pictures later on.
And I will keep you posted about his health and other issues if they arise.

Welcome Giovanni. I am not a cat owner or expert, so I won't hazard a guess as to his breed. Thank you for rescuing him though, he's one very lucky kitty it seems. He is just gorgeous as well, we look forward to lots of great kitty stories and pics. You know kitties love to have kitty companions!!!

What a gorgeous little kitten, Giovanni! Welcome to the board and I'm looking forward to seeing more pics of your new little addition!

I'll tell you what Zeus is...A CUTIEPATOOTIE! What a little sweetie. Thank you for giving him a home.

I venture to guess he's a good old domestic shorthair or aka, a domestic shorthair. Likely he's got several breeds in his ancestry.
There are only two rules at my house: House rule #1. Cats rule. House rule #2. See rule #1.

Thank you for rescuing this little guy, sure would love to hear your "capture" story.

Hard to tell what this kitty has in his gene pool as he is very young and very beautiful.

Jasper, male Ragdoll ?? (approx 10 yrs)
Rose semi feral, a cpietra rescue, female tabby (approx 7 yrs)

Sweet Pea RIP (2004?-2014)

Snowball RIP (1991-2005)
