Yes, that's right, kittenS! We have two new kittens!

My brother was on a waiting list for like two years with a Maine Coon breeder. He wanted a black Maine Coon and we were waiting for a litter to be born with a female black kitten. Finally in October they had one! As a bonus, the kitten was polydactyl (extra toes)-- even better!

While we were waiting to be able to bring the kitten home, I found a stray tabby kitten in the alley. The kitten was with his mother, a feral cat who looked very young and skinny. I tried to see if he'd come near me and he came towards me but then decided to run past me instead- straight into my backyard where my dog was! The dog chased him across the yard, but luckily she's well-trained and came back to me when I called her off. The poor kitten was trying to push his way through the garden fencing, and I caught him. The mom had run off so I took him inside. When we went to the vet it turned out he was just about 5-6 weeks old.

To make a long story short(er), I ended up raising the little stray and tried to find a home with no luck. We just brought the Maine Coon kitten home, so now we have two kittens! I named the stray kitten Church, after a Stephen King book. He's a cute little tabby kitty-- well actually not so little anymore, at 14 weeks old he was already nearly 5 pounds! The Maine Coon does not have a permanent name yet, but the breeder called her Roxy.

I think Church is a spotted tabby.
Very nice very odd too.
He also has something of a Bengal probably a combination.
Have fun with both :)

Thanks! I think you are right about him being spotted...

Here is a newer photo of Church:
