All cats are pretty majestic thanks to their fierce attitude and because they don’t let anything and anyone intimidate them, but these amazing cats take things to a whole other level.
The Maine Coon is the largest domesticated breed of cats, and one of the oldest natural breed in North America (thanks, Wikipedia!). They’re also pretty awesome (this I’ve came up with all by myself).
The cats are easy to distinguish from regular cats due to their distinctive physical appearance that is sure not to go unnoticed. The cats look like a beautiful mix between a domestic cat and a bobcat. The cats commonly have tufts of hairs on the tips of their ears, hence their resemblance to bobcats. Their dense fur is water resistant and absolutely gorgeous. Their long and bushy raccoon-like tail only makes their appearance that more interesting.
Maine Coon cats are also lot bigger than regular cats. In fact, an adult male can grow up to be as heave as 16 pounds. That’s the weight of a small child!
Another thing you should know about them is that they have great hunting skills and possess above-average intelligence. This means you’ll have an easier time training them than you would with regular cats. They are also playful and affectionate. On the downside, they might get more attention when you’re together out in public than you will.
Even so, I bet that after reading this you want one, right?
If not, then maybe these gorgeous pictures taken by photographer Robert Sijka will make you want to be the owner of a beautiful Maine Coon cat.
