Maine Coons are recognized as a domesticated cat breed. This breed originated in the state of Maine in the USA and is considered one of the oldest natural breeds in North America. They are large cats that are very sociable, playful, intelligent, and gentle in personality.
Some of its features include a rectangular body shape, a long bushy tail, ruff along its chest, robust bone structure, and an uneven two-layered coat. The Maine Coon sometimes displays dog-like characteristics and possesses valuable hunting skills. Their unique physical appearance allows them to survive in harsh winter climates.
Maine Coons, also known as “gentle giants”, can be easily trained. They are well recognized for their loyalty towards their family.
These cats were labeled as the largest breed of domestic cats, but this title was taken away with the introduction of Savannah cats.
Today we bring to you the story of Kefir, the enormous white-colored Maine Coon cat living with his human mother Yuliya Minina in Stary Oskol, Russia. Yuliya bought the Maine Coon two years ago and his birthday is the 3rd of March. This gigantic cat weighs around 26.5 pounds for now and is expected to grow more until he is 3-years-old.
Many people mistake Kefir to be a dog because of his large size. He is not just big in size but is also a very smart Maine Coon because he understands some of Yuliya’s commands. Kefir hates dry cat food and prefers to eat meat and natural feed. Despite his size, he is a very gentle soul.
