Large cats are often seen, and in most cases, their size is due to insatiable hunger and excess food ingested. This is not the case with the Maine Coon, however, one of the larger breeds of domestic felines. This breed can weigh up to 16 kg and measure up to a meter from nose to tail. They are native to North America and besides their size, they are famous for their long coat and extremely bushy tails. Welcoming them home is certainly a big commitment, but it pays off with the hugs and their loud, countless purrs. Any cat, put next to a Maine Coin, looks really tiny.
