Maine Coon cats are a larger breed of cat that will shock and impress you by their size. But they’re not for everyone—when you check out these photos you’ll see that they eat more than their share of cat food—and they need plenty of outdoor exercise.
In 2010, Stewie won the Guiness World Record for being the world’s “Longest Cat”. He measured in at 48.5 inches/123 centimeters from the end of his nose to the tip of his tail. That’s over four feet long if you do the math! Adult male cats can weigh as much as 35 lbs/15.9 kg!
It’s a mystery as to how the Maine Coon cat was bred, though many myths say they bred with a racoon. A wild cat is more likely. Another myth says that Marie Antoinette’s cats fled to the shores of Wiscasset, Maine, to avoid beheading. Whatever the reason, these cats are large, beautiful, and fluffy.
