The Maine Coon cat is among the biggest domestic breeds of cats. Actually, the record for the “longest cat” in the 2010 Guinness World Records was achieved by Stewie, with 48.5 in (123 cm) from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail. Male cats could weigh up to 35 lb.
The Maine Coon is a very friendly cat, therefore its nickname, “the gentle giant.” It is identified by a significant ruff along its chest, strong bone composition, rectangular physique, a shiny flowing fur, and a lengthy, bushy tail. The breed’s colors differ broadly, with lilac and chocolate disallowed for pedigree. Popular for its cleverness and mischievous, delicate nature, the Maine Coon is usually referred to as possessing “dog-like” characteristics.
