20 Maine Coon Cats That Will Make Your Cat Look Tiny

If you aren’t already are, The Maine Coon cat is one of the largest domesticated breeds of felines.  As a matter of fact,  the title for the “longest cat” in the 2010 Guinness World Records was held by a Maine Coon named Stewie, who measured 48.5 in (that’s over 4 feet long) from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.   Remember folks, we’re talking domesticated cats here.  These aren’t tigers or cheetahs.  These are cats that are supposed to lounge in your living room!  Male cats can weight up to 35lbs, and in some cases way more than that.

But did you know the origins of the Maine Coon are somewhat of a mystery? Although genetically impossible, one myth holds that the cat is the result of breeding between cats and raccoons; another states that Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France, tried to flee execution her favorite Turkish Angora cats. While she didn’t make it to the US, the cats supposedly landed on the shores of Wiscasset, Maine, where they began to breed.

While the origin still remains a mystery, the size of these cats is extremely evident.  Take a look at these 20 pictures of Maine Coons that will make your cat look tiny.
