The 20 Cutest Maine Coon Cat Videos of All-Time

Maine Coon cats are the official cat of Maine, and the long-haired cat breed native to America, and most likely the oldest breed, too. Their history is unclear, but it’s most commonly thought that they are descendants of short-haired cats existing in America already and long-haired cats brought home by New England sailors. There is also a close resemblance between Norwegian Forest cats and Maine Coon cats, which prompts some speculation that Maine Coons are descendants of cats brought by Vikings.

They were first respected as mousers, and competitions were created to reward the best ones. They were originally considered to be working cats, and their shaggy coats and tufted paws suited them for the cold winters typical of New England. Though they worked for generations on farms and in homes, they are now pedigreed, and one of the most popular breeds.

Their coats have three lengths which help to keep them warm, their tails are long and full to protect them and add warmth, and their paws help them to walk across snow. The tufts on their ears also help to keep them warmer. They are not only beautiful, but they are intelligent and tend to be kind. For this reason, they have earned the nickname of Gentle Giants.

Here are our picks for 20 of the cutest Maine Coon videos of all-time.
