Samson is a Maine Coon, and they are known for being quite large animals. In fact, they are known for being massive cats. They’re among the biggest in the world, and they look it. It is entirely too easy to pick one out, too, as they are so distinct looking in their size and their facial expression. We love that these darling animals have a ruff like a lion, but can be as big as a bobcat in many instances. Samson is one of those cats. This NYC native looks like a cat much larger than he is. He weighs a whopping 28-pounds, and he is huge. What’s amazing is that he’s not a fat cat. He’s perfectly healthy in terms of his weight, but many people assume he is a wild cat because of his size.
To be fair, he has very long fur that does make him look significantly larger than he actually is, but it’s a lot of fun to stand around a get to know him. There is reason to believe he is the biggest cat in Manhattan, but it’s not yet been proved. He is a bit of a sensation because his owner pushes his cat around in a big stroller. He says people want to see his baby, and they are shocked that he is pushing a dog around, but even more shocked when they realize it’s a cat and not a dog. Most people ask him if Samson is a bobcat or another type of wild cat, and his owner would not have it any other way.
