Let photographer Robert Sijka introduce you to Maine Coons - the largest domesticated breed of cats in the world. They're basically the closest thing to a lynx that you can share your home with, without worrying too much about your well-being.

Sijka always saw cats as majestic, almost mystical beasts, and now he came up with a way to share that image with the rest of us: "My passions are cats and photography, I do my best to combine these two things as good as possible," the photographer shares on his website. And he managed to combine those passions perfectly in his royal-like Maine Coon portrait series.

He got the inspiration from a "photo of Dolce Vita and De La Loo - two of the most majestic black Maine Coons... photographed beautifully on a simple black background", Robert told Cat Behaviourist. And ever since that moment, he was creating these mesmerizing portraits himself.
