Let photographer Robert Sijka introduce you to Maine Coons - domesticated big cat breed that sure will leave you in awe. These fluffy cats are 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 Maine Coon cats as majestic, almost mythical, not overly cute cats 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 cat photo series.

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

Mine sits up like a Gopher to get a better view around. Can sit up like that for a long time. Surprised me, but I taught her to sit on command by holding my finger just above her nose. Real crowd pleaser.
