50 Maine Coon Cats That Will Make Your Cat Look Tiny

The Maine Coon cat is one of the largest domesticated breeds of felines. In fact, the title for the longest cat in the 2010 Guinness World Records was held by a cat of this breed. His name is Stewie, who measured 48.5 in (123 cm) from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail. Male Maine Coon cats can weigh up to 35 lb (15.9 kg). The origins of the Maine Coon, however, are shrouded in mystery. Although genetically impossible, one myth holds that this is the result of breeding between cats and raccoons. Another states that Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France, tried to flee execution with 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. This might also explain why this breed is called Maine.

Not a Persian, note the elongated snout and the prominent "M" coloring on his forehead. Clearly a Maine Coon.

This one looks a lot like my Monster, except he is a short haired. I suspect he is only half Maine Coon because he's only about 38 pounds and doesn't have the long hair.

You're right, but there is always a photoshop whore on every article... They don't even know how to use photoshop, what you can or can't do with it, but still, they see photoshop pictures everywhere.
