Meet the giant Maine coon cats that are taking the internet by storm

The Maine coon is a big, muscular and broad chested cat with American origins.

The cat is the largest cat that is kept as a pet – and has quite a unique appearance.

Photographer Robert Siljka decided to photograph several Maine coon cats and share their beauty with the world.

“My passions are cats and photography, I do my best to combine these two things as [well] as possible,” he writes on his homepage.

Just take a look at some of Siljka’s stunning portraits of these majectic cats below!

A full-grown Maine Coon male weighs around 6-8 kg. The breed is described as curious, fast learners with stable temperaments. They are very sociable and it isn’t unusual for them to enjoy playing around in water and also learn to open doors.

Badass cat.
