This is an exceptional video from Russia, where else? They breed the best Maine Coons which is ironic as it is America’s cat. The Maine Coon is the American cat – and Russia’s! It’s funny; perhaps the Maine Coon might bring about detente between America and Russia. I am sure that Russian breeders discuss things with their American counterparts. The video is unusual because of the large number of young, attractive Maine Coons and all are following a cat tease. We see quite a lot of these videos when, normally, kittens follow an object moved around by their breeder. It creates an interesting visual. However, this is the first time I’ve seen 15 Maine Coons do the trick. They do it entirely naturally, of course, because they are following a moving object which to them is a prey animal. Domestic cats instinctively follow movement and decide whether it is an animal to be attacked or something else to be interested in, which is why they follow the object so intently, in unison.
Note: This is a video from another website. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.
What you see in the picture is a room in the breeder’s home where the kittens grow up and rest. Cat breeders normally work from home as hobby breeders but there is a lot of money in it nowadays. Good quality Maine Coons go for over $1,000.
