This cat is as big as a medium-sized dog and bigger. He is too big to be a lap cat. He is almost as big as his owner in this photo! He is bordering on the size of a big dog! He looks very fit and healthy with a beautiful grey-and-white medium long-haired coat. They are both watching the television. Great photo. It’s a double-take photo. The photo comes from Reddit and the uploader said, “My aunt’s cat is HUGE”. It is real.
To the best of my knowledge the cat is random bred (a moggie). He is just one of those rare domestic cats who happen to be bloody huge. They are one in a million. I don’t think he is a Maine Coon because of his appearance. Although sometimes breeders breed cats which are not ‘to type’ i.e. they are not good examples from a show cat perspective. The Maine Coon is the world’s largest cat breed (excluding F1 wild cat hybrids).
It is the sort of photograph you have to look at twice because it is a bit freaky. I don’t see any sign of photo-editing. It looks absolutely genuine. But the cat looks like he has been pumped up like a plastic toy. He does not look real.
