Massive muzzle on Maine Coon (picture)

This is another extraordinary looking Maine Coon. I have described the cat’s muzzle as massive. It is very strong and lion-like.

Another ‘extreme’ Maine Coon breeder in Russia makes her cats look like humans. Breeders love to push the boundaries. Breeding to extreme is a temptation that breeders have difficulties resisting because they play god and want to create desirable, interesting products which bring them attention and which sell at the highest price.
