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. It would seem that the breeder is deliberately trying to create cats that look like lions. The Maine Coon’s face lends itself to this kind of breeding. 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.

On a practical note, the owner of this cat could not let him wander around the neighbourhood as a indoor/outdoor cat. Not that I am a great fan of letting domestic cats roam freely, I am not, but being a cat guardian of this sort of cat brings with it extra responsibilities.

Below is the face of a more natural Maine Coon:

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
