Picture of Monster Maine Coon

We all like monster Maine Coons and here is one. His head looks as large as his owner’s. He is an armful to carry. I don’t know which breeding cattery created this monster and neither do I know his name. The picture confirms that the Maine Coon is the largest domestic cat breed excluding F1 Savannahs. He looks like he has a smoke coat.

Feel free to upload your photos of big Maine Coon cats. P.S. I am sure that this is a genuine photo with no photoshopping. Are Maine Coon getting bigger and bigger due to years of selective breeding? It looks like it. Selective breeding over a long time alters the appearance of animals.

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).

  • Being of such massive size must put a hideous strain on the heart. I have some real doubts about breeding cats of such epic proportions.

    Their hearts have to work harder and grow bigger, then that brings a whole slew of serious problems.

    I wonder how the lifespan of cats deliberately bred so big stacks up against more normally sized cats of the same breed?

    I think this is vanity breeding. That's me being polite.

    Maybe the man is very small? Maybe this is a cleverish camera angle or some lens trickery? Adobe After FX is a very neat bit of software. Amazing illusions can be created by skillful compositing.

    What kind of life will this cat have if it lives exclusively indoors? Maybe the bloke carrying the cat has a very large house, a large budget for food and litter, not to mention litter trays as big as a human bathtub?
