Samson is New York’s largest domestic cat, we are told, and I can believe it. I think you will too when you see him. He is absolutely enormous and absolutely gorgeous at the same time. He does seem to have a sort of rexed-type coat (crinkly) as well by the way.
I’m not sure but it does look a bit like that and there is such a cat is a Maine Coon rex. Anyway that’s by the by. He’s 4 foot long and has over 67,000 followers on Instagram. He is of course a celebrity on the Internet. That goes without saying.
He lives with his human companion Jonathan Zurbel. Samson came to Jonathan via an unusual route. His brother and his brother’s girlfriend adopted Samson but their relationship ended and at that time Samson started to live with Jonathan and naturally they became inseparable.
Samson has his personal groomer, Carolyn Ayala, who travels with him to his television interviews and photo shoots.
People are requesting a sample of Samson’s sperm so that they can breed their own massive Maine Coon cat. These requests have been declined!
