We love gigantic domestic cats especially Maine Coons and Samson is just that

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.

  1. I’ve often wondered, as to breeding… since it takes at least a year before extraordinary personality traits are given opportunity to arise, but we routinely spay and neuter cats at two to four months, are we not allowing those to be bred forward? Do we mainly just breed for looks? Many is the time I’ve adopted a cat that turned out to be extraordinary this way, only to wish I had the opportunity to pay forward those personality or cognitive traits we’d love to see more of. I’ve never had the opportunity to breed cats for traits but it seems to me that the system we have in place doesn’t address this aspect.
