A cat named Kefir who lives with its owner Yuliya Minina in Stary Oskol, Russia. It didn’t take too long for the cat to stick out because of its enormous size. Kefir is 1 year and 9 months old now and weighs around 26 pounds. Since it can take 5 years for a Maine Coon to fully mature, it’ll be interesting to see what he maxes out at. He’s quite a stunner. My family had an experience similar to this. My mother took in a small kitten (the smallest kitten I’d ever seen in my entire life) whose Siamese mother had gone up into the hills and came back pregnant. The person we got the kitten from said it was female, so my mom named it Tinkerbell, because it was so tiny. Later on, we discovered it was half bobcat, and… it was a “he”. Tinkerbell was big, heavy and could tear out a huge chunk of your flesh with one swipe of his massive paws. I’m not going to lie; Tinkerbell could be scary at times (especially when he wanted to play), but he was also such a loving cat and so fun to live with. I loved Tinkerbell. He really was a member of the family. Damn, that’s a big boy even for a Maine coon and he still has a few years to grow. Both are lucky to have found each other and I am beyond jealous! I can tell that mega floof is as sweet as he is big. I also got a Maine Coon. He was so tiny when we first got him that we jokingly called him a Little Rat because of his furrless tail. I love this breed, Cedrik literally has a cat hardware with dog software. Sits and waits like a dog, can fetch and loves water. He’s also one heavy son of a gun 😀 I had an experience similar to this. My previous cat, Gizmo, died of kidney failure that age 16. A few days later I went to the animal shelter and was chosen by this small, under fed gray cat that weighed 4 pounds. It jumped into my lap and would let any other cat come near. I adopted her. Little did I know what was going to happen.
Within 6 months she weighed in at 17 pounds. In a year she was at 22 pounds and it is all muscle not fat. She likes to come in the shower with me (I really think she just likes it when I rub her dry and brush fur afterward). She also likes to sleep under the covers with me.
She seems to have stabilized at 22 pounds, but who knows. She might decide she wants to be bigger! LOL
