The Maine Coon is well-known as the “gentle giant” of cats.But do you know why?🤔Let`s see! 👌😄
#1 Maine Coon is the largest domestic cat breed. 😻👍
#2 They’re big boned and muscular, with males weighing up to 18 pounds. 😊😋
#3 Maine Coon cats are one of the most popular cat breeds in the US. 🤗🌈
#4 Maine Coon Cats don’t typically “meow;” they chirp and trill (a mixture of a meow and a purr). 😄👌
#5 They are said to be native to the state of Maine (where they’re also the official state cat), but how they originated remains a mystery.🤔😍
Before Maine was a state – just a development – it was provisioned by a small ship, Captained by one Alan Coon. The cats that arrived on (and illegally disembarked from) his ship bred/were bred and were named after that Captain! Hence: “Maine Coon”.
