Max is a huge cat, he is a true representative of the Maine Coon breed. This breed of semi long haired cats is of American origin, as I believe that the ancestors of these big cats lived in the U.S. state of Maine.
The literal translation of the breed’s name means “raccoon of Maine”. And this name is not accidental, as Maine coons do have the similarity to raccoons because of its color, strong body and a big white tail.
The breed of these cats is rightly called one of the largest in the world, and the average weight of males can reach 7 to 12 kg. Average cat of this breed weighs 5-6 pounds. An adult cat can reach a weight up to 15 kg.
