Have you ever seen a giant cat? No, not like a big house pet, but a big wildcat. Well, there’s one out there about to break the world record for the largest known pet cat! This massive kitty tips the scales at 27.5lb – almost twice as much as your average house cat.
No kitten around, Yulia Minina ‘s pet Kefir looks very powerful. She says the Maine Coon Weights 12.5 kilograms (27.5 lbs). It is just a stone’s throw away from the world record.
And as Kefir is only 22 months, she still has growing to do in Stary Oskol, Russia.
Yulia explains: “I could not even think that an ordinary baby can become so big. He not only grew up big in appearance, but he is also very smart and always behaves calmly.”
“The look is generally like that of a person, and Kefir has a formidable appearance, but he is a very affectionate and modest child.”
“When friends and acquaintances come to the house – all the attention is on him, and he willingly allows himself to be stroked. But when strangers come to the house, everyone first confuses him with a dog.”
“He has one more habit: at night, he likes to climb on me and sleep. When he was a kitten, it didn’t cause me any inconvenience, but now he has become big and heavy, and, of course, it is difficult to sleep like that.
“Kefir is now one year and ten months old and weighs 12.5 kg. He is still considered a kitten. Maine Coons grow up to 3-4 years. Therefore, I think it should become even larger.”
