Meet Kefir – The Giant Maine Coon Cat That Looks Like A White Lion
No one could possibly resist the cuteness of a tiny, fluffy kitty. But if you ever had a cuddle with a big fluffball, you’d know that these gentle feline giants are as equally adorable and affectionate as their ‘smaller’ counterparts. Take this lovable giant Maine Coon cat named Kefir for example. This majestic ball of fluff is currently stealing hearts on social media. And you only need to see his pics to see why.
Kefir’s owner, Yulia Minina, describes him as a ‘gentle creature in the body of a formidable beast’. One of the largest domestic cat breeds in the world, the Maine Coon could weigh up to 25 lbs when fully matured. Kefir weighs an astounding 27 lbs, putting him on the larger end of the size spectrum. Minina adopted him as a kitten a couple of years ago. Although she was aware that Maine Coons would grow big, never did she imagine that Kefir would grow into a giant. In fact, he was so big that he is often mistaken for a large dog.
The stunningly looking giant feline is making everyone fall in love with his long, silky coat. Typical of Maine Coon, his human refers to him as a ‘gentle giant’, relaxed, smart, and playful like a kitten. Minina also says that her massive kitty behaves more like a dog than a cat – he loves getting petted and enjoys being the center of attention.
