Unique photos show the true beauty of Maine Coons

The Maine Coon is a very big, muscular and broad chested cat with American origins. The breed is the largest of domesticated cats and they usually attract media attention for their magical appearance. 

But don’t be fooled by their respectable size – Maine Coons are usually very friendly and get along with everyone, including children, dogs and other cats.

Photographer Robert Sijka love cats and photography, so he does his best to combine both those things as good as possible.

Robert was so taken by the majestic Maine Coons that he has specifically done a Maine Coon series, to share their beauty with the world.

”It all started when I stumbled across the striking photo of Dolce Vita and De La Loo – two of the most majestic black Maine Coons I had ever seen and photographed beautifully on a simple black background..”, Robert told Catbehaviourist.

Take a look at some of Siljka’s stunning portraits of these majectic cats below!

They are very sociable and it isn’t unusual for them to enjoy playing around in water and also learn to open doors.

Some people claim that Maine Coons are native to the state of Maine (where they’re also the official state cat), but how they originated remains a mystery, according to Healthy Pets.

The ears of the Maine Coon cat are very special and one of its most distinguishing features. 

These birds have no respect for me, they fly outside the window all the time…#mainecoon #cat #mcovivo

Many people believe that Maine Coon cats are part lynx, due to the tufts on their ears, called lynx tips. But that’s not true.
