|Maine Coon "Shiner" - Photo copyright Helmi Flick|
Shiner is a fantastic silver classic tabby. His tail is a massive plume of flashy hair. His ears have that pointed look because of the ear tufts that grow from the tips. He looks quite stocky but I think you will find that he is quite slender under that impressive coat. You can see why the Maine Coon is probably the world's most popular breed of cat. Add to the impressive appearance the fact that this cat breed was developed in the USA, which is the largest market for purebred cats and you can see where the popularity comes from. Like all the best things in the USA the Maine Coon originates in Britain! Just joking. This is the largest of the breeds registered by the CFA in my opinion and size counts.
