But before I show you the video, let me explain you something about maine coon cats :-)

The Maine Coon is one of the largest domesticated breeds of cat. They can reach up to 15 kilograms!! My Nelson is now 2 years old and has 11 kilograms. But he's just a baby because these cats grow for about 4 years. Their full potential size is normally not reached until they are three to five years old, while other cats take about one year.

It has a distinctive physical appearance and valuable hunting skills. Even if they are soo big you can not imagine how fast they are! This breed is now one of the more popular cat breeds in the world.

The Maine Coon is a large and sociable cat, hence its nickname, "the gentle giant."

Maine Coons have several physical adaptations for survival in harsh winter climates.

They have water resistant fur and long and bushy raccoon-like tail that can be curled around their face and shoulders for warmth and protection from wind and blowing snow...

Large paws help them walking on snow. It's like they have snowshoes.

Long tufts of fur growing between their toes help keep the toes warm.

Heavily furred ears with extra long tufts of fur growing from inside help keep their ears warm.

All of these characteristics are developed because they came from cold places where they lived in the snow.

One of the caracteristic of the Maine Coon, that I think every owner will agree with me, is that they are like dogs. The Maine Coon is often cited as having "dog-like" characteristics. Let me explain.... everywhere I go, Nelson goes! I cook ...well he ''cooks'' with me. I go to bed and guess what...he follows me to bed... I tell him to sit still, and he will obey.
The Maine Coons are known also for its intelligence and playful, gentle personality. They like water, cuddling and other animals.IMG_20170704_172433.jpg

Ow and I almost forgot to tell you this.... they snore! :-) I think they do that because of the pose in which they sleep! But I'm not sure :-D I'm just guessing it!
