Kefir, The Giant Maine Coon, Is Often Mistook As A Dog


Kefir, The Giant Maine Coon, Is Often Mistook As A Dog

A real big cat!

Kefir from Russia is on his way to becoming the world’s biggest Maine Coon. The cat is currently almost 2 years old, but it’s weighed at 12.5 kg already, heavier than the average adult male.

His owner, Yulia Minina, bought him as a kitten after falling in love with his snow-white fur.

They reside in Stary Oskol, a small Russian town of Belgorod Oblast, around 600 km south of Moscow.

The average weight of an adult Maine Coon ranges between 7 kg to 11.3 kg, which means that Kefir has well surpassed those numbers with a lot of growing to do. Maine Coons reach their maturity at around 3 to 4 years old.

Kefir’s diet consists of meat and natural feed as he refuses to eat dry food.

“I could not even think that an ordinary baby can become so big. He not only grew up big in appearance; he is also very smart and always behaves calmly,” Minina gushes over her cat. “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 strangers come to the house, everyone first confuses him with a dog. But when friends and acquaintances come to the house – all the attention is on him and he willingly allows himself to be stroked.”

“Kefir doesn’t meow, doesn’t yell, and doesn’t harm the furniture. A truly perfect cat.”

At over 120 cm long, Barivel is the current Guinness World Record holder for the ‘longest cat in the world’ title.

At the time Barivel won it, he was still two years old. We’ll have to see if Kefir will win the title with his impressive size!
