Maine Coon

An extroverted and playful breed and natural-born swimmer

Affectionate and sweet-natured, the Maine Coon cat is gentler than its massive size and shaggy appearance suggest. Sometimes Maine Coons are polydactyls - meaning they have an extra toe or two on their paw. It generally causes no harm to them at all and runs no health risks - it’s just a gene defect they’ve inherited along the way!
