Maine Coon cats are gentle giants that get a lot of love on the internet—and it’s easy to see why! The majestic creatures are large and in charge with fluffy coats and striking manes. One of the latest felines to make a splash online is Kefir, a Maine Coon that lives with his human Yulia Minina in Stary Oskol, Russia. This absolute unit of a cat is so large that he is often mistaken for a dog.
Minina adopted Kefir nearly two years ago, when he was a kitten, without knowing that one day he’d weigh over 27 pounds. At this weight, he’s beyond the larger end of the Maine Coon size spectrum, which typically taps out around 25 pounds.
Kefir doesn’t let his looming size go to his head, though. According to his human, he’s a sweet cat that is “very smart and always behaves calmly.” Unlike some cats, he doesn’t mind being the center of attention and having his fur stroked by friends and acquaintances alike.
Scroll down to see just how large Kefir is. Then, follow him on Minina’s new TikTok account dedicated to all of his fluffy glory.
