Animals & Nature Oct 29, 2023

Hey there, let’s talk about Maine Coon cats, the big shots of the cat world. These cats are known for being massive and having super thick fur, which comes in handy when the winter chill hits. People love ’em so much they even call ’em “gentle giants.” Why? ‘Cause they’re like your BFF, always wanting to hang out with you, and they’re super friendly. Plus, they’ve got this crazy ability to pick up on your feelings, making them the ultimate pet.

But that’s not all – these cats, sometimes called Maine Coons, are pretty nosy and love to explore. They’re clever and strong, too, so they can learn all kinds of cool tricks and get along with pretty much everyone – dogs, kids, you name it. The only downside is they’re pretty darn huge and that fluffy fur needs constant attention.

Now, onto the main event – Samson, the king-sized Maine Coon cat living it up in NYC. This dude’s not just any ol’ house cat; he’s like a wild bobcat’s bigger cousin. His human, Jonathan Zurbel, couldn’t be prouder. Samson stretches about four feet from head to tail and weighs a whopping 28 pounds, earning him the title of “The Largest Cat in New York City.” And hey, he might just be the world’s biggest cat.

Samson’s path to stardom kicked off when the last Guinness World Record-holding cat said his goodbyes in 2013. That’s when Samson officially became the new top cat, measuring a whopping 4.04 feet tall. This Maine Coon is like a perfect combo of cute and tough, and the “gentle giant” label fits him to a tee, considering his chill vibe. But here’s the real kicker – Samson isn’t some chubby cat; he’s a powerhouse of pure muscle.
