Maine Coons – The Next Best Thing to Owning a Lynx

3 Comments

I’m more of a dog person, but when it comes to cats, I like Persians and Scottish Folds (and Sabre-toothed tigers and Kzin). But I just discovered a new breed – Maine Coons. From Robert Sijka and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“Let photographer Robert Sijka introduce you to Maine Coons – the largest domesticated breed of cats in the world. They’re basically the closest thing to a lynx that you can share your home with, without worrying too much about your well-being.

Sijka always saw cats as majestic, almost mystical beasts, and now he came up with a way to share that image with the rest of us: “My passions are cats and photography, I do my best to combine these two things as good as possible,” the photographer shares on his website. And he managed to combine those passions perfectly in his royal-like Maine Coon portrait series.

He got the inspiration from a “photo of Dolce Vita and De La Loo – two of the most majestic black Maine Coons… photographed beautifully on a simple black background”, Robert told Cat Behaviourist. And ever since that moment, he was creating these mesmerizing portraits himself.”
