“Maine coon” cats form the largest breed of domesticated felines in the world. In fact there are those who say there are like a lynx, and then when you see them, you understand why.
According to Wikipedia it’s says that Marie Antoinette, queen of France, when she tried to escape from France and the problems, embarks towards the United States with six of her Angora cats from Turkey with the help of the captain, Samuel Clough. Marie Antoinette failed to reach the United States, but her cats did it.
An American photographer, Robert Sijka, has specialized in photographing these felines and the truth is that they almost look like mythological creatures, Egyptian effigies os small jungle beasts.
