Maine Coon State Cat of Maine

In April 1985 the governor of Maine signed a bill after a considerable struggle, it seems, that recognised the Maine Coon cat breed as the official state feline.

A "no" vote from the legislature's State Government Committee was overturned and there was a a bit of a media campaign to see off too.

The bill/legislation is number HF 199-LC233. A champion Maine Coon cat called, "None-such Baxter" was present when the bill was passed (as I understand it!).

It was a joyous day for those in the cat fancy who were concerned with the Maine Coon cat.
