Huge silver tabby Maine Coon with jet black feet

This is a very interesting looking Maine Coon cat. Firstly, as expected, this is a huge cat. The size is at the very top end of Maine Coon size. They do not come much bigger if at all. The cat is a silver tabby in my opinion and perhaps the more interesting aspect of this cat beyond his size is the jet black feet. 

The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) states this about the feet:  Paws large, round, well-tufted. 'Well tufted' means hair between the toes. The CFA does not show us cats like this on their website. Their champion Maine Coons are much more conventional in size.

The hair between the toes, which sticks out at all angles, is black. You know, for MCs, there should be hair between the toes sticking out like this. The breeders like to see this. And it is all the more visible because of its dark colour. It contrasts very nicely with the shiny silver coat. 

This cat is about the size of a Canada lynx which is remarkable because the lynx is a medium-sized wild cat species. He does, however, look as if he is a tad overwright. Maine Coons should be quite slender under all that shaggy fur.

I don't know where the photograph was taken. It is a photograph on the Instagram website. The cat's head is, as you can see, about the same size as the head of his human companion. Remarkable. 

Sometimes it seems that Maine Coon cats are getting bigger by the day. However, I think that it is more to do with the fact that we are only seeing the very big Maine Coons on the Internet as they attract the most attention. 

But there is somebody out there, a cat breeder, who is breeding these enormous domestic cats. The Maine Coon is the largest domestic cat breed in the world.
