11 Photos of Maine Coons That Prove They’re the Fierce Rulers of the Cat World

Maine Coons are known as “gentle giants” or the “dogs of the cat world” because of their playful personalities and large size. They’re a favorite of the Veterinarians.com team and also our community. With their big statures and regal manner, it makes sense how well liked they are!

Just HOW regal, you ask? Don’t worry. We rounded up 11 photos from around the caternet (see what we did there?) so you could see for yourselves. Be warned, you might end up swearing an oath of service by the time you’re done.

  1. They know how to charge a battlefield.
