Maine Coon

The Maine Coon Cat Pictures are courtesy of " Nick Bark " from flickr.
He sent me a few words about Maine Coon cats:

"Maine Coons are originally from the north east of the USA, and have heavy top coat and fluffy under coat. They were much prized by farmers as due to their size they made excellent hunters of vermin. As very playful cat they are often considered the dog of the cat world due to their playful nature and their ability to be trained to fetch like dogs.

Their name (legend has it) came from the place where they originated (Maine) and the fact that they look a little like a Racoon!
