'World's Biggest Cat' Is So Large It Gets Mistaken For A Dog

A kitten living in Russia is so huge, people mistake it for a dog. Anyone else feeling terrified?!

Kefir - named after the yoghurt drink - belongs to owner Yulia Minina, who bought the cat almost two years ago. But Kefir has grown so big, people assume he's actually a dog.

Yulia explained that Kefir is still considered a kitten, meaning he actually still has a fair amount of growing to do. You can watch a clip of him below:



“I could not even think that an ordinary baby can become so big," says Yulia.

“He not only grew up big in appearance, he is also very smart and always behaves calmly.

"The look is generally like that of a person, and Kefir has a formidable appearance, but he is a very affectionate and modest child.

"When friends and acquaintances come to the house - all the attention is on him and he willingly allows himself to be stroked."

Yulia explains that when approached by strangers, most assume Kefir is actually a dog.

''But when strangers come to the house, everyone first confuses him with a dog," she says.

“He has one more habit: at night he likes to climb on me and sleep. When he was a kitten, it didn’t cause me any inconvenience.


''But now he has become big and heavy, and, of course, it is difficult to sleep like that.

"Kefir is now one year and ten months old and weighs 12.5 kg. He is still considered a kitten. Maine Coons grow up to 3-4 years.

''Therefore, I think [he] should become even larger.”

Questioned whether Kefir is really that big, Yulia adds: "I don't use Photoshop".

Maine Coon cats can grow to be some of the largest domestic cats in the world, and are generally considered to be the largest domestic cat breed.
