Just recently, my sister-in-law was telling me about her friend’s giant cat. I was kind of thinking, it’s a cat, how big could it really be? It’s not like it’s a lion or a tiger. Well, I am here to to tell you that this cat is the biggest cat I’ve ever seen! But, don’t call Bentley “fat” he prefers “big boned.” Apparently, he’s a little sensitive.
Bentley is a Maine Coon cat. And because we are all about learning here (and cuteness, and probably pizza too) I looked up some information for you. Maine Coons are also referred to as American Longhairs. They are characterized by long, flowing coats and big bone structure (Wait! He really is big boned!). Males typically weigh between 15 and 25 pounds (Bentley is 30.5). This breed is also known for their intelligence and gentle personalities.

Lots of thanks to Lynn and Dave from Bear, DE for sharing Bentley and his siblings with us!
