The Siberian

The Siberian is truly a magnificent looking feline.  With their triple layer coat, they make you just want to hug them.  Their temperament is very mellow and they love to follow you around.  A Siberian wants to help with whatever you are doing just to spend time with you.  They have amazing jumping abilities so can be found on the tallest spots in you home.  This beautiful cat does require some grooming as they shed heavily during the spring and fall.  Maintaining their coats can be work but their gorgeous coat is worth the upkeep.  Siberians are very playful and love to play fetch.  Be careful what you leave out as anything is fair game when they want to play.  Similar to the Maine Coon, this is a large cat and can average around 20 pounds.  They like to be in charge when it comes to other animals but get along well in multiple pet households.  All in all they make a great family pet.  Look at the magnificent Siberian when searching for your next pet.

The Maine Coon

Lets talk about the Maine Coon.

These beautiful long-haired cats are one of the largest domestic cats in the US.  A male cat can weigh up to 25 pounds and a female can weigh up to 15 pounds.  This long solid cat can easily take over your seating space if allowed.  Maine Coons are very friendly and are considered of above average intelligence.  They love spending time outdoors and remain playful into old age.

You can even hold a conversation with one!  They have a wide range of vocal sounds to use which makes for some great bonding.  The Maine Coon gets along well with other animals due to their calm nature and can make a good family pet.

While bathing isn't necessary, Maine Coons do have a tendency to love water so they are not opposed to bathing.  Brushing should be started while they are kittens.  Their long-haired coat can get matted or knotted up which can be helped with daily brushing.

Overall, this is a pretty healthy cat with a long life.  On average, a Maine Coon will live 12-15 years.
Which means you will have a awesome beautiful companion for a long time.

Norwegian Forest Cat

Just found an amazing cat while doing some research.  The Norwegian Forest Cat nicknamed the Wegie. The Wegie has a triangular shaped head with heavily tufted ears and a pointed chin. Large almond shaped eyes in green, gold or copper complete their beautiful face. They have a longer body with a broad chest and muscular thighs. Its bushy tail is as long as it's body. Their paws are large with tufts of fur between their toes.

They are noted for their long thick coats and larger size. Their weatherproof double coat will vary in length and thickness depending on the seasons.  The coat on their body is long and flowing with long hair covering their hind legs. They have a "bib" look which starts with a short collar at the neck and "mutton chops" on the side and a full frontal ruff. You can find them in almost any color except chocolate, lavender, lilac or a pointed pattern.

Take a look at this gorgeous cat. Who wouldn't love to have one?
