Answer: Maine Coon

Renowned for its intelligence and playful, gentle personality, the Maine Coon is a very large and sociable cat, hence its nickname, “the gentle giant.” It is characterized by a prominent ruff along its chest, robust bone structure, triangular body shape and a long, bushy tail. Maine Coons are big boned and muscular, with males weighing up to 18 pounds. They’re also known as the American Longhair.
