Cats come in different sizes, colors, patterns and personalities and we love all of our feline friends. But did you know that some cats can grow to the size of a mid-size dog? Considering our domestic cats have descended from African wild cats, this is not so surprising. So, here are 10 cat giants that we love having as pets today.
This large cat is quite impressive to look at. Not only is it large in size, it has beautiful triple-layered fur, imposing body and a cute face with beautiful green or gold eyes. The Siberian has a distinctive bushy tail, fluffy neck and even fluffy ears and, when you think of it, all of this has historically helped the Siberian to keep warm in the cold Russian weather.
But this majestic cat isn’t just large and gorgeous, it is friendly and devoted to the owner. Siberians love to spend time with people, especially children and they don’t mind the company of dogs either. They are also hypoallergenic which makes them an excellent choice for a pet if someone in your family is allergic to cat hair.
