This story is about a girl named Maria who accidentally found a little kitten at the market and decided to take him home. At first glance, the kitten, named Barsik, appeared to be a typical, cute little purrball.
However, as time passed, it became evident that Barsik was growing unusually. His size exceeded expectations, and Maria, the owner, began to realize that her cute pet was not as ordinary as he initially seemed.
By the time the cat turned one year old, he was already enormous, reaching the size of an adult Maine Coon. Weighing 15 kg and measuring 1.5 meters in length, Barsik was an impressive specimen of his kind.
After a visit to the veterinarians, it was speculated that Barsik might be the result of a domestic Maine Coon cat mating with a wild cat. However, confirming this was challenging.
Though Maria faced some challenges, such as Barsik’s enormous appetite and the peculiar sounds he made at night, she still loved her unique pet.
The story raises the question of whether you have ever encountered large Maine Coon cats and whether you find them appealing.
