Maine Coon cats are the largest breed of domestic cats—they typically keep growing until they’re about four years old. Male Maine Coon cats usually weigh around 15 to 25 pounds and are about 40 inches long. Female cats also typically grow to be about 40 inches long, and they can weigh anywhere from 10 to 15 pounds.

Lotus is an average-sized Maine Coon cat. The fluffy cat is three years old, and he weighs about 22 pounds.

Lotus lives with his family in Sweden, and he spends most of his time relaxing in the house and taking naps. He loves cuddling with his family members, and especially his human sister. He and his sister are almost the same size!

Lotus also enjoys exploring the world outside with his family. His fluffy coat keeps him cozy and warm on even the coldest Scandinavian winter days. His bright white fur also perfectly matches the snow.

“I have a light small voice and I`m gentle in my way. Calm and kind, love my family. Like sleeping on the balcony or on the backrest on the couch. Likes to experience nature and animals,” ‘Lotus’ wrote on his website.

Lotus has a curious, playful personality. Whenever he sees something he isn’t sure about, he has to investigate it. That’s just what happened when his mom got a new washing machine.

“The first time I saw a front-loading washing machine was a bit scary. I didn’t know what was moving in there … You had to be careful, so it wasn’t dangerous,” ‘Lotus’ said.
