Did you know that the median age of the world population is just 31 years old? It may not seem like a lot, but when compared to the world’s oldest cat, who lived to be an impressive 38 years old, it puts things into perspective. Cats are always breaking records, and we’ve recently come across Kefir, who has been named the world’s largest cat. We were lucky enough to speak with Kefir’s owner and best friend, Yuliya, and she shared some fascinating details with us about this magnificent Maine Coon who looks like royalty with his white fur. So get ready to learn more about Kefir – we’re here to spill the kibble!
Online sensation Kefir, a Maine Coon cat weighing in at 27 lbs (12.2 kg), has captured the hearts of many. The furry feline was playfully named after a fermented milk drink by Yuliya’s two daughters and often confuses people into thinking it’s a dog. Although still considered a kitten, Maine Coons continue to grow until the age of 3 or 4, unlike typical domestic cats that reach full size by 1 or 2 years old.
Kefir possesses the ability to open all the doors in the house with his strong paws. However, Kefir is not your typical feline as he has a fondness for water and swimming. Despite being larger than most cats, Kefir enjoys taking a dip in the water. The only drawback to his love of swimming is that his coat takes quite a while to dry.
Visitors are always amazed by Kefir, a loving and affectionate feline who enjoys cuddles and strokes. Kefir’s favorite spot is the kitchen table, and according to Yuliya, his favorite pastime is sleeping on her. However, Kefir has become quite heavy.
