Maine Coons are one of the largest domesticated cat breeds in the world (the largest being the Savannah). They're pretty much the closest thing you can have to a lynx in your home and still be safe.
In my opinion they're also one of the most beautiful cats of all, a view that's obviously shared by photographer Robert Sijka.
He always saw cats as being majestic, almost mystical beasts, and he wanted to find a way to share that image with other cat lovers: "My passions are cats and photography, I do my best to combine these two things as good as possible," he says on his website.
After you've had a look at all of his haunting and moving images I'm sure you'll agree with me that he absolutely succeeded in his goal.
