The Internet exists for cats and Kefir is taking the entire Internet by storm with photos of his glorious fluffy self.
Kefir is a Maine coon, a cat breed that grows quite large. They can be as large as some dogs and small children! Kefir’s owner, Yuliya from Russia, says that Kefir is now 1 year and 9 months old. He clocks in at about 26.5 pounds, a hefty weight for a cat. Apparently, Maine Coons typically keep growing until they are about 3 years old so Kefir won’t stop at this size!
