Get ready to get hyped, crazy cat ladies. Hong Kong-based photographer Robert Sijka has come out with a series that shows just how majestic cats are by documenting the Maine Coon breed.
Maine Coons are the largest domesticated felines in the world, able to grow up to four feet in length. The breed is characterised by their gentle nature and their fabulous fur, which can easily be mistaken for a scruffy beard.
Basically, they’re kinda like a lynx, except that they won’t try to kill you.
Inspired by the two most beautiful black Main Coons – named Dolce Vita and De La Loo – Sijka set his lenses towards these particular kitties. Positioning the cats against a simple dark background, the photographer was able to capture the fine details – from the striking yellow eyes to the soft tufts of fur – that make these animals so beloved.
