Vincent lives in Russia with his humans, Andrey and Anastasia. He is already a big boy, despite still not turning a full year. This isn’t a surprise considering the Maine Coon is among the largest domestic cat breed out there. Male specimens can weigh anywhere from 13 to 18 lb. while reaching up to 16 inches in height and 38 inches in length.
Since adopting Vincent, who was named after the main character in the TV show Brassic, Andrey and Anastasia noticed he has been attracting a lot of attention from strangers. People were impressed not only by his size but also his silky black fur and piercing big eyes. Some even compared him to a black panther.
This, coupled with Vincent’s energetic nature, prompted his humans to create social media profiles for him. They started sharing photos and videos of the cat’s adventures and quickly realized he was destined to be a star.
Nowadays, each video of Vincent gets thousands of likes and tens of thousands of views. He is also building a presence on Instagram, where he recently surpassed 11K followers. Check out more of his clips below.
