16 Maine Coon Cats That Look Like Majestic Mythical Creatures June 22 2017, 20 Comments

Cats were once thought to be mystical, magical creatures. They are the focus of many superstitious belief, cast as witches' familiars, omens of misfortune, a cure for blemishes and even harbingers of great fortune; and in Ancient Egypt, cats were actually revered as sacred animals. 

 

While these beliefs might not be held in modern times, photographer Robert Sijka discovered a way to capture the majesty, and magic, in our furry feline companions. 

 

 

Sijka focuses his work on Maine Coon cats as he and his wife breed them.
