This giant Maine Coon cat loves to cuddle every chance he gets. Meet Tihon!

“He likes to sit in my arms all the time. He doesn’t like to be alone, and always follows me wherever I go, even the bathroom,” says Moscow-based Tihon’s human mama.

“He is very quiet. In Russian ‘Tiho’ is quiet, hence his name. He purrs quietly and lovingly. His mission is always to be near me,” she added.

This delightful kitty, who has an unusual pair of eyes, one blue and one hazel, waits by the door every day to greet his human when she gets home from work. He instantly jumps into her lap for some serious cuddle time.

At six months old, Tihon was already larger than a regular adult house cat.

As you can see he is a gentle giant with a soft heart.

Tihon is now one year-old but he still has a lot of growing to do as Maine Coon cats typically stop growing when they reach 3 – 5 years of age.

Even though Tihon has such an impressive physique, he doesn’t use this in his favor because he lets the Scottish Fold kitty that lives with him be the boss in the house.

It seems like Tihon is only interested in giving love, and he does that extremely well!
