The Maine Coon is the largest breed of cat. Other breeds include Ragdolls, Ragamuffins, Chausie, Savannahs and American Bobtails. Each city is different as far as allowing you to keep what are considered "wild" animals on your property. But most cities are wising up and banning them. If you wonder why, catch "Fatal Attraction" on Animal Planet sometime.

Norwegian Forest Cats ("Wegies")and Siberians can all get pretty big. As for color, Maine Coons come in all the colors of your typical domestic cat. NFCs also come in a variety of shades. I'm not so sure about Siberians. The Savannah is a very large cat, but some cat registries (most notably, the Cat Fanciers' Association) will not recognize hybrid breeds. I see Maine Coons and NFCs a lot in cat shows, and not all of them are that big. With Maine Coons and many other "big" breeds, there is often a considerable difference in size between males and females.

i worry very much about your reason for asking this question. unfortunately in many areas you would be allowed to own a large/wild cat with a lisience but not necessaraly with the knowledge experience or suitable habitat for such an animal.even if the area you live in will allow for ownership of such an animal i would ask you to refrain from trying to purchase one unless you are in a position to house the animal in a manor compareable to the top breeding zoos or safari parks it would be unfair on the animal and down right dangerous for you your family and your neighbours.
