Meet Lupo the giant 30 lb. Maine Coon cat.

"He's also extremely cuddly and doubles as a purring blanket in winter," said Lupo's human mom via reddit.

Lupo was the size of a "typical" cat at the age of three months.

"I'm 4'10", but he is still a pretty big boy," his human mom added. "He's actually not quite done growing yet. Lupo's almost three, and Maine Coons generally finish growing at five. He's got time to become even more fluffy."

"(Maine Coons) also happen to be the largest breed of cat, not counting Savannahs. They are long-haired, but that insulation works both ways- keeps the heat in in the winter, and keeps it out in the summer. They are wonderful!

"Not only do you get a lot of cat to love, but they are amazing loyal, playful, and are generally your buddies from day 1."

Lupo is a big boy!

"He follows me from room to room, and I know when he lies on the floor, stomach up, he actually wants belly-rubs."

"He loves getting his belly rubbed, and even flops down on the floor, purring unexpectedly."

He has a thick fluffy coat and a personality like a canine.

The big kitty follows his mom around the house, and jumps on her lap for cuddles.
