Catsvill County cattery recently shared pictures of a litter containing 5 adorable grey Maine Coons, and it didn’t take long for people to start commenting on the fact that they all look sort of like little grumpy old men.

Maine Coons are definitely interesting cats to look at. Their faces very much remind me of the live-action Beast from “Beauty and the Beast.” What do you guys think?
