ACADIA OF THE LANDS AND FORESTS - Multiple folk tales agree that the Maine Coon cat came to the shores of the most northeastern state as a passenger on a boat. Some say Marie Antoinette sent the first breeding population from her prized pet Angora felines, which escaped on a boat that she missed before her demise at the guillotine. While unlikely, the royal story is at least possible compared to the genetic impossibility of the official Maine state cat being the offspring of a raccoon and a common house cat. This big gentle giant is this week's jigsaw.
