Maine Coon Cats


The Maine Coon Cat is an American long-haired breed, specially native to the state of Maine.

The most important features of Maine Coon cats are the head, body shape and texture of their coat.
With a head slightly longer than wide, these cats present a gently concave profile with high cheekbones.
Ears are large and wide at the base, moderately pointed, with lynx-like tufting inside.

Large, round and expressive eyes are their most distinctive feature.
Well-bred Maine Coon cats have a well-balanced, rectangular appearance.

Maine Coon cats have a loving, sometimes clown-like nature and often funny habits.
They try to be helpful to their human family by jumping into the center of activities.
Maine Coons love to chase objects and can be taught to catch and fetch.

Maine Coons usually enjoy a kittenish love of play well into adulthood.
Males, especially, are prone to silly behaviour.
Females are more dignified, but they aren’t above a good game of chase.
Not especially vocal, they make any requests in a soft chirp or trill.

Maine Coon cats are not overly dependent on their human family.
Instead of pestering you for attention, they will remain close by for companionship.
Not usually “lap cats,” they prefer to sit beside you instead of on top of you.
Maine Coon cats make great buddies for kids and generally socialize well with other pets.

This is a large cat. Males weigh from 15 to 25 lb (6.8 to 11.3 kg) with females weighing from 10 to 15 lb (4.5 to 6.8 kg).
They don't reach their full size until they are three to five years old.
