HOWDY ALL,  This cat breed is one of my favorites as my wife and I shared space for 18 years with a MAINE COON CAT. What a sweet heart she was. She traveled with us all over the country in our RV. We were full time RVers, so she never knew anything other than living in an RV.

Maine Coon Cat Personality

No breed has a monopoly on love and affection, but there’s got to be some good reason that the Maine Coon has clawed his way up from near extinction to the prized place of America’s second most popular breed (according to the CFA’s registration totals). Maine Coon fanciers say that the popularity is due to the breed’s large size, intelligence, luxuriant coat, hardy disposition, and devotion to their human family.

maine-1While Maine Coons are devoted, playful, and loving to their chosen humans, they can be reserved around people with whom they’re not familiar. Given time, however, even the most cautious adapt. As befits a former seafarer, Maine Coons are fascinated by water, perhaps because their thick coats are water-repellent and won’t become annoyingly soaked as easily as a thinner coat would.

 

 

Maine Coon Cat Breed Traits

One of the largest domestic breeds, male Maine Coons weigh in at 12 to 18 pounds, while the females fall into a ‘petite’ 10 to 14 pound range. Slow to mature, the Maine Coon takes three to four years to fully develop. Although brown tabby is the most common color and pattern, Maine Coons come in a wide variety of colors.

The heavy all-weather coat, shorter on the shoulders and longer on the stomach and britches, makes the cat appear larger than he really is. The texture is smooth and silky rather than cottony, so the coat doesn’t mat as easily as the coats of some long haired breeds. Breeders usually recommend a twice-weekly combing with a good steel comb.
