MAINE COON CATS ARTICLE Minimize

          The Maine Coon is a unique cat with beautiful markings. This enormous kitty originated in the state of Maine. They were originally bred for their mousing talents, but came to be known for great pets as well. The Maine Coon is the most popular breed right after the Persians. They grow to be one of the largest cats, with males weighing from seventeen to twenty-five pounds, and up to forty inches in length!  They are muscular and broad-chested, with large, oversize paws referred to as snowshoe feet. They have large, tufted ears, long thick tails that help with balance, and heavy, three-layer coats that keep them nice and warm. Their head is medium-wide, with large eyes that are widely set.

            These longhaired beauties come in colors of white, black, orange, blue or cream in solid, bicolor, and tortoise shell patterns, with the brown tabby being the most common.  With their thick coats, they do need to be brushed twice per week. These cats normally have no health concerns and grow up to be very sturdy and strong. The Maine Coon has a gentle, easy-going disposition and a very loving nature. They enjoy water, and will sometimes get into the bathtub or dip their paws in their water dish. They are especially good with children, and they get along well with other animals, making them a perfect choice for large, active families who also enjoy dogs.

          The Maine Coon is a very unique cat breed. In fact it is named after the state of Maine and has been named the official cat of the state. The Maine Coon is thought highly of, and are excellent mouse catchers. These cats are built very strong and sturdy and are made to survive harsh winter and varied season of the northeast region. Their coats have three distinct lengths. They have long furnished tails that they strut around proudly, and often surround themselves with for warmth and protection. The Maine Coon is super sweet and very intelligent.
