What is Maine Coon Cats?

Maine Coon Kittens

Maine Coon cats are the largest in the world and the oldest breed in the United States. They have a lifespan of 12-20 years. Maine Coons are large in size, with females reaching up to 18lbs and males up to 25lbs! They have dense fur, relatively small heads, square faces, large straight ears with broad bases, and large eyes in green, golden, and copper colors. Their noses are medium-long and lion-like, and their muzzles are square. Maine Coons come in hundreds of colors.

Maine Coon's limbs are thick, round, and long, with densely furred, strong paws, their tails are thick at the base and more furred at the end. The word "coon" in Maine Coon means raccoon, perhaps people named them this because their thickly furred tail resembles that of a small raccoon.

Maine Coon cats have been registered with CFA, ACFA, FIFe, TICA, and all associations worldwide. The first Maine Coon won the TICA championship in 1979.


Maine Coons have a gentle temperament, are close to people, like to sleep in remote, quirky places; they like to be alone, can withstand harsh weather, and are skilled at catching mice. Maine Coons can make a chirping sound like a bird, which is very pleasant to hear. Maine Coons have a gentle temperament, love to cuddle, love everyone, have low energy requirements, and can adapt to any family.

Maine Coon kittens

Maine Coons get along well with people and make good pets. Maine Coons are large in size, so people affectionately call them "gentle giants", they can also serve as guard cats in the 19th century, but of course, they are just pets now. Maine Coons were exhibited as skilled mouse catchers at agricultural exhibitions in the mid-19th century and were quickly recognized as an independent breed. We are very grateful to those old breeders who have achieved this breed.
