Maine Coon Facts

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.

Many colors and patterns are allowed in the Maine coon cat breed

Even eye colors can vary from green to gold to blue, with some white Maine coons presenting two different-colored eyes.

Their voices -- a distinctive chirping trill -- also set them apart from other breeds

Although they rarely “meow,” when they do, it sounds like a soft, high-pitched voice that directly contradicts their size.

Everything you need to know about Maine coon cats includes a warning about their weight

Because of their naturally large size, many breeders recommend high-quality food to control weight gain. Between ages five and 10, switching to a low-calorie diet is recommended, especially for indoor cats.

Shrouded in mystery, the origin of Maine coon cats has been the source of legends

Many breeders today hold that Maine coon cats are the product of mating between preexisting shorthaired domestic cats and longhairs introduced from overseas by seamen or brought to America by the Vikings.
