MAINE COON HISTORY
The Maine Coon Cat is the Native American long-haired cat and was first recognized as a specific breed in Maine, where it was named the official cat of the state. The Maine Coon cat evolved through nature's own breeding program developing characteristics by following a "survival of the fittest" evolution. Excerpts are from the Cat Fanciers Association website.
These gentle giant's characteristics all have a purpose and function. The Maine Coon cat of today is known for a sturdy, rugged appearance, which includes an uneven, shaggy coat of three distinct lengths and a long, well-furnished tail. They carry their tails proudly and use it to surround themselves for warmth and protection. They have large, well tufted paws to allow ability to walk on top of snow despite size and weight. Maine Coon Cats are intelligent, trainable and described as "dog like". They offer hours of enjoyment with their antics but can at times be "niele" (intrusive).
