About the Breed

Maine Coons are the largest domestic breed. Despite their size the Maine Coon cat is extroverted, sweet tempered and playful. They are known as the gentle giants of the cat world. More like a dog, these friendly cats get along well with people and other animals.  They enjoy the company of their humans and will show interest in what ever you're doing. 

Maine Coons possess a rectangular body shape and are slow to physically mature; their full size is normally not reached till they  are three to five years. The body is solid and muscular, which is necessary for supporting their weight and the chest is broad. They are also known for their beautiful cascading tails, large tuff ears, and shaggy coats.

Fun fact, it is thought that these cats were brought into existence when six Turkish Angora cats reached Maine abroad the ship of Marie Antoinette, who was attempting to flee France during the Revolution. Once on land, these Angora cats went on to breed with local short-haired cats and created the Maine Coon of today.
