Breed Spotlight – Maine Coon

Facts

The Maine Coon is a longhair breed commonly found in the United States. This highly adaptable cat is a gentle giant that worked as a mouser in ships and farms in the 19th century. Maine Coon cats are long, have greenish, gold, or copper eyes, and weigh from 8lbs (for females) to 12lbs and more (for males). Although the males are larger than females, both genders have broad chests, thick legs, large heads, and tall ears. They are muscular and heavy-boned cats who work well in keeping rodents in our homes or barns at bay. Their silky coat comes in different colors such as white, cream, golden, brown, blue, black, tortoiseshell, and blue. The color pattern may be one solid color, shaded, or a combination of two or more colors. Their coat sheds a lot, so that is something to look out for.

Characteristics of the Maine Coon

  • Life Span
Maine Coons have a lifespan of 9 years to 13 years.
  • Behavior
These kitties need moderate-to-high attention every day. They are not needy lap cats, but they will follow you around and are happy when you have time for a cuddle. They are skilled mousers, so your home will be rodent-free. Even when there are no rodents, they sharpen their skills by chasing and grabbing toys or small balls. They also love playing in the water, so be prepared to have company when taking a shower or washing dishes!
  • Temperament & personality
Maine Coons have a sweet temper despite their large size. They are gentle giants who adapt to the environment very quickly, so long as there is space to run around. They get along with any two-legged and four-legged creatures. They are smart and playful kitties that learn tricks quite quickly. From kitten-size to adulthood, expect some silly, playful behavior. Watch out for a light chirp to tell you that it’s time for a game of chase!
  • Interaction with children
They are great with children. Maine Coons are affectionate, and they enjoy the attention of your children. They will go along with child games such as dress-up or car rides without a fuss. They are also amiable to cat-friendly dogs.

Taking care of a Maine Coon

  • Diet and exercise
A controlled diet is very crucial for the Maine Coon because they can become overweight very quickly. Exercise is also needed, so keep them engaged with perches, trees, and lots of running room. Play with them too because they enjoy interactive games and use lots of puzzle toys to exercise their brain.
  • Grooming
Brush their fur daily to prevent tangling and use a grooming rake to smoothen the coat. Trim their nails, wipe their eyes (with separate cloths) to remove a discharge, and clean the ears with a cloth dipped in a solution of 1 part warm water and 1 part cider vinegar. Bathe the kitties regularly and brush their teeth daily or a couple of times a week.
  • Health
Genetic health issues among mixed-breed and pedigreed kitties include hip dysplasia, polycystic kidney disease, spinal muscular atrophy, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Ask your breeder for a certificate that confirms your Maine Coon is negative for the HCM gene.
  • Litter box
Keep it spotlessly clean. It also ensures that their coat remains clean. Also, keep the kitties indoors away from diseases from other cats, dog attacks, and dangers that lurk outdoors.   Maine Coons are big and gentle felines that thrive around people’s company but still exhibit some independence. They are great with children and other pets, and only need your attention and space to run around. Do not take it personally when they knock things down as they move around. They can’t help their large size. If you are looking for a sweet-tempered and loving cat, there is no match for the Maine Coon.
