Maine Coon Breed Info
Maine Coons are instantly recognisable as the largest breed of domestic cats. They have large, strong and muscular bodies to support their heavy frame. Their body shape is considered rectangular compared to the tapered shape of smaller breeds. They have large broad chests with a wider than normal leg stance.
Their iconic bushy tail is often described as similar to those of raccoons and squirrels. The Maine Coon fur coat is thick and heavy to keep the larger body warm during the colder months. Most Maine Coons have long-haired coats which are very soft and smooth, however characteristics differ between coat colors.
The length of hair differs along the body with most cats having shorter hair on the head and shoulders, longer hair along the belly, neck and ears. The coat is easy to maintain as the undercoat is lightweight, however it is important to note that molting will occur with the change of seasons.
Maine Coons posses many physical attributes that enable them to flourish in cold and harsh environments. The longer fur that is found on the underbelly is thick and water-resistant to enable the body to stay warm while lying in wet or frozen conditions. The large tufts of fur on the ear help to warm the thin wall tissue while in high wind conditions.
The bushy tail is used as a thermal seat to keep the backside of the cat off cold surfaces when seated. The tail is also used a wind breaker when it is wrapped around the face and shoulders.
Males can weigh up to 25 lb (11kg) and females up to 15lb (6.8kg) reaching a length from tip to tail of 40 in (100cm). The tail itself can grow to 14in (36cm).
The breed is considered slow maturing as full size is reached anywhere between the ages of 3-5 where most cats mature at age 1.
Coons can come in any colour found in other cat breeds due to generations of crossbreeding through domestic animals. Although physical stature and shape may depict a purebred Maine Coon, cats that posses colours suggesting cross breeding such as the Siamese patterns are not recognised by breed standards.
The classic Maine Coon fur colour is the brown tabby. All eye colours are accepted under the breed standards except for blue or mixed eyes, which are only accepted in the white furred Maine Coon.
