The Maine Coon is a breed of domestic cat with a distinctive physical appearance.It is one of the oldest natural breeds in North America, specifically native to the state of Maine, where it is the official State Cat.
Generally they tend to be larger than other breeds, but not all of them are very large. They tend to grow *long* (as opposed to wide or thick), so that their true size is hidden beneath the long fur while they are seated or standing, until you see them stand on their back feet, or manually stretch t…hem out. They also tend to be more focal than some other breeds. (MORE)
The answer is Felis catus . All breeds of domestic cat has the same scientific name, including Maine Coons.
Maine Coons are carnivores. They eat fish, chicken, tuna, turkey in fact almost anything and milk but pet food are usually better for them. .
Yes a Maine Coon cat is real. even though they are very large they are in fact real. i have had my Maine coon cat (Evie) for 5 years. They are very large but very very kind.
Well Maine coon cats are very large and very fluffy. But when they are kittens it is hard to tell. but i can tell you that Maine coon cats are usually from a breeder and don't "run wild".
I have a Maine coon cat.She's black and has mood swings between when you mess with her,cuddle with her,or play with her.She's wild because we found her outside of my moms apartment.So if she's not wild then she really shows that she's wild.And she can climb and run very fast.That's how wild a Maine …coon can be.

Feed it,bath it,clean it's litter box,andtake care of it.Everything should be fine after doing that all the time.
To make sure you have a Maine Coon cat you can check it's forehead and if it has an M for Maine Coon then you have a Maine Coon. I hope I helped. alot of cats have M's on their forhead but main coons do. They are mostly long hair, they're feet are usually more stubby then most cats because their …feet work like snowshoes for winter. I think they have long tails too, if im not mistaken. My cat is part main coon. (MORE)
Maine Coon Cats can be outdoor cats. As long as you keep a collar or an id chip on them it will be fine. You will however, be dealing with sopping wet fur at times if it has rained. But without seeing the outdoors all cats breeds, pure or mixed will get annoyed. Even if you keep your cat on a harnes…s / leash at least let him outside. Maine Coon Cats will do no harm yet you might want to brush out its coat right after it gets back in. (MORE)
Maine coons grow to be about 20 to 30 pounds. Their height is usually 30 inches or less. A Maine coon bigger than 30 inches is regular. They grow to be about as big as a small dog.
The 2006 Guinness World Record Holder for Longest Cat is Verismo Leonetti Reserve Red (a Maine Coon breed cat), and is 48 inches tall from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail and weighs 35 pounds. He holds the record for Longest Cat. My kitty will beat him soon. Haha
My Maine Coon is only a bit over 12 lbs. but can stretch out in length from tips of toes on hind feet to tips of toes on front feet a length somewhere between 3 and 4 feet. However I find his most impressive trait to be the total calmness and confidence he has, it is as if he is totally convinced th…at he owns and is in complete control of everything in the world. In other words the world exists entirely for him. (MORE)
We had a white and black cat that was a Maine Coon. Maine Coons can come in a huge variety of colours, usually in the tabby and solid patterns. However, Maine Coons are never found in "colourpoint" patterns.
Most people think Maine Coons are fat, but it is mostly fur.Their fur is about 1" long.
No, the Persian and the Maine Coon are distinct breeds. A cat can, however, have both Persian and Maine Coon in its ancestry, of course.
if o Google you can see pics of a Maine coon kitten and they are pretty small so i would have to say a Maine coon kitten can be big but they are small
Yes, they shed. As with others animal, proper nutrition and grooming minimize problems. I have found, however, that my Maine Coons do not require the amount of brushing that other long hair breeds, such as Persians, require. That being said, they are so sweet and lovable and full of personality …that it is well worth having cat hair incorporated into the decor!! I have a half maincoon and she sheds but her fur stays within her fur so you need to brush them everyonce and a while. About 2-3 times a week. (MORE)
Yes. In Maine it can be very COLD. That's why there're coat is so long.
Maine coons, like all other cats, eat meat. They eat the regular dry/wet food that you would feed to any other cat.
It's unknown where they actually came from. There are rumors that they came to America with the Vikings, and that the Maine Coons descended from a group of pet cats that the French queen Mary Antoinette sent to Maine when she was planning her escape from prison. But most breeders seem to think that …the Maine Coons came with the colonists to America. (MORE)
Unfortunately not. However, don't let this stop you from having one of these gentle giants. There are many ways to reduce allergens in your home and allow for you to own a cat. 1 - Keep your cats indoors only. When they go indoor and outdoor, they clean themselves more often, shed more, and bring i…nside outdoor allergens. Most people are actually not allergic to cat fur, but are allergic to their saliva and dander that is in their fur. 2 - Keep your cat out of the bedroom and off the furniture. While we love our furry friends to cuddle up next to us in bed, it's hours of exposure to the allergens. Cat trees or cat condos are great alternatives to them being on your furniture. 3- Keep your cat groomed. There are anti-dander shampoos that help allergies and reduce shedding. Also brushing will help. 4 - Wash your hands after petting your cat. 5 - There are awesome meds now that are specifically designed to combat pet allergies. Ask your doctor which they would recommend you use. Good luck with your allergies. I've been allergic to cats all my life and own 3 of the furry beasts (including a Maine Coon). Plus I volunteer and work with them for hours each week. Cats and people with allergies can co-exist. (MORE)
It Is a carnivore. It eats meat. I have one my self and it eats cat food. He doesn't like non colored food. He loves meow mix and the 9 lives can food with the meat and stuff. Hope this helped!!
They are PRECIOUS! I own a big 20 pound male one, and he is so cute!
They used to be so endangered that they were declared extinct in the 1950s, after the introduction of the Persian in America. But the Central Maine Cat Club was formed to protect the Coons in the 1950s and now, it's the second most popular cat breed in the world! Sources: Wikipedia

One legend says that Maine Coons are the decendents of Marie Antoinette and that they were smuggled into America before she met her end in the guillotine. Another say that they were brough over on ships to catch rodents. Most belive that they are the decendants of Short-haired cats that mated with e…xisting long-hair breeds, after being brough to America on ships. (MORE)
We have no way of telling as there is no description or link to a photo of the kitten.
Maine Coons are a very large breed of cat, so only large predators would be able to hunt something as big as a Maine Coon. Large dogs, coyotes, wolves, anything that is big enough to eat a Maine Coon. Large birds of prey, if desperate enough, may be able to eat a kitten. .
No, Maine Coons can never naturally have short fur, and usually is longhaired or semi-longhaired. This breed has a very distinctive look, and is well-known for its long, flowing coat to protect it in harsh winters.
Dogs, coyotes, wolves, anything that is big enough to eat a Maine Coon. Hawks, owls, and eagles to- they would eat a kitten. Possibly an adult.
I have a cat that I think may be a Maine coon... I guess that it really depends on the cat if it can open a door or not
Maine Coon cats have a reputation for being vocal. They are, however, limited to normal cat-type vocalizations... they don't actually speak a human language.
I adopted mine at the Humane Society. They didn't identify him as a Maine Coon, but when I took him shopping with me at Pet Food stores many people asked if he was a Maine Coon. I looked it up, he seems to be. Never seen a cat so relaxed and calm.
Yes, Maine Coon cats are very unusually large cats, but they are also probably the calmest gentlest cats there are.
Maine Coons are unusually large cats, but unlike many breeds you cannot go by fur color pattern as they can have almost any pattern. Look for traits like: . extremely calm & relaxed . "trilled" meow . medium to long fur . fur between foot pads . a ruff . if you have several cats the Maine Co…on is often "Topcat" The absence of some of these does not mean the cat isn't a Maine Coon. For example mine does not "trill" his meow, but his brother who isn't a Maine Coon does. (MORE)
They are especially social and smart cats. Take the time to teach them to fetch and play other games. Mine loves to shower with me. You never know what he will think up next. Mel is eleven years old and I have loved every minute.
You can buy a Maine coon in any pet shop because they are cats and cats are the most popular pets of the world.
Yes Maine coons are big cats so they can eat many kinds of birds like pigeons,sparrows,budgies,lovebirds,parrots,hens including ducks.
Well i think wolfs eat them because wolfs are big dogs and German shepherd can eat a stray cat so maybe wolf can eat Maine coons.
U should keep it in a quite and cold place,they can sleep any soft and comfortable things like bean bags,baskets,pillows and sometimes they will come and sleep on your laps.
Its called Maine coon because it is originated in Maine part of north america and the coon part because they look like cat and raccoon mix.
If you mean by fur, then yes, maine coon cats have a functional fur coat to protect themselves from the cold winters of Great Britain, where they were originally found.
