Maine Coon Cat
THE MAINE COON CAT IS ONE OF THE LARGEST BREEDS OF CATS
The Maine Coon Cat is one of the largest breeds of cats. It is typical for a lot of the males to reach 20-22 pounds. This is just about double compared to the average cat size of about 10 pounds. The Maine Coon Cat is a popular cat and I have treated a fair number of them over the years. They are extremely strong and agile with those hairy front and hind-limbs of theirs! They come in all sorts of colors. They may be large for a cat but the Maine Coon Cat is a gentle animal. Of course, they were bred in the state of Maine!
An excellent breed to have around young children, the Maine Coon Cat is a solid, durable pussy cat that can stand up to any rough playing from a toddler! Grooming is not too difficult with this breed. It just requires frequent combings and combings. It is a healthy, long lived cat with very few medical problems. You will not be disappointed with this breed! Learn more about the Maine Coon Cat at Animal Planet’s® Cat Breed Selector.
