Principal Features of the Maine Coon
Maine coons are big, loving cats that enjoy spending time with and playing with their owners. Although owners of Maine coons recognize and value these cats for being affectionate family pets, this cat breed is mainly noted for its enormous size—up to 40 inches in length.
Don't let their imposing size fool you—deep down, Maine coons are soft, gentle giants who love to spend time with their humans. They very much expect to be part of the family and aren't big on personal space or privacy. These cats are delighted at the thought of following you from room to room as you go about your day. Though Maine coon's are definitely affectionate and social, they're not usually lap cats. This breed typically prefers to hang out beside you rather than on top of you—which can be a good thing, considering their size. Maine coons are extremely intelligent fun-loving, and will keep their kittenish playfulness well into old age. They're not an aggressive breed, will tolerate being held, and cuddled. They are patient, kind, and great with children.
Maine Coon cats originate in Wiscasset, Maine in the United States. Their lineage is surrounded by mystery and myths. One myth claims Maine Coons are part raccoons.
