Maine Coon Cats

The Maine Coon, also known as American Longhair, is a breed of domestic cat with a distinctive physical appearance and valuable hunting skills. It is one of the oldest natural breeds in North America, specifically native to the state of Maine,[2] where it is the official state cat.

Although the Maine Coon's exact origins and date of introduction to the United States are unknown, many theories have been proposed. The breed was popular in cat shows in the late 19th century, but its existence became threatened when long-haired breeds from overseas were introduced in the early 20th century. The Maine Coon has since made a comeback and is now one of the most popular cat breeds in the world.

The Maine Coon is noted for its large bone structure, rectangular body shape, and long, flowing coat. The breed can be seen in a variety of colors and is known for its intelligence[3] and gentle personality.[4] Health problems, such as feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and hip dysplasia, are seen in the breed, but screening methods can help to reduce the frequency of these problems

Although often quite large, they are totally nonagressive and will go out of their way to avoid a fight. My Main Coon actually stopped a fight between two of our indoor cats. They are extremely sweet and easy going. They usually never bite or scratch. I once read a comment that they do not do laps. The remark was that they are not your babies but rather your buddy. My two did laps. I had a female that was a licker. She slept with me, and I had to cover my face to keep her from licking it raw. Great for children and for every one. They do require some grooming as they have very long hair and may become matted. Any questions, see me at Nickycat.
