Maine Coon Cats AN EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER

THE GENTLE GIANT

Maine Coons are known as the gentle giants and possess above average intelligence.  They are known for being loyal to their family and cautious around strangers, but are independent and not clingy. The Maine Coon is generally not known for being a "lap cat" but their gentle disposition makes the breed relaxed around dogs, other cats, and children. They are playful throughout their lives, with males tending to be more clownish and females generally possessing more dignity, yet both are equally affectionate.  Many Maine Coons have a fascination with water and some theorize that this personality trait comes from their ancestors, who were aboard ships for much of their lives.  Maine Coons are also well known for being very vocal cats. They are known for their frequent yowling , trilling, chirping, and making other loud vocalizations.  The Maine Coon is the largest breed of domestic cat. On average, males weigh from 13 to 18 lb with females weighing from 8 to 12 lb . The height of adults can vary between 10 and 16 in and they can reach a length of up to 48 in, including the tail, which can reach a length of 14 in and is long, tapering, and heavily furred, almost resembling a raccoon's tail. The body is solid and muscular, which is necessary for supporting their own weight and the chest is broad. Maine Coons are slow to physically mature; their full potential size is normally not reached until they are three to five years old, while other cats take about one year.  Wikipedia
