The Maine Coon is a very naturally hardy cat that is designed for colder climates.
Although a long haired cat their fur is pretty much low maintenance, it only requires brushing about once a week. Their coat is glossy and water resistant, being longer over the chest, belly and tail, which serves two purposes. Firstly, being to keep the body warm when in the snow and secondly, to give it a good ground spread to stop it sinking into the snow when lying down. The large tail provides a natural blanket on freezing cold nights and they have their very own snow shoes as they have furry tufts underneath to keep their paws warm. Their ears are also tufted to give them protection from driven snow.
They are known as the gentle giants. They can weigh between 15-
They are very good natured cats and very intelligent. Don't let the fact that they choose to fool around mislead you, they are definitely not foolish!
