The Maine Coon is known for its large size, easygoing temperament,
and rugged appearance, also known as the "gentle giant"
of the cat family.

Males weigh 13-18
pounds with some males exceeding 20 pounds
A Maine Coon's long
hair does not need much grooming. A weekly combing is usually
all that is required to keep the fur in top condition.
The Maine Coon is
America's only native long-haired cat, well suited to withstand
the harsh New England climate.
