The Maine Coon is known for its size! They are larger than regular cats, weighing up to 25#! They are a “talkative” breed. You might hear them “chirp” or “trill” to communicate with you.
They are very sweet-natured and gentle. They are very smart, they can be trained to do tricks and come when called. The Maine Coon has a heavy, silky coat that does require quite a bit of maintenance.
Regular combing and brushing is required to keep them mat free. They come a huge variety of colors, mostly solid colored but can be shaded, smoke, tortoiseshell, tabby, or bi/tri-colored!
The Maine Coon has a life expectancy of 13-15 years on average.
