Maine Coon Cat
Origins and history of Maine coon
Behavior of Maine Coon
Mixture of rusticity and elegance, this cat with the strong build does not fail to impress. Yet, the education of this cat is very simple.
At once mild and wild, the Maine Coon possesses great qualities. We read his kindness in his eyes.
Dynamic and player, he also knows how to stay calm. He will curl up on his master's lap. Hungry for petting, he purrs rather than meowing.
He knows how to make himself heard and will not fail to let you know that he is waiting for something. Very easy to educate, the Maine Coon must be used to other animals from an early age.
Maine Coon Color
Soft and long, Maine coon hair can be declined in different dresses. The most popular are tabby and tabby mixed with white.
The other major categories of colors are uni-coloured, turtle scales, silver, smoke and particolours. Like all long-haired cats, Maine Coon requires regular brushing to remove dead hair and avoid knots.
