What Are Maine Coons Like as Pets?
Maine Coons are great pets. I’m not biased, honest, they really are. They are social, friendly, and have personalities to match their size.
Here are some of the characteristics that Maine Coons are known for:
Size – Maine Coons are famous for being one of the largest domestic cat breeds, and holding the record for the largest cat. On average, male Maine Coons are around 13-18 lbs, and females are 8-12 lbs.
Chatty – This is a pro for most owners, but a con for some. Maine Coons can be pretty vocal, so be prepared to be told when it’s time for food, when you need to open the door, and some other things.
Curious – Like most cats, they have a curious nature. The difference being, as large, heavy cats, they can do some damage when exploring places they shouldn’t be!
Lovable – Who doesn’t want a lovable cat, right? These big fluffy fur balls are one of the most loving breeds, often happiest curling up next to you while you sleep, on your lap, or wherever else you are.
Fun – Best of all, they’re loads of fun. From playing for hours, to fussing them on your lap, it’s always fun seeing and interacting with these gentle giants.
How Much Does a Maine Coon Kitten Cost?
This is always hard to answer as there are a lot of factors that affect the price of a Maine Coon kitten.
Generally speaking, however, you should expect to pay somewhere in the region of $500-$1,500. This can go up a lot for rarer colors, better lineage, more demand, and so on.
How Much Does a Maine Coon Cat Cost?
If you’re looking for an adult Maine Coon, whether to adopt one in need of a home or just because you don’t want a kitten, they’ll typically cost less than a kitten.
You can find some for free, although some basic rehoming fees might be required. Or, you can expect to spend a few hundred bucks.
TICA and CFA Certifications
You may have seen some breeders saying they are TICA and CFA certified. This is an extra stamp of approval that they registered their cats and are maintaining a high standard.
Here’s what these organizations mean:
The International Cat Association (TICA) is an organization that was founded in 1967 with the primary purpose of upholding high standards of breeding for cats.
They require extensive education from their members and are involved in various activities such as showing, judging, and organizing World Championships.
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) is the world’s premier cat organization and the largest registry and show organization for pedigreed cats.
The CFA recognizes five long hair & six shorthair breeds of cats as well as three types of longhaired kittens. Only registered purebred cats are allowed to participate in any CFA show or event.
Caring for Your Maine Coon
The most obvious thing about Maine Coons when it comes to care or ‘maintenance’ is that they have a lot of fur.
Some more than others, but they’re a long-haired breed. If you want to avoid having hair all over your home, and some nightmare knots and tufts in their coats, you’ll need to brush your Maine Coon daily.
Before you sigh, it’s really not that difficult. You’ll need to keep a good brush or a brushing mitt nearby, and just simply spend a few minutes a day brushing your cat.
If you do this from an early age, your cat will be used to it and even enjoy it. It’s pretty much some free attention and fussing anyway, so it’s a win-win.
The next main consideration is exercise. Maine Coons need exercise, and if they don’t get it they’ll end up doing some destruction around your home – I can vouch for this.
Ideally, they need to have access to the outdoors. If this is not possible, then you’ll need to make time to play with them and provide some fun cat furniture like trees.
Other than playing, fun, and brushing, you just need all the basic essentials most cats need.
This means making fresh drinking water available at all times, feeding them good cat food designed for their stage of life, a few treats here and there, and some nice quiet spots to sleep.
