What Are Maine Coons Like as Pets?
Maine Coons are known for fitting in with families of any size, kids and pets included. These gentle giants love social interactions, they’re cuddly, friendly, and a lot of fun.
Some of the key characteristics of Maine Coons are:
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.
Loving – They are huge, there is no mistaking that. But they are also known as ‘gentle giants’ because they’re so soft and playful.
Chatty – Be warned, most Maine Coons enjoy a conversation. They’ll let you know when they want feeding – which can be often – when they want to be let out, etc.
Curious – Curious, mischievous, whatever you want to call it, Maine Coons will explore, hunt, and get themselves into trouble at times.
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?
The price of a Maine Coon kitten varies depending on the demand, color, parents, and some other factors.
Typically you can expect to pay between $500-$1,500 as an ‘average’. It’s something you should discuss with a breeder as they often offer different prices for different litters.
How Much Does a Maine Coon Cat Cost?
I think we should all consider adopting an adult Maine Coon if we’re able to. There are always adult cats in need of a loving home.
You’ll pay a lot less, too, if budget is a concern. Most rescues and shelters will ask for just a donation or a small fee to cover their costs. It’s a rewarding thing to do, adopting a cat in need of a home.
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 is a club for all who have an interest in cats and their well-being. Not only does TICA sponsor educational opportunities, but it also offers registry services for purebred cats.
It’s one of the largest and most respected cat registries in the world because it’s open to everyone. All you need is an interest in domestic felines and a willingness to abide by TICA’s Code of Ethics.
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) is an international organization of judges, cat show exhibitors and enthusiasts devoted to the natural beauty and healthy breeding of pedigree cats.
The CFA was founded in 1907 by Mrs. H.J. Willard and a small group of friends wished to promote “the scientific breeding of pure-bred cats” according to the Standard Of Excellence (SOE) set forth by good breeders for many decades before them.
Caring for Your Maine Coon
It’s not fair to call Maine Coons high maintenance cats, but at the same time, they’re not exactly low-maintenance.
There are two main considerations when adopting a Maine Coon, these are; can you provide them with enough exercise, and will you be able to brush them daily.
On the exercise front, if you can give them access to some rural outdoor space, this should be enough for them to burn off all their explosive energy.
It’s also advisable that you have some strong cat furniture for when they’re indoors. Also, they love playing so be prepared to get down and roll about with them.
For grooming, you’re going to need to brush them at least once a day if you want to keep their coats in tiptop condition.
It’s not as much work as it sounds. Just keep a brush next to their food, and give them a quick brush every time you’re about to feed them.
If you brush them from an early age they get used to it, and it’ll make your job a lot easier.
Apart from these two things, as long as you provide fresh drinking water, plenty of tasty food, the occasional treat, and a couple of nice comfy warm spots to sleep, you’ll have a perfectly happy Maine Coon on your hands.
