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 (TICA) is the world’s first and largest all-breed cat registry.
In 1967, a small group of dedicated cat lovers met to form a small organization. They shared their love of cats, and it wasn’t long before they were planning for their first show in 1968 in the city of Chicago, Illinois.
The Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) is a non-profit organization of cat fanciers who are dedicated to the study, preservation, and promotion of felines.
This organization has a membership of over 165,000 people worldwide who own purebred cats or subscribe to their periodicals.
Caring for Your Maine Coon
Before you bring a Maine Coon home, you need to know what you’re letting yourself in for. Don’t worry, it’s all good – but there is a little work involved.
The two main things you need to be aware of is that Maine Coons require a good amount of exercise and regular grooming.
If you can give them access to the wide outdoors where they can climb, hunt, and explore, this will pretty much help them get all the exercise they need.
It also helps to have some strong cat furniture designed to withstand these beasts. And of course, they love to spend time playing with you.
For grooming, it’s advisable that you give them a quick brush at least once a day. This will help stop knots and tufts forming in their coats.
It will also greatly reduce the number of loose hairs floating around your home, which for me personally is something I’m willing to put in the time to avoid.
Exercise and grooming needs met, Maine Coons just require the basic stuff all cats need. This means, a couple of nice quiet spots to sleep, fresh drinking water, plenty of good food, and the occasional treat.
That’s it! Pretty simple, and you have yourself a big fluffy, lovable friend that’s going to provide endless entertainment for you.
