What Are Maine Coons Like as Pets?
Maine Coons are one of the best breeds for a busy family. They are social, loads of fun, curious, and enjoy human interaction.
Here is a look at some of the typical characteristics of a Maine Coon:
Size – There is no mistaking that Maine Coons are large cats. The males weigh around 13-18 lbs, and females are 8-12 lbs. They’re big cuddly softies though with a mild temperament.
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 – If you like vocal cats, Maine Coons are happy to have a chat. They’re not as vocal as Siamese, but they’ll let you know when they want your attention.
Curious – They do have a curious nature. My Maine Coon was always hunting, getting high up into trees, into boxes around the home etc.
Fun – I’ve never met a Maine Coon owner that did say they’re a load of fun. From hours of playtime, to just being able to interact with these gentle giants. It’s never a dull moment (except when they’re sleeping).
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 want an adult Maine Coon, you’ll pay a lot less than a kitten. In fact, some are free or close to free if you find one in need of a home at a shelter.
You can expect to pay a few hundred bucks depending on where you find an adult Maine Coon. It’s an admirable thing to do though, as there are always cats in need of a loving 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 largest purebred cat registry and the only global organization that represents all breeds of cats.
TICA was founded in 1967 and currently has more than 190 member associations, with more than 20,000 members in 90 countries.
The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) is the largest, most experienced, and most respected cat registry in the world.
The CFA has become the single source for all things related to cats and cat fanciers. It has a membership of over 165,000 people worldwide who own purebred cats or subscribe to their periodicals.
Caring for Your Maine Coon
Maine Coons are long-haired cats. Some have longer hair than others, but there is no avoiding the fact that you’re going to have to put in a lot of time grooming them.
If you absolutely do not want a cat that requires brushing, Maine Coons are not for you.
That said, it’s not a huge issue. Keep a brush handy, it can even be a brushing mitt, and give them a brush daily when you have a moment.
If you get them into a routine of being brushed from an early age, they’ll enjoy it and roll around in excitement taking it as being playful or some fussing.
In addition to this, Maine Coons love playing. The more time you can make to play with them and help them burn off some of their explosive energy while they’re kittens, the better.
Being large cats, exercise is important to this breed. Most of which can be achieved by letting them outdoors, and with some large, sturdy pieces of cat furniture.
Outside of brushing and exercise, all they really need are the basic things all cats need. Plenty of quality food and fresh drinking water, some nice warm, quiet spots to sleep in, and of course, the acknowledgment that they are in charge!
All that’s left now is to find your new Maine Coon, so good luck, and here’s to a fun-packed future!
