What Are Maine Coons Like as Pets?
Maine Coons are one of the most adaptable breeds that can fit right into any family, other pets and kids included.
Here are some of the characteristics these gentle giants are known for:
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 have a soft, social, and loving personality. Although heavy, they love curling up on a lap and receiving some fussing.
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!
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
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.
