Maine coon was generated in North America. More than 250 years ago, in the harsh climate of Maine; with short summers and very snowy winters, there were these amazing cats. Common legend was that the Maine Coon was the result of cross-breeding of a domestic cat and the raccoon. Not true of course. In fact, the ancestors of the Maine Coon are longhaired cats, imported by the first settlers from Scandinavia and the Baltic States. The natural look of the Maine Coon formed the rigors of life on the American continent, where only the strongest survived in the difficult conditions of the wild.

Due to the characteristic of brushes on their ears and their "tiger gait," Maine Coon resembles a small lynx or jungle cat, but unlike their carnivorous relatives, are very friendly.

 These cats have a luxurious wool and impressive size; the Maine Coon is considered one of the largest breeds of domestic cats. Although the average weight of the Maine Coon male is 7-9 kg and female - 5-7 kilograms, they make a lasting impression, and it seems that they weigh much more.

 Maine Coons are very hardy, active and get along well with children and other pets, but at the same time shy and delicate. Maine Coons love to sleep in strange and peculiar positions and places.

CARE

Care for them does not require much effort; (once a week comb out). They love to play and perform a variety of tricks.  You will never find two animals that sound the same. This breed is equally adapted to life indoors and outdoors, but the ideal habitat for them can be a private house, with a well equipped place for walking.

 The Appearance of Wool

In an adult Maine Coon their coat have three lengths. They have a lovely thick undercoat as well as longer guard hairs. This makes the cat extremely soft to the touch and allows them to keep warm. Over time they develop a third, outer layer coat. This coat is long and rough than normal guard hairs. Thanks to this protective coat, even in snow and rain the Maine Coon does not get wet.

The Maine Coon observes seasonal growth undercoat with their mane and pants. However, these cats do not require special care and are ideal for those who love long-haired cats, but do not have time for daily combing.

 Head

The Maine Coon has a large enough head with large, intelligent eyes. It is decorated with a long expressive mustache. Very often at the ends of the ears are more long hair, they form a brush, and indeed are not a mandatory feature of the Maine Coon, but it is highly desirable in this case.

 Body

This breed is inherent with a long rectangular body with a broad chest. They have a long massive tail with a broad base. Hair on the tail is much longer than the body.
