Maine Coon cats are one of the most popular cat breeds in the US, which is fitting since they’re also one of the oldest natural breeds in America.
Also called “gentle giants,” Maine Coons are big, gentle, intelligent, good-natured goofs who remain kittenish throughout their lives.
Maine Coons are known as the gentle giants and possess above-average intelligence, making them relatively easy to train.
They are known for being loyal to their family and cautious—but not mean—around strangers, but are independent and not clingy.
Maine Coons are the largest domestic cat breed. They’re big boned and muscular, with males weighing up to 18 pounds. Maine Coons can be up to 40 inches in length and come in 75 different color combinations. They’re also called the American Longhair.
