All of our cats are HCM N/N or are screened by ultra-sound, FeLV and FIV negative.The Maine Coon is one of the largest breeds of domestic cat, known for its high intelligence and playfulness as well as its distinctive physical appearance. The breed is one of the oldest natural breeds in North America and originated from New England, specifically native to the state of Maine (where it is the official State Cat), making it America’s first indigenous show cat. The Maine Coon cat is known as “the gentle giant.” Maine Coons have medium-long, dense fur, with longer hair, or a ruff, on their chests similar to the mane of a lion (which is why the breed is sometimes humorously called the “Mane Coon”). Their fur consists of two layers – an undercoat and an additional layer of longer guard hairs, which gives the breed their key physical feature. Maine Coons have long hair on the backs of their legs (called pantaloons or britches) and between their toes which helps to keep warm in the cold. They also have bushy plumed tails and broad, angular heads, squared-off muzzles and wide-set ears topped with tufts of fur. Their tails can be so bushy that the Maine Coon has earned the nickname the ‘tail with a cat attached to it’. Most Maine Coons keep their fur in good order without the need for additional human grooming. While the Maine Coon may be polydactyl, having one or more extra toes on their paws, this trait is generally bred out.
