Maine Coon cats can boast an average weight of 13-18 pounds. They average 10-16" tall and up to 48" long including the tail! They are sometimes even mistaken to be bobcats because they are so large....Now that's a big cat!
They are playful, social and affectionate and enjoy spending time with their owners. So in case you couldn't decide between a dog or cat... you can have both!
Since their winter-made fur coats, Maine Coon's fur tends to be water-resistant and they are actually good swimmers. Not your average cat.
Maine Coons are a naturally occurring breed of cat from the United States, and for a long time Maine Coons were the country's most wanted breed.
They actually are born in a variety of colors and patterns. Some are smokey, cream, mackerel and even tortoiseshell.
