Details

The Maine Coon is the largest domestic cat breed and its size is one of its defining physical characteristics. The size of a typical Maine Coon is between 10 and 16 inches tall and up to an impressive 40 inches in length. These sturdily built felines usually weigh between 8 and 18 pounds and have muscular bodies with broad chests and solid legs.
As if their big-boned build wasn’t enough, the Main Coone’s ample coat makes these majestic animals appear even larger. Their long coat is silky and soft and short near the shoulders. Maine Coons come in a variety of colours and patterns. You can find white, cream, red, blue, blue and black Maine Coons, as well as brindle, bicolour, particolour, tortoiseshell, shaded and calico Maine Coons.
Other defining physical features are their large pointed ears, often covered with tufts of fur, their expressive oval eyes and their long bushy tails.
