Frequently Asked QuestionsAbout Our Coon Cats
The Maine Coon Cat is a large and very social family cat, having a well deserved nickname of “the gentle giant”. Often described as dog-like, the Maine Coon will follow their family members from room to room in the home always needing to be in view of the action. Some Maine Coons are even known to have a natural liking of water. Playful and intelligent by nature, the Maine Coon provides constant entertainment for themselves and their family members. Uniquely, a Maine Coon is animated and engaging with their family by vocalizing with various trills and chirps, rarely meowing. Maine Coons get along with other cats, children, and dogs if introduced appropriately at a young age.
The Maine Coon is the largest non-hybrid breed of domestic cat. A Maine Coon Cat that was the former Guiness World record holder of being the longest domestic cat measured 4 feet in length! Our current intact breeding male was over 20 pounds prior to his 1st birthday. A Maine Coon is slow to mature and do not normally reach their full size until 3-5 years old. Sterilized male and female Maine Coons will often weigh more than intact Maine Coons. It is impossible to predict how big a kitten will grow to be at maturity as genetics, nutrition, and proper care all play roles in the development of a cat. Currently, TICA reports that male Maine Coon cats average 13-18 pounds and females average 9-13 pounds.
In the best interest of the health of our breeding cats and their kittens we do not allow the public into our home just to see and touch our European Maine Coon Cats and Kittens. Kittens do not have fully developed immune systems and allowing the public in would put them at potential risk for outside diseases prior to having all of their immunizations.
Kittens are ready to join their new homes between 10-12 weeks of age.
We currently feed a variety of both dry and wet Orijen, Acana, and Instinct products. Your kitten will come home with a small bag of the current food they are eating.
We are currently utilizing the XL Tidy Cat Breeze system with unscented pellets and pads.
