Ivan Der Riese. 10 mo old

By: Norma Follstaedt in Butler, PA


Ivan the king

Ivan Ivan

Ivan is a rough and tumble "little" boy who has a real sense of humor and keeps us laughing.

He is around 18# at 10 months, and still growing. We definitely have fallen in love with this breed.

The Care And Keeping Of Your Maine Coon Cat
The Care And Keeping Of Your Maine Coon Cat

The Care & Keeping Of Your Maine Coon Cat: It's hard to describe the love between a Maine Coon and their family. I know you understand! With such special family members often come special, breed-specific questions and concerns. Your loving Maine Coon is very unique, both physically and in purrsonality.


The Dutch Queen

By: Patty in Los Angeles, CA USA

Her ladyship, Sakia was born in the city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

Our family acquired her while we were living in Amsterdam after I was transferred there for my job. We were overrun with mice. After they ruined our Christmas morning by eating through the boxes our pastries were in.

We loved her so much that we went back to get her brother. Now they live with us here in California and we bless those mice for leading us to find these wonderful cats!!!

Mew The Maine Coon

By: Danelle in South Africa

Mew is 11 weeks old and just loves attention! She hops like a bunny when she runs away playfully and she always rolls over so that you can scratch her fluffy tummy.

She loves to watch movies on mommys chest and sleeps on daddys back. The moment she is comfortable she will start moving her paws, digging her nails in the blanket, prrrrr until she falls asleep and stretch her body in the strangest positions.

We love her so much! :)

Tnor, The Hill and Valley King

By: Jason in Oregon


Tnor Tnor Tnor Tnor

He is the mighty 11 pound (12 counting belly) Tnor. He likes to talk to you when he's not napping or chasing shadows across the wall.

Catnip is his vice, and social protocol requires the licking of beards and the nibbling of earlobes.

Loki Pawtooth

By: Heather in Melbourne Australia


Loki Loki

Loki is a two and a half year old classic brown tabby. I love his perfectly symmetrical markings. He's always ready for cuddles with mum and dad or his brother Thor and sister Siggy.

Loki loves hair-ties and has a large collection stashed under the lounge suite along with pens and bookmarks, etc. he also enjoys having his photo taken and will happily pose for family and visitors alike.


By: Carrie Davis in MN


little Einstein

Einstein Einstein Einstein

Einstein is a adopted part coonie from CA. We simply marvel at how big he is still getting (His birthday is 5/31). He's not quite a year old.

He's filling up spaces more everyday, and we often find him upside down and bent in the most awkward of poses. He makes us laugh, and we sure enjoy him as part of the family.

Judah- he sure is growing

By: Leanne in Hamilton NZ


Big baby Judah

Judah Judah

Thought I would send in an updated picture of our gorgeous "Judah", he featured in the February album and since then has been doing a lot of growing.

He is now 5mths old and weighs in at around 5kgs!! His favourite place to relax is at the top of his kitty tree although as he grows he is going to find it hard to fit.

He has an amazing ability to leap in the air and spin around and catch things. His favourite toy is a mouse on an elastic string. He spends ages chasing it and when he catches it he proudly walks away with it in his mouth and hides behind the curtain.

I am sure he is going to be an amazing hunter as he has already started bringing in field mice as presents.

Loki - Full of Mischief

By: Cheryl in Melbourne, Australia

We got Loki when he was 18mths old from a breeder it was love at 1st sight. He has the most beautiful golden eyes.

He lives in the Granny Flat with my teenage son as I have a 16 year old White Russian, Cleo (with tortie colouring) who really does not play well with others.

We gradually started bringing Loki into the house for short visits to get them used to each other which seemed to be working when on one visit Loki got up high on a cabinet and knocked things down (which wasn't a big deal), but a very heavy jar fell and must have hit his back hip which unfortunately broke, so the poor baby had to get the ball joint removed altogether.

While he was on the mend my cat went to the granny flat and we kept Loki in the house so I could monitor him and also give medication when needed.

Loki would actually tip his head and open his mouth for all his medications - I've never know a cat quite like him. He has recovered but we are back to square one with cat introductions.

I just think it's so cute how he just chirps away at Cleo while she growls, hisses and carries on. It just doesn't faze him at all. I love everything about this breed.

Dr John Dee

By: Gemma in Ipswich Suffolk UK


John John John John

He is a Red Silver Shaded Tabby. He is such a handsome boy and knows it!! John Dees favourite toy is a red fish and loves doing flips trying to get it.

He will not sleep on the bed if his Daddy is here but will come and lie next to his Mummy when he is away. John Dee keeps her company if she is feeling poorly.He likes to sleep ontop of the tortoise castle keeping watch over his brother George.

He has two fur sisters Suzuki and Twinkle and during the day snuggles up with Suzuki in the little room with a giant crocodile soft toy. He loves his cat tree but gets a bit naughty when a the top and likes to swipe people as they walk past.

He is only a little over a year old and loves going outdoors and catching insects- he is only allowed out with Mummy. He is going to get a new sister at the end of May a Silver Mackerel Tabby.

Timmie L of the Bay

By: Becky Burciaga in Fair Oaks, CA
Timmie loves to pose

Timmie's name sake is Tim Lincecum of the S.F. Giants (we live in Northern California)...I picked her up from the breeder and brought her to her new home the day after Tim Lincecum pitched a No-Hitter in June 2013...besides that, Timmie's two litter mate brothers, Marco and Buster, also have Giants' players names, so even though being a girl, she needed a Giants' player name too.

Timmie is truly the epitome of the saying that a Maine Coons is a dog in a cat suit. Not only is she so very out going, friendly and playful, fetch being just one of her favorite games, but she is a pro at the fist/paw bump and head to head butts. She loves my grandsons, getting down and playing with them whether they are building with Legos or the Erector Set, or when playing video games on the iPad.

If a cat could be an Empath, I would have to say Timmie truly fits the description of one. It's been nearly 12 years since I lost my 20 year old son in a car accident. Even after all this time, I will still occasionally experience a breakdown over my loss and it doesn't matter where in our home she is, Timmie will either hear me, or sense my need, and come to provide comfort. She'll crawl into my lap and stay with me until the sadness has passed. No words are needed, she again seems to sense that her job is done and she'll go about her play as if nothing happened. There are times when she'll also "just know" to stick close, and will follow me from room to room, sleep next to me, which is not something she normally does...she has her own sleeping havens, away from my bed.

Timmie loves to be outside, (preferably in the front yard where all the action is) but knows it's only while on her leash does she get to go out...unless it's in her catio in the back...there she can lounge in the sun while trying to be sneaky and eat the leaves from her two legger mom's lilac bush, or even better, the maiden hair fern!

Kelimcoons Chloe Grace

By: Dunja in Goffstown, NH

Chloe Grace

Chloe in her full winter coat

Chloe Grace Chloe Grace Chloe Grace Chloe Grace

Chloe is a 5-year-old brown classic tabby MC. She gets a beautiful thick long coat in the winter. Check out her unusual feet... she has light long strands of hair over her toes!

She is a real sweet girl and slightly shy, but as soon as you take out the toys she is always ready to play. In nice weather she has access to a outdoor cat yard, which is completely fenced in with cat-safe fencing.

This way she can enjoy the outdoors while staying safe and protected. She has 2 Maine Coon 'siblings', Candy Cane and Murphy, and another brother who is a DMH.

Milo Time 2 yr old Golden Boy

By: Sherri Hingson in Lake City, Fl, USA


Milo's Photo Session

Milo Milo Milo Milo

He Turned My Hubby Into A Cat Person: Milo adopted us 2 yrs ago in 2013 when he was just 5-6 mths old.

He belonged to our neighbor who was a single mom with 5 boys aged 3-10. My hubby was sweeping the carport and he came over to help. He then decided our childless place was a relaxing quiet place.

The neighbors gave him to us when they moved 3 mths later because he stayed with us more than he stayed with them. I did not know what a Maine Coon looked like, only heard of the breed.

A family member cat person told me this year that he was a Maine Coon. I looked it up and sure nuff, he had ALL the characteristics of a Maine Coon except his ear tip tufts which are very tiny & few hairs. You could say non-existent. He is a clown and keeps us in stitches laughing. He does almost everything everyone else said about their Coonies.

He is an awesome back yard mole eliminator. I love to observe him laying out in the open backyard watching and listening for those boogers. So patient.

We trained him to a cat radio collar (PetSafe system)icon to stay in our short fenced 3/4 acre back yard because we could not bear loosing him on our very busy rural suburb road. We have lost several cats in the past to cars.

He knows when the collar is not turned on and usually just hops the fence to sit & wait at the carport glass door and then gives us that Nah Nah look when we let him in. I am amazed at his agility and the heights he can jump for his large lumbering size. He loves our 2 Doxies and the mini Doxy loves to bathe his face and ears with her doggy tongue and he holds onto her around her neck and they take turns bathing each others face.

My husband is retired and is home a lot and every day when I get home, my hubby has a funny story to tell me about what Milo did and he tells it while laughing. He entertains my hubby & me so much, I could not imagine our lives without his silly nilly antics.

He was a big hit at Pet Smart, riding around in the child seat of the cart, laid back, taking it all in without a care in the world.

And, yes, he is a flopper. Flops down in front of you for a belly rub. Hubby called him Flopper for a long time instead of Milo until we both realized he kept growing and growing and getting bigger and bigger. Now hubby calls him Fat Boy. He is 17 lbs of solid silly floppy hairy Coonie and we just adore him. He is our first Coonie.

Boo-- Mr. Hollywood!

By: Jackie in Jackson, NJ


Boo at 8 weeks old

Boo Boo Boo

Boo is gorgeous, intelligent, and so loving! That's why his nickname is Mr. Hollywood!

He was a tiny kitten rescue. The manager of Petco said "You mark my words.... you have a Maine Coon there!"

So hard to imagine at the time, but the rest is history! Recently Boo turned 3 on April 12th, the day after my son's birthday. My son got the golf clubs, and Boo got the box-- everyone was happy!

Coonie in a basket

My Marley

By: Annette in Linesville, PA USA

Marley is a big part of our family. As you know, our Coonies are somewhat human.

He understand what I am saying and talks back to me. He was born almost 8 years ago in a wood pile near my sister's house.

He had 4 bothers and sisters who were all eventually adopted out. Mom and one sister is still in the family. Mom is a regular orange striped tabby but half of the siblings have the Maine Coon gene. Isn't he handsome!

Sensational Sabastian

By: Sandy in Tuxedo, N.Y.


Sabastian Sabastian

Sabastian is our sensational half Maine Coon kitten. He'll be a year old soon and has brought nothing but joy to the household! I've never experienced such a wonderful gentle feline soul who wants to be around everybody.

The time of day I particularly enjoy is in the morning when I am just getting up. Sabastian is let out of the crate and suddenly he is up on my chest purring and making his bed while saying good morning.

I'm sold on Maine Coon cats whether full bred or half they are such a joy to be around!!

Another Cat Called Loki

By: Mary Elizabeth Walsh in St. John's, NL, Canada
Three Month Old Loki

Loki seems the purrrfect name for a Coon Cat! Our step-daughter brought this beauty home last summer when he was 6 weeks old.

He originally came from a litter of "barn cats". As soon as I saw him I knew he was a MCC. His temperment also gave away his breed. He is a pure delight to watch chasing his toys, attacking the dog (all in fun, of course!) & just naturally getting in trouble.

He can be affectionate when need be & loves to be groomed. He is now 9 months old & getting longer & heavier every day. He is a little devil & we enjoy his every antic.

His tail is almost as long as his body, fluffy & full. He also won't stay still long enough to get another picture but I'm trying & have my camera close by all the time just in case the moment arises. I'll keep you updated on this little (I should say "big") imp.

My Girl, Bobby-Jo

By: Kelly in Cannock, Staffs, United Kingdom


Bobby-Jo Bobby-Jo Bobby-Jo Bobby-Jo

I re homed Bobby Jo from a friend who couldn't look after her anymore. I already have 3 cats but she settled in straight away.

She has the most beautiful temperament and chirp to die for, she's taken over the house and she knows she's a princess! She's 4 years old this June and she gets a lot of attention from the neighbors.

My Beautiful Girl

By: Diana Watt in Nelson, New Zealand


Soraya Soraya Soraya Soraya

Soraya is around 4 we adopted her from Kjempecoons, as a retiree.

We have water in a bowl in the bath as she loves splashing it and one of her favorite hiding places is on the windowsill behind the curtain.

From outside you can see a whitish tummy and legs in the air poking out above the window surround. One of the coolest things about her is how she comes when called like a dog - but a lot faster.

She doesn't appear to be interested in hunting anything bigger than a cicada - which both she and Lilly (the Birman) consider to be free cat toys.

I upsized a cattree using a fencepost as a support and she often sleeps there - normal cat trees weren't big or strong enough.

Maybe Why They Are Called Maine Coon..?

By: Dennis & Tina in South Dakota


Garvy Raccoon Garvy & Friend

Garvy is our 2 year old Maine Coon. Last night he popped up to look out the window and my wife noticed the outline of another animal on his back.

With all the types of camo and animals you might know what it would most resemble.

Lil' Handsome Prince (January, 2015) Updated

By: Teri Northup in Midland, Michigan


Prince's Toe fur

Prince Prince Prince Prince

This is an update to January, 2015, when I shared his rescue story. Handsome Prince is growing more fond of pouncing and running. He loves to hide under the various items draped on chairs, couches, even his furniture and wait for me to walk by.

He pounces on my toes or jumps up with his white paws thrown wide to claw me - but he doesn't make contact. I know he loves to hear me squeal as he runs away. I just love this 10 month old kitten.

There are some pictures to share of his long hair in all of the many places and even a picture of him looking regal. Don't be fooled though, he will fly up and run off without even thinking about it. Our home is his playground and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Best Cat Ever!


Potter Potter Potter Potter

My Maine Coon Cat (mix?) is Potter. He is now about 6 years old.

He is definitely the sweetest snuggliest cat I have ever had the pleasure of caring for. He loves to snuggle up on my chest, knead into my neck (sharp claws or not) and drool all over.

He even got a report card from the boarding place with a remark of "Best Cat Ever!". So now I know it really is true and not just my biased opinion. :)

Does My Kitten Have MC In Her?


Kitten Kitten Kitten Kitten

Hi everyone,

I recently got a kitten who looks and acts like she may have some MC in her, but definitely not full. I am new to the Maine Coon breed but know of them and have been researching them over the last little bit. However, I do know the likeliness of her having some in her is slim but I feel there is more of a chance considering where I live.

First off, I do live in a smaller city with little towns around, mostly everyone considers themselves to be "country folk". There is a major issue with people not spaying or neutering their animals here and there have been MC and Siamese mixed kittens being given away in the past. The kitten I got was from the outskirts of a small town that is vey much country area.

So on to my kitten, I got her for free from an ad I saw. I met up with the owners to pick her up, I am not sure of her parents as I never saw them, nor do I have any information on them. As far as I am aware she was an only kitten as well because she was the only kitten in the listing.

My kitten's personality is unique, I have never had a kitten that acts the way she does and I have had cats my entire life. She is very outgoing and affectionate. I first got her for my cat and dog, my cat is a 3 yr old, medium hair domestic, and my dog is a 3 yr old Akita/Shepherd. My dog loves cats, he prefers them to dogs and acts like a giant baby with them. My cat is very timid so I wanted another kitten to help bring him out of his shell. The first day I got her I kept her in a bedroom to let her get used to me and my husband before I introduced her to the cat and dog the next day. I didn't want to overwhelm her and she had never been around dogs before. The second day she was doing great so I introduced her to the cat, as soon as she saw him, she instantly ran over and started to play with him. He got scared and left, so I brought the dog in for a quick meet and greet. The dog was very excited and couldn't stop sniffing her. She just sat there and let him do his thing. She eventually got a little scared so I let the dog out.

It only took the kitten a couple days of little introductions like this before I let her out to roam the house. Her and the dog instantly became best friends.

She is very active but more cuddly. She will sleep with anyone that is sitting down, stranger or not. She has to be as close as physically possible. She especially loves to sleep on chests and curl her body up around your neck.

She will try to squeeze under the other cat's stomach as he sleeps and the same with the dog. When she is hungry she will push her food dish around and make as much noise as possible until she is fed.

She also will follow everyone around like a dog. If you are at the door putting your shoes on, she will run over and stare at you while you do it. She also likes to climb in the dogs toy box and play with the stuffed animals that are bigger than her. She will carry those around and also loves playing with empty water bottles.

She is very sociable with everyone that comes over, unlike my other cat who hides. She is the centre of attention and very intelligent. She already knows her name after only having her for 3.5 weeks.

As for her looks, she has the shaggy coat, long body, tufts of fur on her ears, and she has tufts of fur between her toes. I have never had a long fur domestic before but have known a few and she looks different to me, but I wanted some other opinions. I have asked on other cat forums and no one has responded so I thought I would take a shot on here. It doesn't matter to me if she is or isn't, I love her either way, but I am curious.

Thank you for taking the time to read my "novel" and I appreciate whatever opinions I get.

PS. I do know there are enthusiasts out there who will be offended by my question and think it's outrageous, so I do apologize to anyone like that who reads this.

Tess My Beauty

By: Lesley in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

One of my distant neighbours had Tess but unfortunately her two children had developed a cat allergy.

I was looking for a kitten and when she told me about this problem, I offered to have Tess. She is now 9 months old and weighs 3.920 kilos.

She follows me everywhere, loves to play with water and 'talks' to me with strange chirpy sounds. Her fur is beautifully silky and she has a typical long coon tail.

She also has longish white belly fur and britches. When standing, her paws are domed with tufts and her eyes are gold/green. Is she a Maine Coon or a mix?

Lily and Sirius: Could my cute little rescue kitties be Maine Coon mix?

By: Memory in Oregon

Lily and Sirius

Lily at 4-6 months (not sure how old they are, vet estimated they were around 4 months when I first got them)

Lily and Sirius Lily and Sirius Lily and Sirius Lily and Sirius

These are two of the CLUMSIEST cats I have ever had! They get so wrapped up in what they are doing that they fall off the bed or the couch.

They are both super affectionate, and my boy kitty talks A LOT. They have little ear tufts, but they have really big tufts of fur between all their little toes.

They both have a lighter under coat than their top coat. Lily's tail is very fluffy, when she walks with it straight up some of the hairs fan out, she looks like a little peacock!

Sirius' paws are already looking really big and they are just now nearing about 11 months old according to my vet (they were rescue kitties brought in by a couple who said they found them near their barn, so we don't know how old they are).

They're really sweet, getting really big, and they look kind of like Maine Coons, but I'm not super familiar with the breed so I don't know for sure.

Yoyo our yoyo cat. Is he a Maine Coon or part Maine Coon


Yoyo is my daughter's cat she adopted from a pet shelter.

He is a big goofy 6 year old male with lots and lots of fur, fluffy big tail, fur between toes and ears and big eyes. Soooo Cute.

When he was a kitten he wasn't very graceful and kept having slight balancing trouble. We took him to the vet and he laughed, he said Yoyo's tail was so long and big it was throwing him off balance and that he would grow into it. He has, but it was kind of funny and he was a ding bat so my daughter named him Yoyo.

He has always been a clown. He waits by the front, back & side door for hours for us. When I drive home he hears my truck and comes running from the back yard to the front to great me. He likes to follow us from room to room.

He loves to roll over onto his back and have his tummy rubbed, he also sleeps that way. He is not crazy about water, I think because someone had thrown him into a pool when he was little as punishment. But he does drink a lot of water.

We have always said we think he thinks he is a dog.

I had never even heard of a Maine Coon Cat until a few days ago when we had a garage sale.

Yoyo kept coming out and greeting everyone and saying hi. Over the course of the day I had three people ask me if he was a Maine Coon Cat. I didn't know what that was, so here I am trying to find out if our Yoyo may me a Maine Coon Cat.

Princess Purr

By: Michelle in Jefferson, NC

Princess Purr

Princess Purr Princess Purr Princess Purr

She is an extremely vocal cat especially when she wants something.

She does have the ear tufts but not as extreme as some cats, she also has a lot of fur between her toes. At 1 year old she weighed just over 11 lbs. She is also very long.

Some things that make me think no is she does get sick of the kids and search out a quiet spot, she does not like to be held, she likes to be petted when she wants to be but you better not hold her.

She really reminds me a lot of a Chow dog so not your average dog.

I Think My Rescue Kitten Is At Least Part Maine Coon

By: Linda in Troy, Ohio, US

Missy on her

A friend of mine, on seeing Missy's picture said she thought she was a Maine Coon, so I researched and she looks very much like some of the cats on this site. Her personality certainly fits the bill! So here is Missy, see what you think.

Fuff Fuff

By: Marjorie Healey in Carterton, New Zealand
Fuff Fuff

This darling adopted me. And several people remarked that he looked like he is or has Maine Coon in him.

Is Ana A Maine Coon Mix??


Hi! We got our kitty from a woman who had a Maine Coon already, but said Ana and her sister were from a shelter.

I think she looks like she could be a mix. Her personality and big, looong tail make me think she could be.

Either way she's the best cat I've ever had and I've had lots in my life. Her nickname is Doc McFluffins! What do you think??


By: Nikki in Ireland


Lilly Lilly Lilly Lilly

Lilly along with her sister Tiger were abandoned outside the house of a woman known to take in strays.

They were both just 4 weeks old and very weak when I decided to take them. Tiger was unfortunately hit with a car close to her first birthday but she was huge for age and showed a lot of Maine Coon traits.

Lilly is still going strong and is almost 3 now but is much smaller. She weighs 6 pound but looks bigger due to her fluffy coat. I have added pictures of both at different ages but they must be Maine Coon mixes?!


By: Yvonne in Hooksett, NH USA


Tazz Tazz Tazz Tazz

I think he is part Maine Coon, he has all the personality traits and his muzzle is square and his fangs are long and he has a very fluffy mane and tail.

Also he needs attention 24/7 and gets under foot all the time, he likes to play fetch,he does the most intelligent things that I have ever seen a cat do.

We always swear he thinks he is a dog. He never hides when strangers come in my house, infact he is rubbing his head all over them. He knew we had a Christmas gift under the tree for him cause he was searching for it(no cat nipp either).

Every time I open a package he thinks the item is for him,and he sometimes just looks at you with this intelligent look I think if he could talk he would say something to me when he does that, and I swear he understands English because he knows when we're talking about him and he obeys my commands, like no.

He loves laying on his back and the fur on his tummy is like down feathers, its sooo soft. He has long fangs(and a foot fetish) cause his fangs are always scratching my feet when he nuzzles it, it hurts! He is such a sweet cat. We love him.


By: Brett in Maryland


Oliver Oliver Oliver Oliver

My partner and I were fortunate to find Oliver by chance. One of my mother in laws neighbors found him wandering by the highway behind their house and started feeding them.

Cat lovers themselves, they wanted him to find a good home but couldn't keep him. We did not want a cat (we are dog people) but once we laid eyes on him, and received a hug from Oliver, we knew we had to keep him.

I have never had a cat that was so affectionate and boy you talk about a vocal attitude. He loves to nuzzle in your face and hug people. Never shies away from anyone although when he wants alone time he can tell you with just one look.

We attempted to find his owners but as he wasn't chipped it was difficult. He was already neutered and house trained, has a full set of claws/talons and has never scratched anything other than the carpet. We couldn't be more fortunate to have him. Did I mention I think he is a beautiful cat, his markings are wonderful and fluff of hair around his neck that you just can’t help but play with.

Now on to why I think he might be part Coon. He does have some of the attitude traits but not all. He is affectionate without a doubt and vocal to say the least.

If he wants something he will politely walk up to you and yell his demands. The first night we brought him home he had no reservations to perching on my chest and falling asleep, just like we had him since he was a kitten.

Oliver has no desire for toys, if it is a human operated toy (feather on a stick, etc.) he will look at you with an expression that asks who are you trying to fool. I have tried many toys with no luck even to the point of buying a laser pointer, I hate laser pointer toys, and he would not pay it any attention. He will however play with us when provoked and you can see the playful kitten come out in him, especially if there is wrapping paper involved.

His looks, I feel, have similar features, his ears do have tufts at the tips but they are shorter and long tufts coming out of them. He does have the eyes, they are big, green and convey what he is thinking. While he’s not a large cat he is of nice size, he is solid, well-proportioned and has some weight to him. His paws are big and have the tufts of fur coming out, my partner, for some odd reason wanted to trim this, I told him he was crazy. He has a big fluffy tail that is constantly in and elegant motion and is constantly wrapped around him.

Sorry this has turned into such a long rant, but when you have a cat and not children they turn into your child. As I said in the beginning he is more or less a stray to us, we have no clue who his parents were so I am interested as to what others might think. Our vet isn't sure what he is. So what do you all think?
