Average Life Span Of A Maine Coon
We would like to know what the life span of our Maine Coon is. Bubba is approximately 10 years old.
The "technical" answer is 12 - 15 years, which is pretty good in feline years.
There are a variety of health concerns that can come up around this time, or not. Taking great care of a cat up until they reach their golden years is vital. Be sure to visit our page on elderly cat health problems, too.
There are also many, many, cats who live beyond this range. Some go into their high teens and a few enter the twenty range. This is partly thanks to the great care that Maine Coon owners take of their cats. Just keeping cats indoors extends their life expectancy significantly. That, along with regular vet visits, and top quality cat food, increases the life span of a cat.
Generally speaking, Maine Coon cats are hearty, healthy cats.
So, at only ten years old you could be looking at lots of good years left with your Maine Coon cat!
