Fun Fact Friday: Barn Cats of Old ❀



Back in the β€œold days” when the Maine Coon breed was developing their distinctive traits and appearance, before they were a recognized breed, they were barn cats!

In Maine, if you had a big 'ole tabby toughing out the harsh winters in your barn who had a shaggy coat, bushy tail, and was a good mouser, you had yourself a β€œCoon Cat.”

In fact, here in Maine where I live, I've heard the term Coon Cat my entire life, used interchangeably with the proper name of Maine Coon.

Of course, now barn cats are barn cats and Maine Coons are preserved by breeders. But what an interesting history!
