Maine Coon cats can display some funny, silly cat habits and behaviors. Every Maine Coon, with his or her unique personality, knows exactly how to get our attention!
They are sometimes called the clowns of the cat world. Mine certainly are.
They are funny cats, silly cats, with some really strange cat habits! What about yours? Share below!
One of the most well known quirks of Maine Coon cats is their love of water play. Or water bowl sports, as one Maine Coon owner refers to it!
This funny, silly cat behavior consists of a Maine Coon cat "pawing" in his water bowl, scooping out the water like he's trying to dig a hole, and then making lovely footprints all over the house!
No one knows how to nap like a big Maine Coon Cat. He doesn't merely curl up on a cat bed and take a catnap. No sir. (well, ok, sometimes he'll do that too!)
These funny cats have some silly cat behavior when it comes to sleeping. They sleep upside down, belly up, showing off their mounds of fur.
Did we mention that these cats are clowns? Just pull out a cat toy or some catnip to see totally funny silly cat habits and behaviors!
Some of the best cat toys are lasers or wands with something intriguing at the end. Before long there will be an acrobatic show like none other! Pouncing, jumping, flipping, call it Kitty Olympics!
If you have a Maine Coon, you know how unique and different they are. You know you have a one-of-a-kind cat!
Since we're on the topic unique traits, I want to mention our E-book, The Care and Keeping of Your Maine Coon Cat. It's full of info custom-tailored to the specific needs of these big boys and girls. Check it out, and review the table of contents to see for yourself!
Many cats have very particular, funny habits when it comes to mealtime. Each is unique. Whether it's a favorite food, or location, these cats really know what they like!
One Maine Coon owner, Rosanne, comments that her two Maine Coons by the names of Buster and Missy must be served on the washer, clean plate, and never un-fresh food, please!
Many cats will only drink water if it's running, dripping, in their favorite dish, or in a favorite spot such as the kitchen sink!
Every Maine Coon Cat is special and unique. Their unique, individual personality will shine through every day. It seems like every cat has his or her own super silly habit.
Our Alice has a couple silly cat quirks. She likes to chew on heads. That's right, don't sit on a couch when Alice is on the back of it! Actually, it doesn't hurt. She checks out your hair, and then gives your scalp a couple of firm bites. Weird, huh? Also, she is obsessed, and I mean obsessed, with feather dusters.
If there is a feather duster to be found, even if it's four feet long, Alice will drag it up and down the staircase like a panther whose just caught it's prey. Thump, thump, thump.
