Diamond Girl is my 9 year old beauty

Deep thoughts

Deep thoughts

Diamond is my 1st ever Maine Coon cat and she is magnificent! I got her from a breeder on Long Island, so officially she is "Merlin’s Blue Blaze Diamond Girl"!

I have had (and still have Domestic short hair cats) for the last 40 years and several large dogs. I have been rescuing feral/stray cats at work and at home for 25 years.

Diamond is everything they say about Maine Coons, she’s family oriented and always wants to be near you if not on you. She is vocal when she wants or needs something, but Jett my black, domestic short hair is very chatty also.

I just retired and I worked from home for the last several years, Diamond always took advantage of a captive audience (1 picture shows her perch above my head while I worked).

Diamond is a delight as well as a large cat (she is 27” from nose to her butt, then her tail is another 16” long).

She came into a home with an 87 lb Shepherd mix, who had already grew up with my 2 domestic short hairs and my chocolate Lab, Yogi.

Lacey our beautiful baby

by Gloria
(Nova Scotia, Canada)

Lacey is very affectionate and quiet. Loves being hugged and kissed.

Amazingly, she understands a lot of what we say to her. At 11 years she has slowed down some but is very healthy at 14 lbs.

Our first Maine coon and we fell in love with her the first time we saw her. Will take as much attention as she can get. Loves her grass box on our deck.

My baby Maine Coon turned 1 in July. He is truly a wonderful family member.

He loves to play, he loves to cuddle and sleep in bed with us. His purr is loud. He loves watching the birds and squirrels from our living room window.

Sisters & Cousins

by Becky Burciaga
(Fair Oaks, CA)

Keeping track of the birds and squirrels

Keeping track of the birds and squirrels

Timmie (age 10) and Giselle (age 5) are not only sisters but also share the same Grandmother..

Giselle is three times removed, her grandfather and Timmie are first cousins.

When the girls are not viewing... from their heavy-duty cat tree... (due to her very svelte 22lbs, Timmie has tested the sturdiness of many cat trees over the years) the myriad of birds and squirrels outside the window, they love to snuggle together for their cat naps.

Both Timmie and Giselle love playing with their mama’s grandsons when they come to visit.

They've both been known to steal space on pillows and sleeping bags during sleepovers with the grand kiddos…and they both really love to play fetch and chase the laser light.

What the sisters love the most is to go for walks on their harnesses and leashes... or just sit on the front porch with their mama and keep watch over the little dogs that live close by... Timmie easily towers over most of them and isn't the least bit phased when one starts barking at her.

Ziggy Stardust Rocks The Coon Scene

by Heidi Roberts
(Cambridge WI USA)

Snoozing with Auntie Tallulah...

Snoozing with Auntie Tallulah...

Ziggy Stardust "Ziggy"(M) (02-23-22) is a ½ Maine Coon/ ½ DLH hybrid, adopted in May of 2022 from a private individual.

He is THE most chill cat we've ever had. Full of affection, playful, very responsive to his fur-parents and very socially outgoing.

He even greets strangers! His favorite toys are "found" toys - bottle caps, paper roll tubes, anything, really.

He likes to share his toys with his family and plays fetch, "find the toy/treat", chasing tennis balls, racing his aunts, uncles and sisters - not to mention his "dogfather" (our 8yr old male Boston terrier/Chihuahua hybrid; Marley).

He's also a cuddle-bug!But his best "trick" yet was teaching himself to pee on the human toilet!

A total individual, this one.

(Currently 19lbs at 15mos old.)

Tintin

by Nelson
(Nashville)

Just turned one. Tintin is still growing. As a kitten, he always stayed near us, slept in our bed, etc.

But nearing adulthood, he's become more independent, especially during "hunting" hours. Is this normal?

He's still affectionate; just not nearly to the degree as when a kitten.

He’s my first Maine Coon so I’m full of questions...

Tintin follow-up


by: Nelson in Huntsville AL (New)



tintin kitty


Tintin is 14 months. I love him like crazy. When do you transition to adult food?

I estimate he’s a teenager in people years. He’s just not cuddly anymore. Friendly, playful. But the loving, purring, cuddling kitten has become an independent teenager.

Please, I’m having a hard time with this. Does this breed typically return to being affectionate at adulthood? Or can this be a permanent change in the personality?

Is this normal?
by: Anonymous

At 1 year, he went from extremely cuddly to more independent. Doesn't want to be around humans as much. He definitely has his affectionate moments, but they're far fewer. He won't be held.

So....... Is this normal for a MC who's the developmental equivalent of a human teenager? And do they revert to being cuddly & snuggly after this "phase"? Or is this likely permanent?

affection
by: Anonymous

I have had 3 Coonies over the years, all males, one at a time. The first was about 10 months old when I got him -abandoned by my neighbor when they moved and he adopted me.

When he passed away, I knew I had to have another Maine Coon. Couldn't find one except from a cattery, so I got a 12 week old kitten. He lived past the age of 18.

My present boy, Furby, is now 12 and I adopted him when he was around 6, so I don't know how he acted when he was very young.

It has been my experience that as these guys get older they will be sitting in your lap more than they did previously. Here is his routine.... he will always want to be near me.

If I lay down on the sofa and take a nap, he will jump up on the back of it by my head and stretch out and sleep.

At the times when I sit in the recliner and watch TV, that is his time where he wants to jump into my lap and lay there. My other 2 acted very similar. It is one of the characteristics of Coonies to always want to be near you.

Riley, still affectionate and cuddly at 10 1/2!
by: Andrea

Our Coonie, Riley, is 10 1/2. We got him as a Rescue when he was 1 1/2. He has continued to be very loving and affectionate, sometimes, to the point of being "needy".

Although, he is not as interested playing with all his toys, he still loves to be held and groomed. He's truly a bed and lap Coonie.

Transition from Kitty To(?)
by: "PJ"

Maya will be12 months this August 19th. Up to last month, She would engage in multiple "zoomies" in the morning, rest awhile, then engage into some mild "zoomies" in the afternoon.

She would fetch play toys and then sleep until dinner time. The last few weeks she has become more independent, somewhat lacking play drive, but remains close to my wife and our 10 year old Tabby.

We have taken her to our vet with a clean bill of health. She does Chirp and Meow when she wants to be groomed.

Judging from other posts, this my not be totally uncommon.

Affectionate Maine Coon
by: Charles Dove

My Maine Coon, Sergiy turned one year old in July. He is still affectionate, but not as much as when he was a kitten. I miss that too.

He used to come and jump on top of me on the sofa while watching TV or reading. He would purr loudly and nuzzle up to me on my chest. He doesn't do that anymore and I miss that. Now he lays on the coffee table next to me... I think he likes the coolness of the glass top.

He does sleep with me at night. He jumps on the bed, purrs loudly and flops next to me. Sometimes he will come up and nuzzle my neck... sort of giving little kisses.

He is still a very sweet one year old. Loves to play and he does like his alone time too. I just let him do what he wants. And I appreciate the affection he gives.

Maine Coons are just great creatures!

Like Twins
by: Smokey Joe's mama

Tintin could be my Smokey Joes's twin. He's the same colors and markings, tabby.

Tintin's position is "come a give me some belly rubs!" Smokey Joe loves that position as well and once would bite us when we stopped rubbing but we'd yell so now he holds our hand with both front paws when we stop rubbing! Like 'don't stop!'

As far as affection goes only after I give him his 'delectable' does he show his love? by rubbing against my hand and 'washing' it.

He holds one of my legs when I'm reading or ready to sleep. After a pet to show him I know he's there he puts his head on one and relaxes. Those times his purring generator is activated. He's never there when I wake though.

OUR affection to him doesn't produce ANY purring anymore.

Another thing... he almost never vocalizes. If his bowl is empty he'll rub our ankles, or, if he can't get to his litter or food because someone shut the door, he'll do the same then when we look down at him he'll walk to the closed door.

The only time he vocalized loud enough for us to be sure he did was when I turned on the big vacuum with it's loud and powerful motor. Then it was more like YOW! of fright!

Other times his vocalizations sound more like an elongated hhmmnn or low squeek instead of meow. I've never heard him meow.

Tintin
by: Anonymous

I have a 9 year old Coonie. When he was younger, he would get up on the bed for cuddles, then stop for a while. He started doing this when he was about 1-2 years old. Now, he's getting pretty set in his ways, up on the bed for a nightly hour or 1 1/2 hour cuddle session.
He's never too far, he just likes a little extra space now.

This is my first Maine Coon too 😁
by: Anonymous

My Zulu was like that as well. He's still very loving and sleeps with me almost every night.
I have a question however....
Does Titan watch you alot? No matter what you're doing? Has anything changed in your life? Maine coons are extremely intelligent and have the ability, I think, to remember routine patterns. Zulu will be different towards me especially if something has happened or changed in "MY" routine.
This is just my perspective over the years and this is my first Maine Coon too!! 😁

Our 1 year old mc is the same way
by: Elizabeth Duncan

Our Barron turned 1 on Aug 6th and he is less cuddly than before. As he matures and still has a TON of energy, we make sure he gets plenty of exercise during the day.

He chases a laser and completes food puzzles for treats. This tires him out and slowly he seeks more affection. I make an extra effort to hold him multiple times per day dwhen he approaches me for 10-30 seconds until he wants to be let down.

I also feed him small portions near me so i can pet him and give affection while he dines. I talk to him when he is chatty and even mimic his trilling noises.

As he gets older, he wants more independence so create small short opportunities to bond. This will bring him closer to you. When he gets older, he will mellow out.

Aug 08, 2023
Tintin
by: Nelson

Thanks for your thoughts on Tintin. As a kitten he was so affectionate; we hope this is a temporary phase as he transitions to adulthood? He’s still affectionate but spends more time by himself.

Also, how long would you give kitten food? I’ve read 18-24 months?

Aug 08, 2023
Tintin
by: Bastet

Sounds normal to me. Cats are mostly nocturnal and they are predators.

One of my cats always goes "hunting" at night. She chases her toys around them makes a kind of howling noise to let me know she caught something!

Don't try to stop Tintin from "hunting." Try praising him for catching something for you. After I do this a few times, my kitty settles down (with me)!

He's going to be be a big one
by: Melissa

He's absolutely gorgeous. Love his paws so profound. If he's just 6 months old and he's that big..... I have a good feeling he's going to be one of those rare and extra special Maine Coons that get into the top largest category. I'm not thinking of the correct wording but he's definitely going to be a big one. I'm pretty sure they stop really growing after 2 but I could be short. He's got a lot of time for growing bigger. He's just amazing.
Sir Zulu is pretty big at 17 pounds last I checked and your Coon will outgrow Zulu by the time he's 2 years years old. Congratulations! Tufted, tufted, ears just perfect! Enjoy the time with him. 😁

Definitely Dog of the cat world. He growls whenever anyone comes to the door. Very protective of his home. At night he lets me know it's time for bed and very adimant about it. Loves to race me up the stairs. He always wins

Mutzzie is growing up.

by Camille Re
(Newton NJ)

A while back I sent in a photo of my cat Mutzzie, His cattery name is Bena Vida Multi Mozzarella. He was a kitten and I was planning on getting him very social and make him a therapy cat.

Well, Mutzzie is 8 months now and doing great. We plan on having him tested in a few months as a therapy cat and he also is my Mascot for my business.

I am a Certified Feline Behaviorist and he attends all my Behavior Seminars for Adults and Children. He loves to shake hands, give hi-fives and ring bells to entertain people.

I also just put him in a CFA Show under the Premiership and although he did not win because he was up against 3 other very mature Maine Coons and he just turned 8 months, he did manage to take a 2nd place in one show but more importantly he was not shy, entertained the crowds and judges.

He loves all the people and he actually had a great time. His personality came out beaming. He also is doing some ads for Feline Caviar cat food. He is such a ham!

I just wanted to say that I expect a lot more fun and exciting time with him. Getting a Maine Coon has checked off all the boxes for what I needed. For more on Mutzzie and his classes check out www.helpmeowtCFB.com

Barnaby and Jack

two silver maine coon cats



My two boys are from different litters and were born three days apart.

At the cattery, they were friendly, self-confident, and curious. Jack said "Meow" the second he saw me, and that was that.

Then Barnaby climbed into my lap and the deal was done. Barnaby is a silver tabby and Jack (aka Gigantor at the Window) is a smoke.

Barnaby (aka the little guy) is about 18 pounds; Jack was 21+ last time he was weighed, and I think he's bigger now. And when they stretch out, they can reach from side to side of a full-size bed. They are lively, healthy, self-confident and very social. Mostly. 😄

Real cat food
by: Anonymous

So when we got King Zo and Loki and took them for their 1st vet visit (our vet is also a close friend of ours) I asked a lot of questions about proper diet. Turns out there hasn’t been nearly as much science on cat food as there has been dog food, and unfortunately nearly all mass produced cat food is essentially dog food packaged in a different way. This doesn’t work well for cats because they are a Type A predator and WAY less omnivorous than dogs with a completely different digestive system and body chemistry. For example, even small amounts of carbohydrates in their food is bad for them, because their body can’t digest it properly, and they have a HUGE insulin reaction to it, comparable to feeding a toddler 10 candy bars from a small amount of rice etc in their food. When I learned all this I spoke again to my friend/vet, and he said something very simple, cats need muscle tissue, organ meat, a bit of bone, and the only carbs or veggies they eat is what’s in the stomach of the mouse. I decided to switch them to a completely raw meat diet, at 1st of chopped up cheap chicken cuts with a bit of liver and kidney and heart supplemented by probiotics. Almost immediately our cats temperament settled down, they go to the bathroom far less frequently, and it doesn’t smell nearly as bad when they do. However, grinding that fresh meat in a meat grinder every 3 days was a chore. So I found a California based company that sell a kitten mix of raw beef, chicken, organ meat, and a bit of ground up bone and small amount of egg. Comes in 2 lbs tubes like raw sausage comes in. My cats about about 6 months old, muscular, healthy, active, gorgeous coats, great temperament, and they weigh 11 pounds and 12 pounds respectively. We feed them 5 ounces of the ground raw cat food 3 times a day and they eat every bite. The company we found is called Lilly’s Advantage…lots of different mixes available, including without chicken for chicken sensitive cats. I’ll post a link below…whether you get your food from Lilly’s Advantage or prepare your own…I HIGHLY recommend not feeding dry kibble that’s been cooked 5 times, or even wet food that’s been heavily processed…feed them what they are made to eat, raw meat and organs…WAY HEALTHIER CATS!

We Aslan hates pate. After the process of elimination. The vet concluded Aslan is allergic to chicken, like apparently many cats are.

So then the challenge was to find something he liked and the consistency that he would like. So long story short. Merritt rabbit food (a huge hit). He absolutely loves it! It's in a 3 oz pouch. Chunky, but I take a fork and crush it so it's less Chunky. I hope that helps. Good luck.

the M on the forehead
by: Anonymous

Maaaaany cats have an M on their forehead, but that does not make them Maine Coons, it is just part of that coat pattern. Also there are Coonies who do not have an M on their forehead.

Black Maine Coon
by: Anonymous

I have a big black cat like yours, but since I can’t see an M on his forehead, how can I tell if he’s a Maine Coon?

Here's Looking Up at You!

by Barbara
(Sudbury, MA)


My name is Kitty. I am 13 years old.

I used to be an outdoor cat that went out on my harness with my owner but ever since that day when a fox came out of the woods and I accidentally got off my harness chasing birds my owner scooped me up and ran into the house.

I was so upset that I never want to go outdoors again. I am happy now being an indoor cat sitting on or near windows watching birds, bunnies and whatever else goes by outside!

I love following my owner around and being in whatever room they are busy in. I like paper bags, boxes and my cat tree which looks over the backyard.

My favorite food is Friskies in Gravy which comes in the pouch. My owner was very lucky to find me some. She is a good hunter like me. I also like a serving of Fancy Feast Petite Cuisine Morsels in Gravy in the late evening.

Riley at 10 1/2 and ever so handsome!


Riley adds so much joy to our lives!

We rescued him at age 1 1/2 and he has bee full of himself ever since! He's very talkative (especially when he wants to be brushed or picked up and loved) and he follows us everywhere.

He's a true lap and bed cat and loves to spend time on the screened porch watching all the wildlife, especially the possum family that visits every evening.

And, almost forgot to mention...he's a big Penn State U. Nittany Lion fan!!

by Gregory
(Chelatchie Washington)


We're very fortunate to have added two Coonies to our family last year.

Our male, Ace (Gigantor) and our female, Frisco (Bay).

They love to explore just about everything and in the process cause havoc and mayhem!

Moby

by Lynn
(Carrollton, OH)

I was told when I inquired about this boy he had health and behavioral issues. He was in a cat sanctuary when I got him.

Shaved, matted and scared of everything. Moby was a street cat who had been caught and sent to the vet to be neutered.

Moby's before and now pics are proof love and patience wins the cat! I was told he is a Maine Coon mix. His hair is slowly growing in and grooming is going well.

Moby has my heart!!!!

Cyrus 8 months old

by Pam Cook
(Tennessee )


Cyrus is the most active energetic kitten we have had!!! He can jump from one counter to another like it was easy. I measured and it was 6 feet!!

At the same time he takes his naps and just sleeps through everything. This is my rest time lol! He loves looking out at our bird feeder all day. He is handsome and I love him so much. He kisses me with his nose!

I got him from the same cattery that I got Sadie from in Alabama.

She is 4 years old. After I had picked out Cyrus I learned that Sadie and Cyrus had the same Sire but a different mother.

Mr. Mufasa

by Deborah Gassiot
(Kennedale, Texas)


About 2020, I saw Mr. Mufasa’s picture on a local animal shelter website.

It was so disturbing, the attendant was holding him like a rag doll, hands around his chest, with his legs hanging down, 10 years old, declawed and his long hair was matted to his skin.

Immediately I was on my way to rescue him and made veterinary arrangements. The veterinarian labeled him as a Maine Coon on his profile.

Now, he’s 13 years old, so proud, confident, affectionate and absolutely beautiful. I feel blessed to have found such a wonderful companion.

Please remember to check with your local animal shelters because there are so many other cats waiting for their forever home.





Blu

This is Blu. I rescued him 2 years ago from being abandoned in an apartment for 6 days with only a small empty bag of food and toilet water. He always wants to touch me and follows me wherever I go. I love him with all my heart.

Rescues do have them!!
by: MaineCoonMomx2

Yes, to everyone looking for a Maine Coon, but hesitating because of the price tag. They are worth every penny, but let’s face it not everyone can afford it. Please do as this wonderful person has and look at the Rescue websites!!

I am totally amazed that anyone would allow a precious MC to end up there!! It happens! I adopted my 2 beautiful boys from a Rescue also. They were only a few weeks old, but a litter was brought in??! I didn’t even know what a Maine Coon was?!? DNA positive 100%!

I was blessed that day, so I have stopped questioning it, and started learning! What a joyous adventure! Just last week a store clerk told me about her beautiful stray she took in. Actually he just followed her in!

I looked at her pictures as she couldn’t figure out what kind of cat he was? Really big and acting more like a dog? Maine Coon!!

She is learning about that now, and saving up for food, Lol! Asking how big her kitten was going to get, mine are about 26 pounds.

My Little Cooney Mixes


by: Sara in Seattle WA, USA


sara's cats



My girl is a Maine Coon Norwegian Forest cat mix. She's big and beautiful and 15 years old.

She loves snuggling and being combed and loves too much on her Blue Buffalo and more so loves her Greenies treats.

A few months after her sister died due to a bad vet visit, we adopted our little guy who is Maine Coon tabby mix and quite a rascal. He just loves.
