History
History
Maine Coon Origins
The Maine Coon was developed from America farm cat stock, which itself was the result of crossings, of non-pedigree shorthairs and Angora brought back to Maine by sailors.
History
History
Racoon?
One of the oldest natural breeds of North America, the Maine Coon or Maine Cat, has been known as a true variety for more than a hundred years. As its name implies, it originated in the state on Maine. At one time it was thought that the cat was the product of matings between semi-wild domestic cats and racoons, hence the name “coon”, though this is now known to be a biological impossibility.
Character
Character
The Healthy Maine Coon
The Maine Coon is one of the healthiest cat breeds, able to endure wide ranges in temperature for prolonged periods. Possible because of its rough, outdoor, fend for yourself ancestry that led the breed to become accustomed to make-do sleeping arrangements, the Maine Coon will often be found asleep in unusual positions.
