History
Note: 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.
