Maine Coon Cat Breed

Maine Coon Cat Breed PhotoThe Maine Coon is the oldest indigenous breed of domestic cat in North America. It originated in the State of Maine, where early frontiersmen believed that these large cats were the result of breeding between a domestic cat and a raccoon.

Maine Coon Cats are considered to be the “puppies” of the cat world. They love people and want to be involved in every aspect of family life. Many people consider the Maine Coon to be the “perfect pet” with their unusual personalities, habits and tricks – and eagerness to help with every activity in the house. Maine Coons never lose the urge to play their whole lives, and somehow manage to inch their way into the hearts and affections of everyone they meet, whether it be people or other animals.
