Maine Coons are truly majestic.
While I love all cats, every cat breed has something different to offer. And when one goes to adopt a kitty, they usually have something in mind as to which breed they would prefer. After all, every cat breed exhibits different behavior and some are not perfect for first-time pet owners. However, Maine Coons fall somewhere in the middle when it comes to their behavior. They can be quite friendly to those they trust but they also have the laziness that cat breeds like Ragdolls lack.
But Maine Coons are still one of the most popular breeds around the world. They grow up to be quite big in size because they have a lot of fur. So for those who like to wear black clothes, a white Maine Coon might be your worst nightmare. They also require a lot of care as their fur can easily become matted if you don’t regularly brush them. These big kitties are quite playful and love to fool around with humans, so they fit right in homes with big families.

The name Maine Coon actually comes from the state of Maine in the US as it is the official cat for that state. Not only that, but Maine Coons are one of the oldest breeds and were used as hunting cats in the old times because of their large size. They are still kept as farm cats to scare away any predators and to keep farm animals in their enclosures. I know usually this sort of job is for a dog but these cats are unique in this regard.
