Cats are beautiful animals, with their unique facial traits and mellow, fluid body and limb. However, one of the most charming traits of cats is their lustrous, sleek fur. Fur can vary in color, pattern, and length also. These hair coats can protect felines from the cold in winter, and the heat from the sun in summer. It also functions as an aggression display, which usually raises when they are threatened or frightened. Otherwise, it is a feature that exhibits the beauty of your cat.

Maine Coon cats are the largest breed of domestic cats—they typically keep growing until they’re about four years old.
They have a distinct appearance, compared to other breeds: long, thick fur; big furred ears; bushy raccoon-like tail; large paws and slim body and limbs.
Despite their ice-cold, nonchalant expression and manners, they are actually very smart, which makes it relatively easy to train. They are very loyal to their household and affectionate towards family members, although they are not really of a ‘lap cat’ breed. They are also generally friendly to strangers and other animals, though you may not want them to be cautious against you.

Maine Coon cats are independent and adventurous beings, they enjoy wandering around and explore new areas.
Many Maine Coons have a fascination with water, due to their semi-water repellent fur and some might also be from their ancestors, who were aboard ships for much of their lives.
Maine Coons are also well known for being very vocal cats. They usually yowl, hơl, chirp, trill, and of course, meow.
