Maine Coon: On the rocks
a large, hardy and beautiful breed of cats survive well in the harsh winters. Only the most hardy individuals with highly developed muscles were able to participate in further breeding.
Maine Coons develop slowly and reach maturity in only 4-5 years. By this age, males can reach a weight of 12 kg, females - less. This is a big, gentle and good-natured giant. Even the voice sets them apart from other cats. He has a distinct bright vibration. Maine Coons rarely meow, and only occasionally and briefly served tender voice that does not correspond to their size.
The important distinguishing features of the Maine Coon are the head shape, body and texture of their hair. The head is slightly elongated more in length than in width, with a slightly curved profile and high cheekbones, large ears and wide at the base, set high, well tufted inside. Tassels on the ears, similar to Rysin. The neck is of medium length, long body, broad chest. The tail is as long as the body.
Many owners of the Maine Coon consider them the perfect pet: the exterior, like a clown, wool, and requires no maintenance, faithful nature with funny habits and behavior, willingness to "help" in any activity. They will make excellent company for any family, can live together with dogs and other animals.
