Maine Coons are known for their ability to adapt to many lifestyles. They tend to fall in a perfect balance of being loving and social, but aren’t needy. They like to follow you around, and are happy to receive attention – but they’re just as happy supervising what you’re doing. While they aren’t known for being lap cats – They like to be near family. ❤️
Clearly, this is a large cat breed. Most Maine Coons weigh 9-18 pounds. Males are larger and can weigh in at 20 pounds or more! Main Coons actually don’t reach their full size until they are 3-5 years old.
