A MAine Coon is a "Gentle Giant". THey can often reach 25 to 30 pounds. Heres one guys Coon cat. As you can see, they treat all handling with either
They are just big lovable doofii who love to be with people. Ours is a female who is only 12 pounds and she' s;like a roach. SHe needs some kind of human contact with her fur at all times. SO she will just pick a lap at random and lay down on it.
BUT, she is a fearsome hunter of mousies. The animal shelters in MAine are often loaded with Coon Kittens and , while show quality cats can run up to 1000$, the ones we get at shelters in CAlais Maine only coat the fees for adoption and her shots(the town of Calais is the origin of her name CAlliecat)
Its always a big fight to keep Coon CAts trim. They can turn into such couch potatoes if they are just kept too well fed.
