9675Marina Kharlova

Maine Coon 2 months is just the best choice for a lover of smart cats. Often in nurseries they choose a Maine Coon kitten, because they are so cute, but not everyone knows how to care for them.

Most people love a wide variety of animals, some dogs, others parrots, and others cats. But cats are the only animals that have domesticated themselves. They do not try to run away from their owners, because they are fed, watered and pampered.

Maine Coon cat colors

Maine Coons come in a variety of colors.
Initially, cats had a black marbled color, which made them look like a raccoon. Over time, breeders began to need cats of all colors. Their work to suppress the genes responsible for color led to the appearance of cats of all colors: solid, brindle or tortoiseshell, and others.

Maine Coons come in different colors

Colors are classified by color, patterns, spots.


The selection work of scientists has made it possible to develop a Maine Coon breed with a uniform color. As a result of the suppression of genes responsible for color, white kittens appeared. The breed has a second name: solid.

Maine Coon

It means artificial, monochromatic. Most often it is possible to get black Maine Coons, with red cats in second place.


Black Maine Coons come in solid colors and with lines on their fur. They appear on the neck and face of the animal.

Black Maine Coon

Depending on the pattern, cats are further divided into three types:

  • brindle (vertical stripes run across the entire silhouette),
  • marble (reminiscent of stains on marble),
  • spotted (stripes are clearly visible).

Maine Coon

There are black Maine Coons with white spots.

The name indicates that the animal's fur combines equal amounts of white and black. Black Smoke cats have no stripes or spots. The coat color is white at the roots, darkening towards the tips.

Depending on the presence of hair of this color, varieties are distinguished:

  • chinchilla (black hair up to 1/8 of the fur),
  • smoky (even ratio of black and white wool),
  • shaded (only a quarter of the hairs are black, the rest are white).


White coloring is rare for Maine Coons. Characterized by the absence of wool of other shades. Often white individuals have amazing eyes: blue, bright green, golden.

White Maine Coon

Representatives of the white color do not have characteristic stripes on the tail, but there are tufts on the ears. Kittens have small stripes on their foreheads, but these disappear completely when they reach adulthood.

Red (red)

For a kitten to be bright red, you need two red parents. Red Maine Coons come in solid colors. The name of the color depends on the type of stripes: classic, brindle, spotted, ticked, agouti or smoky.

Red Maine Coon

Kittens appear light and turn red with age. It is impossible to determine which gene will predominate.


Kittens are also born white; pink pigment begins to color the animal's fur only in adulthood.

Cream Maine Coon


Blue Solid is common among this breed. If there is no picture, then the gene responsible for them is suppressed. Pure color is rare. In the table it is indicated by one letter.

Smoky individuals are black or blue. The dominant color appears closer to the tip of the hair. At the roots, the hair looks snow-white. This feature of coat color is present in ginger cats.

Bathing a 2 month old Maine Coon

Surprisingly, most of the Maine Coon breed is very calm about water, but there are exceptions. Therefore, raising such an animal and teaching it to bathe should begin at 2 months. But be that as it may, you should still close the doors to the bathroom when bathing.

When swimming, the following rules should be observed:

  1. Before bathing, the cat needs to be combed and checked to ensure that it does not have wounds; if necessary, its claws can be trimmed and its ears cleaned.
  2. It is best to bathe in a basin or sink.
  3. To prevent your pet's paws from slipping and scratching the coating, you can put a terry towel.
  4. During the washing process, you need to hold the kitten well by the scruff of the neck.
  5. With your free hand, take a sponge, wet it and rub the shampoo into your pet's fur.
  6. The detergent must be applied carefully.
  7. Do not wet the cat's head while washing it.
  8. After bathing, the foam can be washed off using a ladle or watering can.
  9. After which you can additionally use a conditioner.

Character and features

Of course, this incredibly beautiful animal, first of all, attracts with its appearance. However, his character is also interesting. The main features that the fiery red Maine Coon can boast of are usually listed by owners as:

  • goodwill;
  • friendliness;
  • patience;
  • loyalty.

Indeed, the character of these pets is very different from the general idea of ​​cats. Their curiosity and mobility are especially interestingly combined with the size of adult individuals.

Many people compare Maine Coons to dogs. This breed actually exhibits several traits that are more commonly seen in canines. They get along well with children and are not jealous of other cats. These red animals are very sociable and treat others with special friendliness.


Origin story

The northwestern United States is considered the birthplace of this breed. It was there, in Maine, that these incredible creatures first saw the light of day. In confirmation of this origin, the breed even received the name Maine Coon. Despite the logic of this fact, many build their own theories about creating pets.

Some consider the unusual creatures to be a combination of the genes of cats and raccoons. This theory is supported by the Maine Coon's tail color. Others replace raccoon with lynx in this DNA cocktail. The reason for this hypothesis is the tassels on the ears of these cats.

Maine Coon: detailed description of the breed

In order not to mistake a mixed breed, which is often found among fanciers, for a genuine Maine Coon, knowledge of the complete characteristics of the Maine will be very useful. So:

  • The shape of the head is slightly elongated in length, whereas in other breeds it extends in width. An uneven profile, high cheekbones and voluminous ears with high-set tassels. The presence of tassels is the most important distinguishing feature of the Maine breed.
  • The eyes are set wide and shaped like an oval. The color of the eyes usually harmonizes with the color.
  • The body is represented by well-developed muscles; animals are often large and very large in size. Long, wide shapes predominate.
  • The paws are proportional to the body - just as powerful, with good muscles. There should be small tufts of wool between the pads on the paws.
  • A voluminous and very fluffy tail, sometimes equal in size to the length of the entire animal.
  • The Maine Coon's coat is thick and quite long. In the area of ​​the muzzle and on the neck, the hair is of medium length.
  • A medium-sized Maine Coon will have a total length (including tail) of 95-100 cm.

An important distinguishing feature of the Maine Coon breed is the weight of the animals, which ranges from 6 to 10 kg. The average is between 7 and 9 kg. Cats, as a rule, are lighter than cats and gain about 6 kg of weight, but there are representatives of the “heavy” weight category - about 8 kg. The largest Maine Coon can easily reach a weight of just over 10 kg, which, due to its lush fur, looks much more voluminous, creating a false impression of a 15-kilogram cat. There are very widespread opinions about how much Maine Coons weigh, attributing incredible weights of up to 20 kg to cats. In fact, not a single case has been recorded in which the weight reached such figures. There is a standard system showing the dynamics of Maine Coon weight by month, which corresponds to the vast majority of animals.

Popular colors of Maine Coons

Maine cats abound in various colors, among which in the professional environment the main one is considered to be “wild” or “black tabby”, and all subsequent ones began to appear over time, gaining wide popularity among fanciers and breeders. Coon colors:

  • Red Maine Coon is one of the most popular colors with cream, brick or red colored fur, diluted with streaks of light shades;
  • white Maine Coon - characterized by exclusively snow-white fur, without any additional shades;
  • black Maine Coon - implies an absolutely even black color with the absence of other tint inclusions;
  • Maine Coon black marble - a classic color, which is characterized by a design in the form of curls and continuous lines, made in a double color scheme;
  • Maine Coon black smoke is an original color where the roots of the coat are painted white, and the subsequent length of the coat is exclusively black.

The black Maine Coons in the photo turn out excellent, embodying grace and showing off the rich coat of a timeless color. Red coons are no less photogenic, always able to lift your spirits with their sunny color.

What to feed a Maine Coon kitten: recommendations

Giant cats grow slower than other breeds; the musculoskeletal system is formed up to 1.5 years. Another distinctive feature of the Maine Coon is its large, well-developed jaw. In nature, cats hunt small prey: rodents, birds, lizards. They satisfy hunger with a small amount of food, but often up to 10-15 times a day.

Pets have retained the habit and often go to the bowl throughout the day, spending a total of up to 30 minutes eating.

Natural nutrition

Kittens and adults should absolutely not be offered food prepared for people.

The diet should include:

  1. Meat. The best option is beef, chicken, veal, offal (unpeeled beef tripe, kidneys, lungs). Occasionally it is allowed to pamper your pet with a portion of boiled liver.
  2. Milk, fermented milk products - kefir, cottage cheese, yogurt, fermented baked milk. Sour cream is suitable as a delicacy; it should not be greasy. You should not give hard cheeses, feta cheese, suluguni due to the high concentration of salt in the product.
  3. Once every 1-2 weeks, give sea fish, boiled until half cooked, cleaned of bones. It is enough to simply boil capelin, sprat, and anchovy; there is nothing dangerous in these varieties for the esophagus and gums.
  4. Boiled quail eggs are preferable; they are hypoallergenic; 4-5 eggs per week are allowed.
  5. Cereals - rice, oatmeal, buckwheat. Valuable sources of fiber necessary for normal functioning of the stomach and intestinal peristalsis, offered once every 2-3 days. The cereal is washed, poured with boiling water, covered with a lid, letting it brew for 2-3 hours.
  6. Boiled, fresh vegetables - carrots, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkin, cucumbers, dried seaweed, fruits.
  7. Necks and heads of chickens - soft bone, brain and eye tissues help cleanse the stomach of hair, are sources of valuable microelements, remove plaque, and train the jaws. The beak is first removed.

Polydactyly (hyperdactyly) in cats: polydactyly, broad feet, many fingers, what kind of deviation?

Before appearing in a bowl, raw meat should lie in the freezer for 2-4 days. During this time, pathogenic bacteria and worm eggs will die in it.

With natural feeding, it is necessary to additionally give vitamin complexes and dietary supplements, since even with a well-formulated, complete diet, it is difficult to ensure that the body receives all the necessary nutrients in sufficient quantities.

You cannot give hot or cold food; it should be at room temperature, cut into portions.

Dry and wet food

A convenient and favorite way of eating by most owners. Ready-made food has a balanced composition and does not require time to purchase ingredients, preparation, or cooking.

Babies are fed premium, superpremium, holistic-class food:

  • Ekanuba;
  • Nutro;
  • Purina Pro Plan;

Of the cheaper options, Royal Canin, Yams, and Gourmet canned food have proven themselves well.

These manufacturers create a high-quality product, balanced in protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, enriched with vitamin complexes, amino acids, taurine, omega 3,6 acids, and healthy food additives. The food is selected taking into account the age of the animal.

Cheap options are contraindicated for kittens and adults, as they contain mineral salts and carbohydrates in excess. For the production of Whiskas, Pan Kot, Friskas, Sheba feeds, waste meat products - feathers, bones, skins - are used. They provoke the appearance of kidney stones and cannot cover the cat’s need for nutrients.

Mixed diet

Mixed feeding is allowed. Granules are poured in small quantities, replenishing the volume as needed. When exposed to air, they lose their aroma that is attractive to pets, and in summer they quickly oxidize due to the heat. The water should be fresh, clean (filtered), and changed regularly.

Cats drink less than dogs, often do it at night and need a free opportunity to quench their thirst. Wet food becomes unsuitable for eating 3-4 hours after being removed from an open package; the bowl is filled with it strictly before eating.

Professional breeders and veterinarians are divided into two camps: some say that with this style of feeding, the cat is at risk of vitamin deficiency, excess calories, and digestive system disorders. Others practice mixed feeding, considering it healthy and practical.

This method is convenient if the Maine Coon spends the whole day at home alone, and working owners have the opportunity to feed their pet natural food only in the morning and evening.

  • contain additives intended for the prevention of breed-specific diseases - joint dysplasia, heart pathologies.

Adapted nutrition within the line is divided according to the age of pets, health conditions: pregnant cats, lactating cats, kittens, neutered cats, etc. It is advisable to use dry and wet food from the same manufacturer for feeding.

Pavel Volya from the Comedy Club has a large mega cat of the Maine Coon breed living at home. A huge black cat named Boomer, according to the comedian, weighs at least 20 kilograms and eats more food than Pavel himself did in his student years.

Of course, the artist is exaggerating - cats of this breed weigh on average 10-12 kilograms, and Boomer looks gigantic against the backdrop of the puny comedian. The cat's size also has its advantages, Pavel jokes - Boomer will never shit in his shoes, because he simply won't fit in them.

Victoria Bonya and the cat Sultan

Star and TV presenter Victoria Boni had a cat for 10 thousand euros. The exotic Savannah cat was not her first pet. She and her common-law husband Alex already had a cat, Luna, and only next to her could Victoria’s beloved one calmly fall asleep. But the cat died, and the couple immediately began looking for a replacement. The three-month-old exotic beauty immediately won the hearts of Victoria and her fans.

Even the nickname was chosen by the whole world. The options of naming the cat Cash (they gave so much money) or Schumacher (and it can be shortened to Shukher due to his playful nature) did not catch on. The exotic cat was named Sultan, but he soon had to be given away due to Victoria’s boyfriend’s allergies.

Meet Pavel Volya's cat - Boomer and other star PURS (Part 2)

What color Maine Coon is better to choose?

Color, as one of the main details of the exterior, determines the price of a Maine Coon, which is why kittens of the same litter cost differently. Buyer interest is due to two circumstances: the fashion for Maine Coons themselves and a certain color trend.

Now, thanks to the blue Maine Coon Non-plus-Ultra, which appears in commercials, blue solid cats have no competition. This is not surprising - blue solids look amazing, but they are also very expensive in nurseries.

Fans of mysticism and Bulgakov adore cats that are completely black, shell out fantastic money for them and give them infernal names. Slightly lower in the popularity ranking are white solid, snow-white Maine Coons, which might have been ahead of black ones if not for the persistent thesis about a potential hearing disorder.

Cream and red giants are also damn attractive, whose monochrome color slightly disturbs the residual tabby, which is why they still lose to black and blue solids.

If you need a cat with an aura of mystery, take a smoky kitten, whose fur seems to glow from within. Once you learn how to care for such fur, your pet will look no worse than the hyped blue Maine Coons.

Bicolors and harlequins are chosen much less often, which is due to the very unsuccessful play of spots, which do not always form an attractive pattern. And if you accidentally overdo it with white, you can fall out of favor with experts at exhibitions.

People who believe in omens will definitely choose a tortoiseshell-colored cat, which can bring harmony and happiness to the house.

Rules of care and hygiene

To keep your pet healthy, you need to properly care for it.

Cats should be brushed regularly with a fine-toothed metal brush. The procedure is carried out at least 2 times a week. If the animal sheds, it needs to be brushed every day. Be sure to comb your pet's tail thoroughly. You need to bathe once every 1.5-2 months. When washing, shampoos for long-haired cats are used.

You will need a large tray. It is better to take an open one or with a mesh. Due to the size of the cat, litter boxes will be uncomfortable. The animal may refuse to use them.

The eyes are cleared of mucus if necessary. The procedure is carried out using a cotton pad soaked in weakly brewed tea. It is prohibited to use chamomile decoction, since its use leads to hair loss around the organs of vision.

Ears with tassels will have to be cleaned of wax with cotton pads soaked in special solutions from veterinary stores or pharmacies. There is no need to use cotton swabs, since they can easily harm the animal and injure it.

Maine Coons are also famous for their cleanliness. Despite the long hair, which needs to be brushed once a week, it is difficult to find cat hairs in the house. Only during the molting period, which happens once a year, should you comb your pet every day.

A red Maine Coon will never eat from a dirty bowl. At the same time, he can play with a piece of meat for hours and then eat it. Wallpaper and furniture will not be touched if you immediately install a scratching post for your pet.

The animal feeds on meat and fish. For a shiny coat, you should give him boiled vegetables. Despite its size, there is no need to overfeed your pet. It is better to buy balanced cat food.

Red maines, like their brothers, love water. You can safely bathe them every week using a special shampoo. But you need to get used to using a hairdryer from childhood.

Life expectancy is 12-15 years. In 2021, a cat who was half Maine was entered into the Guinness Book of Records, and at that time his age was 26 years old.

About food…

A 1-month-old kitten can already move to a new owner. But he needs to thoroughly find out what to feed a Maine Coon at 1 month. This is very important, since growth largely depends on its diet.

The first thing you need to do when adopting a kitten is find out what the previous owner fed it.

Remember that for about a week to the first ten days you need to feed your Maine Coon the same food that he was given before. A sudden change in food can have a bad effect on the health of the fluffy.

If previously the Maine Coon ate mainly only mother's milk, then in a month or a month and a half it can be replaced with ten percent cream . Over time, make your Maine Coon's diet more varied. Start giving your baby:

  • beef;
  • chicken (fillet);
  • yolk (twice a week will be enough);
  • cottage cheese (it should not be too fatty, sweet or salty, without fruit or any other additives);
  • sea ​​fish;
  • rice and buckwheat porridge, as well as oatmeal porridge;
  • greens - parsley, dill, celery;
  • vegetables (it’s better not to give potatoes yet).

The world's largest Maine Coon

Few people know that the largest Maine Coon cat in the world, named Omar, lives in the British city of Melbourne. The animal's body weight is 14 kilograms, and its length is as much as 120 centimeters, which breaks all previous records, as reported by The Telegraph. The publication writes that the cat’s favorite treat is raw kangaroo meat.

The fact that the Maine Coon is the largest cat in the world has been known for a long time. The previous recorded record for the length of a cat's body - 118 cm - also belongs to a cat of this breed. However, Omara's owner decided to compete for championship in this category, sending her pet's measurements to a special commission in the hope that he would defeat his rival and receive the coveted title of the largest cat in the world.

Price of kittens

Having learned about the record holder, many dream of getting a pet of impressive size and are interested in: how much does a Maine Coon cat cost, is such a “purchase” affordable?

There are rumors that cats of this breed are bred by entrepreneurs in order to make large profits from their sale. It should be noted that organizing such a business requires, firstly, large investments, and secondly, it is unlikely that people who know nothing about breeding purebred Maine Coons would simply risk their funds. Without spiritual aspiration and professional knowledge, such a business would not have lasted long, much less won the respect of breeders around the world.

Maine Coon cats have ancient roots, and in order to pass on the gene for their native “wild” color and aristocratic manners, breeders need to seriously try.

In addition, specialists in their field are constantly working to breed subtypes of the breed of the most unusual and original colors, showing extraordinary creative and professional abilities.

Let's find out how much a Maine Coon kitten costs and what its cost depends on. Several important factors influence price formation:

  • breed qualities of appearance and character;
  • purebred, confirmed by good pedigree;
  • gender of the kitten;
  • dimensions and color of the animal;
  • merits of the cat's parents;
  • funds spent on feeding and veterinary care for the mother cat and newborn kitten;
  • location (naturally, in Moscow and St. Petersburg, for example, cats will cost slightly more than in Siberia, the Urals and other regions remote from the capital);
  • kitten delivery service (if you order an animal in a remote city, you will pay more than if you brought it yourself).

As you can see, it is impossible to say exactly how much the Maine Coon breed costs.

In any case, Maine Coons are not cheap; you need to be prepared for this immediately when choosing a kitten. If we talk about purebred babies from nurseries with a good pedigree, then they cost an average of 35-40 thousand rubles. Individual representatives of the breed with the original color or descendants of the best lines can cost much more.

Babies “from amateurs” cost an average of 10-15 thousand rubles. Usually, these are kittens without documents that appeared as a result of mating according to the type: you have a cat, I have a cat, and let’s breed. When selling, they often say that they didn’t do the paperwork on purpose, they say, there’s a lot of hassle, but potential buyers (far from all the details of the breeding business) are happy: kittens are cheaper, and they don’t need paperwork, because they take a kitten for the soul. In fact, kittens without documents are not representatives of a particular breed and in the circles of professional felinologists are considered outbred.

Mixed-breed kittens are usually sold inexpensively - up to 5,000 rubles. The price depends on external data, similarity to Maine Coons, as well as the integrity of the breeders.

Where to buy a kitten

Where to buy a purebred Maine Coon so as not to make a mistake in choosing. There are several options:

  1. At the market where they sell a lot of animals and offer Maine kittens. As a rule, such children do not have documents. There is a high probability of purchasing either a mestizo or a simple handsome guy for a not very high cost.
  2. It is also dangerous to hope on message boards on the Internet that the dozens of offers posted will not turn out to be a hoax.
  3. On the Avito website, sometimes breeders post photos of real Maines, but you need to be well versed in the intricacies of the breed of these unique cats. You may come across scammers with fake passports and photos of kittens. Most often, sick coons with defects according to the standard are offered there for a lower price.
  4. On the websites of nurseries you can find detailed information about each kitten and its parents. But you need to familiarize yourself with the reputational reviews of animals previously purchased from these breeders. To be sure, they visit the nursery itself, get acquainted with the breeding parents of the selected Maine, and the conditions of its maintenance. They check the passport and the availability of information in it and about all descendants up to the 4th generation. What and when vaccinations were given? The owners of the cattery must have a certificate giving the right to breed Maine Coons.
  5. For those who decide to purchase a guaranteed purebred Maine Coon, you should visit cat shows. Where you can not only choose your favorite kitten, meet its breeding parents and owners - breeders, but also get advice and recommendations on the breed and purchasing rules from the exhibition organizers.

Attention! You shouldn’t buy a pet right away at an exhibition; you need to go to the nursery and there thoroughly inspect the animal, check the conditions of detention and the correctness of filling out the documents. Take a closer look at other lambing brothers, maybe there will be a Maine that you like based on the appearance and character of its behavior.

Breed cost

Maine Coons are one of the most popular cat breeds in Russia and other countries. Many are attracted to them by their uniquely huge appearance and amazing resemblance to a wild animal. They are called domesticated little lynxes. Maine prices across the country are very high: from 20 to 80 thousand.

Breeding issues

Mating, caring for a cat during pregnancy, and proper delivery require responsibility from the breeder and an understanding of the peculiarities of these processes.

  • Estrus. The age at which the first heat occurs varies from person to person. Puberty occurs late in Maine Coons. The norm is considered to be a time period of seven months to one and a half years.
  • Preparing for mating. Before the first mating, they are tested for infections, given a comprehensive vaccination, dewormed, and the cat is treated for fleas and parasites.
  • Knitting. It is carried out in the territory of the male. The cat is left for several days with a tray, a supply of food and other necessary things. The optimal time is the second or third day after the start of estrus.
  • Pregnancy. Gestation of kittens lasts 65-68 days. During pregnancy, the cat should receive a balanced diet, vitamin supplements, and be regularly examined by a veterinarian.
  • Childbirth. Maine Coons have a well-developed maternal instinct. Childbirth is usually easy, without complications. A small amount of red-brown discharge during the week after birth is considered normal.

If your cat continues to have strong contractions for one to two hours but is unable to give birth, you should call a veterinarian. Specialist intervention is required in case of intense bleeding, a sharp increase or decrease in temperature.

If the animal's health or non-compliance with breed standards does not allow serious breeding, it is better to think about sterilization or castration. Judging by the reviews and opinion of veterinarians, this reduces the risk of developing many diseases, increases the life expectancy of the pet, and has a beneficial effect on its character.
