Maine Coon Cat Information

The Maine Coon cat breed comes in a rainbow of colors. The CFA standard allows most colors and patterns, including tortoise and parti-colors, with the exception of pointed patterns.
TICA does not mention color in its breed standard, other than that white trim around eyes, lips, and chin is allowed except in solid colors. Add lynx ear tufts and an endearing chirping voice, very like young raccoons, and you have a strikingly beautiful but solid and robust cat, perfectly fitting to Maine’s extreme climatic conditions.

Although named after the raccoon, contrary to popular folklore, the Maine Coon cat is not the result of a cat breeding with a raccoon; more likely is the story of a cross between an American domestic cat and a long-haired cat (possibly an Angora), brought by ship from Europe.
