There are many stories about the origin of the Maine Coon, and though we will most likely never find out where these adorable furballs came from, they are native to America, where they have been stealing hearts ever since the colonial days, and even longer.

Personality:

These cats have had a turbulent history and were almost extinct at the beginning of the 20th century, only to make a fabulous comeback and become one of the most popular breeds in the world. All it takes is one look at the breed, one of the largest in the cat world, to understand why they are called gentle giants. For those of you not familiar with the breed, the Maine Coon owes its reputation to their size, intelligence, obedience and attachment to their humans. Though it’s not a personality trait, future Maine Coon owners should know that these felines are nowhere near you average cat when it comes to bathing – they love water and have no problem whatsoever spending hours in the tub.
