The Maine Coon is one of the largest original cat breeds. They are characterized by an imposing appearance and quiet, stable character.
Despite its grand appearance, the Maine Coon is a quiet but energetic cat with a good social awareness to other pets and humans. Their mood is generally quite balanced and stable, fairly playful and tolerant. It is a relatively independent cat that can be kept as only pet without a problem.
The cat sees itself as part of the family and is always involved, from a small distance, in what happens in the house.
