Choosing the right kitten

When choosing a Maine Coon kitten, you must understand that it is not cheap.
Therefore, calculate in advance your financial possibilities for the purchase and care of a pet.

The chosen pet must fully meet your expectations. A kitten of two or three months should already present the characteristics inherent in the breed: brushes on the ears, a muzzle in the form of a box, a long tail.

You should not pay much attention to the color of the animal; it is more necessary to evaluate the character of the cat. A properly built animal of a pronounced type will look attractive regardless of the color of the coat.

Such varieties of Maine Coons are widespread: American and European types. Americans are squat, larger in size and have a wider bone. For Europeans, a wild look, a more elongated body, a long tail, and a narrow muzzle are inherent. European kittens have a beautiful decoration in the form of tassels on their ears already noticeable from an early age.

In catteries in breeding work specialists purposefully improve the pronounced characteristics of Maine Coons: an improved shape of the ears, an enlarged forehead, a heavier skeleton of animals.

Before choosing a certain kitten decide which types look will totally suits you.

Only healthy

When choosing a kitten pay attention to the state of health in appearance. It must be active and well-groomed, with no visible signs of disease. The pet’s coat should be silky, fluffy and shiny. Clean eyes, nose and ears, absence of discharge, coughing and sneezing are also signs of a cat’s health.


It is better to buy Maine Coon at the age of 3-3.5 months. By this time, all the vaccinations were made, the animal got stronger next to the cat, for a long time it fed on its mother’s milk. The kid adopted the necessary habits in the company of his brothers and sisters, got used to people.
