Watch a one-year time lapse of a Maine coon growing up! Remember, Maine coons will keep growing until they are four years old sometimes!

Maine coon cats were originally believed to have been bred with North American bobcats. That is not true, but they are excellent hunters like the bobcat. They were originally used on ships to hunt mice. Maine coon cats still like to hunt and it’s important to provide them toys if they are indoor pets.
