Default Maine Coon Cats

Hello Group,

We have a Maine Coon Cat. It was obtained from the Humane Society
The familly that adopted it brought it back and tied it to the fence
that night. It was a very young kitten.

They tossed it into the basement with me where it ran nostop for
several days around the pool table. I don't care for cats so I left it
alone two weeks later it was perched on my shoulder as I did my work
on the computer. Then of course it spent as much time as possible on
the keyboard.

Questions.

This cat is not very bright. Is this typical of main coons. The other
cats are tiger cats and seem smarter than this cat.

My daughter loves the cat and tries to carry it around. The cat of
course hates my daughter.

The cat is willfull. If it is lying on the floor and someone picks it
up, it will hurl itself off of the person holding it and go back to
the exact same spot it was in before being picked up.

The other cats tried to teach it how to catch and eat mice. All it
does is smell the mouses behind.


The cat is a screamer. It screams when it is angry,scared, or playing
with the other cats. This is the loudest scream I have ever heard. The
first time I heard it I honestly thought it was a tornado siren.

It has to know what you are doing at all times. The first time it saw
me go into the bathroom and close the door it screamed until I let it
in.

Is this a normal cat or did its mother have a substance abuse problem
when she was pregnant with it.

Where did it come from, arn't maine coon cats expensive.

Does one maine coon have to breed with another or can any two cats
create a maine coon

Are main coon cats native to this planet?

Main coon Cats are supposed to be large. This thing is 5yrs old and
really puny.

I will save my other questions until tomorrow.

Thanks
Jim

Your cat sounds fabulous. Some of the most fun cats are the dumbest
ones.

Lucky you!

I've never heard that Maine Coons are not as bright as other cats. How do you
know this cat is a Maine Coon, btw?

Normal enough.

I doubt it's a pedigreed Maine Coon.

Does one maine coon have to breed with another or can any two cats

No, Maine Coons are purebred cats. Perhaps your cat just looks a bit like a
Maine Coon.

It's not a Maine Coon then.

The vet told my daughter it was a maine coon cat. Don't people who's
cat mates with a different breed dispose of the young
It kinda acts like a maine coon cat stand offish, has to be involved
in everything. Looks exactly like the pictures of a maine coon cat in
cat books, loves to stand on the very edge of the house roof and watch
what everyone else is doing (i.e. loves heights). But it absolutely
positively hates snow.

But I agree that there is a strong possibility that it is not a Maine
Coon Seriously I doubt if there is a telling if any cat is a thorough
bred. Is there? I love the old saying if it looks a duck, walks like a
duck, sounds like a duck, it's a duck!
