Maine Coon Cats & Kittens for Sale

Originating from Maine, USA, the Maine Coon is one of the largest domestic cat breeds worldwide, with males weighing up to a staggering 18 lbs. Females are generally smaller, between 8 and 12 lbs, which is still considerably bigger than many breeds!

The Maine Coon’s size is proportionate to their affection as these furry giants make one of the most loving feline companions. What’s more, they’re active, playful, intelligent, and a whole lot of fun to be around, so it’s no surprise that they are now almost as popular in the UK as in the US.

Meet the Maine Coon

Of course, the most distinctive feature of a Maine Coon is its chunky size. In fact, it was a Maine Coon who took the title for the world’s longest cat in the 2010 Guinness World Records, measuring 48.5 inches long. However, not all Maine Coons will reach this size; your typical gentle giant will reach a height of 10–16 inches and a length of 30-40 inches.

Maine Coons descend from Norwegian Forest Cats and have a wild cat lineage, which is why they grow so much. Plus, they mature slowly, which results in them developing strong and heavy bones and muscles. The Maine Coon’s long, silky fur makes them appear even larger and gives them their beautiful, majestic, and cuddly appearance.

Their smooth, shaggy two-layered coat also reflects their heritage as they served as mouse catchers and farm cats in the harsh Maine climate. The fur length also differs throughout their body, shorter on the shoulders, longer on the stomach and britches, and accompanied by a long, bushy tail.

The vast majority of Maine Coons found in the UK have a brown, tabby pattern, but these cats can come in a wide range of colours and patterns. Aside from brown, they can be solid white, cream, red, blue, or black. You can also find them in one of these colours with a tabby pattern, or bi-colour, tortoiseshell, shaded, or calico.

Lastly, Maine Coon’s have gentle-looking faces and heads proportionate to their bodies. They have large, pointed ears that often have cute wisps of hair and big, expressive eyes, which are usually a shade of green, gold, or greenish-gold.

The temperament of a Maine Coon

Maine Coon owners often remark on how good-natured and laid-back their felines are. They are certainly a friendly, affectionate and people-loving breed that makes them desirable and enjoyable pets. However, they are very active and love to play, so they are not typically lapcats but will stay close to you nonetheless.

Despite being super affectionate, Maine Coons are not needy by any means. For example, they will not be offended if you close them out of the bathroom to shower in peace. They are also not too loud and will not use their meow to whine to get what they want. Instead, the sounds they make tend to be more chirp-like and pleasant.

Maine Coons take four to five years to fully mature, which is longer than most other breeds. Because of this, your gentle giant will retain its kitten-like playfulness, so you’ll need to ensure you have plenty of toys and games around to keep them entertained.

Moreover, as they once served as mouse catchers, they have incredible hunting skills. In a domestic setting, they will recreate this by chasing their toys, balls, and maybe even your feet! Even so, they are not lovers of high places and do not climb or jump as much as other breeds do. Instead, they survey the ground with an eye out for prey at all times.

Finally, all Maine Coon owners should know just how intelligent these kitties are. The more you work their smart brain by teaching them tricks and commands, the more they will thrive.

10 Reasons to add a Maine Coon to your family

  1. They will keep away rodents - One of the most practical benefits of having a Maine Coon is that you will never again have a rodent infestation.
  2. They are big teddies - Maine Coons are nicknamed “gentle giants” as their large size, fluffy coat, and loving nature makes the ideal cuddle buddies.
  3. They are incredibly calm - Maine Coons do not have aggressive personalities. They avoid conflict and won’t initiate fights with other pets.
  4. They are easy to train - As they are super bright, it’s easy to teach your Maine Coon to behave well and respond to commands.
  5. They are great around children - Their gentle nature and laidback disposition make them one of the most child-friendly cat breeds.
  6. They have a mysterious history - Much of this breed’s lineage remains unknown, and there are many theories of how they appeared in the USA, including being brought over by Vikings!
  7. They make cute noises - Maine Coons do not tend to use a typical meow to communicate, but a range of pleasant chirps and trills instead.
  8. They are not needy - Your Maine Coon may seek you out in the house and lay close by, but they will not demand your attention. If you are busy, they will patiently wait and entertain themselves in the meantime.
  9. They enjoy bath time - From time to time, you might need to bathe your Maine Coon to prevent their gorgeous coat from matting. Luckily, many Maine Coons love water and enjoy splashing around, making the grooming routine enjoyable for you both.
  10. They are a desirable breed - The Maine Coon’s unique traits and extra-large size makes them stand out from your standard moggie as an exclusive breed.

Best homes for a Maine Coon

Maine Coons have a perfect balance between devotion and independence, making them an excellent option for all kinds of households. They are also very gentle and tolerant with children, making fantastic family pets for those with young kids. What’s more, their amiable personality means most Maine Coons are happy to live with other cats, as well as calm dogs.

Maine Coons are independent enough to stay on their own for short periods. However, although they are not needy, do not forget that they are still highly social cats. Therefore, their well-being may suffer if they are left alone all day, every day, so they are best suited to owners who are home some of the time.

Frequently Asked Questions About Maine Coon Kittens

Why should I choose a Maine Coon kitten from The Pedigree Paws rather than elsewhere?
We believe that no kitten should be in any environment other than the one it was born and raised in with its mum. It’s our mission to help fight the illegal pet farms that are still in operation in the UK and throughout Europe. Therefore, we support only moral, licensed breeders that demonstrate the best care towards their animals. As a result, all our breeders keep their kittens in the family home, treating each one as their own. Because of this, you can rest assured that by choosing one of our Maine Coon kittens, you’ll receive a well-developed, fully healthy feline.
Is a Maine Coon the right kitten for me?
Maine Coons are a good-natured breed, and they are very friendly and gentle towards people, children, and other animals. They also have a well-balanced temperament, where they are affectionate but not needy. Because of this, we find Maine Coons fit nicely in most types of homes. They are a good option for families with young children as Maine Coons are not aggressive cats in the slightest. They love human interaction, though, so if you’re considering getting a Maine Coon, know that they thrive best in homes where the owner is home at least some of the time.
Is The Pedigree Paws a trustworthy agency?
You have probably heard many sad stories about dishonourable breeders and agencies. Therefore, we know it’s not easy to know who to trust in the pet industry. At The Pedigrees Paws, we prioritise building assurance with our clients by operating transparently and ethically. We only work with licensed breeders, and we supply registration documents to prove that your new Maine Coon kitten is 100% authentic. However, don’t just take our word for it. Feel free to check out testimonials from hundreds of our happy customers and see for yourself.
Are The Pedigree Paws Maine Coon Kittens healthy?
Yes, it’s vital that we only sell 100% healthy and well-developed Maine Coon kittens. To ensure this, we make sure all our breeders follow the strictest health protocols. So, for example, every Maine Coon kitten we list will have had a thorough health check first. What’s more, we run DNA checks on the kitten’s parents to ensure they do not have any genetic mutations that they may have passed down and are 100% Maine Coone. In addition, your kitten will be dewormed, microchipped, and have all their vaccinations complete before coming to you.
How long do I have to wait to get my new Maine Coon?
No kitten, no matter the breed, should ever be taken away from its mum too early. In cases where this happens, the kitten often has development issues and behavioural problems that can last well into adult life. So, although we understand you would like your new kitten as soon as possible, we prefer to keep them with their mother and siblings until they are 10-13 weeks old. However, we allow breeders to set their timescales themselves, providing it’s within our parameters, so this duration varies.
Can I see the parents of a Maine Coon kitten before purchase?
Yes, it’s always a good idea to see a kitten’s parents and check that they look healthy before making any payment. Seeing the parents for yourself will give you much greater confidence that your kitten will arrive in top condition. Plus, being one of the largest breeds, seeing the parents can give you an idea of how big your baby Maine Coon may get. We will arrange for you to have a video call with the breeder to see one or both of the kitten’s parents.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of my new Maine Coon kitten?
Yes, all our Maine Coon kittens come with internationally recognised pedigree documents such as GCCF, TICA, FIFe that prove they are 100% Maine Coon. The exact registration will depend on the location of the breeder, though. For example, in Great Britain, most kittens will receive registration through GCCF.
Do your Maine Coon kittens come from good breeders?
Yes, all our Maine Coon kittens come from the very best breeders in the industry. All our partners adhere to strict animal welfare policies set by international organisations, such as Cat Fanciers’ Association. In addition, as we care deeply about animal welfare, we have an extensive in-house breeder selection process, too. This gives us and you the assurance that we are working with the most ethical breeders around. For example, we ensure that all our cat breeders treat every kitten like a family member rather than a product to sell. Therefore, you can rest assured that your baby Maine Coon will grow into an affectionate, well-tempered, easy-going companion.
Are your Maine Coon kittens raised in a family home or breeding facility?
We are proud to say that we only work with breeders who raise their kittens with the mother cat in the family home. For various reasons, we do not work with commercial breeding facilities. Kittens here are often kept in unclean, confined cages without their mother or siblings, experience a great deal of neglect, and are treated like products. However, when kittens grow up with their mother and siblings in a family home, they thrive. Not only do they receive sufficient care, but they receive adequate human interaction, so they develop well and quickly adapt to their new home.
How can I help my Maine Coon kitten adjust to its new home?
Maine Coon cats and kittens are very easy-going and generally not scared of strangers. This makes the transition process of a new home relatively stress-free for them. However, how quickly they settle will depend on their specific personality and how you initiate the transition. To help them adapt quickly, ask the breeder to send you a towel or blanket containing the mother’s scent. The feline pheromones that mother cats give off are incredibly calming, so this will help your kitten feel safe and at ease. Then when your kitten arrives, confine them to one room for a day or two before letting them explore the whole house. Also, remember that although Maine Coon adapt well to new pets, you should always introduce them slowly.
