Yep, there are hundreds of reasons why this cat can make a wonderful companion – but just to make it easier for you, we’ve compiled it down to 5. So here’s why Maine Coons are the coolest cats:
1. They are super affectionate
I adopted a new cat. His name is Benson. He's a 35lb Maine Coon (he's not fat, just massive). Benson has only been with me less than 24 hours. I think Benson loves me. I love Benson too. Love you pic.twitter.com/tWjBbN2CmK— Liberal, Not Lefty (@liberalnotlefty) January 2, 2019
Maine Coons love nothing more than to be with their owners, especially when they can get lots of fuss!
2. They have a cheeky side

No-one likes a goodie-goodie anyway, right? Although Coons can have a naughty side to them, they generally have very laid-back and calm personalities!
3. They are great with children
If you’re looking for a cat who will do well with your kids, look no further. These cats are super gentle and make the best of friends for children who know how to treat them with respect.
4. They are extremely intelligent
Maine Coons are eager to please and very smart! They may be one of the most trainable cat breeds out there!

That long fur, those deep, colourful eyes, that regal stance…we can’t think of a more beautiful cat!
