Maine coon cattery Liger Cat has been founded in 2006 as we have been dreaming of maine coon cats (WCF). Maine Coon is an America's native breed of a domestic cat, bred by natural selection without human intervention.
"The dogs of the cat world" - that's what people call Maine Coons because Maine Coons seek out and enjoy the company of people. Maine Coons make great companions as they are a friendly, playful, natural breed with an affectionate nature. Their dispositions remain kittenish throughout their lives and some people say they continue to grow until they're about four years old. They are big, gentle, good-natured goofs. Most of the cats Maine Coon Adoptions rescues and fosters are Maine Coon mixes. We look for Maine Coon traits such as ear and foot tufts, length of the coat and ruff, bushy tails, eye color, personality traits, etc. when we identify kitties in shelters, but it is impossible to tell from just looking at a cat if it is related to the Maine Coon. Because the Maine Coon is a natural breed, there are cats all over the world that resemble the Maine Coon. Thus, Maine Coon Adoptions cannot guarantee that our adoptable cats are, in fact, of Maine Coon parentage.
Maine Coons are native American longhaired cats, originally prized as skilled mousers on New England farms. Notwithstanding their working cat status, Maine Coons were the first indigenous American show cats. During the 1860s, farmers who bragged about the skill and intelligence of their Maine Coons started showing their cats at the Skowhegan Fair. Maine Coons were also listed in a show held in Boston in January 1878. In fact, a Maine Coon was chosen as Best Cat at the first major cat show in this country at New York's Madison Square Garden in 1895.
