Once they are grown, you may drastically cut back on the quantity of food they are allowed to eat or they will get way too fat.
Maine Coon kittens are not born with long fur. They get more fluffy each month, and by 1 year of age they have approximately 1” long fur with a somewhat bushy tail. And they are pretty. But, they are “Drop Dead Gorgeous” at age 2. With a huge ruff around their head and 4” long fur with a huge bushy tail. But, they are still not fully grown! They will continue to grow until age 4. Many people ask for a Maine Coon with long fur. Well, they all will have long fur, they just do not develop the long fur coat till age 2.
This breed is extremely interactive with people, but they do go through a “stand offish” period somewhat like independent teenagers. Usually between 6 months and 1 year. As they mature and calm down, they become much more “lap cats” and the affection level increases. They are extremely busy as young kittens. Extremely busy!! If you have anything of value that’s breakable, I suggest putting it away the first year.
