  2. I love Maine coon cats, I had a Maine coon cat for twelve years he was white all over no other markings, but white. He died in my arms of kidney problems. I had him to so many vets, they could not do anything too help. I still cry at night when I go to bed. He would sleep with me holding my hand. I’am looking for a huge white Maine coon about 25-30 lbs when full grown. I love them so much as I spoil them being my best friend forever. Please see if you can locate a kitten like the one I described for me. Happy together forever.

    • Your comment touched me. Lovely comment. Great cats too. Of all the purebred cats the MC is my favorite. I hope you are successful in your search. Somebody might see your comment. I hope so.

    • Spencer I’m so sorry for your loss.

      Perhaps Maine Coon breeder clubs in your area could help you find a white kitten? Or perhaps a pedigree rescue may have an adult availabable for re-homing?

  3. I have a beautiful Maine Coon who was found by a coworker of my sister. He was not a year old and he weighed only 4 lbs. He had been hit by a car and was in pretty sad shape. He came to us and we now have him up to almost 14 lbs.

  4. The heaviest healthy weight Maine Coons weigh in at 35 pounds, but they are far and few between. My Nicky was HUGE and he was 25 pounds at his heaviest and not a ounce of fat on him either. I know that the last two world’s longest cats were both 35 pounds and both came from breeders. It could be a bred-for-trait, but I know the Leo of Vermiso Cats (now defunct) was not bred for size. They Vermiso Cats was a small family operation who just loved the breed and worked hard to keep them healthy. I know we have a handful of huge cats on Really HUGE Cats/Really CUTE Kittens and Cubs on Flickr. No ideas on the weights, but I’m guessing none are bigger than 28 pounds. There are some Russian Main Coons that are just enormous! If they aren’t bred for size, there must be something in the water there.

    So… I agree the larger Maine Coons are the exception to the rule, but they can occur naturally. I am dying to see picture of Mr. Fee. He most certainly could of been 32 pounds.

    Thanks Michael!

    • Thanks for the additional info Dan. I agree that exceptionally huge Maine Coons reach 35 pounds (now I do!). I think that a regular big Maine Coon would be around 25 pounds, which is already more than twice the average. It is what makes this breed standout and so popular, amongst other admirable qualities. Hope you are okay.
