Maine Coon Cat Coat

This cat has a farm cat type coat! It is functional and a bit shaggy not well manicured let's say.

The Maine Coon cat coat requires relatively little maintenance. It is water repellant (aren't all cat coats the same?).

The cat associations have allowed a very wide range of cat coat colours and types, which might have made the more traditional cat fanciers a little unhappy - I am not sure.

The coat colors and patterns include - there are many more:
  • Red Shaded Tabby
  • Blue and White (blue is dilute black).
  • Maine Wave - these are Rex coat cats. They are controversial. The wavey coat is caused by a genetic mutation. There are a number of rex cats such as the LaPerm and Devon Rex to name two. The coat has not guard hairs and is surprising to see this coat on a Maine Coon. This coat is not accepted by the cat associations.
  • Black Smoke (see "Quin" below)
  • Odd-eyed White
  • Silver tabbies - these are apparently preferred by TICA (USA association). The cat's face is more angular and larger ears set higher on the head.
