Sex of Maine Coon has big impact on personality

The Maine Coon, it is said, has a personality that is particularly dependent on the sex of the individual cat.

It appears that the females are "matriarchs-in-the-making".  A matriarch I reminded myself is a  "woman who is the head of a family or tribe".  Although they are charming and affectionate they like to get their own way. And they get it with a quiet determination. The females are excellent hunters.

In contrast, the males are more like boys! They are rather innocent and boyish in their behavior.

This comes from breeders and Maine Coon caretakers and guardians. So you gotta believe it! Although it is a generalisation. Cats have individual characters so there will be a wide range of personalities. I guess that is obvious.
