United Maine Coon Cat Association

The  United Maine Coon Cat Association is a Maine Coon cat club that is affiliated to one of the cat associations, the CFF, the Cat Fanciers' Federation, Inc. which is a "feline registry with clubs and judges in northeastern portions of the United States".

The word "united" in its title comes from the "formulation of a unified standard" (breed standard) for the Maine Coon. At the time of the club's creation (1972) there were a many breed standards that were slightly different. This is because there were many cat associations who wrote their own breed standards.

The intention in 1972 was to create one breed standard - the master guidelines regarding appearance - for all the various cat associations.
