Picture of 2 young, grey Maine Coons being held

This Maine Coon picture caught my eye. They've got to be siblings. They look young but also very large for their age which is pretty typical of Maine Coons. They are said to keep growing for the first four years of lives. The picture was probably taken a few years ago. I'd expect them to adults and in nice homes. And I also expect that they'll be very large domestic cats with a real presence.

In the photograph you can see why the cat fancy always refers to grey (gray) as blue. There is a faint tinge of blue in their coats.

The Maine cat can have a massive range of coat colours and patterns. It is recognised by the cat fancy in all colours and divisions of the traditional category.  I have a page which lists all the coat colours! If it interests you, you can see it by clicking on this link.

Grey is a diluted 'self' colour (black). Click on the link below to read about self-colours.
