Maine Coons have a long and luxurious coat of fur that doesn’t actually require all that much work. A good brush once or twice a week should do the trick. They don’t have a preference on the type of household they live in and are affectionately called gentle giants. They are very accepting of strangers as they are incredibly affectionate and social. Though they will spread their love around wherever it is welcome, they will pick one owner as their absolute favorite and choose them over anyone else. This is one of the few cats that will not only play fetch with you but actually allow you to walk them on a leash.
