16. So whatever you do…


17. Never, EVER adopt a Maine Coon!



If you do decide that you want a Maine Coon, see if you can find one in a shelter before deciding to buy.


If you want to get a Maine Coon kitten, make sure that you don’t support the abusive kitten mills and backyard breeder industry by getting your new family member through a trusted breeder. Ethical breeders will want to meet you several times before they sell you a kitten, will let you see the kitten with their mom, brothers and sisters and will raise their cats in a home environment.
