CATEGORY: Traditional

DIVISION: All

COLOR: All

PERMISSIBLE OUTCROSSES: None

Overall balance and proportion are

essential to the Maine Coon and no one

feature should dominate the eye’s

attention over any other.

 

HEAD:

Shape: Broad, modified wedge. Size

in proportion to body. Slightly longer than

wide. Distinct muzzle break can be seen

under high prominent cheekbones .

Eyes: Large, slightly oval, appear

round when wide open. Outer corner of eye

points toward outer base of ear. Wide-set.

Color: Any shade of green and/or gold. No

relation to coat color. Blue and odd-eyes

accepted in whites and particolors.

Ears: Large, wide at base with outer

base set just slightly farther back than inner

base. Outer base just above the level of the

top of the eye. Outside edges have a very

slight outward tilt that is not past eleven and

one o'clock. Set fairly high on head with

inner edge of bases no more than one ear's

width apart. Taller than the width at base

but still in balance with head length.

Moderately pointed ears appear taller due

to lynx tips. Furnishings extend beyond

outer edge of ear.

Chin: Wide and deep enough to

complete square look of muzzle. Firm, in

line with upper lip.

Muzzle: Square.

Profile: Gently curving forehead.

Gentle concave curve at bridge of nose

flowing into a smooth nose line. Slight nose

bump allowed in kittens.

 

BODY:

Torso: Large, long, substantial,

rectangular, equal in breadth from

shoulders to hips. Broad chest. Level back.

Females may be noticeably smaller than

males.

Boning: Substantial.

Musculature: Substantial, powerful.

Legs: Medium length to form a

rectangle with the body.

 

Feet:

MC: Large, round and well-tufted.

MCP: Large, well-tufted. Additional

toes allowed on either fore or hind paws or

both. Paws may be mitten or patty foot.

Symmetrical expression preferred.

Maximum of 7 toes on any one foot.

Tail: At least as long as the body. Wide

at base and tapering to tip with full, flowing

fur.

 

COAT/COLOR/PATTERN:

Length: Uneven; shorter on shoulders,

gradually lengthening down the back and

sides. Long, full, shaggy belly fur and

britches. Tail fur long, full, flowing. Frontal

ruff becomes more developed with age.

Texture: All-weather coat. A slight

undercoat gives the coat body but coat still

falls smoothly. Not cottony.

Color: Particolors must have some

white on all four feet.

 

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

The Maine

Coon is America's native longhaired cat.

The breed, with its essentially amiable

disposition, developed through a natural

selection process where only the fittest

survived. It should always be remembered

that the Maine Coon developed basically as

a "working cat" able to fend for itself in

rough, woody terrain and under extreme

climatic conditions. The Maine Coon is a

large breed with big ears, broad chest,

substantial boning, a long, hard-muscled,

rectangular body and a long, flowing tail,

and large feet with tufts.

 

ALLOWANCES:

Standard favors the male.

Allowance MUST be made for a significant

size difference between the male and the

female. Type should not be sacrificed for

size. Breed is slow to mature. Allow for

tight ear set in kittens and wider ear set in

mature adults. Polydactyly is a trait with

variable expression and may produce

anything from a single extra dew claw

to extra toes on each foot. Any of these

expressions are acceptable and there is

no preference for more rather than

fewer additional toes. Polydactyl mitten

paws may appear to toe out.

 

PENALIZE:

Eyes: Slanted, almond-shaped Flat

tops on openings.

Ears: Very close, set straight up.

Narrow bases. Wide-set, flared.

Chin: Weak or receding, narrow, lack of

depth.

Muzzle: Prominent whisker pads.

Profile: Straight. Roman nose.

Pronounced bump.

Torso: Narrow.

Tail: Short tail.

Feet: Toes (excluding dewclaws) not

touching the table.

Coat: Lack of slight undercoat or belly

shag . Overall even coat.

Color: Obvious lockets.

 

Temperament must be unchallenging; any sign of

definite challenge shall disqualify. The cat may

exhibit fear, seek to flee, or generally complain

aloud but may not threaten to harm. In

accordance with Show Rules, ARTICLE

SIXTEEN, the following shall be considered

mandatory disqualifications: a cat that bites

(216.9), a cat showing evidence of intent to

deceive (216.10), adult whole male cats not

having two descended testicles (216.11), cats

with all or part of the tail missing , except as

authorized by a board approved standard

(216.12.1), cats with more than five toes on each

front foot and four toes on each back foot, unless

proved the result of an injury or as authorized by

a Board approved standard (216.12.2), visible or

invisible tail faults if Board approved standard

requires disqualification (216.12.4), crossed

eyes if Board approved standard requires

disqualification (216.12.5), total blindness

(216.12.6), markedly smaller size, not in keeping

with the breed (216.12.9), and depression of the

sternum or unusually small diameter of the rib
