Table of Contents

Whether you’re a first-time cat lover or just searching for the ultimate companion, take some time to appreciate the striking beauty of—and learn more about—the incredible black Maine coon cat!

What is so special about Maine Coon cats?

Maine Coon cats are truly an incredible breed! They’re known for their oversized furry tails, enormous size, and gentle disposition. These cats make great companions due to their loyalty and individual personalities, which you could say is uncommon among your average housecat. And while they’re more laid-back than other breeds, they’re highly intelligent and enjoy playing with toys like mice and balls of string.

 Plus, they’re typically healthier than other breeds as they typically have fewer genetic diseases. With the Maine Coon cat by your side, you can rest assured that your four-legged friends will have a calm temperament and friendly nature that’ll last for years to come.

How rare are black Maine Coon cats?

Black Maine Coon cats are quite a rare find. Unlike some other cat breeds, they don’t come in a variety of different colors like grey or brown – they’re either black or not black. Black Maine Coons are particularly unique as their coloring is completely uniform whereby most cats have at least a few white hairs scattered throughout their coats.

While the specific gene mutation responsible for these cats’ all-black fur has been identified, it remains exceptionally uncommon which still makes the cats hard to track down. However, with enough patience, dedication, and determination, these elusive feline purrers can be found and make wonderful companions!

What is the rarest color of a Maine Coon cat?

The rarest Maine Coon color is one of the three colors supported by the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA), which include brown tabby, silver tabby, and red tabby. However, not all colors are accepted or recognized by the CFA, despite still being common Maine Coon colors.

These ‘unrecognized’ colors are generally referred to as “party or patched” and feature combinations of silver and gold shadings on a solid background, for example, lavender and white or blue and cream. Blue-eyed whites are another rarity but not necessarily the rarest – though they look beautiful with their silky white fur!

Generally, a cat needs to meet certain points out of 100 in both its body conformation and color to qualify for championship status within the CFA standard. So while some colors may be considered particularly unique and eye-catching, they could also miss out on this qualification from the association.

What is the personality of a Maine Coon cat?

Maine Coon cats are the gentle giants of the feline world, often affectionately dubbed as ‘gentle giants.’ They have outgoing, talkative, and social personality that is combined with plenty of affection and gentle nature.

These cats are known to be loving, loyal, and even protective companions who are happy to show their owner where they want to be petted or scratched – they even use their paws as if they were hand-shaking! Though they take some time before trusting a new person, once they do trust them, there is no going back! Maine Coon cats adore physical contact so much that they love chasing their owners around and curling up near them in bed or at their feet while sitting on the sofa.

Additionally, these cats form deep relationships with loyal pets or family members, developing real bonds with them.

What color eyes do black Maine Coon cats have?

Black Maine Coon cats are a unique and magnificent breed, made even more distinct by their alluring eye color. While most breeds of cats have yellow or green eyes, the mesmerizing hue of black Maine Coons is usually either copper, orange, or sometimes aqua.

Although they can vary in shade, they always add an extra level of mystery and charm to these majestic felines. So if you’re considering adopting a black Maine Coon cat, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the striking color of their amazing eyes!

Do Maine Coons have bushy tails?

Maine Coons are one of the most iconic, beloved cat breeds in America. Known for their luxurious coats, sizable ears, and fearless dispositions, Maine Coons are an adored feline. But did you know that their bushy tails have made them even more popular among cat lovers? Not only do these cats boast a beautiful twitching appendage, but their length and shape provide perfect insulation given their native climate: Maine! So, yes, as we can see, Maine Coons do indeed have bushy tails that are both beautiful and practical!


We have seen just how stunningly beautiful black Maine Coon cats are, but their aesthetics are just one of the many reasons why they make such great pets. Maine Coons are highly social and affectionate, and figure out quickly what they like and want. What’s more, these cats can be very independent and enjoy lounging around the house as much as playing with toys or cuddling up next to you as you read a book. Ultimately, whether it’s black Maine Coons that capture your heart or another breed of cat entirely, consider adopting one of these lovable creatures from your local shelter and give them the chance at a warm home that all cats deserve. With a handful of treats and a lot of love and understanding, any cat can make a wonderful addition to your family.
