The Maine Coon is a large cat. They have a short, dense coat that can come in many different colors. They also have other large physical features such as large ears and a long, flexible nose. These attributes make the Maine Coon an excellent hunter, as well as an excellent guardian of their family. They are known for being independent thinkers who are not afraid to voice their own opinions. They also tend to be very loyal to their owners and family members.
