Maine Coon cats are large and energetic cats which sometimes weigh 11.3
kilograms (25 pounds); their average weight is 6 to 9 kilograms (13-20 pounds)
for adult males and less (7-11 pounds) for females. A full size Maine Coon cat
often takes longer to reach full size than for most cats, usually reaching full
size at age three or four.
The most common color/pattern of the Maine Coon cat is brown with tabby
markings. Maine Coon cats are recognized in all colors except for chocolate,
lavender, ticked tabby, and the point-restricted ("Siamese") pattern. Their eye
color also varies widely. All patterns of the Maine Coon cat may have green,
green-gold, or gold. Blue eyes, or one blue eye with one gold eye, are possible
in white coat Maine Coon cats.
