How to choose a kitten

Ideally, the future owner of the Maine should be a regular at exhibitions and nurseries (especially important for those who plan to buy a show-class animal). A good help can be provided by the study of breed standards fixed by the felinological systems TICA, WCF, CFA.

Before buying, you should decide on the sex, class and type of animal. Maine cats are real intellectuals and neat, but with a strong character. Cats have more spontaneity, playfulness and goodwill. To date, a particular breed has two branches: classic American and European. It is worth opting for a representative of the first variety if you are looking for a charming wide-boned creature with round eyes and a lush tabby fur coat. Europeans are distinguished by an elongated body, a slanting cut of the eyes and, in general, a rather robber look. Their fur is not as rich as that of their American counterparts, but the tail is noticeably longer, and the tassels on the ears are more pronounced.

Maine kittens are recommended to be taken into the family at the age of 12-15 weeks. By this time, the little creature knows how to use the toilet and has already received the necessary vaccinations. It is best to opt for an active kitten that shows curiosity and willingly makes contact. Lethargy and apathy are signs of a tired, unhealthy animal.

If you want to know what type of temperament the little creature inherited, ask the kennel staff to introduce you to its mother. If an adult seems too excited and aggressive, it is better not to risk it and choose a kitten from other, more benevolent parents. Pay close attention to the animal's fur: it should be smooth, clean and silky. Do not forget to check with the breeder the brand of food with which your ward was treated, as well as the type of toilet litter used in the cattery's litter boxes. Knowing these points will greatly facilitate the process of adapting a small Maine.
