Friday cat-blogging: Molly glamor shot

with 2 comments


A glamor shot of Miss Molly. She’s growing up fast. She can now leap from the chaise to the sofa (and back), can jump up to The Wife’s lap without having to use her back claws (for which The Wife is grateful), and can jump up onto the kitchen counter. When Sophie did that and The Wife approached, Sophie would jump to the floor and get into petting position (prone on her tummy). Molly instead waits to be lifted down.

  1. She’s an adorable kitten. Maine Coons get to be pretty large don’t they? Did your breeder give you any idea of how big she’ll get?

  2. They do get large. According to Wikipedia:

    Maine Coons are very large and energetic cats, sometimes weighing up to around 11-12 kilograms (25 pounds); the average weight is 6 to 9 kilograms (13-20 pounds) for adult males and less (7-11 pounds) for females. Male Maine Coons may grow to a length in excess of 1 meter (40 inches); the longest cat on record is a Maine Coon 122cm (48 inches) in length[1]. Growth to full size often takes longer than for most cats, with Maine Coons usually reaching full size at age four or five.

    FWIW, Megs (a British Shorthair) is 9 lbs. So now I can say she’s as big as a Maine Coon cat.
