Maine Coon cats have beautiful, long hair and long manes that need to be brushed and maintained to prevent tangles and matts. We try to Netflix and chill and brush our cats at least a few times a week.
Although this may seem like a daunting, time consuming task, it usually only takes us about 15 minutes each time and with some patience and persistence, our Maine Coons have grown to love being brushed!
I am frequently asked if Maine Coons shed a lot. They do shed, but if you keep a regular schedule brushing them, which removes their dead hair, the shedding will be minimal.
