maine coon babies

Baby picture!

Just got the latest pic of my baby Maine Coon from the breeder. He was born on March 5, 2006 and he's six weeks old now. We'll be bringing him home on June 5th at 12 weeks. He won't be full grown or have his full coat until he's around 3 yrs old, when should be the size of his father - 22+ lbs. There's an old Native American legend that Maine Coon Cats are the result of a mating between a mountain lion and a raccoon. The mountain lion supposedly gives them their size and hunting ability and the raccoon gives them their stripes and love for water. Yes, these cats adore water! His father, Kenny, swims in his family's outdoor pool.

The Beatles did a song called "Rocky Raccoon", so we call him "Rocky Maine Coon".

Rocky is the first litten next to "Mom" and the one she's turned upside down to lick. These pics were taken when the kittens were two weeks old.
