Physical Features and Differences
A Maine Coon, on the other hand, has a stunning thick, shaggy coat and features solid or tabby coloring (over 75 different colors) and in a variety of patterns.
The Maine Coon cats appear to have large earmuffs (ear floof) covering their ears. Their ears are wide and pointed, similar to lynx ear tips, with tufts of fur around the ear.
Most domestic cats are small in stature, with the average feline weighing around 10 lbs in weight and reaching about 9 to 10 inches in length.
Their eyes are large and come in a range of shades from amber, copper, green, green-gold, and everything in between.
Besides looking rather cheeky, Maine Coons whiskers are the longest of any domesticated cat breed.
The luxurious long tail is another difference between the Maine Coon cat and regular cat. It’s super fluffy and long and can grow between 12 to 18 inches in length.
