Orange Maine Coon cats are large, furry, and have one of the most gorgeous coats in the cat kingdom.
But what makes them unique, and what do you need to know when getting an Orange Maine Coon cat?
On average, males can get 40 inches in length, 10 inches to 16 inches tall, and weigh between 15 lbs and 25 lbs. On the other hand, females can reach 40 inches long, 8 inches to 14 inches tall, and weigh between 10 lbs and 15 lbs.
Although these cats are orange, they are officially known as the Red Maine Coon by the Cat Fanciers Association. The breed is also known as ginger, marmalade, or Orange Maine Coons.
The red coats are one of the most popular Maine Coon colors. It’s interesting to note that you are more likely to get a male Orange Maine Coon cat (a one in two chance of having an orange coat) than a female (a one in three chance).
These cats are gentle, friendly, and extremely patient with children. This makes them a fantastic option if you are looking for another addition to the family.
As Orange Maine Coon cats are pedigree, they are pretty pricey, but it is well worth the extra expense. If you are buying a cat from a breeder, expect to pay between $800 and $1,500 per kitten.
Adopting a cat is a great way to help out, and you can expect to pay between $100 and $400 depending on if it is an older cat or a kitten.
