Shopping for a Maine Coon cat tree is a little different to shopping for a cat tree for other cat breeds.
Reason being – the Maine Coon cat is arguably the biggest domestic cat breed in the world!
Currently, the two largest, longest cats on record with the Guinness Book of World Records are both Maine Coon cats.
Here, it nearly goes without saying that any Maine Coon cat tree you bring home had better be a cat tree suitable for Maine Coon cats’ length and weight!
In this article, we will take a look at sturdy, durable Maine Coon cat tree products you can trust to support your truly king-sized cat as she plays, leaps, climbs and hangs out to watch the world go by!
Maine Coon size cat tree
The first step when selecting a Maine Coon cat tree is evaluating just how large and long Maine Coon cats can grow.
There have been more than a few Maine Coon cat owners who have been quite surprised as their kitten started to grow….and grow….and then grow some more!
Maine Coon cats start out as petite fur balls just like all kitten breeds do.
But once a Maine Coon cat starts growing in earnest, he can grow to be as long as 40+ inches (longer than three feet) and can weigh 35+ pounds.
Finding a cat tree up to the job
However, it is also worth saying that these examples represent size extremes even for a Maine Coon cat.
If your Maine Coon cat is still a kitten and comes from average-size parents, breeders say adult female Maine Coon cats typically weigh 12 to 17 pounds fully grown.
Adult male Maine Coon cats generally weigh anywhere from 18 to 21 pounds.
But it is also important to be aware that the Maine Coon cat breed typically matures slowly, which means your already robust kitten may keep growing for up to five years before stabilizing.
Breeders say these are the most vital criteria for choosing a Maine Coon cat tree:
- Extremely sturdy base.
- Durable scratching areas (sisal material is ideal).
- Roomy perching platforms, hammocks and/or hiding areas.
