The Maine Coon is the largest domesticated cat breed. It has a distinctive physical appearance and valuable hunting skills. It is one of the oldest natural breeds in North America, specifically native to the US state of Maine,[3] where it is the official state cat.

No records of the Maine Coons exact origins and date of introduction to the United States exist, so several competing hypotheses have been suggested, the most credible suggestion being that it is closely related to the Norwegian Forest cat and the Siberian. The breed was popular in cat shows in the late 19th century, but its existence became threatened when long-haired breeds from overseas were introduced in the early 20th century. The Maine Coon has since made a comeback and is now one of the most popular cat breeds in the United States.

The Maine Coon is a large and sociable cat, hence its nickname, "the gentle giant". It is characterised by a prominent ruff along its chest, robust bone structure, rectangular body shape, an uneven two-layered coat with longer guard hairs over a silky satin undercoat, and a long, bushy tail. The breed's colors vary widely, with only lilac and chocolate disallowed for pedigree. Reputed for its intelligence and playful, gentle personality, the Maine Coon is often cited as having "dog-like" characteristics.[4][5] Professionals notice certain health problems recurring in the breed, including feline hypertrophy cardiomyopathy and hip dysplasia, but reputable breeders use modern screening methods to minimize the frequency of these problems.

A Maine Coon Polydactyl is a Maine Coon polydactyl cat. This variation is acceptable within general judging standards for the breed, and is even separately certified by some organizations like TICA

Sherry, You aroused my curiosity, I looked at a number of different
sites, and they mention a Lilac coon, but didn't feel that it was
important enough to give a description, let alone a photo. I
imagine it would be a silvery blue gray cat, that depends on the
lighting as to how the color Lilac would show up. I saw some that
were close. Thanks for the visit and comment. Bib

Thanks for the visit and comment Olando, so sorry to hear
about the loss of your best friend. I know how you feel, as
I lost my Scottie, a couple of years ago. If I weren't so old
I would think about finding another, but I am too old to
house train a younger dog, sure miss her, she was a
wonderful companion. We put her to rest in the back yard,
and thus far, she has 5 tennis balls on her grave, I found
them in various ground cover beds in the back yard, and
when I do I take them over and place them on the ground
above her resting place. Bib

The information says that lilac and chocolate colors are disallowed for pedigree. I know what "chocolate" would look like (beautiful, in my opinion), but how would "lilac" be described? Sherry

Oh it looks like my late cat, the best friend I have ever had.
