10 Cat Breeds That Might Cause Unexpected Problems for Their Owners

5) Maine Coon Cats

Maine Coon cats have long, dense fur and they are often referred to as “gentle giants” because of their size and laid-back temperament. They’re also known for their intelligence, loyalty, and friendliness.
Maine Coons are usually very social and get along well with other pets and children. However, they can become territorial if they aren’t properly socialized. If not socialized, they can develop behavioral problems such as aggression, scratching furniture or carpets, and spraying.
Maine Coons also require a lot of grooming due to their long fur. They need to be brushed at least twice a week in order to keep their coats healthy and free of mats. They may also need professional grooming every four to six weeks.
Overall, Maine Coon cats can be a great addition to any family, but potential owners should be aware of their size and the potential problems that can arise from not properly socializing them.
