A couple of years ago, we adopted the first of our current two Maine Coons. We already had a certified Persian, but felt he need some companionship. Casey, our first Maine Coon joined us. I felt that it ws important to learn as much as possible about this unique American Cat Breed. "That Yankee Cat the Maine Coon" by Marilis Hornidge was the answer. After reading the book several times, I am come to really appreaciate this breed. The book is written in a easy format and the information given, even though it was published 20 years ago, is still relevant today.
Excellent book and should be in every current and prospective Maine Coon's home.
Thank you, Marrilis for taking the time to write this book.
This book was written a while ago, but it is still overall the best Main Coon book I've found. It's not a very large book, and the photos could be better, but the information is thorough and very good.
I baught this book looking on information on Maine Coons before buying a couple of breeders. I had heard of this book some years back and it had great reviews. The book starts with all the perceived origions of the MC. It turns to personal stories about the cats then turns to health care. While I found the book interesting it is 25 Years and very out dated. There was no mension of hip displacia or of heart murmurs which are common defects in the MC and are genetic in origin. This book has many photos and gives a good idea of what a MC should look like and will give you an idea on how much the cat has changed in the last 25 years due to the showring. Although todays MC shows some improvement,they are a smaller thinner cat.
