I just adopted a Maine Coon, a retired breeding cat. This magazine had more to offer than most books on the subject so overall it is a great buy. I bought it after looking through a bunch of cat books in the pet store. In addition to the required articles on Maine Coon history, choosing a Maine Coon kitten, and basic cat health care, the magazine has surprisingly helpful articles on avoiding/correcting behavior problems, how to groom a Maine Coon, nutrition & food selection (there are a million brands), and training (instructions on how to teach your cat to give you a high five, dance the Cha Cha Cha or play Three Blind Mice on the piano!) The nutrition & training articles alone were worth the cost of the magazine to me although I greatly enjoyed the article on Maine Coon coat colors.

Only one article fell way short and that was the one on "The Adoption Option". I have been searching for a Maine Coon for over a year now and it isn't that easy to find an adult. It is almost impossible to find a pure bred through PetFinder (which they recommend). The best you can do at shelters and Maine Coon rescue groups (which they also recommend) is the occasional senior purebred and what they think are Maine Coon mixes. There is no guarantee a mix will have the same personality characteristics as a purebred. I think "Maine Coon" has been substituted for what was originally "cat" in the main text of the article making it sound like there is a glut of Maine Coons in shelters looking for homes.

Instead I found a retired 2 year old online through a listing on Fancier's Breeder Referral List (FBRLRetired-not mentioned in this article) that find homes for altered adult pedigreed cats retired from breeding & showing.

We recently lost a dear Maine Coon cat that had been a friend for 13 years. There is no way to "replace" him, but we missed having no more than 1 cat(his sister) in the house. We found a breeder and now have 2 beautiful Maine Coons kittens that we delight in watching and caring for. This magazine was very helpful in getting us "up to speed" on the ways to handle kittens and their healthy development.

We have purchased a Maine Coon kitten for my niece. To learn how to take care of this wonderful breed, we bought several books. The "Maine Coons" magazine was the most informative of them all. It covers everything you need to know about the breed and more. It also has beautiful photos.

I've ordered a couple of other Maine Coon books, having finally getting a Maine Coon two years ago, and they're great. However, this magazine gets to the heart of the information that I was looking for without having to wade through the more "thorough" information provided in the other books I've bought. It's worth the $10
