The Maine Coon is probably one of the oldest natural breeds in North America. Several legends describe the origins of the breed. The most widespread tells that the maine coon is the result of a cross between cats and raccoons (colloquially coon in English, abbreviated racoon), which would explain their color (the most common is the brown tabby, that is to say brown tabby) and their very bushy tail. Of course, it is genetically impossible to make such a hybrid, but the breed keeps from this legend its name. The second argues that the Maine Coon is a descendant of the six angora cats sent by Marie Antoinette of Austria while she was preparing her escape to escape the French Revolution. These angoras were reportedly brought on Captain Samuel Clough de Wiscasset's boat Sally along with the Queen's other personal belongings. The angoras would then have mingled with local farm cats to give birth to the Maine Coon. Another theory is that the breed developed from crosses between local farm cats and other long- or medium-haired cats first imported by the Vikings around the year 1000. The Maine Coon would then descend from the Norwegian forest cat, which would explain their resemblance. This hypothesis is supported by the resemblance between Van Turks, Siberians, Norwegians and finally Maine Coons whose geographical origins correspond to the movements of the Vikings. This resemblance to Norwegian can also be explained by the fact that the winter climate of New England and Norway are identical and would therefore have led to the selection of the same physical specificities.
In the nineteenth century, Mrs. Pierce, one of the first owners of Maine Coon also hypothesized that these cats arrived on the shores of Maine by sea, not thanks to the Vikings, but rather by the wealthy families of Maine who then owned luxurious boats and traveled extensively.
They would have brought back from their expeditions many exotic pets, especially to amuse the children. Mrs. Pierce's second hypothesis was that angora cats were loaded aboard merchant ships to hunt rats. In both cases, they would have landed on the East Coast and mixed with local short-haired cats. Another possibility is that they were imported by European immigrants and were able to adapt to the living conditions and difficult climate of the region.
