Maine Coons are a slowing maturing breed, taking up to 5 years to fully mature. But, the kitten should be more than 5 lbs at almost 6 months of age. Although I bred Norwegian Forest Cats, I have owned 2 Maine Coons, both males one was 25 lbs and the other maybe 15. From my own personal experience not all Maine Coons will be over 20 lbs. You might want to have it checked out by your vet to make sure there are no probems. Maine Coons are known for heart problems, at least this was my personal experience with them. Both of my coons died from heart problems.
hmm yeah I really need to get him to a vet. He's kinda tall though when he stand up so I think that may be a good sign : ) Hopefully the vet can tell me if his color will turn pure black instead of the greyish color he is now too
I wouldn't count on the vet to be able to tell you about the cat's color or too much besides about the cat's health concerns or things he may be prone to. I have found that regular domestic short hairs are far more common for vets than purebreds and my vet doesn't know much specific to my persians. She researches for me when she needs to but she was amazed that my lilac point blue eyed himalayan has the exact same parents as my copper eyed pure black persian. Not even a breeder can be sure how colors are going to turn out or how big they will be. They can only guess based on experience, the genes their cats carry and how their kittens usually turn out. One of mine is much larger than we expected. She seemed to be a toy size when she was little but she has turned out to be average for the breed. Which is fine because I wasn't looking for a specific size. But I can see why you would expect a Maine Coon to be big. That's what people are usually hoping for when they choose them. Maybe he will have a growth spurt. LOL
I hope so. I don't know both his parents were pretty big and his brother was also bigger so hopefully I'm just imagining things. When I wieghed my other cat I got 5 punds and the vet got 8.3 So maybe he is heavier then I think. : ) I want him to be like a tiger haha
