It is very important to keep your Maine Coon at an adequate weight. Unless your vet advises otherwise, you should try and keep your cat in the weight-range typical for his or her breed and gender.
By analyzing thousands of data points, we created the real-life Maine Coon weight distribution chart. For a typical female, the weight ranges from 3.8kg to 6.2kg and for a male from 5.3Kg to 8.1kg. That is, 8.4lbs to 13.7lbs for females and 11.7lbs to 17.9lbs for males.
The chart presents the percentage of the population that falls in a specific range. For example, the Maine Coon weight is such that approximately 25% of the male cats have a weight between 6kg and 8kg (between 12.22lbs and 17.6lbs) and 30% of the female cats have a weight between 4kg and 6kg (between 8.8lbs and 12.22lbs).
