Female Maine Coons are equally as laid back as the males in most cases. Weight expectations for females are considerably less than males with the average been between 10 and 14 pounds, again this is only an average.
We are often asked for males in preference to females not only because of size but a lot of people are under the misconception that males are more affectionate than females, I personally beg to differ. I defy anyone thinking along those lines to come and spend some time with these girls then tell me its true.
More than once we have been asked for a male tortie or tortoiseshell kitten. The colour gene relating to tortie and red is a sex linked gene, therefore you don't get tortie boys
only in rare cases (1 in several thousand) where an extra chromosome is present. The equivalent of a tortie female is a red boy. It is however possible to get red females through selective breeding/genetics and they are not rare contrary to belief.
Like males, females that are not neutered can sometimes spray too, especially whilst in call (also called in season). The girls can call many many times throughout the year, sometimes as often as every couple of weeks. If you would like any further information please dont hesitate to ask.
