Maine Coon males are generally pretty laid back and friendly. A weight of approximately 14 to 18 pounds is the average for the breed. A breeder cannot tell you how big your male kitten is going to be when they are fully grown, it is impossible to predict without a crystal ball. They may be able to tell you what the lines typically produce but a final weight for anything man or beast is never a given.
There are however many many boys that weigh far more than this, at the time of writing I have personally seen several Maine Coons that weigh 25 to 29 pounds, aside from one, these are not overweight cats but very big boned individuals. There is a big difference between an overweight cat and a big cat, neuters often seem to get bigger than entire males.
We are often asked do males spray and roam, the answer often simply yes, unless they are neutered. Having your cat snipped at an early age can prevent these habits from forming in the first place so the earlier the better. Despite many thoughts an unaltered cat does not get bigger. There has been much research into this matter and many articles are available online, just search 'Early Neutering'. If you would like links or information please just ask us.
