How much are black maine coons
It is believed that the most popular color of a furry coat is black, and in particular black silver and smoky cats. Price such beauties in nurseries depends on many points:
- The age of the animal – kittens from 2 to 5 are most expensive months (they quickly get used to a new house and new landlords hands). Breeding adult cats can be sold for a symbolic amount of several thousand rubles;
- Black Maine Coon cat usually costs more than cat of the same suit. It is boys who are more in demand due to their luxurious and impressive appearance and playfulness character;
- Belonging to a particular class. Not claiming awards and titles, you can purchase a pet cat, having minor flaws in appearance (small ears, light skeleton etc.). If you want the pet to take part in exhibitions and may have been allowed to breed, will have to to spend money on a brid-cat (for example, with slight flaws in color). Well, the most expensive Maine Coon is a show-class animal whose the data are as close as possible to those indicated in the pedigree Standard.
So, the cost of a pet kitten in nurseries starts at 10 thousand rubles. For the kid of the class, you have to say goodbye to the amount from 20-25 thousand rubles or more. A show-class animal will cost 50-70 thousand rubles or more.

So that Maine Coon will still have to turn to tribal nursery, especially if there is a desire to purchase an animal for tribal work or to participate in competitions.
