my boyfriend's mother has a main coon and the thing is fat, lazy and has a terrible temperment. Everytime I try to pet him he tries to either bite or scratch me.

I don't know if he's representative of the breed, but I hate that cat. I would never, ever get a main coon.

Oh yeah, they shed. BIG TIME!

it is actually called a bengal or a snow leopard. I had one, and they are vicious.... do not bother, it will tear up all of your furniture, piss where it wants, and scare the hell out of any other animal that you have. beware...
