Black Maine Coons

The black Maine Coon cat is stealthy, sleek, and intriguingly beautiful. Although it’s not common to see a solid black Maine Coon, they sure are easy on the eyes when you do see them.

There is something incredibly mesmerizing about  a solid black cat, especially a Maine Coon.  They’re sleek and shiny and just have a special element that no other color possesses. Once you have one in your home, you’ll know exactly what I mean. 

Even more beautiful than a black Maine Coon adult is a black Maine Coon kitten.

Black and White Maine Coon

The black and white Maine Coon is usually classified as a bi-color. The distribution of white can be very small, like a white locket on the chest. It can also be in abundance, creating a “van” pattern. When we speak of any cat “with white” or “bi-color”, it is indicated by the amount of white that can be seen on the cat. 

The black and white Maine Coon can also be referred to as a “tuxedo Maine Coon” and that is certainly a phrase that you’ll hear a lot when you a black and white cat.  The tuxedo markings are represented by white fur on the paws, chest, and sometimes a cute mustache.

Black Smoke

When we refer to the “smoke” color in a Maine Coon cat, we’re referring to the silver undercoat that is seen on a solid color cat. It’s not always easy to detect a smoke undercoat in kittens, which can develop and become more prominent with age. See the evidence by checking the cat’s hair shaft roots.

Black smoke is the most popular color of smoke. However, there are many other beautiful smoke-colored variations. An actual smoke color will have silver roots to the hair shaft.

NOTE: The silver coat in a solid-colored Maine Coon is called smoke. In a tabby cat, it’s referred to as silver. It’s the same gene that produces this color. It’s called the silver inhibitor.

Sometimes, people refer to the black smoke as the black and grey Maine Coon cat.

Black Tabby

There’s something so regal and beautiful about a Black Tabby Maine Coon. This very traditional look is the most sought-after Maine Coon color. They also have the highest win rate at the TICA Cat shows.

The classic version of the black tabby presents a black coat with warm brown swirls as its pattern. Some people will refer to the pattern as a”Bullseye” pattern since you can see a perfectly round spot in the ribcage area. The black classic tabby is also known as the brown Maine Coon tabby, and some will call him “marble”.

The black mackerel tabby Maine Coon will have stripes on its body and legs that resemble fish bones. These cats are marked more like a tiger.

What is the difference between a tabby and a Maine Coon?

People sometimes mistake a “tabby” with a Maine Coon cat, especially if the cat has long hair. Tabby is not a breed of cat, but a coat pattern that can occur in any cat.  Tabby simply means that the cat has stripes on its body. Tabby cats can be black, red, blue or cream. 

The first Maine Coon (pet) I ever owned was a Black Classic Tabby named Finlay. When I went to visit the breeder, she showed me the entire litter. They were all black classic tabbies. I had no idea that these cats came in so many colors at the time.  

If you’re looking for a Purebred Maine Coon, know how to tell if the kitten you’re getting is a real Maine Coon. Don’t let a tabby pattern confuse you.

Black Silver Maine Coon

The black silver Maine Coon has become extremely popular over the last couple of years. Maine Coon Breeders all over the world have put an emphasis on producing Maine Coons in stunning silver colors and patterns.

The silver Maine Coons can have different levels of silver, classifying them as either silver, shaded, or shell. The amount of silver on each strand of hair will determine which class they belong.Silver Maine Coon kittens are typically the first ones to get chosen in a litter, regardless of the other colors available.

What is a Silver Maine Coon?

A silver Maine Coon is a cat with a coat that has dark gray and black hairs with light-colored tipping. There are different shades of silver, such as pale, shaded and shell. Shell is the lightest of the silver banded fur. 

Black Tortie

The black tortie is one of those Maine Coon colors that is an absolute crowd pleaser. It certainly is one of my favorite colors!

With her dark mysterious black coat, highlighted with fiery red, she is sure to have a tortietude. In case you were wondering, “tortietude” IS a real thing.

This coat is considered a “solid” coat, also known as non-agouti, since there are no tabby markings on a tortie.

A black tortie with white Maine Coon is the technical term for a calico Maine Coon. With the calico Maine Coon kitten being known for their sassy attitudes, they’re always a family favorite for people that like high-energy, bossy little girls.

A Black Tortie with white embodies a perfect combination of red, white, and black fur.

What is a calico pattern Maine Coon?

A calico pattern is identical to the tortoiseshell pattern but with an additional white color mixed in causing the black and red/orange colors to be arranged in a more distinct pattern.

Black Smoke Tortie

Ah yes, the black smoke tortie Maine Coon. Imagine a very beautiful black tortie with a white long fur undercoat. One that makes her shine almost with a brilliant silvery glimmer. This would be the black smoke tortie.

Calico cats are generally one of people’s favorite colors of Maine Coon cats. When the smoke undercoat is also present you can see why these beauties are easy to fall head over heels in love with.

If you’ve been considering a calico Maine Coon cat, then the black smoke tortie with white is one to look for. She will have all of the luxuries of the calico, with the added beauty of the silver undercoat. Let’s not forget the sass that comes with the torties that we all love and adore.

Black Torbie

A black torbie Maine Coon is a female cat that has fur colors of red and black. She will also have tabby markings.

The black torbie with white Maine Coon is complex yet stunning at the same time. She has a combination of red fur, black fur and white fur. Additionally, she has stripes in her red and black fur which makes her a torbie.

Torbie is an abbreviated version of a tortie and a tabby in one. This means that she doesn’t have a solid coat, but a pattern to identify the tabby. The pattern can be classic, mackerel tabby, or spotted. She can also be a ticked tabby.

An easy way to tell a tortie from a torbie is to check for white eyeliner around the eyes, and white lining of the ears. These features are shown by a torbie, but not a tortie.

Blue Maine Coons

Blue is a diluted version of black. In order for a kitten to be a blue or a variation of blue, both parents must be of blue color, or carry the dilute gene.  Quite often, blue Maine Coon cats are referred to as the grey Maine Coon cat. For good reason, since the coat is definitely grey in color.

Red Maine Coons

The red Maine Coon cat is another large crowd favorite (also known as the orange Maine Coon) . They speak more to the lovers of traditional colors and capture the hearts of ginger lovers across the globe. Red coats can be challenging to identify if you’re not familiar with the markings of a solid red. Due to their ghost markings (they appear to be that of a tabby) you can easily mistake them for a red tabby.

To clearly identify a solid red Maine Coon, look at the lining of the ears. They should be red, not white. Additionally solid red Maine Coons do not have a white muzzle.

If you’re unsure about whether you have a solid red or a red tabby Maine Coon, you can check the pedigree. If both parents are non-agouti, then solid red is the only possibility.

Red Silver Maine Coons are simply magnificent. They reduce the richness of the red color in the coat by adding a sparkly silver undercoat. In order to produce red silvers, at least one parent must have the inhibitor gene. This is a dominant trait and will be passed down to the kittens.

What determines the colors of a Maine Coon kitten?

The color of a Maine Coon kitten is determined by it’s genetic makeup, which is inherited from it’s parents. The two primary pigments that contribute the cat’s color are eumelanin (which produced black and brown colors) and pheomelanin (which produces red). Additional genes like the dilution gene and agouti will determine whether the cat is blue, cream, tabby or a solid color.ย 

Male kittens always obtain color genes from their mother. The male offspring in a litter will always be either the color of the mother or the dilute form of the mom’s color. If the mother is red and black, then she is able to produce red and black male kittens.ย 

Furthermore, female kittens will be a combination of both parents’ colors. With this information, it’s easy to predict the expected colors of kittens from the parents.

If you’re in love with any of the Maine Coon colors you see on this page, head over to our available kittens’ page and see if your favorite color is available. If you have your eye on a particular color and you’re hoping to get a kitten from one of your preferred Maine Coon Breeders, talk to them about what colors they can produce and ensure they have what you’re looking for!

    1. Thank you so much! Sure you can post a link to a Facebook Group. Is it
      Your group?

  1. Oh, how I’ve enjoyed your blog! My darling companion of 18 wonderful years (a tuxedo cat) just passed. I happened on your post about the Cattery you and your husband made,, just lovely.
    Also , looked at these magnificent beings you have raised.
    Thank you for sharing . The loss of my darling Tate has been agonizing and it was healing to see such loved a cared for cats. I can’t complain truly Tate never was sick for 18 years and was the king of all he surveyed! I miss him terribly.
    Thanks so much,
    Lise

  2. I would love to get a wall poster showing all the different colors of the Maine Coon. Do you know where I can Find one? Thank you,Alice

  3. My new kitty is listed as n 22 03. His back is truly black but front view he is such the brown tabby. I love your listing of colors it was exactly what I googled and did not expect to find. Harley has white chest, paws and paws plus a white tummy. I would love if you could a photo of him.

  4. Love your website! Such great information! I’ve been looking for a Maine Coon girl (like your Tiffany) for years! Currently have two beautiful girls, Lulu and Bagheera (not Maine Coon), they’re spoiled rotten? I’m in Tallahassee.

  5. I love your website! I’ve had many of my questions answered just by reading it. Tha k you!
    I have one question. …what does “Pale” mean in the maine coons coloring? My breedee has said my kitten is a Pale Silver Tortie.

    1. There are several different shades of silver. “Pale” means that they are a lighter than average shade of silver – or that more of the hair shaft is silver, giving them a “pale” appearance.

  6. Yes thatโ€™s what Iโ€™ve been told! Thank you for responding! Nice to know I have somewhere to come with my Maine Coon questions.

  7. Hi, my latest rescue, Ruffles is definitely a MC, just not sure what color….she is definitely part tabby and has huge floofy feet and orange splotches on her back mixed with light/dark gray, beige, white, black tones overall. She has the big neck shawl and chortles like they do. I’d love you to see a couple pics of her…..can I send? Would love your opinion. We love MCs and have had several others (rescues). Her colors are baffling. White chest, stomach, tip of tail, splotchy back. tabby face etc etc. Your kitties are so beautiful….

  8. Hello, we adopted a female MC that looks like 2 cats in one! Her face is classic MC tabby, black/gray//beige/etc with the classic “M” on her forehead. Her back however is very mottled with colors including copper/brown/black/beige in a very mottled pattern, not big patches. Her name is now “Ruffles” and she was in a shelter for over 2 months! She has a huge/long mostly light-gray ruffle around her neck and huge hairy paws. Her weight is pretty small, say under 9#. I’ve been trying to figure out what color she would be called; I was thinking dilute MC tortoise shell. Does that sound right?
    I love looking at your babies SO MUCH!

  9. โ€œBelleโ€ was the most wonderful Girl and is gone but Surely not ever forgotten. She was 11 yrs old, rambunctious kitten who grew into a true and loving companion. I never knew or had a cat like her; she met me at the door when I arrived home.
