Our 9 yo Wile E has always been rather vocal for a Maine Coon. My wife gets up first in the mornings and goes downstairs to feed our two MC's. Wile E's routine every morning, after he eats, is to sit in the hallway downstairs and call me. We have a back and forth conversation about 'who knows what'. I think he learned this from listening to me and my wife talk back and forth from upstairs/downstairs. He is so loud and his inflections sound almost human. I've never heard a cat do this other than him. Has anyone experienced this with their Maine Coon?

Many years ago I had a Mainecoon named Oop. My girlfriend cracked up every morning because Oop and I had a routine while I made breakfast and got her fed too. The cat and I could carry on a nonsense conversation for 20-30 minutes and then do the same thing next morning.

I wish I had video of it. Classic comedy entertainment!

oh yes,  Melody is extremely vocal.  It took us by surprise because, in a conversation with the breeder, she mentioned how she disliked Siamese cats because they were so noisy!!  Made us, falsely, assume that Maine Coons were quiet.  NOT.  She cackles, meows, cries, and talks back!  I agree, I think we encouraged it by talking to her so much ourselves.  Oh and she snores too!

It's funny that all the descriptions of Maine Coons say they have small voices for such big cats. Dixie, our female, fits that description most of the time but she occasionally gets really talkative. I love the back and forth conversations with Wile E. I think he's part human.
