All cats want their own bed. They may choose to sleep on the furniture, on your bed, in a box or a paper bag, but they still must have a cozy and comfy bed all their own! The Maine Coon is a large cat, known as the Gentle Giant because of how big Maine coons can get, so you know, you are going to want a nice sized bed for your baby.
As we also know from shopping for your own bed, not all beds are created equal. There are also so many types available for the Maine Coon as well as other felines. You have choices between memory foam, cotton batting, feathers or down, synthetic filling.
On top of all those choices, you also need to decide what the bed should look like. This means, it would be wiser to know what your cat is like, their personality traits.

Cat beds help establish a routine with your Maine Coon. It encourages the Maine Coon to stick to one place only when he or she sleeps. There is no doubt that your Maine Coon is going to want to lay down on your bed, maybe on the furniture and you will need to attempt to remind her that she has her own bed.
Keep in mind that it is actually better for your health and your cat’s health to sleep apart from you. Maine Coon Cats have extravagantly long hair which will constantly be shedding in Maine Coon cats and will float around the room and can get into your throat causing an irritated throat. Cats also do not like being disturbed when they sleep, so to have them in their own bed is likely safer for anyone around them if they are scared awake.
However, we do all know that cats, especially a Maine Coon has a mind of it’s own. They want what they want, when they want it. Cats are also very instinct driven animals. They will sleep anywhere they choose to lay their head down. To them it does not mean that they will never sleep in the perfect cat bed that you buy them, they may, once in a while. They are not adverse to sleeping on the floor, a soft cushion, a cozy and warm bed or even in a sink.
