Maine Coons are one of the largest cat species in the world, known for their friendly, playful but also calm nature and their generous appearance. These cats are very attached to their owners, making them great company. Maine Coons are also a big fan of water. A running tap is reason enough for a Maine Coon for a small party. We are happy to tell you all about this great cat breed, which was the reason for starting our Maine Coon Cattery.
Origin of the Maine Coon
There are many rumors about the origin of the Maine Coon. For example, one rumor tells that the Maine Coon comes from America, from the state of Maine. Another rumor says that the Maine Coon is a cross between a wild cat and a raccoon. There are many more stories about the origin of the Maine Coon. The real origin of this cat breed is therefore not completely established.
One of the things the Maine Coons are known for is their imposing appearance. Most Maine Coons have a lush lion's mane and a large bushy tail. Also, some Maine Coons have a thick collar around their head and chest. Maine Coons are mainly recognized by the fluffy tufts on the tips of their ears (also called lynx tips) and the tufts of hair on the legs. Maine Coons come in different colors, from brown tabby to cream. The size and type of coat can also differ per Maine Coon.
The Maine Coon is one of the largest cat breeds in the world for a reason. If they try hard, they can reach the counter with their paws. A Maine Coon's weight also matches their size. The weight of these benign giants can reach from 6 to 10 kilograms.
The impressive coat is not only beautiful, it also requires care. We recommend that you get the Maine Coon used to a comb from the moment of being a kitten, so that it goes better with the combing. Combing every day is not necessary, but getting a comb through the coat every week is not an unnecessary luxury. This prevents the fur from becoming full of tangles.
How Much Does a Maine Coon Eat?
There are several options when it comes to nutrition. For example, the dry kibble from the Royal Canin brand is recommended to keep the teeth and gums of the Maine Coon in good condition. Special chunks that provide a beautiful coat or strong bones are also not an unnecessary luxury. It is especially important not to switch too much between cat foods, as Maine Coons generally have sensitive guts.
