THE MAINE COON’S BREED SPECIFICITIES



The largest and heaviest cat breed displays an extraordinary stature with lynx-like tufted ears. Your Maine Coon cat is a real force of nature!

 

The breed's origins

The Maine Coon is probably one of the oldest North American breeds. The ancestors of today’s breed were first reported in the state of Maine in the 1850s. The Maine Coon’s impressive stature is combined with a truly sweet nature.

Most breeders today believe that the breed originated in matings between preexisting shorthaired domestic cats and overseas longhairs (perhaps Angora types introduced by New England seamen, or longhairs brought to America by the Vikings).

MAine Coon - Fun Facts

A true force of nature, just one word: large!

The hardy Maine Coon is the largest and longest pure breed cat, giving an impression of extraordinary power and strength. They can measure almost 1 m long (including the tail) and can be three times as heavy as an ordinary cat! The largest males can weigh up to 10kg! Due to her large size and heavy bone structure particular attention must be given to protecting her joints.

Watching out for a big heart

This breed has a predisposition to cardiac issues. Dietary management is an important part in the maintenance of a healthy heart!

Caring for the beauty of her coat

The Maine Coon cat has a dense semi-long coat with a fi ne soft undercoat.

Strong head with a box shaped muzzle

The Maine Coon has a large boxy jaw leading to a characteristic way of picking her food and chewing.

Maine Coon - Characteristics

Icon Exceptionally long growth
Because of the unique stature of the adult cat, the Maine Coon kitten does not reach maturity until around 15 months of age and sometimes later. It takes time to gradually acquire the massive bones and powerful muscles which set this incredible kitten apart from all other cats. That’s why this very long slow growth period requires a diet specially adapted to her energy needs and is essential for harmonious, balanced growth.
Icon Digestible nutrition
Her digestive system continues developing gradually but remains immature. That’s why selecting high quality protein is key to guarantee highly digestible nutrition.
Icon Challenged natural defences
Growing up means change and new experiences at a time when the kitten’s own immune system is still developing.
Icon An unusually large kitten jaw
From a very young age, the Maine Coon kitten shows the breed’s truly characteristic large boxy jaw which calls for a suitable kibble size and shape.
