The right food for cats

Your Maine Coon cat's diet is crucial to his health and well-being. High-quality food plays a central role in the care and well-being of your cat. It should not contain any colors or additives, and the use of sugar is strictly prohibited. The food should also contain as few preservatives as possible.


Soy proteins should also be avoided in your Maine Coon cat's diet, and levels of magnesium and phosphorus should be low to prevent diet-related urinary grit or bladder stones. High-quality cat food should not contain any slaughter waste.

Since Maine Coon cats are carnivores by nature, a food with a high meat content is ideal for their diet. Your cat's nutritional needs change throughout its life, so it is advisable to use special food for kittens, adult cats and senior cats. Kittens are particularly playful and require high levels of protein to build muscle mass and body substance. Therefore, kitten food has a different composition than food for older cats. It may also make sense to switch to special food tailored to health problems such as urinary tract problems, kidney disease, digestive disorders or obesity.

Maine Coon kittens should be fed at least four meals a day to avoid overloading their digestive tract. Over the first year of life, meals can be reduced to two to three per day as Maine Coon cats grow slowly. If a change in food is planned for any reason, this should be done carefully. Gradually mix an increasing amount of the new food into the usual one so as not to overwhelm the cat with an abrupt change.

We source our quality cat food from trusted suppliers such as “Alles für die Katz,” “Köllezoo,” “Fressnapf,” and “Leonardo” to ensure that your Maine Coon cats receive the best possible nutrition.

Proper care of the Maine Coon cat

The Maine Coon should be brushed once or twice a week outside of the shedding period, especially when it has exercise. You can also examine the cat for unwanted guests such as ticks and fleas or look for scrapes and scratches. Although not every Maine Coon knows the care instructions for their breed, there are also cats of this type that need to be detangled and brushed every day.

Character traits

Maine Coons are very people-oriented and affectionate. Maine Coons are sociable and friendly when dealing with other dogs, dogs and children. They are happy to request game units. If they do this forcefully, you can often hear a kind of cooing or crowing. The breed is also considered a good hunter. In the USA it is still referred to as a “working cat” – a mouse and rat catcher.

History of the Maine Coon cat

The origin of the Maine Coon is shrouded in legend: Some legends claim that the Maine Coon is a hybrid form of cat and raccoon (“racoon”). Others are of the opinion that the cat was bred by the former French Queen Marie Antoinette. In fact, little is known about the cat's origins in the northwestern United States. Their ancestors adapted to the local climatic conditions, which is why the Maine Coon is a robust cat. It has semi-long, dense and water-repellent fur, which also protects it from harsh weather conditions. The breed has been bred systematically since the 1960s, and in 1983 the FIFe also recognized the Maine Coon as an independent breed. Because no matter how the Maine Coon came about, today it is a popular and well-known purebred cat with us.
