About Maine Coon cats
The Maine Coon cat breed is an affectionate and friendly feline. Having mannerisms as large as their body, it’s no wonder they make a popular companion. A Maine Coon’s thick, long coat is waterproof, which explains their fascination with playing and even bathing in water. You might not find this cat breed to be adventurous climbers as they prefer to keep their feet on the ground, but they love activities and will want to stay near you to be involved in any action you may be taking part in.

Benefits of fresh cat food for Maine Coons
We don’t rave about fresh cat food because we sell it. We truly believe it has the best benefits for your Maine Coon. After an initial adjustment period, Maine Coons could notice the following benefits when provided daily with fresh cat food, including:
Effective weight management
Shiny, healthier coats
Maine Coons are obligate carnivores. This means they receive their nutrients from meat. Yet many well-known cat foods typically use poor quality meat, which is cooked at high temperatures to last on a shelf for months, even years. This has to change. KatKin provides fresh cat food that uses 100% fresh-cooked premium meat, which are formulated by our in-house vets and animal nutritionists to be as healthy as possible for your cat. Don’t just take our word for it. Fearlessly switch and try fresh cat food recipes for your Maine Coon.

Maine Coon cat FAQs

No, Maine Coon cats are not hypoallergenic. There is not a breed which is considered 100% hypoallergenic. Although they are a very loving and loyal companion, their fur can be left behind wherever they lay. Allergies can also be formed from a Maine Coon’s skin, in the form of dander, which can trigger an allergic reaction.
Main Coon cats are not typically known for being a lap cat. While their characteristics include loyalty and affection, they predominantly like to be independent. More of a lie next to you, rather than lie on you.
Maine Coon cats are said to have originated from the United States. Early reports suggest this breed did not land in the United Kingdom until the 1980s. And cat parents have been in love with them ever since. Possibly the closest ancestor to a Maine Coon is a Norwegian Forest cat. Once bred with local shorthair cats, the offspring were born with brush-like tails resembling a raccoon. Hence the unique name Maine Coon.
Ideally, your Maine Coon's total daily feeding amount should be split between 3 - 4 meals. Keeping that in mind, we perfectly portion your Main Coon kitten’s food into pouches. One pouch is a daily serving, filled with all the nutrients your kitten needs.
