What is a Maine coon?

The Maine Coon Cat has a long, rectangular body with a deep chest to go between the thick weeds and brush of the New England countryside.

The breed is known for its friendly, outgoing personality and its impressive size, with males averaging 15 to 20 pounds and females averaging 10 to 15 pounds; they are heavy-boned cats. Their beautiful large eyes are wide set, slightly slanting upward towards their large, well-tufted ears. Lynx-tips (hair on tip of ear) do not occur on every Maine Coon or can vary from 1/4" to spectacular 1" legnths.


In short Maine coons are real gentle Giants!!

Answer

Kittens get Hills Science Plan Kitten <1 for access all day and are fed canned food Hills Kitten 1st Nutrition Mousse once a day. They also have access to fresh clean water all day. Milk causes diarrhea.

IMPERATIVE: Do not change kitten/cats food for 6 months, and then it must be done very slowly. Due to stress, cats need to acclimate before making a drastic change, if you do it drastically they will get diarrhea.

After 6 months the kitten/cat's diet can be changed to a high quality food of your choice. Cats thrive best when consistently fed high quality food and not doing so can lead to health issues. A cat needs 3–4 weeks to adjust to a new food--frequent changes can lead also to extreme bowel issues. If you have questions regarding food choices, please don't hesistate to contact us.

Answer

We recommend Revolution (from Vet) for flea treatment. This is a spot on treatment that is applied once a month. Fleas can be active all year round and not just in the summer months. Regional fleas can also be different and difficult to treat when out of control. Consult your vet to see what they recommend. I recommend treating for fleas 12 months a year.

Frontline can also be used, but we recommend Revolution, as it also treats for heartworms, roundworms, hookworms and ear mites, although not a strong wormer.

Answer

All kittens are born with worms. We worm kittens at 4, 8, and 12 weeks of age and then every 1-3 months throughout their life. Cats can get worms from bugs or other animals they ingest the same as fleas.

Kittens

  • Every 2 weeks until 3 months of age, starting at 4 weeks old.
  • Once a month from 3 to 6 months of age.
  • After 6 months, follow adult recommendations.

Adult Cats

  • Treat regularly, considering potential exposure to parasites (example: four times a year)
  • A continued surveillance of parasite prevalence in your area is recommended.
Answer

Micro chipping - it’s safe and non invasive, and probably the only way to maybe get back a lost animal. It can be done without anesthesia but vets prefer to do it when altering an animal.

Short trips - in the car followed with a treat on return home. This gets cat used to car rides and carrier, making vet trips less stressful and filled with panic.
