Table of Contents

If youג€™ve adopted a Maine Coon and want to keep your new friend happy, healthy and well-fed, then read on! The Maine Coon is one of the most popular cat breeds in the United States today. Because they are known for theirintelligence, loyalty, and independent nature, they are also among the most commonly adopted housecats as well. But did you know that this particular breed requires a little extra TLC to maintain their good health? This article will show you everything you need to know about caring for a Maine Coon cat.

How many times a day should you feed a Maine Coon cat?

When it comes to feeding a Maine Coon cat, the number of times you feed your pet is really up to you. Their metabolism is high and their dietary needs are different than other cats. Depending on their age and size, Maine Coons need about two to three cups of food per day. They will eat more if they’re given it at mealtimes or if it’s left out for them for extended periods of time. But remember, this is just an estimate! If your cat doesn’t seem hungry, check with your vet before making any changes to the amount of food you give him.

Do Maine Coon cats drink a lot of water?

Yes, Maine Coons are known to be a very thirsty breed. They have a reputation for drinking and drinking often, but this is not something to worry about. Because theyג€™re intelligent cats that can drink from a bowl, you neednג€™t worry about your Maine Coon cat not getting enough water. That said, it can be difficult for them to avoid dehydration if you donג€™t provide them with access to clean, fresh water at all times.

What kind of food is best for Maine Coon cats?

The Maine Coon is a large cat with a very special diet, so this is an important question to ask. We all know that cats are carnivores, but that doesnג€™t mean the Maine Coon cat canג€™t eat other types of food (such as vegetables and fruits)! What it does mean is that their diet should be made up from 80% meat in order for them to maintain healthy levels of nutrients like taurine, selenium, and vitamin B12.
Because these cats have such a high metabolism, they will require more meat than most other breeds. For example, according to the American Association of Feline Practitioners, the Maine Coon has a caloric requirement of about 7-10% higher than the average cat.
Also, because they are a large breed, they will need more water as well. Make sure you provide your kitty with fresh water at all times through its drinking dish or even by using timed automatic waterers. By providing your loved one with plenty of water this way, you can help to keep them hydrated and stay on top of any potential health issues.

How much water should a Maine Coon drink?

The Maine Coon is one of the most popular cat breeds, and they have a reputation for being particular about their food and water. To keep your new friend happy, healthy, and well-hydrated, you will want to make sure that they are getting enough fluids in their diet. They should be drinking between two to three liters of water a day. You can also use an automatic pet fountain to help keep your cat hydrated, as these tend to offer more natural flowing water than other options. If your cat is drinking plenty of liquids and youג€™re still worried about their hydration level, then ask your veterinarian whether or not it might be time for them to get some subcutaneous fluids administered by an injection.
