Taking care of your Maine Coon cat

We are going to look at four main aspects of caring for a Maine Coon cat:

1. How regularly should you take your cat to the vet? If you don't have a particularly sick cat, a couple times a year will be fine.  

2. Maintaining their beauty: A Maine Coon's coat is one of their most attractive features. Brushing it regularly (up to three times a week) is very important to avoid gastric problems.

3. Bathing: A Maine Coon cat absolutely loves water! With the right temperature, between 36° C -38° C, you should have no problem getting them clean.  

4.  Feeding: Very important! Though they love eating, you shouldn't overfeed them because they are very lazy. Provide them a balanced high-quality diet to avoid obesity.
