What is the Best Food for a Maine Coon.
With over 30 years of breeding purebred cats, we know nutrition is one of the most important factors to not only the start of life for a Maine Coon, but also throughout their lives. We have tried many different foods and many different litters, and we require certain foods for the life of our Maine Coons, because we know what a huge difference it can make for their health.
We have found the best dry food for kittens and pregnant or nursing mom's is "Royal Canin Mother & Baby Cat Dry Food. This fantastic premium food with Breed specific diets has optimal amino acids, supports the digestive system with antioxidants, essential omega fatty acids, L-lysine to support the immune system, it is a healthy quality premium food at a reasonable price. In addition, kittens get 1 to 2 cans each of Fancy Feast Kitten wet food per day. Around 10 weeks of age, we mix the dry food equal parts with Instinct by Nature's Variety Original Grain-Free Recipe with Real Chicken Dry Cat Food" for all life stages. This is what your kitten will come home on.
At around 16-20 weeks of age, slowly mix in more every 2 days of the "Instinct by Nature's Variety Original Grain-Free Dry Cat Food" for all life stages, until it is 100% Instinct Dry cat food.
