I have two Maine Coon's as well, and my two eat Honest Kitchen and Evo. I mix the Honest Kitchen's Prowl fresh for every meal, and I mix Innova Evo wet cat food with it and my two are healthier and more beautiful than I think I have ever seen any cat!


NO I will NOT- shut up

royal canin isn't that great. Try felidae.

i HIGHLY recommend taste of the wild if youre looking for dry food. I have 3 cats and foster and feed all my cats this. The thing i like about it most is that it's grain free and for all life stages. I tried Natural Balance but it was more expensive and i think taste of the wild is just as good. I am in no way a cat nutrition expert, i just asked for advice on this forum since i have 3 cats and cannot afford to feed them the most expensive. good luck.

Yes I would like to respond.....We have a beautiful black Maine Coon cat that up until now (13 years) has been kind of finicky about his eating. When we recently bought ROYAL CANIN Dry Cat Food for him, I have NEVER seen a cat dig in so fast to his food! He ate ALL of what we gave him. Every time before when I would feed him he picked and picked and cried...Now...Praise the Lord, we finally found a food he LOVES and will eat that is excellent for his breed. If I were you mam,I would stick to Royal Canin. Our cat's nutritionist at Petsmart told us to imagine ourselves liking or not liking a food; Our bodies respond to really good quality food and so do our animals. I liked that answer. I know that Royal Canin is VERY expensive, but now, there is no other food I will even think of buying for Bubba. That, of course, is just my opinion. Donna Gingrassocat on moonsmile


Forever loved. I- keep her in my- heart.

OMGosh! This not cool to drag up a 5 year old post to pust your agenda. So not cool!

Sam-E and- Louie Bear

All for one and- one for all!

My Louie Bear is part Maine Coon, and I'm a little leery about 'breed specific foods'. I am giving him and his brother Sam-E the same food that kept my old cat Gizmo going for years (despite her horrific health problems) Nature's Variety Instinct canned food. No, it's not cheap, but it's a lot cheaper than taking the boys to the vet. Since this is imported (we are in Canada) I found a good Canadian brand that they will also eat--Go! Natural.
Since these boys have to stay healthy...I'm giving them only a few bits of dry food.
