Our breed focus this month is the Maine coon cat! Please post pictures of your gentle giants! Maine coons have a muscular build, thick fur around their neck, tufted ears and a big, fluffy tail. Maine coons come in almost every color. Maine coons are friendly, intelligent, gentle and playful. They get along well with children, dogs and other cats and tend to be very outspoken! The Maine coon is one of the oldest domestic cat breeds originating in the United States. Maine coons probably started as sailor’s cats. It’s likely that their ancestors arrived in America centuries ago on ships from Europe and mixed with the native feral cats to produce the first Maine coons. Love your Maine coon? We do too! However, we know that Maine coon cats are more likely to develop feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy than cats overall. A test is available that identifies one of the genes associated with the disease. http://www.ncstatevets.org/mainecoonhcm/. If you suspect this in your cat, ask your veterinarian for a referral to Michelle Purnell, DVM; Diplomate ACVIM (SAIM) for a diagnosis. Love your Maine coon? We do too! However, we know that hip dysplasia is common in the cat breed, but not in cats overall. Hip dysplasia can be one cause of arthritis in cats. How have you helped your cats with arthritis? Ask your veterinarian for a referral to our surgeons, Jennifer Hoch, DVM; Dipolomate ACVS and Linda Lew, DVM, MSc; Diplomate ACVS. Love your Maine coon? We do too! However, we know that spinal muscular atrophy is a neurological disease more common in Maine coons than other cats. Muscular weakness begins as early as 3 months of age. Though the disease causes loss of function, it’s not painful. http://www.mcbfa.org/healthfiles.html Ask your veterinarian for a referral to our Neurology Service in Winston-Salem. In 2010, a Maine Coon named Stewie broke the world record for longest cat at 48.5 inches, and in 2011, Stewie officially broke the world record for longest cat tail at 16.34 inches! www.stewiecat.com
maine coon cat hypertrophic cardiomyopathy usually does not show up until they are an adult although the genetic mutation is present at birth.
