Maine Coon Cat in Autumn Leaves

The Maine Coon cat loves playing in a field of fall leaves. When he gets outside, he finds a pile of fallen Autumn leaves, which he enjoys rolling in. The photo of Tigger in autumn leaves is a wonderful reminder of the beauty of the Fall season, and shows the true beauty of the breed. In addition to the beautiful colors of Fall, the beautiful coat pattern of this breed can also be a wonderful sight to see.

Common health problems

While these cats are relatively low-maintenance, they can suffer from certain conditions. If not treated properly, they can develop polycystic kidney disease (PKD). If this condition is found, a veterinarian will perform an ultrasound to determine whether it is present. Maine Coons are one of the largest breeds of domestic cats and can grow to 40 inches in length. They have a low chance of contracting this condition, but the symptoms are very real.

Rare coat pattern

The Maine Coon cat has a unique coat pattern. This striped pattern is most prevalent in the Red Smoke color. The hair is red at the tip and lighter at the base, giving the cat a smokey appearance. Red pigmentation is associated with the sex of the cat, so a red Smoke can only have red color if its parent is also the same sex.

Seasonal shedding

As with most animals, the Maine Coon sheds in seasons. Its double coat acts as a thermal regulator and is responsible for the cat’s shedding. In hotter climates, Maine Coons shed more than other double-coated breeds, but this is not the case in a house with a lot of insulation. In these climates, the short undercoat is not needed to regulate temperatures, so the cats will discard it. The outer coat is still intact.

Caring for a Maine Coon cat is an emotional rollercoaster, and many owners are unaware of the potential allergens your pet may be allergic to. You can help your pet avoid exposure to allergens by preventing them at home and visiting your veterinarian. These tips will help you minimize your Maine Coon cat’s allergy to the various types of foliage and dust. Read on to learn more.

Dental disease

You may have noticed your Maine Coon cat drooling in autumn leaves, drooling while eating, and turning his head while grooming his teeth. These are all signs that your Maine Coon cat is suffering from dental disease. Visiting a veterinarian is the best way to detect any problems early. A veterinarian can examine your Maine Coon’s teeth and make necessary recommendations.

Feline lower urinary tract disease

If your cat has been hiding under the leaves of a mature maple tree in the fall, he might be suffering from a painful, life-threatening condition called feline lower urinary tract disease. Urine stones are the result of an obstruction in the urethra. This condition can be life-threatening, as the stones can obstruct the urethra and damage the kidneys. The stones can be passed through flushing with sterile fluids. A veterinarian may recommend surgery to remove the stones, which can result in bleeding, narrowing at the surgical site, and urinary incontinence.

Skin disease

If you’ve noticed your Maine Coon scratching more than usual in autumn, you may need to see a veterinarian for a possible autoimmune skin disease. These conditions can be serious, requiring extensive diagnostic testing and treatments. While they are rarely curable, many cases of this disease can be treated at home. Symptoms of this disease include excessive scratching, change in behavior, and even a fever. Although there’s no cure for atopic dermatitis, your veterinarian can recommend a variety of treatments that can help control the symptoms and keep your cat comfortable and happy.
