-- Pet care is a multi-billion dollar industry. There are pet products available at every turn. Devoted owners of big cats, such as the Maine Coon Cat, now have a place to turn where the sea of cat care products has been narrowed down.
Maine Coon Cats can have special needs when it comes to cat trees, cat litter boxes, and more. These large house cats can easily tip feeble cat furniture or spill a too-small cat litter box. Worse yet, they may refuse to use a cat litter box that is too small for them.
The range of cat care products available to them can easily perplex cat owners. In addition, many pet owners don’t have the time to sift through hundreds of product reviews. “I was surprised when I first shopped for a large litter box,” comments Carrie Profenno, President of Maine-Coon-Cat-
Nation.com. “I spent hours eliminating units that are too small, shallow, and light weight for my 18 pound cat.” Many of these special, large litter boxes are only available online.

As Maine Coon Cats reach middle age, they can become overweight. This can expose them to health concerns, such as feline hip dysplasia. To combat obesity, it’s important for indoor cats to exercise. One way is to play with them.
Maine Coons, especially males, tend to remain clown-like and playful throughout their lives. A good supply of cat toys and catnip products will keep these cats active and healthy. High quality, well-reviewed cat toys for big cats are can be seen at: http://www.maine-coon-cat-nation.com/big-cat-toys.html
Some of the other cat care departments at The Cat Store include: Cat Scratching Posts, Cat Lover Gifts, Cat Trees, and Outdoor Cat Enclosures. Soon to be open are Top Pick Flea Products, Natural Products, Grooming Supplies, Catnip, and New Kitten Supplies.
