And then he grew. And grew. And grew. By 6 months old he was already larger than the average cat, and still growing. The vet confirmed he is probably at least part Maine Coon, and said he is likely to keep growing to at least 2 years of age. So far that is proving to be true.

He is a very muscular cat, with very shiny fur - we think this was helped along by his food. We settled on Hill's Ideal Balance for him, as the ingredients list was on par with some of the more expensive brands like Wellness, but was a brand we knew we could find fairly easily. Plus they had an adult food that matched the flavor of their kitten food, which made for an easier transition. He also gets a bit of wet food in the evening, mixed with lysine powder to help control the symptoms of his feline herpes - a chronic respiratory infection that is common in cats who came from a shelter environment. He had some issues as a kitten with some nasty flareups, and the vet determined he has a sensitive immune system due to his lymph nodes swelling several times, but as he has gotten older he has stayed fairly healthy so long as we keep up with the lysine.
