Maine Coons... Are they really cats?
Having a cat that talks to you is just one advantage to owning this breed. We laugh because our cats all come when you call them by name. (Well most of the time). They each know their name. They also know the sound of the squeak of the door opening for meal time. They act more like dogs than cats.
We raise all our kittens under foot and socialized with the family. They are the most loyal loving friend and family member. We often refer to them as the dog lovers cat because they act so much like dogs. Our cats love to fetch things for us to throw and play with them. They are indeed gentle giants, but even though some grow to be so big (we have some big guys) they are so gentle with us that you never sense any kind of aggression from them. They are actually quite the opposite.
One of our favorite things is watching the kittens grow. Opening their eyes after about the fifth day. Starting to "wobbledy walk" on about the 14th day. Running jumping and playing by the end of the 4th week, until it is hard to see them go after the 10th- 12th week.
We are particular in our breeding process and also in our selling. We want loving families that will make a lifetime home for their kitten. We will ask you to sign a contract. We have taken great care in making sure you receive a healthy and wonderful pet, and want to be assured you will continue that care.
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) and Hip Dysplasia are common problems in many domestic breeds. However genetic traits do not always show up until the cats are past their optimal breeding age. For that reason we are working to breed out these genetic traits through family Gene pool and testing. Our Maine Coon Cats and Maine Coon Kittens come from championship lines and all our queens have been tested for HCM
As you can see we are just getting the site up and going. We will have great articles on each of the topics listed above and many many more. We are hunting for the best discount sources for you and also the best suppliers and resources for all our cat and kitten needs. We will be getting information on all your cat questions and compiling them here in one place. If you see something you would like included here please email and let us know.
