I love, raise, show and breed healthy, sweet, large and beautiful Maine Coon Cats who have been screened for healthy hearts and hips, as well as those to whom they are bred, to ensure I produce the healthiest cats possible. Our kittens go to approved, indoor only homes and with a no-declaw agreement. No cat in my home is caged, and kittens are all raised underfoot. This is a small cattery, with only 2-3 females and have only 2-3 litters per year to ensure each kitten and cat in my home gets ample attention, the highest quality of veterinarian care and nutrition. I breed these wonderful cats to produce beautiful, healthy and sweet "gentle giants" for my own home-based breeding program and also in hopes of providing loving companions for other cat lovers as well. We show exclusively in TICA, but our cats' ancestors are winners in both TICA and CFA. All breeding cats screened for cardiomyopathy (prior to breeding & then annually), hip dysplasia, and are clear for the one known DNA mutation associated with HCM, SMA & PK Deficiency. All our kittens are microchipped prior to leaving our home.
