From the breeder:

We are a family that is in love with Maine Coon Cats. We do everything to provide joy of life and health to our pets. Our pets move freely throughout our home, have a healthy diet and best care. Our medical education helps us in working with kittens and adult cats. All parents of our kittens have genetic tests. Kittens will have a certificate with their pedigree. The most successful event has been the appearance, in our cattery, of Nuage, male of our JoieDeVivre. A cat with a pronounced lion’s face. There were already litters of kittens from him and all his children inherited from him their father’s lion’s face. So, now we are unique, we produce small lion cubs. A very big bonus that kittens get by inheriting a wide nose at birth is wide tear ducts. And that means healthier eyes.

FAQs when considering Maine Coon Cats

What should I ask to choose the right Maine Coon Cat breeder?

While there are many people in Connecticut who claim to be ethical Maine Coon Cat breeders, not all hold a standard that you can feel great about. Asking some relevant questions about their philosophy will ensure you avoid Maine Coon Cat breeders that do this only for financial gain, not having the interests of the cats or you in mind. Make sure you ask about:

  • Health history of the parents and vaccinations. They should have their first vaccinations by the time they're adopted.
  • Whether they've bred their Maine Coon Cats with other breeds (they should disclose this and it would make it not a purebred lien.
  • Have the socialized the kitten among other kittens?
  • Do they belong to a Connecticut Maine Coon Cat breed club? You can ask for references from the club.

Why does it matter if I buy from a registered Maine Coon Cat breeder?

I have had two interests since I was very young… the Internet and cats. I grew up with two lovely cats in my family, Midnight and Chloe. But when I started looking for a cat as an adult, I realized how few reliable resources there are for finding ethical breeders. So I combined my Internet skills and cat knowledge to create Cat Kingpin, the #1 resource for cat breeders online. Have a question or suggestion for my list? You can reach me here.
