Available Maine Coon Kittens
and
Retired Adult Maine Coon Cats

Updated on Saturday, July 07, 2018

AVAILABLE ADULTS

From time to time we may have retired breeding females or males that are looking for wonderful lifelong homes.  It is hard for us to part with these treasures, but we feel a life as someone's treasured pet is what they deserve once they retire.  Please inquire about the availability of retired breeding/show cats.

ABOUT OUR KITTENS

    Our breeding cats are tested for the following and are all negative:

  • PK Deficiency (Pryuvate Kinase Deficiency)

  • PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease)

  • HCM DNA (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy)

  • SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy)

  • FIV/FeLV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus/Feline Leukemia Virus)

  • HCM Echo (Annual sonogram scan of the heart)

  • Hip X-rays to detect hip displasia 

We have our own dedicated cardiologist at Ohio State University. This is important as all heart scans can be reviewed for any changes. All annual scan results can be viewed on my males/females pages. All these preventative tests we do is not to say our cats can't develop disease; we take every measure to ensure we have the healthiest cats possible.

NOTE: Please beware of breeders that DNA test "only". This DNA test is only one identified HCM gene and echocardiogram is the only way to detect hear disease.

Our kittens are ready to leave at twelve weeks of age. Each kittens comes with:

  • Two vaccinations (8 and 12 weeks) FVRCP

  • 30 day trial insurance plan

  • 1 year genetic health guarantee

  • Worming

  • Two vet wellness checks

NOTE: We do not ship pet kittens, but have a reliable airport to airport in cabin service available.
 

  ODE TO A BREEDER 
 
I love my little kitty, she makes my house a home.
She always is my best friend, I never feel alone.
She makes me smile, she makes me laugh,
She fills my heart with love ...
Did some breeder breed her, or did she fall down from above?
 
I've never been a breeder, seen life through their eyes,
I hold my little kitty and just sit and criticize.
I've never known their anguish, I've never felt their pain,
The caring of their charges, through snow or wind and rain.
 
I've never sat the whole night through, waiting for babies to be born,
The stress and trepidation when they're still not there by dawn.
I've never felt the heartache, of a little life in my hands,
This darling little baby, who weighs but 60 grams.
 
Should you do that instead of this ....or this instead of that,
Alone you fight, and hope one day, he'll grow to be a cat,
and bring joy to another being, and make a house a home,
You know it's all just up to you, you'll fight this fight alone.
 
Formula, bottles, heating pads, you've got to get this right,
Two hourly feeds for this tiny guy, throughout the day and night.
In your heart you know, you're almost sure to lose the fight,
to save this little baby, but God willing ... you just MIGHT.
 
Day one he's in there fighting, you say a silent prayer,
Day two & three, he's doing well, with lots of love and care.
Day four & five ... he's still alive, your hopes soar to the heavens,
Day six he slips away again, dies in your hands day seven.
 
You take this little angel, and bury him alone,
With aching heart and burning tears, and an exhausted groan,
You ask yourself "Why do this? ... why suffer all this pain?"
But see the joy your kittens bring... it really self explains.
 
So, when you think of breeders and label them with "greed",
Think about what they endure to fill another's need.
When you buy a kitten and with your precious dollars part,
You only pay with money ... we pay with our heart.
