Our cats are fully integrated family members. The welfare and happiness of our cats is our most important goal. For us breeding is a passion and a hobby. Therefore, we do not overcrowd and overbreed our cats and give mothers much more time between litters than commercial breeders would do as we do want to enjoy our cats and see them happy and content. Hence, we don’t always have kittens available. Our kittens are born in our bedroom and raised lovingly in our house. We spend a lot of time with our cats and our kittens are exceptionally well-socialised.

If you are interested in a kitten, please do contact us with plenty of information about yourself and why you think you can provide the perfect home to one of our babies. We do not rehome to households that let their cats roam free and we are ideally looking for homes where our kitten will have some feline companionship.

When our kittens leave us, they will come with a contract, will be fully vaccinated, microchipped, registered, litter trained, neutered / spayed and de-wormed. We do not rehome unneutered kittens!

All of our cats are HCM echo scanned, hip scored and tested genetically for various breed related diseases. You will get a copy of the scan and test results with your kitten pack.

If you are unsure what to look out for when buying a pedigree kitten, a kitten buying guide can be found here.

Finally a word of caution:

When buying a pedigree kitten make sure to check what the breeder does to minimise health issues. How many litters does the breeder have per year? Is he/she overbreeding their queens like puppy farms (ideally a queen should have only one litter per year)? Second to health, see how the cats live: do they grow up in a house with human interaction or outside in a shed? This can highly influence a cat’s future behaviour towards you and other two and four-legged family members. And never buy a pedigree cat without papers! Only a cat and kitten that is registered with one of the larger cat associations such as GCCF, TICA, Fife etc. is a true pedigree cat. Don’t be fooled by the argument of some backyard breeders to save a few Euros when buying an unregistered pedigree cat. It costs a mere 10-15 Euros to get a kitten registered! Most likely, such breeders bred from cats that were bought as pets with no breeding rights or even worse, the parents aren’t pedigree Maine Coons at all!

Breeding Maine Coons requires a tremendous amount of knowledge and patience. Because we first started to show Maine Coons many years before we started breeding, we are now in the lucky position to be able to work and collaborate with very experienced breeders Nationally and Internationally. Without the friendship and trust of these fellow breeders, successfully breeding healthy Maine Coons that are true to type would be next to impossible.
