MAINE COON KITTENS|MAIN COON|
Q. What’s the difference between show and pet?
A. Simply put, “show quality” cats meet every required breed-specific standard, such as build/body shape, color/pattern, profile, temperament, etc., to be considered for competition. These standards can change depending on judge preference at any given time. However, it’s important to note that any of our EuroCoon cats that joins your family will become a pet when you bring him/her home. This is because our cats are sold without breeding rights, and the kitten will be spayed or neutered by us prior to pick up. But you’ll still get a show-quality kitten with amazing looks!

Q. What kind of temperament do Main Coons have?
A. In a word, WONDERFUL! We wholeheartedly believe that temperament in large part comes down to how the kittens are treated by the breeder. This begins from the moment they are born until they leave our cattery with their loving new families. Without exception, you can expect our kittens to be full of love and affection and will loyally bond to your family. Of course, just like people, Maine Coons have unique personalities. Some are a bit cautious of anyone new, while other kittens instantly become everybody’s best friend. Some may start purring at the possibility of being petted, while others never purr… no matter how much they love the attention. We even have cats that loudly (and proudly) announce to the world their intention to use the litter box, while others do their business with zero fanfare.

Q. How much will your Maine Coons ultimately weigh?
A. Visualize a male main Coon cat standing on his or her hind legs, literally placing his nose up and over the kitchen countertops to smell the food we’re preparing! That’s right – these cats are that long! We have had male kittens that tip the scale at over 20 pounds at one-year-old, and females at over 17 pounds. Keep in mind that a kitten’s weight doesn’t necessarily predict the final size and weight of an adult Coon cat. As you might imagine, many factors play a role, including diet, portion control, environment, etc.
Typically, a maine Coon Cat is not fully-grown until about three-years-old, sometimes up to five or seven. In our opinion, a kitten’s weight is not a strong indicator for which will grow to be bigger than another. It’s all a guessing game. It’s worth noting that a “fixed” cat is significantly larger than one that hasn’t been spayed or neutered.
Q. How can I tell which kitten will grow up to be the largest?
A. See above – you can’t! We can make our best guess, but you just never know. Just like people, kittens are born with a certain growth potential. When raised in an ideal environment, they are certainly more likely to reach that potential.
Q. How about the MaineCoon disposition?
A. The disposition of a Maine Coon Cat (European or American) is heavily dependent upon the breeder. Since our kittens receive nonstop love and attention, they learn to crave it and are eager to return the affection. This means our kittens will love to be near you at all times, whether that’s laying on your lap while you watch TV, snuggling you in bed, or covering your laptop when you’re trying to work. They’ll even watch for you out the window and race to greet you at the door when you get home. No two cats are the same, but for the most part ours are big, attention-seeking balls of love!
Q. How do Maine Coons get along with young children?
A. Well, our eight-year-old son is constantly around them, so our babies have become experts on the subject of little boys. As long as you teach your child to treat all animals with love and respect, everything should be fine. We take this subject very seriously and are always happy to discuss it in detail with anybody interested in one of our kittens.

Q. Okay, how about the cost of a Maine Coon kitten?
A. Our pricing is totally market dependent. For example, since males can be significantly larger than females they sell for proportionally more. Because of the high breeding quality and overall care of our queens and kings, and the tremendous amount of time, love and attention invested in our kittens, our European Maine Coon kittens do sell at the top of the market spectrum. However, prices vary from kitten to kitten. Please contact us if you are interested in a specific kitten.
Q. What’s included?
A. Of course, when you purchase from our cattery, you can be 100% certain that you’re getting an exquisite example of the breed. All of our Maine Coon kittens will
