Obtaining Our Kittens

All litters receive the proper vaccines and are examined by our veterinarian prior to going to their new homes. We guarantee our kittens are FeLV and FIV negative, and are in sound health when they leave our home. We also guarantee that all of our breeding adults are genetically clear for the primary gene involved in early onset heart disease in cats.

Currently we sell all of our Maine Coons as pets. In the future we may expand to show and breeding options.
