Thank you for visiting our page! We are a family of Maine Coon lovers and are proud of our gentle giants. We imported our first Maine Coons in April of 2018. These sweet-tempered colossal cats are irresistible with their fluffy manes and tails and their fun, loving, playful personalities.
We imported each of our original Kings and Queens from different catteries in Russia, Hungary, and Ukraine. We are located in Oregon for local pick up or can ship to an airport near you. We have shipped our cats and kittens all over the United States.
Our cats thrive in our lively house full of children. Our kittens are frisky, fun and friendly. We do our very best to make sure each and every kitten get as socialized as possible so the adjustment to your home is easy for both you and your new kitten!
We are proud to have healthy cats and kittens. We do our genetic testing through Optimal Selections via TICA. Feel free to look over their test results on each of their pages!
We will also gladly do a genetic test on your kitten for $100!
Your kitten will have a 2 year health guarantee outlined in my contract that will be sent to you once you choose your kitten.
Our loveable Coons are waiting to be added to your family! They grow up around all of our children, so they get lots of love and playtime! They're more than pets, they're family! Please join our wait list if you're looking for a "mini lion" to call your own!
Kittens are sold as PET-ONLY. Breeding rights are ONLY offered to established breeders that have built a friendship with me.
All of my kittens are registered through TICA. Registration paperwork will be emailed once proof of spay/neuter is provided.
I have a closed cattery and I do NOT offer any type of stud service, so please do not ask.
I am in Oregon, near the Salem/Portland area.
Please visit the page "Pricing & Colors"
I offer all my kittens to my waitlist first, in date order. If by chance I have made it through my waitlist and a kitten(s) did not get reserved, I will list them on my "Available Kittens" page as available. It's rare, but it does happen from time to time.
Wait times depend on what you're looking for. Those open to any color/sex will have a shorter wait time than those looking for a specific color/sex. Males, especially black smoke males, will have a longer wait than females. Other factors that play into wait times are: if mating is successful, how many kittens are born in each litter, what their color/sex are, and how many people on my waitlist pass on each given litter. Depending on all the above factors, your wait time could be a few weeks to a year or two.
For more information, please visit the page "Join My Waitlist"
Yes! You are welcome to make payments towards your future kitten while waiting on the waitlist. But please be aware, all payments made are NONREFUNDABLE unless I have chosen not to give you a kitten. No refunds will be given if you change your mind or decide you need your money back for any reason. All payments received will go towards your future kitten.
I have a closed cattery. For the safety of my cats and children, I do not have visitors over. You can however pick up your kitten in person. Please visit the page "Delivery" for more information.
Once a kitten is reserved, they are moved from the "Available Kittens" page to the "Reserved Kittens" page. I do updated photos about every 2 weeks and will post them on there.
It's pretty hard to tell personalities when they're young. They're all playful and cute Lil fluffballs that let us pack them around and cuddle them. Their personalities really start to show around 10-12 weeks, and even after that they can change. I've had some kittens be very independent and not very cuddly, then go to their new homes and in their new environment become clingy and cuddly! And vice versa, cuddly here and more independent in their new homes. So it really depends, but we do our best to give them all the love and attention we can so they're fully prepared for their new lives, no matter how similar or different it will be ❤
Please visit the page "Your New Kitten" to see recommendations and what they're used to.
No, your kitten will have a Spay/Neuter contract. It is your responsibility to S/N your kitten by the time they are nine months old. Proof must be provided to me of S/N. The best time to S/N is around 6 months old. This allows your kitten time to grow with its full hormones, while still getting done before sexual maturity occurs.
All litters are registered through TICA. Once proof of S/N is provided, I will email you their TICA Registration paperwork where you can register them under your ownership and order their pedigree, if you choose to.
*Please keep in mind, you will only get papers once sufficient proof of spay/neuter is provided. Acceptable proof is a spay/neuter certificate that lists the kittens name, color, breed, DOB, and microchip number.
Kittens are able to leave when they are 12 weeks old. You can get your kitten anytime between 12-14 weeks old. Please visit the page "Delivery" to see the different options on how to get your kitten home.
***Please keep in mind that you can get your kitten between 12-14 weeks old. If you need me to keep them after they are 14 weeks old there will be a $20/day boarding fee assigned.
Size is a common question, and something no one can guarantee. Even kittens in the same litter can grow to be different sizes. Genetics can play a part, but kittens can take after several generations back.
That said, Males tend to grow larger than females. The average male is 15-25 lbs and the average female is 10-20 lbs. There are some that weigh more or less than average also. For me, size isn't based on weight. Any cat can be fat. Also, breeding cats weigh less than fixed pets. Bone structure, height, and length are better size gauges than weight. While size is a desired trait of the Maine Coon, it's not what most breeders focus on when breeding. Maine Coons in general are large, as they are the largest breed of domestic cats. Please don't ask for an XL cat/kitten, as there is no such thing, and the breeders that advertise XL cats are just trying to get your attention.
I get asked this question quite a bit, enough that I thought it was important to put on my FAQ. It's true, there are MANY scammers out there. Usually if it sounds too good to be true, it is. If kittens are listed as "for sale" or have a "buy now" button... don't walk, RUN. Likely you are looking at a stolen picture of a kitten and the scammer has no possession of any kittens.
I would encourage you to do your own research. It's not hard to find many reviews for me and my cattery. The most reviews can be found on my FaceBook, as lots of people tag me in photos of kittens/cats they've gotten from me. You can find me by searching my name on the FaceBook search bar, Traci Heppner, I have a cat as my profile pic. You'll also want to browse my website, as I have pages upon pages of information available.
Our babies are offered to my waitlist first, so please join my list to get your future fur-baby!
