Although breeding is our passion but not our main profession. However, as breeders we take our responsibility very serious. Selecting a single cat for breeding could make a major impact on the breed and affect health through our lines. For this reason we test all our cats, to get more information about the well being of our kittens. With all this exams it still never gives 100% guarantee that the cat is healthy and will give healthy kittens. But we do everything that is possible to exclude health issues from the beginning.
Our cats are part of our family. They live in our home, spend all the time with us, even sleep in our bed! Thanks to this approach they are socializing from their early age and are being easily trained. As a result, our cats are cuddly, cheerful, beautiful and fascinating bunch that makes us and their future pawrents immensely happy. Our main goal is to carry out responsible breeding of healthy kittens with a wonderful character and type. We do our best to provide great conditions and treatment for our cats. They are much more than just examples fulfilling the Maine Coon standards and excellent breeding material. We care about them with love, and we select and match the lines with passion of the professional breeders.
Our experience has taught us to have limited number of litters per year to be able to dedicate all the necessary time that kittens need. We are determined in finding the best possible forever homes for our offsprings, and therefore sometimes we need to allow a bit longer period for the conversations and meetings with the future owners. Health is priority in our home. All our cats are regularly tested and proved negative on the most common illnesses:
- Hypertrofische Cardiomyopathie (HCM) - Heart echo on 1-, 3-, 5- and 8- years of age
- Hypertrofische Cardiomyopathie (HCM) - DNA test.
- Hip Dysplasia (HD) - Photo of the hips at the age of 1-year (minimum).
- PK Deficiency - DNA test.
- Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) - DNA test
- Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) - Kidney echo from the age of 1 year
We are focused to eliminate disease and dangerous mutations within the breed without losing much of valuable genes in the population. When participating we test all of our potential breeding cats before a mating.
Do not forget: You are not simply purchasing us a cat, you are acquiring a piece of our hearts carried with tons of effort, love and well care since the day number one! ♡
