Maine Coons are known as the gentle giants of cats. Maine Coons are docile, loving, calm with a playful temperament good for all home types. Maine Coons are one of the most feral or wild looking cat breeds with large size. They have low energy needs as adults, kittens will have medium energy needs.
Maine Coons are the best choice for a exotic pet cat but completely domesticated with an easy going temperament that is extremely well rounded. Most “exotic pet cats” available are extremely high energy which can lead to bad behavior if not proper maintained daily for their entire lives. This is why Maine Coons are such a fantastic choice. Experience the call of the wild in your own living room, without destroying your living room. We call them the “Loving Lynx”.
Maine Coons can weigh up to 30 pounds not because they are overweight, average weight of 20+ pounds, but because their body mass is spread evenly throughout their long slender body. Their massive tails can measure up to 16 inches in length. Sometimes called “sail” cats due to their ridiculous fluffy long tails “sailing” behind them. Some remark they are more tail than cat. They XXL in size hence our name choice.
The Maine Coon breed holds the Guinness World Record for longest domestic cat. The longest domestic cat living measures 120 cm (3 ft 11.2 in) and was achieved by Barivel (Italy), as verified on 22 May 2018 by Guinness Book Of World Records. Their lifespan ranges from 12 to 15 years. Some report a lifespan of 15 plus.
Maine Coons are one of the oldest natural breeds in North America, specifically native to the state of Maine, where it is the official state cat. Tall tales of a mating between a cat and a raccoon are false, a myth that is genetically impossible. The breed did developed into a strong and hardy cat designed to cope with harsh New England winters after being brought over by the vikings. A Maine Coon named Cosey won the best cat title at the Madison Square Garden Cat Show held in May of 1895, the first major cat show ever held in the U.S.
Maine coons are available in a variety of 75 different color combinations. Popular colors include blue, red, black, white and brown. They can be with white patches of varying degrees or completely solid with no white. Maine Coons can be registered with TICA, CFA and Fife. Standard Fife Maine Coons are refereed to as European style. Standard CFA Maine Coons are consider American.
Although originally the breed had valuable hunting skills today’s breed is a slow paced hunter that is more likely to lick and cuddle your mouse than hunt it.

We are focused on selectively creating a genetically healthy wild look. Although our Maine Coons are achieving thicker boning, big paws, lynx tips and overall larger size they have no wild cat blood. Lynx tips on the ears are extremely impressive that have been rumored to have come from crossing with the American Lynx however this is genetically impossible. This just goes to show how wild they look. Our gentle giants are not only stunning but the highest caliber temperament. Let us express extreme gratefulness to the breeders around the world who have made our dreams possible. These strong American and European lines are selected for large size, superb quality, excellent temperament, heavy boning, large paws, long tails, beautiful muzzles, tall ears, lynx tips and to stand apart from the average Maine Coon.
