Blue

“Male”

We are happy to offer “BLU DIAMOND” as our cattery’s Sire. They say that a kitten gets it’s personality from its daddy, and that’s why we are so excited to offer “BLUE.” BLUE is the coolest, most laid back cat you will ever meet. And he is a talker! He’s got a greeting for everyone that walks in the room. His favorite greeting is, “Mow, Mow!” He charms the socks off the females too. They love his “Lion Cut” hair cut (pictured in the gallery section). BLUE’s daddy (Victor) was a cool customer too. And he was a big boy. Weighing in at just under 20 pounds. BLUE hasn’t reached that weight yet (at 14 months), but by the time he reaches maturity (3 years) he should be between 19-22 pounds.

Whisper – Arriving Feb. 2023

“Female”

We are out of our minds excited to announce the addition of ”Whisper” to our female breeder community. She is a Black Silver Tabby with white (shaded). In these first few pictures she is 6 weeks old. Her parents are the star breeders of a reputable USA Maine Coon Breeder. The Sire is a Blue Smoke and the Dam is Black Silver Tortie. Whisper will continue to assist us in meeting the demand our adoptive families have for the Black Silver color. The personality of this kitten is remarkable. She is playful, cuddly, brave, & smart. She has a maturity beyond her years. We look for only the very “Best of Breed” in our breeding cats. These are the qualities that both of her parents exhibit: 1) Perfect genetics – no DNA mutations; 2) Tested negative for Hip Dysplasia; 3) Tested negative for HCM via heart echocardiogram; 4) Nearly 0% of in-bleeding thru 10 generations based on 2046 ancestors; 5) A remarkable number of high level championship winning ancestors; 6) Incredibly sweet, friendly & brave personalities; 7) As well as both parents being “Best in Breed” breeders for a top Maine Coon breeder. Additionally, Whisper’s parents have been consistently producing large kittens (22 pound males & 20 pound females). We have very high expectations for her kittens, and can’t wait to meet her. We can all expect to see her first litter in spring of 2024.

Verby

“Female”

This Silver beauty is “Verbena,” and she is a Silver Tortie Ticked Tabby (with a shaded gene). Verby is the energizer kitty. She never stops. We’ve never seen so much energy in one cat. Don’t get me wrong, she’s not wild (out of her mind energetic) but just constantly moving. And nearly impossible to capture in a picture. She’s like bigfoot…every photo is either in motion or blurred! But what a fun kitty. Outgoing doesn’t come close to describing this fur baby. She loves everyone she meets, and she will talk your leg off. Her gorgeous Silver fur is like silk to the touch. We are so excited to include her in our cattery. Verby’s next litter will be February of 2023.

Rosie

“Female”

This Lynx looking beauty is the “Rose of Sharon,” and she is a Black Tabby (with a touch of gold) that we are thrilled to be bringing into the cattery. We hope to bring out more of her golden tones in coming litters. She is everything that we hoped for in a breeding female…size, personality, and uniqueness. We call her “Cougra” (for short) because her face looks just like a cougar. Our 30 year experienced Vet remarked the first time we took her in for a checkup, “She looks like a cougar kitten!” The Vet was a little startled, to say the least. Rosie is truly unique. Her personality is affectionate and loving. She loves to be cuddled. And if she comes anywhere close to filling those huge paws, she will be as big as anything we have in the cattery. We can’t wait to meet her first litter. Rosie’s grand-daddy’s on the Sire & Dam sides were both Grand International Champions. Rosie’s will have her first litter in early 2023.

Powder

“Female”

Our newest arrival from Russia! After a very long trip thru Poland and then Finland, she is finally in the USA. What a trooper! One of the longest, and most arduous trips that any of our cats have ever had to make, for sure. Her embattled trip to the U.S. caused Powder a lot of stress. But her outgoing spirit is taking it in stride. She is very affectionate cat and wants held by everyone. A big talker with a purrr motor louder than a chain saw. And what a big girl. Her daddy was 24 pounds and her mommy was 20 pounds. And she is already 17 pounds at 15 months old. Update: Because of the stress Powder endured on her trip to the U.S., she will not have her next litter until October 2023.

Vassy

“Female”

We were so excited when VASSY (Vasilissa) arrived from Russia. She made the 7500 mile trip like a true jet-setter. The distance never slowed her down. Her pedigree-lineage is stacked with Grand International Champions, World Champions. As a matter of fact, her grandfather is the World Champion Starark Vidzhey, a beautiful Black Silver Shaded. She is our Russian beauty, and did I mention that she is a perfect mommy? We are so fortunate to have Vassy as a member of our cattery. We are still trying to teach her English, but it’s obvious she knows what “Blue’s” “Mow, Mow” means, because it always make her purrr.

Miss Opal

“Female”

What a great day it was when we secured MISS OPAL from Coon’s Ransom, as one of our female breeders. There are just 2 words to describe MISS OPAL, “Beautiful” and “Happy”! She is a Black Smoke beauty with a constant smile on her face. She loves to play “Catch me if you can!?” What a fun cat she is. Miss Opal’s pedigree is predominantly Russian/Belgium breeding although she was born here in the USA (check out her pedigree thru the link below). MISS OPAL will have her next litter in March of 2023.

Tigra

“Female”

Wow, is she going to be a huge cat! Her paws are as big as most male Maine Coons. TIGRA is one of the 4 Ukrainian females that we secured from the litter of Grand International Champion “ABENAKI RAFINAD”. But even more impressive is her distant pedigree…it is loaded with Grand and Great Grand Parents that have dominated the show circuit in Eastern Europe as Grand International Champions. A gorgeous Blue Tabby color with big lynx tipped ears. And the older she gets the more it is looking like she’s developing a silver undercoat. TIGRA is always at the center of attention. Loves to play “sneak attack” with her sisters.

Ophelia

“Female”

Without a doubt the most beautiful Maine Coon I have ever seen. OPHELIA is another one of the Ukrainian females that we secured from the litter of Grand International Champion “ABENAKI RAFINAD”. A person could write a novel on the characteristics and attributes of this cat. She has such a unique blend of Blue and Black coloring with a light silver belly and tail with long black lynx tipped ears. She is the oldest and biggest of the Ukrainian females. Her personally is genteel and prissy. While the other cats have a loud voice, OPHELIA has a soft meow. She loves to play. She is the runner of the crew…she loves to run and chase her sisters. And nothing gets past OPHELIA…she is constantly on-the-alert to everything that’s going on around her. Maybe its that Big Sister looking out for all the others thing….all those and many other reasons why she is an amazing cat. She will be having a litter the first of February of 2023.

Oliriya

“Female”

I now believe in a color shifting cat…OLIRIYA, literally changes color every day. The older she gets the more unique her color. I guess its the “BLOTCHED” designation in her color code that causes her to change so often…but its like the 4 different seasons of a year…or maybe she is alerting us to the change of the season? Who knows, but regardless, she has unique “natural” talent. Another Ukrainian secured from the litter of Grand International Champion “ABENAKI RAFINAD”…OLIRIYA is a looker! When she first got to us, she was the big sister to the other cats, but now she has also incorporated the German Shepard. Her & Azer (German Shepard) are best buddies. OLIRIYA also loves to swim in her water bowl. You have heard of how much Maine Coons love water?…well OLIRIYA sets the standard for swimming cats…she swims in her water bowl, the dogs water bowl…she’d probably swim in the toilets if we didn’t keep them closed too…she is our crazy water-logged Maine Coon. We are planning a trip to the water park just for OLIRIYA this summer.
