Do you have an application process to purchase a kitten?
Yes, we do have an application process. The potential family must first fill out our Application which will help us understand what they are looking for, allowing us to get to know the
family needs more clearly and ensure the kittens get placed in homes that are of a good match.
This process helps ensure that the kittens and their new families bring each other continual
health and happiness.
Who do you sell your kittens to?
We are willing to sell our kittens to serious buyers who have accepted the contractual terms and
are ready and capable of maintaining and caring for a Maine Coons best interest. Includes
neuter/spaying of a kitten following their vet’s recommendations and keeping them indoors
unless all care and attention has been taken, including but not limited to an enclosed exterior
space, on a leash and regularly treated with parasite prevention medications.
What steps are required to reserve a specific kitten out of a litter?
Once a questionnaire is completed, the applicant will choose to make a 500.00 deposit to be put
on a VIP list or choose the standard waiting list. Then, once a litter is born, those on a VIP list will
be given the first choice to purchase a kitten from the current litter or proceed to wait for the
next litter, should they be looking for a specific gender and/or pattern/colours. Once this process
is completed, giving the VIP families reasonable time to secure their kittens, we will move to the
standard waiting list, which will also be given a reasonable time to respond and provide their
deposit to secure their kitten. Finally, when all the people on both waitlists have been contacted,
the kittens will be available for adoption to the general public. At this point, the kittens will be
about ten weeks of age or younger, depending on the number of people on the waitlist,
response times, and kittens available.
Do you have a Waiting List / Notification List?
Yes, we have a waiting list. To be eligible to be placed on the waiting list, you must complete the
Application. On our waiting list, there are two separate sections. One section
is for clients who have completed the application process and questionnaire and placed a
deposit securing their place to reserve a kitten once it has been born. These would be the first
clients notified of a litter being born and given a choice to select a current kitten or continue to
wait for the next litter. The second section of our waitlist is for clients interested in filling out the
questionnaire but have not placed a deposit to reserve their place on the Vip list. At any point, a
person on the second list can place a deposit to reserve their kitten.
Do you offer shipping?
Yes, we do offer shipping; however, you must contact us personally to find out the shipping cost
as shipment may vary between locations.
When and where do we meet to pick up our kitten?
Kittens can go to their new homes at 12-14 weeks of age. Our home cattery is located in Calgary,
Alberta. For families who are able to pick up their kittens, this will require an appointment to be
Are your cats/kittens allowed outdoors? Do your 2 male stud cats live in your home?
No, all queens, studs, and kittens are not allowed outside unless in a protected and safe exterior
enclosure. This precaution is taken seriously because we want to ensure complete and absolute
health and safety for all the cats. Allowing cats to go outside in uncontrolled environments can
get them sick and catch diseases from other wild animals.
If someone tends to have minor allergies to cats, is male or female better?
According to research, light-coloured, long-haired female cats would be the least allergenic as
these cats tend to produce less Fel d 1 protein that causes people to have an allergic reaction. It
is said that longer-haired cats hold the protein closer to their skin.
Do you DNA test your cats? Do you offer a Health Guarantee?
All of our Queens and Sirs are genetically tested – ensuring the betterment of the breed in their
kittens. However, this does not guarantee that a kitten is a carrier of some genetic mutation, as
anomalies occur. We guarantee that all our kittens leaving our cattery are in good health and
have been cleared of any health concerns. They leave to go to their new homes having all their
vaccinations and medical exams, including the spay/neutering of the kitten as outlined and
recommended by our vet, Tica, and CCA-AFC associations.
Are kittens already spayed/neutered?
Yes, all our kittens are spayed/neutered before leaving our cattery. They are all considered to be
sold as pets unless discussed with us before purchasing a kitten. We are open to allowing
breeding rights to registered breeders in good standing at an extra cost to the purchaser.
Are kittens already litterbox trained?
Yes, kittens do not leave our home unless they are ready to succeed with their new families.
Litter training begins early in life when mom grooms them and teaches kittens the expectations
of living a feline life. Typically, they learn to use a litter box at around four weeks of age. Once
mom has done her job with them, we take on the added responsibility to ensure they
understand to look for a litter box from different areas in the house; this will help them adjust to
new litter box locations in the future.
