Black Smoke Maine Coon male with his tail in the air

My decision to have a black smoke Maine Coon kitten in my breeding program was a good one!  There’s just something so deep and royal about black smoke Maine Coons that have me squealing with excitement over our latest addition to the Sassy Koonz family.

His official Pedigree name is Black Blood Bullar, but we call him “Illuminati”. He is 100% European Maine Coon, with every wonderful feature that you can expect. 

Illuminati was the foundation Sire for our cattery. He was the first male to ever father kittens, and did a great job. He has since retired from his career as a Stud. He’s living is his best life as a lazy fellow on the couch with a retired Queen of ours, Valkyrie.

You can read all about Iluminati below, and get to know our very first D\dad. He started it all. We miss him, but are also glad he’s enjoying his retired life.

Personality of Illuminati

Illuminati, a black smoke maine coon kitten with white markings was imported from Russia.  It’s no secret that it’s a long train ride from Europe. 

When he arrived and got into the car, he was immediately let out of the carrier to stretch his legs. He was purring and rubbing all over me and Dan.  He was just so happy to see us, and has been a total lovebug ever since. 

His temperament is calm, relaxed and super laid back – even as a kitten! His breeder kept him and his littermates in her home, and she even slept with him.

Why a Black Smoke Maine Coon Though?

After much thought as to where I want the Sassy Koonz Breeding program to go, I decided that a Black Smoke (with some white) would be the perfect boy to make things happen.

My goal is to focus on all variations of classic Maine Coon colors, which are reds, blacks, blues and creams. These are just a few of the gorgeous Maine Coon colors and patterns.

Since the boy is the staple to every Maine Coon breeder’s cattery, having a black smoke Maine Coon stud will help me accomplish my goal of specializing in the black color of kittens. 

Illuminati situated nice and comfortable in his own studly space in the Sassy Koonz Cattery. Click here to take a virtual tour of the Sassy Koonz Cattery.

We don’t allow any of our cats outside, but he does enjoy lots of space both in his luxury apartment and his outdoor enclosure.

When paired with my Queens (which all are black or carry a variation of black) they procreate some of the most wonderful kittens in the United States!

  1. Thank you for bringing in a Tuxedo kitty. My first cat ever was a Tuxedo maine coon. He was the bestest cat ever.

    When do you plan on having your Tuxedo become a parent? How much would their offspring be?
    Thank you
