Sassy Koonz Maine Coon Cattery is one out of only thirty-two registered catteries in the United States that has been awarded the Outstanding Cattery Award! To earn this award, a licensed veterinarian pays an on-site visit to the cattery and does a full inspection of the premises, the condition of the cats, cleanliness, and environmental factors.
We take great pride in the selection process for our Maine Coon babies. Every applicant is pre-screened before being approved to adopt one of our kittens. Every kitten that leaves our Maine Coon cattery will go to what we feel is the very best home. There are several hundred people on our Approved Guardians list, but it’s not a “waiting list” like most breeders have. Both males and females are delightful to have as pets.
The Maine Coon cat is the largest domestic cat breed, which draws a lot of deserved attention to this breed. Everyone who has been approved has an equal chance at adopting one of our Maine Coon kittens when they become available. This adoption process has worked out to be the best method for us, the babies, as well as our Guardians. It also allows you to continue looking for a kitten from other breeders and doesn’t lock you into one cattery for months and months.
We do, however, give preference to repeat buyers and new owners who are buying a pair of siblings from the same litter. This priority list gets to reserve a kitten before the Approved Guardians list has an opportunity. more recently, entire litters of kittens are being reserved by owners who want 2 kittens from the same litter. If you’re interested in reserving 2, then send us a message and we’ll add you to the priority list.
Maine Coon Kittens are $4,500 [Pets] – Breeding rights are $6,500.
