I'm happy to share with you my recommended Maine Coon Breeders. As much as I'd like to always have fur bomb European Maine Coon Kittens available for you, the future Sassy Koonz Guardian, it's just not possible.
Since I'm a small Maine Coon cattery, I'll only have a couple of litters of Maine Coon kittens for Sale each year. This means that the timing might not be perfect for you, because you're looking to add a new member to your family now, and you don't want to wait for a Sassy Koons kitten. I utterly and completely understand that you may not want to wait on me or the Sassy Koonz to find your purrfect love. I've been where you are...SEVERAL TIMES!
So I'm going to keep this page updated with a list of Recommended Maine Coon Breeders. To make it on my list of recommended Maine Coon Breeders, I must be able to sleep at night knowing that I've sent you to a reputable [in my eyes] Maine Coon Cattery on your quest to find your precious kitten.
Sassy Koonz Recommends Maine Coon Breeders under the following Guidelines:
- I have personally worked with them to purchase a Maine Coon Kitten and I'm 100% satisfied with my experience.
- I know someone personally who has purchased a kitten from them, and they're 100% satisfied.
- I've personally communicated with the Maine Coon Breeders on this list, know a bit about their Maine Coon Cattery, and I feel confident sending future Guardians to them.
I don't take the recommendation of recommending Maine Coon Breeders lightly. I know how important it is to know that your Maine Coon kitten has been well socialized, well taken care of, and the health and temperament of the cats is ultimately what's the most important qualities.
Please note that if a particular Maine Coon Breeder isn't on my list, it only means that they don't meet one of the requirements mentioned above. 🙂 And since I'm fairly new to the Cat Fancy, I don't know a whole heap of people yet. I'm sure this list of Recommended Maine Coon Breeders will grow as more time passes.
If you'd like to be added to my list of Maine Coon Breeders, just send me a message, let's talk!
Personal Recommendations for Maine Coon Breeders
(These are, of course, our recommendations if we don't have the perfect kitten for you or you want a kitten right now and don't want to wait).
HissyFit Coons is the cattery where I got Omega, my solid white male. He is the most beautiful, solid white coonie that I own and is just as sweet and gentle as he can be. My daughter Mallory also got her very beautiful Maine Coon "Novak" from HissyFit Coons. HissyFit is located in Travelers Rest, South Carolina
If I don't have a kitten available or you don't want to wait for a Sassy Koonz kitten, then Rhonda Lund at HissyFit Coons is the only breeder that I can genuinely recommend right now. She is ethical, genuine, and honest. She has beautiful Maine Coon Kittens and is just wonderful to work with. Tell her that Tracy Caywood sent you. 🙂
Choosing a Maine Coon Breeder
Beginning your search for a Maine Coon Breeder can be overwhelming at first. Once you start the journey of finding the perfect kitten, so many different things will happen. You'll quickly get sucked into the world of looking at kitten pictures all day! Maybe even all night!! LOL Then you'll start to realize that although they're just tiny babies, most of the kittens have already been reserved. Then you start to dig deeper, looking for a breeder who has available kittens! That's when you realize that you will most likely need to get on some waiting lists. This is the best way to get the opportunity to see available kittens first before they're offered to the public. Everyone handles their "waiting lists" differently, so read about their processes on their websites so you know what to expect.
Sassy Koonz has a Kitten Announcement List, and kittens are reserved on a first come, first serve basis. Feel free to get on our announcement list if you want to be notified any time we have Sassy Babies, and when they're ready to be reserved.
When it comes to choosing a Maine Coon Breeder to help you find your precious kitten, it should all boil down to who you feel the most comfortable working with after you've done your initial vetting. You're going to be working with this breeder for at least a couple of months, getting updates, photos and videos of your kitten. The waiting period before your kitten comes home is the hardest and longest wait ever! You definitely want to find someone who is passionate about what they're doing, and is excited to share the growth and development of your kitten while they're growing up in their home.
Take your time when it comes to selecting a breeder AND when you're looking for Maine Coon Kittens for Sale. Be patient! Your new kitten is out there, waiting for you - just like you're waiting for him/her. You WILL KNOW the perfect one when you see it! <3
