We are a family based cattery located in Ashland (central) New
Hampshire, just south of the White Mountains. Our passion for this
breed has lead is into showing and breeding them. We primarily show TICA and CFA.
We generally breed health tested
show lines. Pedigrees fascinate us and we love
researching and studying them.
We breed for health, temperament & type. Before the age of 2 years all of
our males and most of our female breeding cats are screened by a local cardiologist to ensure our
cats are free of HCM
at that time. HCM is sadly a too common health issue in our breed.
Another common problem in Maine Coons is gum problems (gingivitis
and stomatitis). We never breed a cat with bad gums, we found
it just gets passed along too easily. Over the years we have
tried to improve our cats gums by selective breeding.
How Our Cats Live:
adult cats (females and alters) have free run of the house. We have
a nice penned in area under our porch where our cats can go in and
out as they please through a kitty door in the window. They love it
out there, whether it's 95 degrees in the summer or 20 degrees in
the winter we can always find someone outside. The alters, girls & kittens have
half the pen, while the boys share the other half. It is so nice our
cats can enjoy the outdoors without the dangers of predators, cars,
This past summer we finished our
deck so the cats have even more space to enjoy the outdoors.
We can always find the kittens out there playing in the early
morning hours during the summer, or laying stretched out soaking up
the sun in the afternoon.

Our kittens are raised in our
bedrooms until they get their first vaccine at 12 weeks of age. Then
they get run of the house with the girls and alters. We are always
home for the birth of all our litters, we believe in being there for
our moms for their comfort and safety.
