COCOON MAINE COONS

About Us

My name is Val and with my husband Andrew run a small breeding cattery in the heart of Summer Wine Country. I run my own dog walking and pet sitting business. I sometimes act as a steward at cat shows mainly in the north of England.

We first fell in love with Maine Coons in 1993 when we saw a photo of one in a magazine. After some research we found out about the Maine Coon Cat Show which is held every June. So off we went to the Midlands to see them in the flesh, we weren't disappointed, we saw many different colours but fell in love with the reds.

It wasn't until a few years later we were able to have a kitten. We decided to get two kittens because we had an old cat of 15 years called Bubbles, who disappeared for eight months when she was five after we introduced a kitten to her. We thought they might play together and leave her alone......which they did! So Keverstone Bud Wiser (Buddy) and Keverstone Uptowngirl (Billie) came to live with us.

That was the beginning of our Maine Coon family. It didn't stop there we have acquired four more since then, all but one from our friends Steve and Daphne Butters who have given us help and support over the years.

We breed tabbies in most colours. The kittens are born in the house usually in my wardrobe. They are socialized early with our other cats and Madge our Labrador. The kittens leave our house (reluctantly) at 13/14 weeks old, spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, registered with GCCF (on the non active register), four weeks free pet insurance, full pedigree, diet sheet and goody bag. The kittens are confident and outgoing and given lots of love and attention. Our aim is to breed cats with good temperament and type which we feel is most important. I do not sell kittens for breeding purposes or re-home any retired breeding queens. I also take back any of the cats I have bred if the owners cannot look after them anymore.

Our cats live indoors but have access to a cat run at the front of the house. We have no children living at home now, but the grandchildren and neighbours children often visit when there are kittens around.

All our breeding queens have been tested normal for the HCM gene

We hope you will enjoy meeting our cats...................................
