Hi, I'm Carrie, creator of Maine Coon Cat Nation. I hope you are enjoying your visit here! This is a busy place!

There are a few ways we can keep in touch. Our Facebook page is growing, and is a good place to visit. Facebook now offers direct messages to me, so you can also message me there. We also regularly "Tweet" our updates on Twitter.

If you have website comments or questions please take a moment to fill out the form below. I would appreciate your feedback. I look forward to hearing from you!

For breeders, I'm particularly interested in hearing from you! Do you have ideas, insights, or suggestions? Would you like to gain exposure here on Maine Coon Cat Nation? This is a thriving community of Maine Coon cat lovers. A good place to be seen!

If you have a pet product or pet website, and you are interested in advertising, exchanging links, or any other type of cat related business, contact me!

PS: With thousands of daily visitors, and hundreds of cat questions in our Q & A section, I may not be able to personally answer your individual cat care/behavior question if left here. This is a place to contact me for website related comments, questions, feedback, advertising requests, and other related topics.

Questions I May Not Be Able To Personally Answer:

  • Cat Questions: If you have a question about your kitty's behavior, care, nutrition or grooming, visit our Cat Questions section and drill down to your subject. Chances are good that it has been asked and answered! Some of the questions we are regularly asked include cat food brands, male/female differences, individual behaviors, even international shipping questions.

  • Where to Buy a Kitten/Find a breeder/rescue/or help placing a kitten: This is purely an informational website, about the breed. To find a breeder near you, try our directory.

  • Where To Submit Maine Coon Cat Pictures: Wondering where to submit pictures for our monthly photo album? Here it is: Upload Your Photo

  • Problems Submitting Maine Coon Cat Pictures: Your photos likely need to be resized. See below: How To Prep Photos For Upload

  • "Is My Cat A Maine Coon?" Lastly, do you want me to tell you if your cat is a Maine Coon? You'll want to visit our pages on this subject, Maine Coon Cat Traits and Maine Coon Mix, where you will find a place to submit your photos.

Please bear in mind that with the volume of these Maybe-Maine Coon entries, I now leave the commenting to our readers and community members.

PPS: About receiving a response: Many times, I respond via email but your email spam filter blocks me! So make sure to check your spam folder, or message me through FaceBook.

Important Update:

As the size and scope of MCCN has grown, so have the contacts! I love what a busy place this has become, and certainly hope you can find what you are looking for here.

With a large number of daily contacts, and nearly all of them exactly the questions in the above box, I simply can't keep up! For those of you with questions, please read the above paragraphs and follow those links.

Considering this website is a one-woman show, and I have answered virtually every cat trait/behavior/"is he a Coon?"/breeding & buying questions etc... please refer to our Cat Questions section! Thank You!

I hope you are enjoying your visit and finding lots of useful information!

I'm Carrie, creator and editor here. This site has become a full time project, both in writing and maintaining it. I absolutely love the process, and my sincere goal is to reach and help as many Maine Coon lovers as possible.

Answering visitor questions (which often inspires new articles!) and creating deep, complete cat-care articles is my passion.

My hope is that when a visitor lands on this site, they feel they have found a place where all of their Maine Coon questions are addressed. A place chalk full of breed specific information, cat care advice, and a place where they can share their beloved cats with others.

Do you know others who would enjoy the information here? It only takes a few minutes to share this site!

Do you have a blog or website? I have a favor to ask! If you have enjoyed our site, found it useful, and if you feel that future and current Maine Coon owners would benefit from the information here, would you consider posting a link to us on your own blog or website?

That way even more cat lovers can find us and use our growing article base as a resource.

About Link Exchanges:

If you are interested in exchanging links with us, great! Just Contact Me: I do prefer to set up deep-link exchanges. This provides the most value to both of our visitors. It is also the most beneficial for both of our sites.

What is deep-linking? It means, rather than placing a link to your homepage from a "links page" of mine, I link to one of your relevant pages from one of my relevant pages, and vice versa.

Or, use the code provided below to link to us, then Contact Me and I'll take it from there.

For Breeders:

Welcome! Are you interested in having your link on our breeder directory made into a quality, live, do-follow link to your website? I'm happy to oblige!

Due to the number of breeders listed, this is something I can do, if you are able to provide a link to this site in return.

It's easy! Simply copy and paste the code provided below onto your site, wherever you think it is a good fit. Then Contact Me using the form above to let me know it's done, and/or any other changes you'd like to make to your listing, such as additional info or a picture.

One last thing: although I prefer the short paragraph below as a link to us, if you would prefer to just link to our homepage with just our title, that would be fine. Simply copy and paste everything before " - If you are..."

Sharing this site on your website or blog is easy! Simply copy the HTML code provided below. Then paste it into your own website/blog. The link will open in a new window, with your site still open underneath.

The result will look like this (try it if you like):

Maine Coon Cat Nation - If you are a Maine Coon Cat lover, or simply love cats, you'll enjoy visiting Maine Coon Cat Nation. You'll find breed-specific articles, cat care advice, and a growing photo album. It covers subjects like grooming, diet, health care, kitten names, and much more. Share your pictures here, too!

If you prefer to link with a banner, here is one:

Simply save the image to your computer, and upload to your site, linking to any of our pages that you like!

I am happy to help with the code for this if needed.

Okay, that's enough business for now! If you have any comments or further questions, please feel free to contact me anytime! Have a great visit, and come back soon!

On Uploading Photos

by Susan Melching in Longmont, CO

Hi Carrie, I'm trying to upload photos and I have used Picknik to resize each one under 1 mb.

It still won't take them I'm trying to upload 4 photos. What do I do?



Hi Susan,

Thanks for asking! I will soon be adding some photo editing guidelines to the submission page itself. This is a common problem. 1mb is still huge!

First, cropping. It makes a much nicer picture if you can crop it before uploading.

Second, you'll want to resize it (this is not the same as compressing). When you are in Picnik, or Paint, or Corel there is a function called "resize" or sometimes "resample." It's usually found under the tab called "image."

A full resolution picture may have a width of over 3,000 pixels! You'll want to choose "save as" and give it a new name so you still have the high-quality original. Then resize the new picture to about 400 pixels in width. Save it, compressing just a little.

That should do it! If you still have trouble, contact me and we'll straighten it out!

All The Best,
