Spotlight On Maine Delight

How and when did you discover the Maine Coon Cat breed?

10 years ago I was introduced to my first Maine Coon through a good friend of mine. She had a beautiful, sweet, loving girl that inspired me to get my first Maine Coon.

How did you become involved in breeding, & how long have you been breeding Maine Coon cats?

I have been breeding Maine Coons for 8 years and have also been involved in breeding dogs for over 30 years. However the Maine Coon Breed is my only focus now.

When I decided to work with Maine Coons I spent a lot of time searching pedigrees, breed standards, health issue and all around best practices for maintaining a good environment for my cats and myself to live in.

Do you show your cats?

I show my cats on a regular bases and feel this is and important activity for all breeders to engage in.

Keeping up with the standard and any possible issues that may arise with any breed is key to a healthy program. Joining breed clubs also helps to understand breed specific organization (CFA, TICA) rule changes or legislative mandates.
