Welcome to MaineVu Maine Coons Cattery!
We are small home/hobbyist Maine Coon breeders, located in Cartersville, GA an hour Northwest of Atlanta.
We are negative for the Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and the Panleukopenia Virus (FPV).
All of our cats are registered with The International Cat Association (TICA), where we actively shown our cats on a routine basis.
Our reigning male, RW SGC MTNest J R of MaineVu, is a long tall boy who sits high on his legs, he has that prized square muzzle and strong chin, with tall perfectly placed ears and a direct open expression. We look forward to continuing his show career and are thrilled to announce that we now have 11 kittens sired by him.
We have five wonderful breeding girls, RW SGC MaineVu Fire in the Hole of DCFD, Abscatz Dreamboat Annie of MaineVu, CH MTNest Metallica of MaineVu , MaineVu Georgia and Cloistercoon Josie of MaineVu.
All of our cats are DNA Negative/Normal for HCM, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, Pyruvate Kinase PK Deficiency and SMA, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, We utilize the latest medical screening methods available at MaineVu Maine Coons to ensure that we do not knowingly pass on unhealthy lines. We use UC Davis Laboratory for all DNA testing.
As new methods of testing become available they will be incorporated into our breeding program.
Although LA SGC Woodpile Muddy Waters of MaineVu, aka: Mojo has been retired from breeding, he will remain with us and help train our kittens so that they will become wonderful companions or show cats.
Our kittens are born in a whelping pen in our kitten nursery and are handled daily. They remain with their mamma and siblings in the whelping pen until they are 4-5 weeks old and then they graduate to a play pen and begin learning litter box training 101, and are introduced to solid food. At 8 weeks old they receive their first vet visit and kitten vaccinations. They are then allowed the freedom of their nursery and our guest wing of our home under strict supervision. They receive their second set of vaccinations at 12 weeks, are wormed and receive a microchip.
Our motto is "Happy Tails & Happy Hearts"
Our goal is to improve, preserve and protect the Maine Coon Cat, bred to the TICA breed standard, and to produce Healthy, Happy Maine Coon Kittens as wonderful companions or show cats, who will greet you when you come home with head butts and trills of conversation.

Our kittens health and well being extremely important to us. Each kitten sees our vet Richard Moore, DVM, AAHA Accredited in Cartersville, GA, and receives two sets of age appropriate kitten vaccines, is wormed and receives a microchip. Our contract includes a spay/neuter, in-door only, non declaw policy and a 2 year health guarantee for heart related illness. If your kitten succumbs within that period of time we will replace your kitten from the next available litter, provided that you obtain a necropsy from a board certified feline veterinarian. Please be sure to bring your kitten to your vet within 72 hours of possession, for a healthy kitten check up. Failure to comply with this, will void your health guarantee.

We'd like to thank all the judges who awarded him Finals.
We will be at the the SE Regional show in Pigeon Forge Show (July 27/28).
Some of the questions we get asked is "how can you let them go" or "why do you do this". Well, here is a note we just received from Archie's new mom:
Dear Phil and Margie,
Sorry I missed you last night . Well Archie has just moved right in. He had a great night and as you can see in the picture has bonded with Ozzie who he follows around and bites his tail. He has explored every square inch of the house. He was so good on his way home yesterday. On the plane I kept seeing this little face squashed up near the opening. He didn't cry at all. Crossing the boarder was no problem. They didn't even ask for his papers. He is eating and drinking lots of water and he uses the big boy litter box. He is a character beyond.
Andy is in love with him. Thank you again for helping produce the sweetest natured little guy.
We charge $1,600.00 for our kittens.
