Dusty was a dream come true. She was exactly what I wanted. When she was born to our disappointment she appeared to be a male, and when she was 8 weeks old at her first vet appointment our vets agreed, so she was slatted to be a pet. "He" was scheduled to be neutered at 13 weeks old. Imagine our surprise when our vet called and let us know he was in fact a SHE! We were overjoyed. Dusty went on to successful show career, and motherhood. She produced (with Mojo of course) RW SGC MaineVu Fire in the Hole and MaineVu Georgia, Both Ariana and Georgia went on to produce another generation of fabulous cats. Dusty now lives in Marietta with one of her daughters, and is treated like a Queen. Sire: RW SGC MTNest Rochenbach of Valcoons  X Dam: Dracoonfly Smoke on the Water of MaineVu.

J R is a dream cat, he was a joy to show, and has already sired three litters! J R is from our very good friends Judy and David Bernbaum. In just 10 shows (I know it sounds like a lot, it isn't!) he earned the title of RW BW SGC. J R was the Best Maine Coon in TICA's Southeast Region, and the 3rd Best Cat. I could go on and on about how wonderful he is, but there's really not enough room!!

Every once in a while, you meet people that reaffirm your faith in humanity.

From the very first time I met Margie and Phil, it was clear how much they loved animals, and that their boutique Maine Coon breeding program was going to be something special. They breed their kittens with meticulous attention to genetic testing, and they care and love for new kitten as if it were their own, until they are finally ready to go to their forever home. As proud expecting cat parents, we were kept in close communication - it truly felt like we were always right there through the critical first several weeks of the kitten's development.

We went to Margie and Phil not once, but twice. Our beautiful MaineVu sisters, Tiny and Pixie, are the product of Margie and Phil's passion for their breeding program. Our cats are healthy, well socialized girls, with the classic Maine Coon look we are in love with.

As you would expect, becoming a forever home for a MaineVu cat is truly being welcomed into Margie and Phil's extended family. We have watched together as a family, as our lovely kitten sisters grow up together. MaineVu Tiny and MaineVu Pixie.

Marjorie and Phil have the most magnificent kittens.This is a labor of love for them and each time we have adopted from them, it was such a wonderful and exciting experience. They stay in touch through the process and love and adore these kittens.
We now have a male red/silver 9 month old. He is so sweet and funny, and is a fabulous playmate with our new puppy.
Not to mention he is stunning!!

Margie and Phil care so much for all of their cats that it comes through in their breeding practices. Keeping their program small lets them give each and every cat lots of individual attention. Their babies are beautiful and receive all of the testing and confirmation needed to keep the lines pristine. Love them and all their kitties.
