Mojo is one of the two cats we cannot ever part with. He was a terrific traveler and was on the road with us at one time for 26 weekends in a row. He attained his first Regional Win as a kitten. The following season as an adult, he attained his International Win as 14th best cat Internationally. We went to a few shows in his final season and earned a second Regional Win, which secured his Lifetime status. He then went on to produce healthy glorious kittens, making kitten buyers thrilled. His other achievements are a little different. In 2015 he had a photo shoot in NYC. His photo was chosen by Royal Canin to represent their Maine Coon Adult food. In 2016 he got a call for another shoot, only this was to be a "guest star" on the HBO series GIRLS! He had his own trailer that said "CAT'. Mojo is now retired and helps us raise his grandchildren.
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.
J R has made if perfectly clear that he shares my pillows and moves me over so he can get comfortable. If there's not enough room in the bed, he jumps down and starts his routine all over again. He wins, I move over.
Tallie is from our dear friends Judy and David Bernabum, and is a fabulous addition to our family. Though only in two shows, once as a kitten, and once as adult, she was the Best Kitten in her first show and Best Cat in her second show. She is a fabulous mother, delivering 8 kittens in her first litter with 7 kittens in her second litter.
The breeding between RW SGC MTNest Maxwell is Smart and Tallie was successful, and kittens are expected mid December.
Annie is from our wonderful friends Amy and Glenn Siegel of Abscatz Maine Coons. Annie is a wonderful black tortoiseshell. She is a big well balanced girl with a striking head type, a terrific boxy muzzle and strong chin and tall well set ears. Sire: RW GC DCFD Firestorm of Abscatz and Dam: CH Abscatz Sasha. Although Annie did not like showing she and RW SGC MTNest J R of MaineVu, two incredible litters.
Aja was born March 2, 2020, she is part of a litter of two girls from RW SGC MaineVu Fire in the Hole of DCFD (Ariana) and RW QGC Cloistercoon Quinn of Abscatz.
Aja is a stunning girl with a glimmering silver coat. Aja is hanging with our younger girls until Mother Nature decides on her future.
Aja has been bred to RW SGC MTNest J R of MaineVu. We are hoping for kittens in mid February 2021.
Every once in a while a kitten can take your breath away immediately. Dora did that to us. We just could not resist. Dora is a brown ticked tabby, out of RW SGC MTNest J R of MaineVu and Abscatz Dreamboat Annie of MaineVu.
Dora will stay with us, which also means we will be on the look out for the perfect male to add to our family!
Phil brought home our newest family member on Sunday. Ashley is a gorgeous combination of her parents Bernie and Pippa. She's a blue classic and white torbie. She purrs up a storm, is extremely inquisitive and very sure of herself. She walked in and gave notice that she was in charge! She has a long body, matched with a long tail, a wonderful profile and muzzle and ears perfectly placed.
Ruby , now called Rocket because she's a red rocket charging through the house is a welcome addition to our home and future breeding queen. She's a sweetheart with tons of personality. We adore this little rocket and her loving watching her mature.

Shadow was a dream to show! She earned a Kitten Regional Win and an Adult Regional Win. She earned her Supreme Grand Champion status at 8 months and 17 days old! Very unusual for a female to earn that title at such a young age.

Beck and his owners Monique and Josh Lewis showed him to perfection and he earned his Supreme Grand Champion Alter status followed by achieving an International Win in 2011. Beck was the Best Maine Coon Alter Internationally, and 11th best overall, as well as being the best alter in the Mid-Atlantic Region, He is also the Maine Coon representative on Animal Planet. Beck's Sire is IW SGC Koontucky Kactus Jack of MaineVu and Dracoonfly Calamity Jane of MaineVu
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.

MaineVu is a quality breeder with the integrity that you are looking for. I purchased my boy, Ragnar, from them two years ago a and had the most wonderful experience! They love the breed and strive to keep their breeding to standard. Always there for you when you need them too! Phil and Marjorie are trustworthy, they love and understand the breed, the cats are family to them and they are allowed throughout the house. Testing is always done on their breeding cats to ensure there are no genetic issues.

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.
