What is the price for A kitten?

The price varies on a kitten-by-kitten basis but is typically from $1,600-$2,000 (plus tax if applicable). Some are more some are less. We have a unique breed look you won't find anywhere else and that's because our original studs and queens were imported from different countries in Europe (Germany, Ukraine and Russia). The only other place you can get a Maine Coon similar to CoonKingdom is directly from Europe (or another country) and thats going to cost you a fortune (over $3,000 for the cat, flight/shipping, paperwork, etc.). This is the amazing Maine Coon look people love and we work hard to maintain that feral large Maine Coon look everyone loves. We also place a very high emphasis on the temperament, we have a unique gentle loving personality that we breed for. All in all, pound for pound, and we can't emphasis this enough YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. Don't settle for that standard Maine Coon look.


Are your CAts and kittens pedigreed and registered?

YES all of our studs and queens are registered with the CFA (The Worlds Largest Registry for Pedigreed Cats) www.cfa.org 

Our Studs and Queens have national and world champion bloodlines. Your kitten is a pedigreed purebred Maine Coon and can be registered with the CFA if you choose. You will receive the paperwork (called a blue slip) to register the kitten with the CFA. Registering is essential if you would like to show your kitten or simply want the official document to show your kitten/cat is pedigreed. The cost to register is $14 if registered within 30 days of purchase or $19 anytime thereafter. Registration can also be done online, please visit: http://cfa.org/Registration/OnlineIndividualRegistration.aspx


Do you test for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)?

YES, at Coon-Kingdom we test all of our breeding Studs and Queens for HCM using the UC Davis Veterinary Genetics Laboratory. All of our breeding Maine Coons are N/N meaning they are Normal and have ZERO copies of the A31P mutation associated with HCM in Maine Coon cats.


WHAT IS HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY (HCM)?

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy is the most common cardiac disease in cats. Affected cats are at risk of sudden cardiac death due to defects that produce increased left ventricular heart muscle thickness. In the Maine Coon breed, the A31P mutation in the cardiac myosin binding protein C gene (MYBPC3) has been found to be associated with increased risk for HCM.

What is the process for getting a kitten?

​Please email us first and we will send you a copy of our contract and cover a few other items. If you agree with the terms then we will proceed with adding you to the waitlist. We'll also discuss with you to see if you are set on a specific color and gender. Once we have a kitten available that meets your specified preferences we will email you to set up an in person visit to meet the kitten. Typically kittens will be 3-4 months old and will have all the vaccinations and be spayed/neutered. Once you see the kitten you will be able to take the kitten directly home with you that day. We do our best to keep you updated several weeks before the kittens become available so you can prepare to take a kitten home.
