Florida Maine Coons Frequently Asked Questions

Please choose a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

Our fully pedigreed Healthy, Affordable and Adorable Maine Coon Kittens are priced by the litter. This is all dependent on many factors such as; confirmation and show quality, color and markings and more. Our Maine Coon Kittens are bred to high ethical standards and proper bloodline matching and genetic testing. They are raised in our home as part of our family with grand children and dogs.

These kittens are highly affordable considering the high quality sought after bloodlines they will carry. We don’t just put a male and female together and sell kittens. That would be in our opinion irresponsible to the breed and an unethical way to do business. We are a TICA approved cattery.

Florida Maine Coon Kittens are ready for their new homes around 12 weeks of age. We will work together to select a meeting spot based on our locations. You can also come to our cattery if you’re local.

No, as a general rule sorry we do not, all of our kittens are sold as pet only /non-breeding. On occasion, based on bloodlines we may trade or sell to fully qualified breeders.

Yes, we can provide shipping nationwide, average costs run between $300-400 dollars. We can also arrange personal delivery to your closest major airport. Prices can be quoted.

No, it is up to the buyer to have their kitten spay or neutered between typically around 12 months of age. Maine coon cats grow until 3 years of age and early spay/neuter can stunt this growth. Kittens are not sold with breeding rights and once females start going into heat you can spay. Our European Maine Coon kittens can take up to 18 months to start estrus.

The Maine Coons and all female cats can get a uterine infection called Pyometra. This often happens after a female has too many heat cycles without breeding. This is a fatal infection and can require an emergency spay.

So it’s important for the health of your cat that you spay her after her first heat cycle or under the advice of your veterinarian. Males should be left intact as long as possible to get best size. They become sexually mature around 12 months of age. Spay and Neuter will not stop all growth and your cat will continue to grow until 3 years of age and sometimes up to 5 years.

Your kitten will get his or her age appropriate vaccines before coming home. You will be provided with all the veterinary documents. Kittens will be dewormed as a precautionary measure. All kittens are also FELV and FIV negative at the time of leaving our cattery.

All our adult breeding cats are negative for all feline diseases including HCM, SMA and PKdef.

It will be the new owner’s responsibility to finish the kittens remaining booster shot and rabies shot. Rabies vaccine may be given after the kitten is 16 weeks old. All kittens are veterinarian checked before leaving our home and going to yours. All kittens come with a copy of that veterinary record.

Your kitten will be registered with its litter at birth with TICA under our Cattery OptiCoons. You will receive your registration documentation after proof of spay or neuter has been provided to OptiCoons. Spaying and neutering are the financial responsibility of the new family. You may then register the kitten under your name.
