From MajestiCoon – Maine Coon cats are the only native long-haired breed in America and we introduced a top breeding line into the UK in 1980 from which some of our existing breeding cats descend. Many of our Maine Coons have subsequently gone on to continue our legacy around the world, including the USA. Lucille & Larry Clarke-Smith have recently retired from breeding these beautiful Maine Coons and the Majesticoon breeding program and bloodlines will continue in the USA in the very capable hands of Ginnie & Steve Lane of OptiCoons Maine Coon cattery in Dunnellon, Florida. They will continue to breed MajestiCoon Maine Coons to high standards using proven bloodlines. OptiCoons will continue to breed both Original OptiCoons Kittens and Authentic MajestiCoons from its Florida-based cattery.
From OptiCoons – Lucille & Larry Clarke-Smith have been cherished friends and mentors of OptiCoons since its inception many years ago and we are committed to carrying on the fabulous bloodlines that have been so carefully created over the years. We recognize the responsibility when taking on such a challenge and we will meet it with high regard. The acquisition was made very easy with both catteries being deeply rooted in ethical breeding and strong health testing protocols. All MajestiCoons now live in Florida after a successful transition flight last week.
