Welcome To Maineflame Maine Coons!
I (Annette) am a Registered Breeder with the NZCF. I have been breeding Maine Coons since 1999 and live in a rural setting on the outskirts of Pukekohe, South Auckland.
Maine Coons are one of the largest breeds of domestic cat. The body is solid and muscular, which is necessary for supporting their own weight, and the chest is broad. Maine Coons possess a rectangular body shape and are slow to physically mature; their full potential size is normally not reached until they are three to five years old. Their tail is long, tapering, and heavily furred, almost resembling a raccoon's tail. The Maine Coon is a semi longhaired, or medium-haired, cat. The coat is soft and silky, although texture may vary with coat color. Minimal grooming is required for the breed, compared to other long-haired breeds. Maine Coons are known as the "gentle giants" and possess above-average intelligence, making them relatively easy to train. They are known for being loyal to their family and cautious—but not mean—around strangers, but are independent and not clingy.
The Maine Coon is generally not known for being a "lap cat" but their gentle disposition makes the breed relaxed around dogs, other cats, and children. They are playful throughout their lives, with males tending to be more clownish and females generally possessing more dignity, yet both are equally affectionate. Many Maine Coons have a fascination with water. Maine Coons are also well known for chattering, chirping, "talking" (especially "talking back" to their owners), and making other vocalizations.
I pride myself in breeding large, healthy cats with wonderful natures and show quality looks!
NB: ALL my Breeding cats have been DNA tested for the HCM MyBPC3 gene and are NEG. This means ALL my kittens are free from this gene mutation.
