ALL ABOUT US
Hello! We are a family living in Riverside, California, USA. LMCooNcat is registered with CFA at the end of 2019 and with TICA at the end of 2021, we only breed Maine Coons, Our breeding cats come from serious breeders in Japan, Poland, Russia and Italy. we chose to breed Maine Coons because we love their size and style, we are very fond of large animals and Maine Coons fulfill all our fantasies, we love this breed.
We love all types of Maine Coons, sweet or wild, old or modern, as long as the facial structure is not EXTREME. We focus on in our breeding process, large and tall ears, delicate features, large and oval eyes, the pursuit of strong bodies, shiny coats, and good health. We are always in communication and cooperation with excellent breeders all over the world to blend more advantages and create more perfect kittens that meet the CFA and TICA standards.
We test all of our breeding cats for DNA, Echocardiogram, and x-ray for hips to ensure our cats and kittens are healthy, but this is not a 100% guarantee that all kittens are healthy, so our contract is written to compensate for the occurrence of Respiratory diseases, DNA, HCM, hip dysplasia, cancer, tumors, Fip, and unexplained death, we strive to discipline ourselves and we will do our best for the health of our kittens.
We strive to breed the best animals, educate their new owners, and ensure that these precious animals receive the love, care, and attention they deserve. Contact us to learn more about our approach and philosophy.

How to know the pedigree of all our cats?
We never hide our Breeding Cats pedigrees because I am proud of all my Breeding Cats, the lines and their breeders. Click on the Pawpeds link below our Kings or Queens Info.
MAINE COONS HEALTH
All of our cats are tested for HCM(MYBPC gene), PKDef and SMA genes prior to breeding. Pkdef can only cause disease in homozygous, but my goal is to have 100% of my cattery's breeding cats not carry or have Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency (PKDef). So only our breeding cats will be bred if they are double negative in all three tests. Test reports are provided by The Cat Fanciers' Association DNA Test (CFA, Neogen) Or Optimal Selection.
Hip dysplasia and HCM are relatively rare genetic disorders in cats, and there is no authoritative laboratory that can provide genetic testing for hip dysplasia. Hip dysplasia and cardiomegaly involve multiple genes, so we cannot accurately determine whether a kitten carries the causative gene or develops the disease. However, according to available research data, if the parents have NOMAL hip and heart, the offspring will have a much lower chance of having hip dysplasia and HCM.
All of our breeding cats will have an x-ray check of the hip joint, an echocardiogram once every 24-30 months for females and once every 13-18 months for males. To ensure we bring you a healthy family member.
Socialization of our kittens?
1. Spend time with kittens every day to help them adapt to people and other animals.
2. Gradually introduce kittens to new people, toys and environments in a patient manner.
3. Provide kittens with appropriate play items, such as tunnels, scratching posts and toys.
4. Ensure kittens have enough opportunities to play and explore.
5. Allow kittens to interact with other cats and animals in a safe and controlled environment.
6. Use a vacuum cleaner or hair dryer to make kittens less afraid of noise.
