How do I adopt an LMCooNCat Maine Coon Kitten?
Follow the steps below：
You need to seriously consider whether you are ready to add a new member in the future? What kind of cat suits your lifestyle, whether it's a boy, a girl, or a retired cat？ Also consider when you are ready to welcome new members, whether to choose available cats or join the waitlist for kittens from LMCooNCat.
Check our Maine Coon Kittens for Sale Page, to see if there are girls, boys or retired cats that suits your requirements and expectations. If you choose to join our waiting list, click the link above to see if we still have a wait list this year or next year, or click here to check our breeding plans. This is to better meet your needs.
Contact us, once you find a cat that suits your requirements and expectations, or decide to join the wait list for kittens from LMCooNCat, please get in touch with me immediately to ensure everything goes smoothly. (Click here)
After you and your familys have confirmed your choice, you need to pay a 30% deposit, which will ensure that you can hold the available kittens or retired cat, or pay $400 to join the waiting list so that we can reserve for you when there is a suitable cat.
During the waiting period, we will provide you with videos and photos of the kittens every two weeks so that you can witness their growth process with your eyes.
When the kitten is 15 weeks old and about to undergo Neuter/Spay surgery in a week, you need to pay the remaining amount and sign the relevant contract. You also need to tell us how you want to pick up the kitten or Cat. You can choose to pick it up yourself or choose white glove transportation service(Pet Nanny).
They will complete a Wellness Exam both before and after the surgery. Male cats need 3 days to recover after surgery, while female cats need 11 days before they can return to your home to ensure their health and happiness. We will provide you with all necessary information and support to ensure a smooth integration between you and the new member.
PRICE OF LMCOONCAT KITTEN
Why not refund the deposit?
Because having a cat means that you will be together for almost 20 years, and by putting down a deposit you are proving that you have considered her/him to be your family member.
We determine prices based strictly on TICA and CFA breed standards and my personal judgment.
Pet quality A (Not for breeding): several characteristics do not match the breed standard
Price: $2500-$2700 （15% of our cats are in this price range. ）
Pet quality B (Not for breeding): few characters do not match the breed standard
Price: $2750-$2950 （70% of our cats are in this price range. ）
Show quality (Not for breeding): single or few character traits do not match the breed standard
Price: $3000-$3500 （15% of our cats are in this price range. ）
(Black/Blue Silver/High Smoke) Shaded and Chinchilla (Not for breeding): fantastic color
Price: $3300 up
(Red/Cream Silver/High Smoke) Shaded and Shell (Not for breeding):
Price: $2500 up
(The price range is for all qualities.
The breeding rights of our cats are only given to catteries who are established Maine coon breeders with the same breeding philosophy and standards as we do. I only place a very small number of cats for breeding each year or for several years, mainly for trade. Before I choose to give you breeding rights, we need to communicate and get to know you over time. Under no circumstances will I place any pet quality cats for breeding and showing.
I want my cats' excellent offspring to carry the name of my cattery to serious friends' catteries around the world to continue the achievements and feats of my boys and girls, and if you want a cat from me, I want us to be friends before or after that, not buyers or sellers.
LMCooNCat Cattery will always have the right of first choice to select a cat to stay at the cattery (except for cats that have been selected and have paid the full deposit).
Additional costs (will be added if needed and will be borne by the customer)
Nanny's air delivery service: Major airports within the United States: $500-600
For those who live outside of California, we are sorry, we do not accept cargos, we only accept customers to pick up the kitten in person at Ontario Airport, in which case you need to purchase your own ticket and prepare the kitten package. After picking up the kitten, we will drop you off at the airport. If you don't have time to pick up your kitten, we now only accept cats delivered by pet Nanny's air delivery service to an airport near your home, shipping costs will vary depending on the destination and will be borne by the customer.
You can pick up your cat after the veterinarian's health report is issued, and you can come to my doorstep to meet me. Because of COVID-19 and to prevent feline viruses, you can't enter my home when picking up cats, for the safe of my family and my cats. For those who live in and around California, if you don't have time to pick up your cat, the cat delivery fee is $100 near Los Angeles, $100-$250 near San Francisco, $200-$400 near Oregon, $200-$500 near Washington.
You are prepared to pick up the cat in person, please bring a cat carrier, we can buy it for you.
Rabies vaccination: $40. Depending on where the cat is going, rabies may or may not be required before leaving the cattery. We do not vaccinate our cattery kittens for rabies unless it is necessary (rabies vaccine is not necessary for cats, has a chance of causing allergies, and through expert research, rabies vaccine is most likely the true culprit of sarcoma), guests can ask their own veterinarian to give their cat rabies upon receipt, and are responsible for any consequences.
Boarding fee: $5 per day
If the cat is not picked up or sent to a new home within 15 days after neutered/spayed, we will charge $5 per day for additional days of boarding.
