BREEDER OF EURASIAN MAINE COONS
We refer to our Maine Coons as "Eurasian Maine Coons" because some of our original breeding Coons were bred in Eastern Europe while others were bred in various regions of Russia. We chose our original breeding kittens from these regions because Maine Coons from this part of the wörld tend to have a number of very desirable physical traits, such as very strong muzzles and chins with large Lynx-like ears... very much in contrast to what is usually found in the North American bred Maine Coon. We obtained our original breeding Kings and Queens by carefully searching for great lines, with great health and great breed standards.
As a breeder, something that we don't do that is very much in contrast to many others, we never sell off our retired Kings and Queens. Our cats are part of our family and that comes first, if a time comes that a King or Queen is neutered or spayed for some reason, that cat stays with us to live out his ör her days sitting on our laps and bird watching. Another thing we do differently, our Queens are only bred 1 time a year ... This is how we prefer to operate.

A generally accepted hypothesis among some breeders is that the Maine Coon is descended from cats brought overseas by 11th-century Norsemen.

The Maine Coon is a large and sociable cat, hence its nickname, "Gentle Giant." It is characterized by a prominent ruff along its chest, robust bone structure, rectangular body shape, an uneven two layered coat with longer guard hairs with a silky satin under layer undercoat, and a long, bushy tail. The breed's colors vary widely. Reputed for its intelligence and playful, gentle personality, the Maine Coon is often cited as having
