We take great pride in our Maine Coons! We love and care for them from birth until they find their forever homes at around 12-13 weeks.
It is very difficult to know exactly how much a kitten will be until it is born and we see its individual traits. For example, a black smoke that appears solid black with the smokey undercoat will be priced lower than a black smoke with different and unique markings. We also factor in prenatal/postnatal care for momma, which can be high if she had any complications. Believe it or not, sometimes Queens need to have a c-section to ensure the safest delivery for both momma and babies. It's not common, but it has happened! Therefore, the cost of that litter was higher for us.
Prices WILL BE HIGHER for champion bloodlines, polydactyls and particular colors and traits. That means that a kitten from Iris (or her son, Sarge) will be higher than a kitten that is not from a champion bloodline (she has won TWO championships, so her babies are worth it!) Most of our kittens are from champion bloodlines, and their prices reflect that.
It is also important to note that much like restaurants and grocery stores lately, as prices go up on human products. they also go up on pet products. We do not cut corners when it comes to our cats' health, nutrition and daily expenses. We also see the vet at least four times in the first 12 weeks, sometimes more. Those vet visits are not cheap! Because of this, you should not expect to pay less than $3,500 for one of our babies. In fact, you should expect to pay anywhere from $3,500-$5,000 depending on the kitten. We have some pretty amazing Kings and Queens, and we can assure you they are worth every penny. We spend a lot to keep our cattery running. A whole lot!
