Welcome to Bounty Maine Coons! We are a small hobby cattery specializing in healthy, extra-large Maine Coons with superior conformation and breed type, as well as outstanding personalities. Our cattery, cats, and kittens are registered with both CFA and TICA and we compete regularly at shows sponsored by both organizations. Our breeding stock is DNA screened and cleared for HCM and SMA, PKD and PK-deficiency at the University of California-Davis and at Orivet labs, and we have regular screening echocardiograms done by the world-renowned feline cardiologist Dr Kate Meurs at the North Carolina State Veterinary School in Raleigh to ensure that our cats all have healthy hearts to go with their beautiful looks. We have combined breeding stock from top breeding and show catteries in the US and around the world to achieve the size, health, temperament, and the "wild look" that we prize in our cats.
We are located in the southeasternmost part of North Carolina, about 30 miles from Wilmington. We can ship and work with a courier service who can personally deliver your cat or kitten to you at any airport in the continental US, with travel in the passenger cabin, for little more than what it normally costs to ship via cargo!
Our cats are all raised as family members and DO NOT live in cages, nor are they isolated from the daily household activity and routine. Not even the males! They boys sleep on my bed with me every night and they do not fight or spray. They are secure with their position as cherished members of our family and have no need to compete. We are able to achieve this because we keep our numbers small and manageable. We do not look at this as a business. It is a passion that is based on the love of our cats and of this phenomenal breed. Once you have lived with a Maine Coon, you will never want to be without one!
Enjoy your visit to our website and if you would like to know more about our cats and kittens, we encourage you to reach out by email or telephone. You can also visit our page at Facebook, which tends to have more current information and photos.
