Welcome to CaliCats!
Greetings and welcome to CaliCats! Birthplace of award winning and well-loved stars!
Our gorgeous cats and kittens are located near Thousand Oaks, California. Raised underfoot, in a loving home, with plenty of room to roam and play or snuggle in for the inevitable nap, our cats and kittens thrive, growing to be healthy and strong.
Many of our kittens and some of our cats are raised to be show cats. Primarily our furry bundles of joy show in CFA (Cat Fanciers’ Association), but occasionally in TICA (The International Cat Association) as well. You may see our awards to date on our Awards Page.
CaliCats DOES NOT sell breeding cats or kittens.
All kittens come with a health guarantee and are registered in the CFA, occasionally they may be registered in TICA as well.
All CaliCats Maine Coons are DNA negative for HCM (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy), SMA, and PK Def. There is no family history of hip dysplasia in our cats. CaliCats’ breeding cats are tested for HCM on an ongoing basis, and all results show no sign of heart disease to date. If we get a cat with positive or equivocal result, the cat will be removed from our breeding program and spayed or neutered. Our goal is to never knowingly bring an unhealthy cat into this world, to suffer and cause their families to suffer. We do the best we can with the technology available.
If you are looking for a family member who will greet your guests at the door and interact with friends and family, this is the breed for you. Maine Coon Cats are known for their intelligence, loyalty, and companionship. They are sweet tempered, patient, loving, and sensitive. Maine Coons are easy to train. They are not known for their ballet-like moves, and can be a bit clumsy, so you need secure the expensive knick-knacks. These gentle giants are known for their chirps and trills, and for their playfulness. This is a long haired breed, so be prepared to spend approximately 15 minutes a week on combing and clipping nails.
