CaliCats is located near Thousand Oaks, CA. We show mostly in CFA and occasionally in TICA. CaliCats is breeding CFA National, Regional, Divisional (Asia) Regional Winners, Grand Champions and Grand Premiers. We do not sell breeding cats or kittens. Our Maine Coons are raised underfoot.
All kittens come with a health guarantee and are registered in the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) and can also be registered in The International Cat Fanciers' Association (TICA).
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 to secure the expensive knickknacks. 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.
