I've been told on another forum about the heart problem Maine Coons have, and i've already noted it as a priority of check on the cat. the test is made with ultrasound.
I haven't bred a pedigreed cat before, i'm going to have my first litter soon (my youngest one will be the joy of 2 baby kittens), but that's why i am here, i wish to learn all about it
i know it takes quite a big amount of money, specialy for maine coon about 800 - 1400 dolars is the price from what i've seen, plus shiping and other stuff.
There is a maine coon breeder in my country, but doesn't exactly seem that trustworthy, they just started also and only has a pair. I would rather start out with cats that I know are top quality, and i would prefer a pair because of the lack of maine coon cats in my country.
My thought was to start out with a pair indoors, with a special bedroom for the male, then delevope this at the country side, where we have a big house, and my husband's boyfriend is very very good with cats.
By the time i am able to get my desired pair, my little fluffynes will have her cubs ready for adoption, and the other two sweeties will be neutered already.
