DCFD Maine Coons has the right to refuse a sale for any reason.
Our kittens are our kids and their placement in a permanent, loving, forever home, is our first priority.
Our kittens can leave us between 12-16 weeks depending on health and weaning from mommy.
Maine Coon Breeder's & Fancier's Association -
"How old will the kitten be before it comes home?"
Ten weeks is the minimum, most breeders hold kittens until 12 weeks or maybe longer. MC's are a slow developing breed, and need a long period of nurturing from both their mothers and breeders. Kittens develop their sense of bonding with humans between 2 and 10 weeks of age - it's wrong to break their bond to their FIRST "human" - the breeder - any earlier. They also have not developed their immune systems or had all of their necessary shots before 10 weeks of age. Any breeder selling kittens younger than this is more interested in moving the kittens out and getting the money than in raising healthy, stable, happy kittens. At about 12-13 weeks, a MC kitten is going to be gaining a quarter to half pound a week, and is confident and ready to bounce right into its new home with confidence. Don't worry - they may be "big", but they are still "babies"!
**WE DO NOT SHIP KITTENS**
Beginning November 18, 2013, I will be joining a very large
number of other breeders across the U.S. no longer shipping
pets. Due to a change in Department of Agriculture
regulations for pet breeders, that USDA itself has interpreted
in contradictory ways, it is impossible for most persons who
sell pets to know whether it is legal to ship a pet that the
buyer has not seen in person. Violations of this rule carry
severe penalties. For our safety, ALL sales must take place
face to face.
This ruling is going to seriously curtail the choice of those
wishing to buy the pet of their choice unless you are willing to
travel to your breeder of choice regardless of distance. As
written, this will also affect service animals being made
available to those in need.
While we do understand the need to stop those who don't
properly care for their animals, and who knowingly sell sick
puppies & kittens, we already have state and federal laws for
If you would like to help us fight this bad choice of regulation
policy, please contact me or your breeder of choice to see
what you can do to help.
It is YOUR right to be able to buy a kitten from whoever you
choose and to pick it up personally or have your kitten
shipped to you or to meet your breeder at a mutually agreed
upon place to save you travel and expense. However you
only have that right if it remains OUR right to offer those
