"Timothy has been such a wonderful addition to our family. He's not only beautiful but very friendly, playful and loving. He loves to snuggle and cuddle and be held.
Timothy is also very healthy, which was the most important thing to me. When my vet examined him, she was so impressed with his looks and said he was very healthy.
Karen was fabulous, she sent me pictures and gave me updates…. The waiting to pick up my little fur baby was long, but it was worth the wait, and having all the pictures and updates made it easier.
Timothy is wonderful and Karen is fantastic to work with. She loves her cats and all the kittens and it shows. She spends time with them, and they are very well socialized when the leave for their forever home.
When I get another maine coon, it will only be from DCFD. "

Have a wonderful weekend. :)THANK YOU SO MUCH!We actually attended a cat show together a couple of years ago in Timonium, MD, which is where we fell in love with Maine Coons. I knew I had to have one in the future from that point on! We started our search for reputable breeders a couple of months ago and Ryan stumbled upon your website. We were both quite impressed with what we saw and already felt comfortable, which was not the case with a handful of other sites we found. We were happy to see numerous photos of your cats, strict rules to maintain healthy kitties, and a kitten application. I was so excited that Ryan found you and was so thrilled that my dream of owning a Maine Coon could soon come true! We were impressed from the beginning and still are to this day - almost one month after bringing our girl home and about 4 months after finding you. When we were able to pick up our girl, the love in your house was very apparent. This shows in our own kitten, too! Binx is quite a lover and gets along with our two older cats wonderfully. Even to this day, we thank you for being available to answer any questions or concerns. We will always recommend you to others and will always come to you if our family decides to grow any larger.Hi Karen and Chuck,Ryan and I wanted to reach out to you and thank you again for our precious new baby, Binx!

"I had been looking for a Maine Coon kitten for about 6 months when I found Karen and Chuck of DCFD Maine Coons. I had met several other breeders prior that I did not feel comfortable with. One in particular was very bad. I found that the kittens from these breeders did not even look like a Maine Coon. I finally found DCFD and I was impressed. I was required to complete a kitten application and thought this was an excellent way to screen prospective kitten owners. It told me that DCFD put the welfare of their kittens first. They also stipulated on their website that they don't allow prospective kitten adoptees to visit the kittens. I also liked that they put the health of their kittens first and don't take chances that the kittens would get sick. I wanted a healthy kitten. Karen will send all the pictures anyone could possibly want. She will send pictures of the kittens parents and siblings. She is constantly posting pictures on Facebook to show everyone these beautiful kittens.
Now I want to tell you about my kitten, Harry. I picked him up at 12 weeks. He was healthy, curious, and not timid. I have 2 Australian Shepherds and he fit right in with them. He uses the litter box without fail. He is lovable and purrs constantly. He is playful and a joy to have in my home. I took him to my vet and they were very impressed. At 12 weeks he already weighed a little over 3 pounds. 2 weeks later I took him for shots and he was 5 pounds. He isn't plump just big as he should be. He looks like a Maine Coon. He gets in the usual kitten trouble but is very gentle. I am very happy I found DCFD. Next week I pickup my second kitten named Stella.
When I picked Harry up Karen was working and Chuck was there. Chuck was very nice and explained what I should feed my kitten. He gave me all the shot information he was very good at making sure I would care for Harry in the best way. There were several other cats that were very loving and not at all afraid of me. I very much enjoyed meeting all of them.
I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a healthy, well adjusted, and loving kitten to contact Karen and Chuck. You won't be disappointed."

"Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF): St Louis Complete Customer Review of DCFD MAINE COONS. Chuck and Karen are very Professional and accommodating to customer needs! What a wonderful breeder/cattery.
Spoiler Alert - I hated cats for over 30 years! I am VERY allergic to cats. I purchased two Maine coons from a breeder in Kentucky because I love my wife more than my physical comfort. To my surprise, this particular breed of cats does not cause an allergic reaction for a lot of people. Luckily I have NO allergic reactions to this breed. SOMEHOW I fell in love with one of the cats I purchased (Bandit), who died after a few years from congestive heart failure. The breeder is no longer in operation and stated they never had any heart health issues. I was/am extremely skeptical of their reply.
I searched for a few months to find myself a new little buddy. I located DCFD MAINE COONS website. I had no problems making contact with Chuck. I explained my situation and expressed my concerns. I advised Chuck what my preferences were. Chuck was very reassuring. He outlined how he and his wife conduct business. Chuck informed me what each step in the process to purchase a kitten from them would entail. I was advised to complete the kitten inquiry/application form, which I did. Chuck or Karen notified me after the birth or each litter regarding the kittens color and sex. I declined each litter until a kitten was born meeting my preferred criteria.
Around September of 2016 a litter was produced meeting my preferred criteria. I selected the kitten I liked. I received deposit instructions from Karen and Chuck to use PayPal, which was very easy and safe to do. I was provided health and picture updates as my kitten (Ranger) progressed. I was emailed the contract to review and sign. I was emailed kitten care instructions, veterinarian instructions, and tips on traveling with a new kitten and introducing kittens to other pets in the home. Chuck and Karen offered to meet me at the airport to transfer custody of Ranger. They saved me so much time and money through this whole process! The peace of mind was just as valuable to me.
The Big day finally came in December 2016. I flew from St Louis to Philadelphia. Chuck met me at the airport gate. Everything Chuck and Karen promised was delivered. They were wonderful to do business with, easy to communicate with, and they made every step clear. I always knew where I was in the process and what was expected by each party.
Chuck and Karen are very professional and accommodating to my requests. I LOVE my new buddy Ranger. My older maine coon (Storm) and Ranger are buddies. The kids give both our cats so much attention. They each have a great disposition. This is a wonderful family breed. Ranger is a great addition to our family."
Thanks for everything Chuck and Karen!

"I always wanted a maine coon kitten but it took nearly 2 years to finally find a breeder that I felt comfortable to trust. Karen and Chuck were very accommodating, responsive, they replied to every email I sent. I wanted a ginger red male and as soon as they got one, Karen sent me his picture and I fell in love with him and ended up getting that kitten. He is now 4 months old and he is huge!!! Adorable, has a great personality, very curious, he is so sociable, he feels like he needs to be part of every activity in the house. My family went through several loses and unfortunate events for the past 3 years. I felt like our house lost the joy it had. Our new kitten, we named him Nathaniel, brought it back! I 've read that maine coons normally choose a leader in the family. I was hoping to be the one but Nathaniel picked my son, Tim, he is 23. It is quite moving to watch how they interact. Nathaniel kisses him on the lips, he sleeps on his chest and when Tim is home, he never leaves his side. That unconditional love! I never had pets before and if someone would tell me that a kitten will sleep in my bed one day, I would never believe it. But our baby gets away with everything. He was well trained, found his litter as soon as we brought him home! We went to Karen's house to pick him up and we got to meet all of her wonderful members of their maine coon family. All cats came over to greet us, purring around, it was amazing. Karen's house is filled with love and care, we did not want to leave! If you are looking for maine coon, I would highly recommend this wonderful home!"

"We received an orange Maine Coon from DCFD Maine Coons. We found the process of working with Karen and Chuck very easy and professional. From communication, to Maine Coon insights, to post pick up followup, they have been great. Our new family member, Benny, is in good health and has a great temperament. I *strongly* recommend anyone considering a Maine Coon for pet or for show talk to Karen and Chuck. You will be very happy that you did."Oz - PA (2016)
"I don't really have a bucket list but if I did having a Maine coon cat or two would have been on that list. I am the type of person whom researches everything from appliances to vitamins to home alarm systems etc.. During my research for Maine coons I found Karen and Chuck's website DCFD Maine Coon Cats among many others which I WAS NOT IMPRESSED by. I got the feeling from the get go that they were the best choice. Now, I was nervous about them choosing me. In this world I think we need to follow our gutt instincts more often and I think they had a good feeling about me. I guess they did because at this moment I am laying on my bed writing this with my two absolutely beautiful brother and sister Maine Coons Eddie and Valerie who just got baths and two of my five pomeranians. Speaking of baths, I wasn't sure which soap to use, so I asked Karen this morning and got an answer right away. Any questions you have they are right there to answer them. I now understand how rough it is trying to snap a picture of a kitten but Karen made time to send pictures often of the babies at different ages. I can say this I looked forward to getting those pictures sooo much. My trip to pick them up was long, coming from CT. I was greeted with open arms and paws. I loved not only seeing Karen kissing the cats but Chuck too..lol. The best decision I made was getting two kittens at the same time. They really love each other. They just play and play, eat and sleep together.. If you want to feel good inside about choosing the best breeder, I highly recommend DCFD Maine Coon Cats. Their cats are friendly, beautiful, and well socialized."

"We found out about Chuck and Karen through another breeder since they didn't have the kitten we were hoping for. Since day one I was very pleased at how much they knew and cared about animals. We were fortunate enough to not have to wait too long for our kitten (Bruce, aka Phelps) since they just had a litter. Throughout the process Chuck reassured me of all my concerns and Karen was always able to provide great information and feedback. They are not a backyard breeder, they are always around to answer any questions and to help you even after you've picked up your kitten. The quality of their cats is magnificent, I had researched for a long time to find the perfect regal/wild looking Maine Coon with a friendly and gentle personality and that is exactly what they delivered. Their cats are beautiful and have a very European look to them which is exactly what we were hoping for. I would recommend them to anyone who is a true cat lover. "
