To start, we want to share with you that if you are seeking a companion for your life, adopting a stray is the way to go!

However, if you are absolutely set on a specific breed for whatever reason, we strongly urge you to NOT purchase this breed from a pet store, a backyard breeder, or a non-registered breeder – do your research to find a reputable, ethical, and responsible registered breeder.

The business models of backyard breeders and pet stores are extremely cruel.

Having discussed the difference between a responsible breeder and a backyard breeder, we can tell you why the kitten you are trying to adopt from us has an adoption fee.

Raising a Kitten at South Maine Coons Cattery Expense Sheet

*This list does not include expenses for furnishing the cattery (cat trees, cat beds, toys, litter boxes, toiletries), socializing and training the kittens, bathing, caring for each of them and labor.

Having a passion for the breed and breeding Maine Coons, while being ethical and responsible about it, will not generate any profit for us. It will, however help us to provide our kittens and cats the best quality of life and necessities so that we can continue producing healthy, docile and well- tempered kittens.

The Adoption Fee of the kitten goes for the following:

  • A pedigreed / fully registered kitten.
  • The kitten will come with a Health Passport
  • An up-to-date, vaccinated, dewormed, and healthy kitten.
  • A kitten raised with a loving temper.
  • A well socialized and adjusted kitten.
  • A kitten out of Pedigreed Parents, Health Tested, without genetic disorders.
  • A microchipped kitten.
  • Kitten Contract for Adoption.
  • Kitten Bag of Goodies along with a Maine Coon Guide.

While we want to emphasize that we are very particular about our kittens and the way they are raised, which cats we choose for our breeding program, our breeding program itself, and all we do in this hobby; it takes a lot of time, patience, responsibility and a lot of expenses.

Taking care of kittens and cats requires a great deal of love. They are our children and we treat them as such, and we expect you to do the same. We also want you to know that we request news, pictures and videos very often as we love to see our kittens grow in their forever homes.
