Please contact me via the Contact Page or Maine Characters Maine Coons Facebook page if you are interested in adopting a Maine Characters kitten.
Most our kittens are reserved prior to their birth, but on the off chance any are available, they will be posted here.
Please see the ‘Adoption ‘ page for waitlist/reservation info.
Kittens will be posted for adoption on the ‘Available Kittens’ page at 7-8 weeks of age should any be available at that point, which would be unusual as most are reserved prior to that time. The total cost of a male kitten is $1,200 and the total cost of a female kitten is $1,000 with a reservation/waitlist fee of $250.00 . The remaining $950.00 (male) or $750.00 (female) is due by cash, money order or cashier's check when you pick up your new baby.
I have recently changed the reservation/waitlist process, and am now taking a limited number of deposits ahead of litters being born. My sincere hope is to keep the waitlist at a year at most, hopefully less. If I think I can’t provide your new fur-family member in less than a year, I’ll close the waitlist until I’m caught up.
All of that being said, please understand that, while I may have breeding plans, my cats may have different plans! (I’ve tried to get them to tell me exactly when they’ll be in heat and how many kittens they’ll have. Genders, markings, and colors would be helpful too, but they’re not having it. Cats can be so uncooperative 😹.) I'm happy to give you my best guess as to a timeline, but bear in mind that it's a guess.
The wait for male kittens is going to be longer, as is the wait for specific colors or markings.
All kittens, with rare exception, are sold as pets with a spay/neuter contract. CFA registration paperwork will be sent with you at the time of kitten pickup.
Kittens are ready to go to their forever homes between 12 and 16 weeks, and will have at least their 1st round of vaccines, parasite prevention medication, and a vet check.
If you would like more than one kitten, a 10% discount will be applied. Why more than one? Maine Coons are very social, and they don't do well alone for long periods.
Prior to making a deposit, please email and tell me a little about yourself and your new kitten's environment. I don't mean to pry, but I am invested in knowing our kittens are going to good homes! Before they become your babies, they have been my babies.
Please be aware that the reservation fee is non-refundable, so be sure you really want to do this! Please also take a look at the kitten contractprior to reserving a kitten so there are no surprises. PayPal is preferred for deposits (see the bottom of this page for payment.)
