A: Males average around 14-25 lbs. Neutered cats will get bigger usually. Females can get as large as 14-16 lbs. A cat in breeding mode will drop their beautiful coat and stay slim & trim. The male will get what is known as stud tail, and go from a huge racoon-looking tail to a skinny tail. Maine Coons are still growing until 5 years of age!
A: Fill out and submit the signed Kitten Contract and deposit. Deposits are $1,000 and can be paid via Zelle. Deposits page to place your deposit to join the Reservation List. If you are getting multiple kittens please do separate contracts and one deposit for each kitten. If you choose to pay extra on the deposit it will just be added and deducted from the total price of the kitten. The Kitten Contract is on the top left of the website and on the Available Kittens page. Fill out as much preference as you can but don't worry if you change your mind later on- it is just for reference and no matter what we will notify you of every litter. You are added to the Reservation List in the same order that we receive deposits. So, if there are 2 deposits before you and none are being kept for breeding, you would have the third pick. If you do not get a kitten that you wanted from that litter, you would be notified of the next litter born. Litters are emailed at 4 weeks of age to the Reservation List. Deposits are nonrefundable, but never expire. You can feel free to wait until you find "the one" (or two!) that is perfect for you.
A: We will ship two kittens for the price of one if shipped at the same time because we feel strongly about animals having other animal friends. Shipping costs plus final balance are due 2 weeks prior to the date your kitten(s) can be shipped. We have to coordinate with the airlines and veterinarians for certificates so the flight must be paid for in that time frame. Most airlines have restrictions based on ground temperature when shipping animals in cargo. It must be below 85 degrees Fahrenheit and above 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Kittens must be at least 15 weeks to fly. Kittens can fly into any major airport that accepts Delta.
A: Health Certificate, Maine Coon Guide Booklet, Royal Canin Kitten Food Sample, small blanket from the mother cat to take the mother cat's scent with her to help adjust to new home. After Colossal Cats receives proof of being neutered or spayed, customer will receive CFA registration papers. You can also purchase a pedigree from CFA.
A: Your kitten will be eating Royal Canin kitten food. You will receive a sample of the food with your Kitten Package. Our adults eat Royal Canin Maine Coon dry food. Royal Canin also does wet food, if you prefer it. With any diet change, please do so SLOWLY so that their bodies can adjust. The main thing is to pay attention to the needs of the cat.
Maine Coons are the largest domestic breed of cats. These gentle giants are known for their wild look, intelligence and sweet playful personalities. Our Maine Coon Cats are from world winning catteries, from both here in the U.S. and imported from Europe’s finest champions.
