Welcome to Conyers Cat Maine Coons!
>>> See "AVAILABLE" page for KITTENS and available retirees <<<
Thank you for visiting the web home of Conyers Cat. Established in 2001, out program is dedicated to breeding healthy, socially well adjusted, and genetically sound Maine Coon cats. We use a number of methods to assure the health of our cats and kittens. These methods include ultrasound examination by a veterinary cardiologist for cardiac and renal disease, and using lines that are historically negative for cardiac disease. Additionally, all kittens are examined by a veterinarian prior to placement in their forever homes. Our Conyers cats are well socialized and are raised under foot and are treated as family members.
Our cattery is registered by the Cat Fancier's Association (CFA) and The International Cat Association (TICA). Our cats are shown in CFA and TICA cat shows which serves several purposes. The first is the independent judging of our cat's conformation, disposition, and general health. This ensures that we are holding to accepted standards of appearance and characteristics that define the breed. The second purpose in showing is to get the opinions of other breeders and fanciers and suggestions for our breeding program. This makes for an overall stronger cattery program. Third, it tells the breeder something of the individual cat's personality when challenged by all the sights, sounds and smells. Also, as a bonus, showing is fun!
