So who are we....
We are Amanda and Russ and
we've been breeding Maine Coons on a small scale since 2006. We currently have three
queens, Molly (Molly by Starlight), Poppy (Tropical Sunrise) and Ruby (Sunset Ruby). We're
based in Kettering, Northamptonshire and all our cats, who you can see
on the other pages of this website, live with us in the house - no pens
or separate accommodation - they are all our pets. It's a madhouse some
times but we like it that way!
Our interest in Maine Coons started many years ago when we bought a book about cats and read about this particular breed. We said then that if we found ourselves in a position to be able to give a cat the care and attention it deserved, that's what we would have. In 2003 that dream came true. Through a number of coincidences we were put in touch with Jean and Ron Brown at Lunaris and they were good enough to sell us our first Maine, a handsome silver red shaded male neuter, Lunaris Doodle Dandy, brother to FIFe European Champion Lunaris Peg of my Heart. Dude as he became affectionately known was soon followed by Lunaris Sonny's Boy (Sonny), now a FIFe Supreme Premier, and Lunaris Tessa Rose who became our first queen.
Tess had her first litter in April 2006 and from that litter we kept Lunaris Misty Mountain (a FIFe Champion), known as Sweetpea, as a breeding queen. At the end of January 2007 Tess had another litter from which we kept Mistymaine Sweet Dreams (Dino), who became our first Mistymaine FIFe Supreme Premier. Tess has now been neutered and is also a FIFe Supreme Premier. Misty Mountain produced her one and only litter just before Christmas 2008. She only had one kitten, Jack, but he was well worth the wait. Sadly Sweetpea left us in September 2014.
We then had Lunaris Chiquitita or Chi as she's known. A gorgeous black mackerel tabby with white with the most amazing eyes she was intended as a queen but she never did like the boys so rather than risk her health she has also been neutered and is now a FIFe Premier.
Amber had her first litter in June 2012. We kept Mistymaine Amarillo Starlight (Amy) and Mistymaine Heart of Eternity (Jess) as breeding queens. She had a further litter in January 2013. Mistymaine Star Sapphire aka Boris from that litter was sold but he came back to us when he was 10 months old and is now one of the characters of the Mistymaine household. He's now started at the shows and is already a FIFe Premier.
Towards the latter part of 2013, Amy, Jess and Amber all had litters within weeks of each other. We kept Mistymaine Moonshadow and Mistymaine Molly by Starlight from Amy's litter. Little did we know how 2013 would end and 2014 would start. We lost Amy, Jess and Dino within weeks of each other. A difficult time in the Mistymaine house. Amber has since had another litter and Molly is starting on her career as a mum.
In 2015 Amber developed a lump on her tummy, which turned out to be benign, but meant she had to be speyed as the operation left her unable to cope with the rigours of pregnancy in the future.
So now we have Molly, Poppy and Ruby as our current queens.
