I love, raise, show and breed healthy, sweet, large and beautiful Maine Coon Cats who have been screened for healthy hearts and hips, as well as those to whom they are bred, to ensure I produce the healthiest cats possible. Our kittens go to approved, indoor only homes and with a no-declaw agreement. No cat in my home is caged, and kittens are all raised underfoot. This is a small cattery, with only 2-3 females and have only 2-3 litters per year to ensure each kitten and cat in my home gets ample attention, the highest quality of veterinarian care and nutrition. I breed these wonderful cats to produce beautiful, healthy and sweet "gentle giants" for my own home-based breeding program and also in hopes of providing loving companions for other cat lovers as well. We show exclusively in TICA, but our cats’ ancestors are winners in both TICA and CFA. All breeding cats screened for cardiomyopathy (prior to breeding & then annually), hip dysplasia, and are negative for the one known DNA mutation associated with HCM, SMA & PK Deficiency. All our kittens are microchipped prior to leaving our home and come with our extensive health guarantee and written contract. They are also vaccinated, dewormed and tested negative for FeLV/FIV.
Liz has the best Maine coons. They have a wonderful temperament and are raised with love.
Two weeks ago I adopted the most lovely female kitten from Liz at Chemicoons. My husband and I could not be more thrilled with this little girl. She is affectionate, confident, strong, and absolutely beautiful, many thanks to Liz's superior care. What's more, our kitten came with a binder filled with information so that we had all the details we could possibly need to make a smooth transition to our home. My vet is so impressed, and so am I. I cannot over-recommend Chemicoons. You will be delighted with the Maine Coon who joins your family!
When I was trying to decide on a Maine Coon Breeder I attended a cat show in Wisconsin. I heard the same thing over and over, 'Only talk to Liz Hansen" "Get on her waiting list for a kitten" I live in Chicago. I was in contact with Liz last fall and we devised a plan for adopting one of her spring kittens this year. Liz was professional, warm and a great communicator during the whole process. We know adore our Maine Coon kitten, Fezzik. We named him after Andre the Giant's character in the Princess Bride. He instantly acclimated to our home and 3 other cats. He is as stunning as he is steady. He loves everyone who comes through our door. Liz encouraged me to vist her cats and kittens. Her love of this breed is evident in all she does. She is a gift to the Feline Community.
We have two Maine Coons from Liz. They are a joy to have in our home, both are females, one is 10 month old, the other 14 months old, they got along with our other cats right away. The coonies are very entertaining, loving and really enjoy being the center of attention. I liked the fact that Liz has her cats tested for heart and hip disease and both kids have a clean bill of health. In my opinion Liz is best breeder.
Liz Hansen truly is the best!! She is everything I was looking for in a breeder, and more. Unable to find the right breeder, I decided to attend a cat show in Cleburne, TX, where we had the good fortune of meeting Liz and her amazing boy Willie. I was looking for a responsible breeder committed to the health, happiness and wellbeing of the Maine Coons. After visiting Chemicoons website I knew we found a very special breeder. The next day we returned to the cat show & put our name on the waiting list. I met Liz in June 2014 and our first boy, Prince Harry, aka Casper, arrived on New Years Eve and our second boy Boo, arrived January 18, 2015. I was willing to wait for a Chemicoons kitten because of her breeding program. She is passionate about showing her world class Chemicoons, which is her primary purpose for breeding. To ensure the health and longevity of her Chemicoons she goes above and beyond what is required of a breeder. She does extensive testing using the top specialists in the country and consults with the world's leading feline DNA specialist. I was not looking for a show cat, but a healthy Maine Coon kitten that would be loved for many years. After going through the heartache of losing my first Maine Coon due to irresponsible breeding, I was thrilled to find Liz. Seeing how happy our boys are together confirms getting two was the right decision. They are beautiful, sweet, loving and hilarious!! My Vet was so impressed with our Chemicoon boys & Liz, she now has one of her own. I am so appreciative to Liz for her commitment & contributions to the Maine Coon Breed. She sets the standard of excellence for other breeders to follow. Not only do we have two amazing Chemicoon boys, we have a new friend!!
I got two kittens from Chemicoons this summer. They are everything I wanted: beautiful, affectionate, energetic and healthy. They are very confident and friendly with strangers, because Liz works to socialize them starting very young. It is very refreshing to have kittens that run to greet me, even when I bring in a friend to show them off. In addition, they have done well adjusting to my older, somewhat shy and grumpy Maine coon. They have surprisingly left him alone to get comfortable at his speed. I expect being raised with a number of adult cats, they learned a bit of "respect for the elders" that kittens raised without other adults around don't always have. They are adorable and very high energy. Working with Liz was a pleasure. Highly recommended.
I have a 6 month old Maine Coon I purchased from Liz. I am comforted by the extensive testing she does on her animals, raises them in a small loving environment , and truly cares who she places them with. She and my 1 year old Maine Coon are the best of pals!
