My Cattery is located in the thriving city of Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. ... situated along the sunny banks of the South Saskatchewan River in the south east corner of Alberta, our city is approximately 65, 000 people.
I became fascinated with the Maine Coons, also known as "Gentle Giants," when I purchased my first pet in the early 90's. Realizing what an amazing creature Johnny was, I toyed with the idea of stepping into the world of cat shows.... after all, I was positive that I had the most beautiful cat living in my home!
Since I was unsure about the 'readying' required to maintain such a beautiful and magnicificant coat for the show world, I headed west (to Calgary) to attended my very first cat show and it was here that I had the pleasure of meeting Terry & Cindy of AnTarCin Cattery. While shadowing Terry and Cindy as they bathed, dried, combed and brushed these beautiful award winning cats, they talked about their love and devotion to the Maine Coon. My mind became a sponge absorbing every word they spoke and after several hours, I departed the show building full of hopes and dreams AND dates for the next cat show...only this time I would be returning as an exhibitor!
With keeping health a top priority, reading and researching pedigrees became a favourite pastime. I became very select about where and from whom I would acquire my Toms and Queens. All my breedings felines have their hips x-rayed for hip dysplasia and now DNA tests are available to be sure their hearts are sound and free of HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy).
