We are so thankful for finding Karon! She is nothing short of professional and a wonderful caretaker for all of her beautiful cats. We brought home Spartak (nicknamed Captain) and he is such a lovebug. He has made our little family whole. Karon made this all possible with her constant communication, her cat/kitten education and her commitment to finding us a perfect fit.
My Maine Coon kitten is now 6 months old. I purchased him from Karon Hansberger, the owner of Reigning Cats. When my son and I went to pick him up, Karon told us what to get in order to make caring for him easier, such as a great cat litter box. She had a written list prior to our picking him up of things the cat would need. She also had a huge goody bag filled with toys and treats and food. I named him, Mel, after my favorite place to eat. I've had cats all of my life until 2006. I haven't had any since then because my wife hated my last cat. I have 3 Cocker Spaniels so I researched cats that get along well with dogs and I came up with the Maine Coon. I then researched Maine Coon breeders and was referred to Karon. I never told my wife but I did tell one of her coworkers who mistakenly asked her if I had my new cat yet. She called me up and was screaming that I never told her. I told her that I did tell her and that she had said ok. She must not have remembered! I picked up my Mel from Karon a week later. My daughter had picked him out a couple of weeks prior. He's a red tabby color, again a first for me. The whole family fell in love with him, especially my wife. Mel is the friendliest cat. He loves the dogs and they love him, from day one! ! can't stress enough his personality and temperament ! He gets along with all people, the girls at the veterinary office love him! He's playful and loyal. He lays with me in my recliner at night and sleeps with me. I'm so glad he's an addition to my family. Thank you Karon!
Best experience purchasing my beautiful Maine Coon Gracie! Sweetest kitty ever, you can tell she was very loved and socialized well with both people and other pet's . Thank you again Reigning Cats. It was a pleasure doing business with you and highly recommend you to others.
Ten years ago, I lost my beloved Sacha, a maine coon, who was 18 years old. I was devastated. Somehow, I found Reigning Cats and met Coco, then an imperious five week old kitten. She chose me but I was so happy to have found her breeder. If you did not know it was a cattery, you would not have guessed. The house was immaculate and the cat "wing" was everything a feline (or human) could want. Clean, with lots of toys and places to hide and sleep. About six weeks later, young Coco came home with me with a "starter" package of food, toys and a laser pointer. Love makes a big difference in a young animal's life and Coco got the best possible start. I'd absolutely choose Reigning Cats for my next generation of kittens.
Beautiful cats, adorable kittens. Very pleased and impressed with Reigning Cats. A lovely home with an assortment of occupants, the love Karon has for her animals and the care they are given is very obvious. My wife and I went there thinking to get Maine Coon but we were so impressed with Karon's Siberian "greeters", we reserved a kit from her newborn Siberian litter. We have had our kitten (Eliot) for three weeks and we are so very pleased. He was so well socialized that there was no adjustment period. He is such a quick study, and so curious. He gets into everything, never shies (even when he's being scolded), greets everyone including strangers and gives kisses. I would highly recommend Reigning Cats if you are looking for a wonderful companion. Karon is very responsive and a good communicator.
Love our cat. She is a beauty, and very playful. Follows my husband everywhere. Always wants to be right where we are. Very happy with Reigning Cats.
I purchased a 3 year old, neutered Siberian cat from Reigning Cats, and I could not be more thrilled with our new addition. From the beginning, Reigning Cats was thorough and quick to respond to any questions I may have. The home where our cat was living was clean, and all pets in the home (not just the cat I was adopting) were healthy, friendly and roaming underfoot. The cat was vet checked with a clean bill of health prior to my arrival and paperwork reflecting past medical history was provided for my own records. Within days of being in our home, the cat has already warmed up to all members of our household, including our dogs. He is incredibly outgoing and has even formed a special bond with my 7 year old daughter, sleeping in her bed with her every night. I cannot say enough good things about this breeder and the cats she produces. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to add a healthy, sweet, outgoing cat or kitten into their home.
It was an absolute pleasure to purchase a healthy, beautiful kitten for a very reasonable price.
My big boy Cedric is the apple of our eyes. Karon is an experienced breeder and it shows. Cedric is a healthy strong cat with a wonderful personality. He is intelligent, sweet and self-assured. He dominates his domain and nothing scares him (except the vet). Karon loves her kittens - I was touched when she parted with Cedric. She whispered sweet nothings in his ear, promising he would be happy in Canada and tearfully handed him over to us. I could tell she loved him and it was difficult parting. I have recommended Reigning Cats to friends and continue to do so. I still keep in touch with Karon and she appreciates pictures and news of her kitten. She is after all his mommy Karon!
I adopted my Maine Coon boy from Reigning Cats in March of this year. I had been searching for a Maine Coon to join my family, and there were not a lot of options in Arizona where I live. I found Reigning Cats via a Google search for Maine Coon breeders in Florida, and they also happened to be close to my home town in Florida. My boy, Ringo Kidd is a two year old that was retiring from breeding. He looked beautiful in the photos, and a cat past the kitten stage appealed to me, so I reached out to Karon with Reigning Cats about making him part of my family. This is the first time every working with a breeder, and I of course had tons of questions. Karon was very patient with me, and answered every one of my questions and emails very quickly. The contract is very straight forward. Reigning Cats also provides a ton of information on their site on how to care for your new cat. Ringo came fully vetted. He had a DNA medical report included with the contract. He was checked out by my old vet in Florida and everyone there was impressed with him. Karon continues to answer any questions that pop up on my end and to see how Ringo is doing. The communication has been excellent! My mom picked Ringo up and he stayed with her for three weeks, before I was able to fly to Florida to get him. My parents, and the many visitors they had during that time all fell in love with Ringo. My parents are looking to get their own Maine Coon from Reigning Cats sometime in the near future. Ringo is such a sweet boy. I could not be happier. Everyone that meets him loves him. He is just so cute. He loves to play, especially with a chirping mouse tethered to a stick. Boy can he get some air pouncing for this mouse. He gets along well with my other cats and my stepdaughters. He is so social and loves to make new friends. He walks me down the stairs every morning to send me off to work. He is a curious boy and some of his chirps and warbles sound like a question. He has a beautiful coat and is a big handsome boy. When I am ready to add a new addition to my family, I would look to Reigning Cats for sure.
Bought Maine Coone kitten from Karon @ Reigining Cats in 2011. We had lost our 16 year Maine Coone December 2010. Karon helped us pick out a kitten that would match our needs because we had a 16 year old Burmese that needed a companion. Trixie is a healthy large female Maine Coone. Karon made us feel welcome in her home when we picked Trixie up. We met her father Titan which was nice to see how wonderful how her older cats a treated. Karon and I are in touch often regarding Trixie's life. I recommend her as breeder that cares.
Reigning Cats is an excellent breeder. Our boy, Titan, is a gorgeous and very large tabby (over 17 pounds and he's not fat - he's tall) and he is a total sweetheart! He loves to give hugs and cuddle with us. Moreover, Titan is very healthy and has a great personality. Reigning Cats loves her cats and kittens and takes exceptional care of them. Her home is immaculate and she takes the time to properly socialize them. She is always willing to answer any questions and likes to keep in touch. I still send pictures of Titan to her and she is always thrilled to receive them. I highly recommend this breeder.
We had a wonderful experience in choosing our new Siberian kitten with Reigning Cats. Karon was very easy to communication with and very accommodating to meet us at a convenient location during our trip. She provided us with lots of loving goodies that demonstrated the care that RC has for their kittens. If our kitten's personality and upbeat behavior are any indication of the care and affection these kittens receive prior to purchase, I can say hands down it is positive.
Reigning Cats produces champion Maine Coons and Siberians who have the sweetest, most intelligent personalities. I feel fortunate to by owned by one their Maine Coons. The cattery is clean, professional, and home-like.
I had tried contacting many Maine Coon breeders and catteries, and luckily, Reigning Cats had a litter! I was able to pick out my beautiful red baby, and keep up with.his early life, as I was sent photos and little updates on him as I waited the 3 mos before I could pick him up. When I did finally pick him up, he had a small, minor cough. I would have lost money changing my flight, so I brought him home as planned (he's in perfect health now!). As an individual, he's perfect - inquisitive, intelligent, playful, loving. My vet assures me that, given the size of his paws & ears, he will be enormous when fully grown... can't wait! I'm thankful for him, and Reigning Cats, nearly every day!
We had a great experience with this breeder. We love our cat. She is beautiful and full of personality. We plan to go back and get another one soon. She need a friend.
Reigning Cats was a great breeder to work with! We got two beautiful Maine Coon kittens from this breeder and they are just so sweet. Karon was quick to respond to emails and kept us updated about the kittens vet visits and also sent photos while we waited for them to grow. The cats are beautiful. 14 weeks old and already such big, loving babies. Thank you, Reigning Cats!!
We have gotten kittens from Karon at Reigning Cats twice, both Maine Coons. These are the most wonderful, loving cats. The whole transaction was great, Karon really cares about the cats and who she places them with. She makes sure to give out information, and follows up to make sure they are spayed or neutered. She sends a few things home with the kitten, which is nice. I friended her on Facebook and she has been sure to follow photos and videos of the kittens into and throughout their adult life. I would get another from her, and highly recommend her.
