Text Box: Welcome to RoyalLions, home of four INTERNATIONAL WINNERS: RoyalLions “Count Chocula”, who was the No. 1 MAINE COON KITTEN IN THE WORLD in 2017, RoyalLions “Count Blackula”, RoyalLions “Lunar Eclipse of MTNest, and  Cloistercoon “Graymoor” of RoyalLions. We have also produced six REGIONAL WINNERS and numerous Supreme Grand Champions and Grands despite being highly restrictive in the placement of breeding cats due to possible mistreatment or exploitation of the breed.  The title “International Winner” is the highest distinction awarded to a cat in The International Cat Association (TICA). TICA is one of the most competitive cat associations worldwide as the largest pedigree cat registry so attainment to this level is often extremely difficult and highly competitive. Showing is an essential tool to objectively evaluate our cats in terms of validating breed conformation and stable dispositions. More important than show wins, is the personal philosophy and ethics behind a cattery centered around quality of life. We are a true low volume “in-home” cattery focused on quality  and excellence in socialization with a deep concern for improving the health by staying abreast of current research, using modern testing methods in screening parents while retaining highly reputable breeding lines from strong pedigrees that have solid health histories. 

We believe the Maine Coon is "the king" of all pedigree cats, not just in beauty and stature but in companionship and the potential of giving back. Universally known as the "gentle giant", the Maine Coon out sizes many small-medium dogs being the largest domestic cat breed in the world! Originating in the state of Maine, the Maine Coon is America's only true native breed and the oldest show breed in North America. Lynx-like tufted ears and paws, prominent lion type muzzles and elegant ruffs, easy rugged coats in a variety of astounding colors, magnificent tails; an exclusive signature of their breed, and a distinctive trill is what  fascinates  those who admire them. The Maine Coon’s  gregarious "dog-like" nature, one of loyalty and affection, with the known capability of getting along with children and other pets is what captivate the hearts of those who share their lives with one! They will fascinate you with  amusing antics and over time become very child-like. Maine Coons will eagerly greet you at your arrival and miss you while your away. Some can even be trained to walk on a leash and fetch a ball. Most Maine Coons will easily travel if they are exposed to it early. Having the unique character of being extremely interactive and people orientated, Maine Coons make perfect fur children that absolutely complete a home and serve as the ideal companion! Our kitten families have shared these sentiments: “Our house is now a home. He has  produced an indescribable joy! What did we ever do without her? She was the missing piece to our family. When I suddenly lost my husband, it was my Maine Coon girls who gave me the will to get up in the morning and begin a new day. This is the most amazing and intelligent breed we have ever owned. My Maine Coon has brought me much companionship during a difficult time in my life. I can’t wait to get home to see her. I now have a reason to go on, I am needed! I can’t imagine living without one. My  four Maine Coons gave me so much comfort during my illness. When I lost my mother, she filled such a huge void in my heart, I am never alone now. Our family is now complete!”  These are powerful reactions to the greatest  breed in the world and why we give up space in our home, days off, and family vacations. The natural capacity the Maine Coon has towards enriching lives and healing hearts is what motivates us to produce highly sociable pets. 

It’s our privilege to share this  intimate breed with our special families who find their way to us.

Why A Pedigree Maine Coon? Some will argue why people should not purchase a cat, that there are too many homeless cats and crowded shelters. Breeders are not the cause for stray cats. Most breeders  support at least several rescues and often donate to this cause. Cat shows support rescues by allowing them to have adoption booths . Stray cats are the result of irresponsible, ignorant, and uncaring people who refuse to neuter and spay or leave their pets behind. The ratio between pedigree cats and domestic cats is huge with domestic cats greatly exceeding pedigrees . Controlling the homeless pet population starts with responsible pet ownership and a commitment to the pet during it’s lifetime not only when times are good. Most breeders place kittens in homes they have comprehensively screened and ensure neutering and spaying.

 

Just as some people admire and respect certain dog breeds, we (and our new families) appreciate the Maine Coon Cat breed and all it has to offer in unmatched companionship and beauty. The Maine Coon is also very much an American icon, worthy of preservation, it’s heritage beginning in the  rugged woods of New England, in fact, it’s the only true native breed to America! Further, the Maine Coon is the State Animal for Maine. Many love the German Shepherd breed and other fine pedigree dogs for their dependability, intelligence, and attractiveness...the same is felt by those who treasure certain cat breeds. Maine Coon owners are guaranteed an outstanding family pet with desired features which meet the breed standard, one with a disposition and background the breeder can account for including health and many have less vet bills incurred trying to guess and test for problems or hidden health issues they may face with a stray. Most reputable breeders have made the financial investment  ahead of time in testing and screening their breeding cats and providing quality health care to kittens prior to placement, so often the money spent on a pedigree may be less. We say, keep adopting rescues of course, but respect those who want to add a very special breed to their family. The Maine Coon was labeled “The Perfect Family Pet”  and “the Gentle Giant” by Cat Fancy magazine for a very good reason!  Just see below!
