Sun O'er Sea Maine Coons

Health, structure, and temperament of the Maine Coon are the top priorities of
​Sun O'er Sea,
 a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvanian and Tulsa, Oklahoman Maine Coon cattery.
 


Since our beginnings in 2016, I actively screen my breeding cats for HCM (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) by an annual echocardiogram and double DNA test. My breeding cats are also negative for PK Deficiency and SMA. In addition to health, I place on personality and fit. As I work alongside wonderful breeders of Maine Coons, I am struck by their commitment to the CFA breed standard and Maine Coon excellence. I, like my network, am committed to this ideal and place the highest importance on health and temperament over other factors, resulting in stunning felines. ​Males are also tested for hips. Maine Coon kittens are raised underfoot in my home as my own beloved pets.

Our pride and joy: Maine Delite Nimue of Sun O'er Sea, pictured at 10 months, who started our Sun O'er Sea line; our line traces back to healthy American show lines where we are proud to have gotten our start. Nim's contribution to the breed lives on in her daughters and their kittens.

Please note that reputable breeders range from $2500-4500 in price; backyard breeders are currently saturating the market. Backyard breeders do not health test or know standard; they care only about $$$. Sun O'er Sea breeds for health, structure, and temperament; our kittens are priced accordingly to the investment in them. Beth will always require an interview before you are invited to work with our Maine Coon cattery. For more on cattery reputability and Sun O'er Sea's pet process, click here.

Maine Coons are known as the gentle giants of the cat world and are credited with a spectacular long hair coat, a square muzzle, and a size that wows. The Maine Coon also is known for its beauty and great temperament. No one knows from where the Maine Coon actually developed. Despite being acknowledged in the 1860s as a breed, the Maine Coons' origins are hotly debated; one story involves Viking ships. Another begins with Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution. Yet another crosses a domestic cat with a raccoon (which is the only definitively false tale of origin). The Maine Coon's origin is shrouded in mystery and sea-mist, captivating imaginations and setting fanciers on a journey to learn, appreciate, and love this special type of cat. One thing we know for sure: the Coons' history is tied to the sea.
