Cthulu's Show Career
Sun O'er Sea Show Time!
Sun O'er Sea is an exhibiting cattery that is committed to Maine Coon excellence in health, temperament, and structure. We strive for a look that we feel best represents our beloved breed: beautiful expression, lovely ear set, a balanced rectangular body, square muzzle, and, of course, the plume tail that meets the cat's scapula. We love full muzzles and prominent lynx tips.
We show exclusively in CFA region 4, the Great Lakes Region, and follow CFA breed standard. Our Maine Coons travel frequently throughout Ohio, Michigan, New York, and our home state, Pennsylvania. You will often find us benched within our network, consisting of Majestic Luv, Waggscoons, Maine Lovers, and Maine Delite (now retired).
Nick and I love taking our kittens out beginning at four months, so you will often find us in Maine Coon kitten class. However, we respect and observe our kittens and cats' right to choose. If showing is not our cat's favorite pastime, we do not hesitate to stop our cat's show career at any point.
Showing, while indicating our cats' conformance and exceedance of breed standard, does not supercede our cats' happiness. Our cats come first and always. Some cats love the show hall. Some dislike the show hall. We do our best to make sure each of our cats is happy with their show career. We never pressure or force a cat into showing as that goes against everything we stand for. We are passionate, personable, and talkative. We welcome members of the public to approach us and talk about the Maine Coon cat, see our kittens and cats, and even follow us to rings.
If you have a question about show ribbons or why people clap and say "yaaay" when the brown and orange ribbons are hung, please ask us! We LOVE our Maine Coons and we LOVE talking about our breed and participating in the show atmosphere.
Maine Lvrs Cthulu of Sun O'er Sea (8/5/2017)
We affectionately call Cthulu our ham! He loves the showhall and thinks every toy belongs to him. He absolutely loves saying hello to everyone both cats and people alike! This amazing big boy is just finishing his kitten class and will enter Open class in September 2017 provided he still enjoys it!
Not only has Cthulu had a successful show career thus far, but he truly loves the crowd! He loves being on the judging stand and doesn't mind being examined by the judges. He is the most laid back and relaxed cat and he even slides a paw over to a neighbor to play!
