FOUNDATION BREEDING NEWS
.......until the cats start playing with the plan, of course!
Some of my kitten owners passionately support Maine Coon foundation breeding. Pet kittens from an early foundation project will be sold for a reduced price but will receive ACA or CFF registration papers. They come with the same care, certified health guarantee and sales contract as my regular Maine Coon kittens. They will have superb temperament and quite nice quality, just not yet the fully the desired size and type.
Pet Kitten Prices:
F2, full/part foundation PET kittens will be adopted out for a small fee.
F3, part foundation PET kitten: starting at $ 1200
F4, part foundation PET kitten: starting at $ 1800.
2022 NEWS: After a couple of years of intense testing and careful selection, my program has now shrunk to a bare 2-3 heads, out of an original group of 11 prospective foundation cats. All part foundation kittens are now in pet homes, except the two offspring girls Coywolf and Coyote III that I retained for breeding. I still have a few full foundation cats living with family and might draw offspring from them later on. 2023 will be the year where a very small number of F3 or F4 kittens from two of the lines might be strategically placed with a couple of select breeder colleagues who faithfully test for HCM/PKD, by echocardiogram and also for HD or with one of my mentoree (under my close supervision). Some of the other lines are being held back for another year or two.
Planned for 2023:
1. Coywolf x Reuben
2. Coyote III x AtaKan
Coywolf/ Coyote III x F2 Foundation male (???)
The breedings to Reuben and AtaKan will create large, quality F4 kittens while breed numbers can be kept low. Please note that I prefer to partially remain in my own parameters with the older, proven Pb/MW pedigrees, while adding brand new blood. All or most Poly kittens will have the Masterweaver Poly foot.
Here is the F4 pedigree with the girls x Reuben (note this pedigree might currently match North American pedigrees better for outcross):

My F2 girl Coyote has now been spayed and was placed in a pet home in Winnipeg where her routine HCM testing can be continued.
F4 PART FOUNDATION LITTER BORN!
Dorcassa had two litters in 2022 and is now retired. Her first litter of 3 healthy kittens from Baluga this spring. Pictures below. All three went as pets. I re-bred Dorcassa to the same male, in order to hopefully keep a white daughter for breeding and to share one with a colleague. Her second litter consists of 7 healthy babies, among them 5 white girls. Dorcassa is F3 foundation bred and has been promised to a pet home for early retirement. Stay tuned!
Here are the three babies from Dorcassa’s spring litter:

Below is a gallery of an F3 litter out of Coyote and Roschan.
These babies are F3 and 75 % new, Canadian, Polydactyl foundation, mixed with some of my very favourite, 3rd wave, Canadian/Maine/Michigan foundation. The boy is in a pet home, the girls are both staying here.
NOTE THAT ONE OF THESE KITTENS ARE AVAILABLE!
