Thunderpaws Maine Coon Cats      


 Welcome to

Thunderpaw's Kitten Page

I would like to thank everyone for their interest in our beautiful kittens.  We have been raising Maine Coon kittens since 1985, and the volume of inquiries has been so overwhelming that I created this page to make sure everyone has access to instant updates.  Please check back often for updates on current litters.




                                                Reno:  Red Tabby Male

                             "Want to go steady?"   Reno is an exceptionally large kitten born April 11 ,2017.    Now at nine months he is a great loving armful.   He is already neutered, fully vaccinated, vet checked, tested negative for Felv & FIP and comes from parents who are DNA negative for the HCM gene.  He gets along with other cats and even cuddles and cares for small baby kittens.  CFF registered, Reno has tons of that special Coon Cat personality.    (Oh, and you can expect him go get quite a bit bigger)  Adoption fee: $1200.


 Red Classic Tabby Male
There ought to be a law against this guy!
Off the scale for cuteness and squiggly ,squirmy ,snuggly loving.
The only trouble is: he won't sit up so I can take his picture.  The minute
I touch him, he rolls on his back, knits in the air, knits on my face,
purrs his head off and squirms around till he falls on the floor.
  Extremely loving and engaging!  CFF registered,
vaccinated, box trained.
Adoption fee: $1200

Here are several more successful photos:


This photo shoot included 78 photos!
There were many more "fails" than successes.
Here are a few "Dexter Photo Fails":

You've heard the phrase: Crazy Cat Lady?
Well, we got that way by trying to photograph kittens! :-D

  If you want to reserve a particular kitten we ask   for a $200.00 NONREFUNDABLE deposit. 
send to:  Donna Chase180 Siberia Road, Stacyville, ME 04777

The deposit is applied toward the purchase price.
The kitten price includes registration, early vaccinations, veterinary wellness exam, health records and a kitten starter kit, plus delivery to
southern Maine.  
 Kittens are subject to Maine's state sales tax and this is included in the price for your convenience.

Kittens are sold as companion/pets and must be neutered.

How our cats live: 
Everyone wants to know how their kitten spent it's first weeks. For several reasons , including a very busy farm schedule, plus the health and serenity of our kittens, their mommas, and myself, we DO NOT allow visitors .  But so you can see what home life is like for your kitten while it is here I have included the following photos:

Beginning November 18, 2013, I will be joining a very large number of breeders across the U.S. in no longer shipping pets. Due to a change in Department of Agriculture regulations for pet breeders that the USDA itself has interpreted in contradictory ways, it is impossible for most persons who sell pets to know whether it is legal to ship a pet that the buyer has not seen in person. Violations of this rule carry severe penalties. For our safety, ALL sales must take place face to face.  This ruling is going to seriously curtail the choice of those wishing to buy the pet of their choice unless you are willing to travel to your breeder of choice regardless of distance. As written this will also affect service animals being made available to those in need.  While we do understand the need to stop those who don't properly care for their animals, and who knowingly sell sick kittens and puppies, we already have existing state and federal laws for those issues.  If you would like to help us fight this bad choice of regulation policy, please  contact me or your breeder of choice to see what you can do to help. It is YOUR right to be able to buy a cat or kitten from whoever you choose and to pick it up personally or have your cat or kitten shipped to you or to meet your breeder at a mutually agreed upon place to save you travel and expense. However, you only have that right if it remains OUR right to offer those choices.
