Thunderpaws Maine Coon Cats      






                                          Some of Our Babies All Grown Up!!!





 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.

                   

                                  

                    

                                                                  Kittens:

                           These pretty babies are tentatively all spoken for
                                                    
     I know that finding a Maine Coon kitten can sometimes take a while, but please
be patient, we raise only a few at a time, insuring lots of attention and socializing for each baby.   Thank you for your interest and check in often.

TO RESERVE A KITTEN:
  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.
