Welcome to Coonificent! We are a small Maine Coon cattery located in central Connecticut. We fell in love with adopted with this gentle, intelligent & beautiful breed when we adopted our first Maine Coon cat in the late 1990's, and have been enjoying their company ever since. Our breeding program was started in 2005 and we were very fortunate to be mentored and supported by some very special Maine Coon breeder friends including Patty Koo of Coonoak, Rae Sammis of Mainelyclassic, David Billingsley of Cloistercoon, Jean Thompson & Jennifer Sable of Broadsway, Doris Blakesley of Dorwill, Debbie & Alex McKniff of Blazin Arrow, and Rita, Kim & Kelly Berg of Kelimcoons. Their guidance, friendship, trust, good humor, and support have been the basis for our ongoing enjoyment of the cat fancy!

Coonificent's breeding program is focused on health, temperament and the development of our preferred conformation type.  While the breed is known for their gentle, intelligent, easy going, comical & 'dog-like' personalities, we believe the socialization process is critical to facilitating these traits. Our Maine Coons are very well socialized, happily coexisting with our canine and human family. We also have two Leonbergers, the 'Gentle Giants' of the dog world. Our kittens are raised in our home, receiving the diverse interactions, experiences and play necessary to prepare them for a smooth adjustment to their new homes and families.

We focus on minimizing the potential health risks that can affect all pedigreed animals, and routinely screen for specific diseases such as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) and hip dysplasia through DNA testing, echocardiography and radiographic imaging.

Our cattery is in our home in Glastonbury, CT . We make appointments with people who are seriously looking to purchase a Maine Coon Cat or Kitten in the near future and who are interested in the kittens and/or cats that we currently have available. You may reach us by email at Coonificent@cox.net, Another great option for meeting our beautiful Maine Coons (and us of course), is by attending one of the TICA cat shows in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
