Breeding-goals Maine Coons:

good health, excellent temperament, a sturdy,  moderate type, using outcross breeding (click) to widen up the genepool. I consider myself very lucky with the cats I have: they all have lovely dispositions. I would like other cat owners to share in my joy and breed kittens/cats that give their owners a similar joy. Besides that I would like to breed as much white and red (in all it's variations) as possible. Sorry, I am crazy about those colours!!

To try and reach my goals;

  • I read lots of literature, books as well as internet-information,

  • make use of "outcross"-breeding: using  unrelated pedigrees with a higher "new foundation" percentage,

  • I attend and visit several shows,

  • I visit or otherwise contact breeders and ask lots of questions,

  • I attend workshops, organised bij Felikat and the RMC, on everything that has to do with breeding, health, cat behavoir, etc.

  • I attended workshops by Lorraine Shelton in the Netherlands,

  • I follow online webinars by the Winn Feline foundation on dna-research and the latest dna findings

  • I attended a workshop on cat-behavior by Vicky Halls

  • I have our breedingcats checked for PKD, HCM (ultrasound), Felv/Fiv,  SMA (dna) Patellar Luxation and hip-dysplasia.

 

Our cats are not caged: they are our housemates!

They share the house with us and have free access to our patio.

Boonland

Not everyone might know the meaning of the word Boon. 

It is:  blessing or gift. My husband and my cats definately are a blessing and a gift to me.

Although the word isn't  used a lot,

I found its meaning very to the point and remarkably similar to Coon.

On top of that my familyname is Boonen (the Dutch pronunciation is Bhoanun)
