How to Identify a Purebred Maine Coon Kitten
One of the most popular cat breeds, considered one of the most beautiful cat breeds in the world, the Maine Coon kitten is one of the hardest of all breeds to train. They are extremely intelligent and playful cats. If you want to own one, here are some tips on training a Maine Coon kitten to help you get started.
The main thing you need to know about Maine Coon kittens, (and cats in general) is that they have very short fur and are very sensitive to cold temperatures. This is why you will find that Maine Coon kittens cannot be brought home the first day they come from the litter. So the first tip when it comes to training a Maine Coon kitten, is not to buy a young cat for you and your family. The kitten will not be prepared mentally to deal with the different environment of being adopted, as its parents were already born. Maine Coon breeders and veterinarians have the ability to give the kittens and cats they sell, what they call the “perfect” starter kit, which will help them adapt to the cold weather. When you choose your Maine Coon kitten breeder, you should look for someone who is willing to spend money on a young cat rather than one that comes from a litter that has already been born.
After you have chosen the right breeder for your Maine Coon kitten, you may then begin looking for purebred Maine Coon kittens, for sale. You can find many ads in newspapers, as well as online and there are many classified websites. When looking for purebred kittens for sale, you should ask to see pictures of the parents of the kitten. If possible, you should visit the homes of past buyers of these cat breeds to see how the animals handled and lived with their owners before choosing to buy a kitten from that particular owner.
The next thing you want to look for when you are trying to find purebred Maine Coon cats for sale, is that the breeder really knows his cat breed. A good breeder will not just randomly select a few cats and start selling them. He will take the time to ask the right questions about his Maine Coon cats, like how old the mother cat was when she was sired, what diet was she fed, if any medical problems have occurred and if there have been any genetic defects as well. A good breeder will be able to tell you if the kittens he is selling are purebreds, or just mixed breeds.
Most breeders who sell purebred Maine Coon cat breeds also offer health testing services. The breeder should be able to get a copy of the mother’s pedigree to check against the known mother of the litter. He should also be able to provide you with the health records for all of the cats in his breeding history, so that you can determine how healthy each of them is. If possible, he should be able to provide you with some pictures of his Maine Coon kittens, so that you can see how they have developed. He should be willing to allow you to look at the cats in question, so that you can make up your own opinion on them. You should be able to ask the breeder any other questions that you feel are important.
When learning how to spot a purebred Maine Coon kitten, it is important to remember that the purebreds do not always come from the same litter. If you are purchasing an older purebred, it is important to make sure that you are getting a kitten that is truly purebred. You should never purchase kittens that have parents of mixed bloodlines. These cats will have problems both in their health and temperament, which will be passed on to their offspring. Always ask for paperwork proving the cat or kitten’s parents were registered as purebred Maine Coon breeder when you are purchasing Maine Coon kittens, or dogs from breeders or rescue groups.
