TUFTSCOONS - NOTICE: JUNE 4
NEW INQUIRIES ARE CLOSED - HERE'S WHY:

If you've visited our Tuftscoons Maine Coons website recently you already know that we are a very small in-home cattery.  These days, new inquiries have become overwhelming.  While flattering that so many people daily reach out to us for their new family addition, we have only a few queens in our breeding program per year.  It's a disappointment for anyone to be told the wait is years but that is where we are today.  If we have spoken to you or been messaging already, please continue to watch our Facebook page for the upcoming litters we anticipate this year and next.   New inquiries MUST for now be referred to either:
CANADA: Maine Coons Canada - on Facebook.  This site has a Canada-wide breeder list for research and review.
UNITED STATES: Syracoon at www.syracoon.com in Syracuse, NY or Willabelle in Ohio at www.willabelle.com.  I personally have dealt with and recommend these catteries.  ALL NEW INQUIRIES ARE ON HOLD.  No personal responses will be sent.  We apologize sincerely but we just cannot keep up with the extreme volume of interest.  Thank you for your understanding.
--------------
We continue to encourage those who have a Tuftscoons kitten or cat to post photos and comments on our Facebook page.  We love seeing the joy they bring to your families.

Our beautiful Maine Coon cats are more than just pets, they’re family.

Text - About Us

Tuftscoons is a small European Maine Coon cattery based two (2) hours east of Toronto, Ontario.
Our cats are family raised in our loving home.

Text - About Our Breed

Maine Coons are known as the “gentle giants” of the domesticated cat world.  Possessing above-average intelligence makes them relatively easy to train.  They are known for being loyal to their family and cautious, but not mean around strangers.  These cats are independent and not clingy.

The Maine Coon is generally not known for being a “lap cat” but they do love to be near their family, often snuggling up close to them.  Their gentle disposition makes the breed relaxed around dogs, other cats and children.

They're playful throughout their lives, with males and females being equally affectionate.  Many Maine Coons have a fascination with water and some people theorize that this personality trait comes from the cats ancestors, who were aboard ships for much of their lives.

Maine Coons are known for being very vocal cats and their frequent chattering, chirping, “talking” (especially “talking back” to their owners), and making other vocalizations.
