Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, TICA cat shows have been severely limited. As the pandemic begins to fade, we assume more traditional shows will start up again.  Standby for details as they emerge.  Thanks!

Welcome to our brand new blog!

I have a passion for all animals since I was a little kid.  I had many different pets from fish to turtles to dogs, yes dogs. My first dog, Lulu, lived to 17 years old.  My second dog, Mitzi, only lived to 10 years old. She was an Alaskan Malamute and weighed 100 pounds.  

And now I have been breeding Maine Coon cats for 21 years.  Why cats?  They fit my lifestyle.  Why Maine Coon cats?  They are the dogs of the cat world.  Maine Coons aren’t your typical cat.  They are outgoing cats with sweet personalities.  

I have learned so much in the past 21 years and hope to share some of that information with you in this blog.  Maybe not everyone will agree with what I say; but I am sharing my observations and experiences.

I wanted to start a blog to be different. I want to talk about the problems that your cat or dog maybe facing.  And I want to bring to light some answers and bring in some experts that may be able to help your pet.  I want to share my experiences and I want you to share your experiences.  We all have knowledge to share.

The main topics will be vaccines, nutrition and exercise.  These are the only factors we can control in our pets.  The life span of our pets has not increased over the last 20 years and we have to start asking why. Are they maxed out on their life expectancy or it is something else?  Could it be the way veterinaries are caring for our pet?  Or is it the quality of the food we are feeding them?
