Welcome to Pascoe Maine Coons
Welcome and thank you for taking the time to get to know us here at Pascoe cattery.
I am Teagan, I have always had a overwhelming passion for animals great and small, while studying my diploma in criminal justice i welcomed home Musco my first Maine coon (this was a long wait being introduced to Maine coons five years prior). Needless to say my world changed with the arrival of Musco and soon my studies changed to animal management, vet nursing and the Maine coon.
I am blessed now to wake every day to such a wonderful breed of cat and could not imagine a life with out them. They bring an amazing amount of joy, I love that i then have the opportunity in sharing that with such lovely families.
I pride myself on breeding healthy happy well adjusted kittens for family homes. All Pascoe Maine coons are tested and cleared for genetic issues common in the Maine coon breed. we are bless and thankful to work with original Australian lines and pedigrees. This gives us the knowledge of knowing our lines and pedigrees and being able to refer back to Australian breeders who have worked with these lines for more the 40 years.
This has given us a better understanding of the health and temperament of our cats.
We are not currently active in the showing of Maine coons, however we hope in the very near future we may be able to join in with two or three shows a year. This will not be for titles or ribbons but or further knowledge and growth within the breed.
About the Maine Coon
The maine coon is one of the largest domesticated breed of cat. The maine coon is one of the oldest natural breeds of cat. Being one of the oldest natural breeds of cat there is no way to trace the originality of the breed, many say Turkish Angora's arrived on the shores of Maine and bred with the local wild cats giving us the maine coon we adore today. Reputed for its intelligence and playful, gentle personality.
The maine coon has a stunning apperance, with a large rectangular body, large boning, flowing silky coat, larg bushy tail and beautiful furnished ears. Males weighing between 6.8kg - 11.4 kg, Females weighing between 4.5kg - 6.8kg. Hight of a full grown maine coon bing between 25 and 41 cm, reaching a posable length of 120 cm from head to tip of tail. The maine coons coat is a semi long hair coat being shorter around the head and legs. Minimal grooming is required for the breed compared to other long-haired breeds, as their coat is mostly self-maintaining owing to a light-density undercoat. With the coat being thinker in winter and thinner in summer.
Maine Coons are known as the "gentle giants" and possess above-average intelligence, making them relatively easy to train. They are known for being loyal to their family and cautious but not mean around strangers, but are independent and not clingy. The Maine Coon is generally not known for being a "lap cat" but their gentle disposition makes the breed relaxed around dogs, other cats, and children. They are playful throughout their lives, with males tending to be more clownish and females generally possessing more dignity, yet both are equally affectionate. Many Maine Coons have a fascination with water and some theorize that this personality trait comes from their ancestors, who were aboard ships for much of their lives. Maine Coons are also well known for being very vocal cats. They are known for their frequent yowling, chattering, chirping, "talking" (especially "talking back" to their owners), and making other loud vocalizations.
