Cats are not like dogs, they are not normally a large group, pack or colony animal. Dogs can be raised in healthy large group situations, or in kennels, housed together without stressing each other out. Cats, are different.
Though Cats are very social creatures by nature and thrive better by having a fellow feline or two as playmates, cats that are forced to live in large group setting can manifest stress and illness.
Cats need stimulation during the day just like humans. Studies have shown that some animals left alone most of the day in the house, have brains that weigh up to 25% less than those who have playmates.
By having 2 or more cats, you are able to enjoy the true social nature of the cats and their relationship with each other.
With over 30 years of breeding purebred cats, we know nutrition is one of the most important factors to not only the start of life for a Maine Coon, but also throughout their lives. We have tried many different foods and many different litters, and we require certain foods for the life of our Maine Coons, because we know what a huge difference it can make for their health.
Complimented on the Wild Superb Look of our Maine Coons and Specializing in Show Quality Polydactyls, Coonplay is a small closed cattery that has extraordinary epic Maine Coons. Only having a few litters per year, we focus on health, temperament and type, in that order.
