Cattery CoonForest is a cattery in Oss, in the south-east of the Netherlands.

I intend to breed strong, healthy and well socialized Maine coons.
Once or twice a year we have kittens.

Our little Maine coons grow up in the house with the other cats and they expect visits from their future owners. Just like the adults they have access to a fenced veranda in the garden. CoonForest-cats are living in the Netherlands, Danmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany and Belgium.

Strong boning, big ears with lynxtips, excellent profiles and muzzles are important for our breeding. Specially I like Maine coons who have the X-factor, that special Wow-look.

We are member of FIFE, Felikat and RMC (Rasclub Maine Coon).

All our cats are checked by our vet two times every year in Sterkliniek
De Overlaet (www.overlaet.nl/) and our breeding-cats are tested for FELV/FIV, Patella Luxation, PKD (echo) and HCM (echo and dna).

I go to catshows since 1998. First with my Norwegian forestcat Mysterious Girl aka Tinkerbell.
I got my first Maine coon Madonna in 2000.

Besides on shows you can also 'meet' CoonForest-cats in catshops. They are from time to time models for labels packaging and advertising pictures of new cat toys, baskets and cat trees. Fribanikos Al Capone and Kane's daughter Maxi Jazz are the stars in a commercial for the cattree 'Catrix' (beeztees.nl formerly www.vanrieldistripet.nl).. Our Godiva got even her own label, hanging on cattoys sold worldwide. The cats like to test new catstuff and when they sometimes don't want to pose we respect that. Cats are cats.

I am always willing to answer questions about our cats, kittens, upcoming litters and cattery. You can fill in the contact form.

Enjoy your visit on our homepage!
