Oreo's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Oreo's Story...
This is Oreo, a female 12 week old Maine Coon mix, or "puffer*" kitten. This
darling kitten and her siblings were pulled from the shelter in the nick of
time. She is very affectionate and sweet, and loves to hang out with people.
So far, she does not seem to be too worried about dogs or other cats. She is
a confident and very pretty purr monster who will just steal your heart
away.


*What is a "Puffer"?
Since many people looking to adopt Maine Coons or Norwegian Forest cats are
looking for " a really, really big cat", we like to let you know how we
identify a kitten as a Maine Coon or Norwegian. They are what we fondly call
a "Puffer". We find them in shelters and our jaw just drops at the thought
of someone dumping such an extraordinary kitten in a shelter.

They look like they could be purebred Maine Coon or Norwegians. They have
long coats, good facial structures, and feathering or tufting on their ears.
Some of these have grown up to be as big as a Maine Coon and look like they
are purebred cats. Since we do find easily identifiable purebred kittens of
other breeds in shelters, there is no reason these couldn't also be
purebreds.

Maine Coons are one of the most popular breeds of cats and not everyone
follows though on an agreement to alter their purebred cat. A lot of these
same types of people think that a Maine Coon "should" be allowed to roam
outside. So, we have fairly high odds that the kittens we are seeing and
carefully identifying could be at least 1/2 Maine Coon.

We are very selective of the kittens we identify as Maine Coons or Norwegian
Forest Cat. We are very good at identifying adult Maine Coons and Norwegians
and we think we've got an excellent track record for identifying kittens
that will grow to be extraordinary adults. We have studied these breeds and
continue to hone our skills so that we can be as honest in our breed
identification as possible. We can go through a shelter and look at 100
kittens. It goes like this: "Domestic long hair, another domestic long hair,
... Oh My Goodness!" We take the "Oh My Goodness" ones. The bottom line is
that we cannot guarantee that they are CFA standard kittens, what we do know
is that they will be stunning when they mature.

If you feel you need to have a guarantee that your kitten is a purebred or
is going to grow to be over 15 lbs, you need to contact a reputable breeder
and purchase a purebred kitten. In our many years of doing Rescue we have
seen quite a few pregnant Persians. If they have been bred with a non
Persian the babies look just like Maine Coons or Norwegian Forest cats. A
closer breed ID would be that they look much like the Siberian Cats with
their slightly domed heads and beautifully rounded face. A true Maine Coon
aficionado may notice the slight difference in the head structure as the
kitten matures, but not always. Depending upon the parentage they often grow
to be quite large and you'd think they are purebred Maine Coons.

Since Persians are the most common breed of purebred cat purchased there are
many wandering around out there unaltered. You may be adopting a cat that is
1/2 Persian. If so, you are very lucky as we know they will be wonderful
companion cats and be breathtakingly beautiful when they are fully grown.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oreo, a Davis Maine Coon kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Davis, or seeking a Maine Coon kitten from a breeder in Davis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Davis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Davis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Davis paves the way for another one to be saved.
