About Coon's Ransom
The name Coon's Ransom came from combining the breed of cat, Maine Coon, with my last name. Ransom.
My cattery started after I adopted my first Maine Coon Griffin, from the breeder Wild West Exotics in California. I fell in love with Griffin and the breed at first sight. He was such a joy to have in my life. Sadly, Griffin disappeared one day when he wandered outside, never to return. A heart breaking lesson for me. All of our cats still have free access to outside and climbing trees, however they are confined within the safety of a very large fenced area.
All of my breeding cats are DNA tested for major genetic defects as well has screened for hip dysplasia and annual echocardiogram to screen for HCM. Only cats with clean tests results are included in our breeding program. Click HERE if you are interested in reading about the different genetic tests and diseases.
I produce a few litters of kittens each year. All of my female cats are managed and maintained in our home as loved pets and part of the family. The males have a heated and air conditioned building outside of the house. They have free access to the cat secured yard. About an acre of space for them to run and play in. The kittens are raised in my home with constant attention and socializing. This ensures when they move on to their new homes, they adapt to their new family quickly and with very little stress.
