The Cost of a Maine Coon Kitten
The cost of Maine Coon kitten has risen all over the country, that’s largely due to supply and demand. In some places in Florida, you can expect to pay upwards of $3,000 – $4500 which is just, in my mind a “supply and demand” issue that some breeders may or may not be taking advantage of.
On average a Florida Maine Coon kitten here at OptiCoons and MajestiCoons with very long healthy bloodlines currently cost between $2,350 and $2,650. Our pricing has not changed much over the years and we believe the Maine Coon breed is the best breed of cat overall. Given that, we want to make Healthy, High Quality and Adorable Maine Coon Kittens for sale at OptiCoons and MajestiCoons available to a larger market segment and not limit it to those who can afford more.
What is the Cost of a Maine Coon Kitten
Some of our bloodlines are from the foundation lines that are nearly 40 years and have no genetic defects or diseases to be found. Other costs that are associated with the cost of a Maine Coon Kitten with a goal of breeding and raising quality kittens are pretty much the same from state to state. Here in Florida, all breeders have to comply with health certificates and state regulations.
So when you compare Florida Maine Coon breeders all of our costs are about the same, assuming most are doing all the standard DNA and PCR testing that serious breeders do and properly registering cats with a well know registrar such as TICA.
Consider Breeder Awards and Practices – Important!
When considering the cost of a Maine Coon Kitten It really comes down to the breeder’s success rate over the years and their reviews and customer satisfaction which comes from open, ethical, and transparent practices that you the buyer needs to consider. One such consideration that should carry a lot of weight is the breeder’s commitment to ethics and animal husbandry. One such example is TICA’s Outstanding Maine Coon Cattery Award which is a highly sought after but not easy to obtain award given by TICA on an annual basis. Here at OptiCoons and MajestiCoons both of our catteries are back-to-back multiple-year winners.
