Catster advocates for adopting before shopping, though we fully understand there are many reasons for seeking a breeder. So, we encourage it to be done the right way. We have not personally visited or investigated all of the breeders below. We have put the top-recommended all in one place for you to get in touch and make the best decision for you. .
Maine Coons are a special breed. These giant cats are big, fluffy, and affectionate, and it’s no wonder that once someone adopts a Maine Coon, they often become lifelong fans of the breed. Finding a purebred Maine Coon can be a chore, even in a massive state like Texas. Still, plenty of excellent breeders and catteries in the Lone Star State would be happy to introduce you to your next best friend.
The 12 Maine Coon Kitten Breeders in Texas
1. Maineflashes Maine Coons
- Alvarado, TX
The cats from Maineflashes are all raised in a ranch environment and spend time with all sorts of animals, including goats and donkeys. This helps socialize the kittens from a young age, creating some of the friendliest and most agreeable cats around.
The cattery has been in business since 1985, and they have vast experience raising Maine Coons and placing them in suitable environments. They create quite a few cats, and there are almost always kittens available to adopt.
2. Majestic Maine Coons
- Dallas, TX
This cattery never keeps their Maine Coons in cages but allows them to roam freely around the premises. This accustoms them to living with people, reducing the risk that you’ll have a skittish kitty on your hands.
This is a smaller operation, so if you fall in love with one of their cats, you must act quickly. There’s usually a waiting list for their animals, and their cats are known for their loving dispositions. Their Maine Coons all have European heritage, which is good news for purists.
3. Dawntreader Maine Coons
- Waxahachie, TX
Dawntreader may be a family-based cattery, but they have ties to all the major registration organizations, and their cats have premium pedigrees. Their animals are suitable for breeding or showing, but their emphasis is on creating top-notch pets.
To that end, they provide plenty of love and affection to each cat before adopting them out. They also work closely with a vet to ensure that all their cats are healthy, including giving them echocardiograms multiple times before they leave the breeder.
4. Big Tex Coons
- Central Texas
Big Tex is a cattery that started accidentally after a family adopted a Maine Coon and fell in love. They’re still a small organization, so you won’t have many animals to choose from. However, their cats are known for being big and boisterous and well worth the wait. Their kittens are raised among other pets, including dogs and cats, so they are comfortable around various animals.
5. Warrior Kattz Maine Coons
- Austin, TX
If you love big cats, Warrior Kattz should be your first call, as they specialize in breeding happy, hardy, healthy, and well-balanced Maine Coons. They are a Veteran-owned and managed Maine Coon cattery focused on health as their number 1 priority, and they emphasize quality over quantity.
They keep their numbers low so their health and quality stay high. If you fall in love with one of their Maine Coons but don’t live in Texas, don’t worry; they offer nationwide delivery services (for an additional fee, of course).
6. Aliana Maine Coons
- Sugar Land, TX
Aliana is a cattery that grows them extra-large, but despite the enormous cats they create, each animal is registered with TICA. This is a family operation, but their cats have plenty of room to stretch out, and they’re given free rein throughout the breeder’s 8,000-square-foot home. The kittens are primarily fed a raw diet, so they should be in excellent health by the time they’re ready to adopt.
7. Pip and Paws
- Comfort, TX
Pip and Paws cattery focuses on creating the ideal pet, and each of their cats comes complete with all the necessary shots and alterations, not to mention being microchipped.
The kittens live in a family environment around other cats, dogs, and children, so they should be equipped to handle just about any living situation. Virtually every available surface in the cattery is dedicated to a toy, tree, or other stimulating object.
8. Pistol Paws Maine Coons
- Terrell, TX
You have a wide selection of felines to examine at Pistol Paws, and you can select the size, color, and even number of toes that your next Maine Coon will have. Being picky may entail waiting a bit, but it’s nice to know you can get the animal you want.
The breeders enjoy keeping up to date on their cats, even those that have left the cattery, and they ask that all purchasers provide regular updates on their animals (including pictures on their birthdays). This undoubtedly helps dull the pain of missing the cats and helps the breeder strengthen their program.
9. Silky Amber Maine Coons
- Frisco, TX
This breeder got their start creating “Toygers,” but upon discovering the Maine Coon breed, they fell in love, and Silky Amber officially changed directions. The cats are raised in a family environment around a steady stream of visitors, which should ensure they’re properly socialized from a young age.
This is a small, home-based cattery, and they don’t produce many litters. The demand for their cats is high, and they’re known for producing absolute sweethearts.
10. Kona Kats Maine Coons
- Houston, TX
Kona Kats started accidentally because the breeder fell in love with one Maine Coon in particular. The rescue cat, Kimba, lead to a lifelong love affair with the breed, eventually culminating in a small, home-based cattery.
All their animals undergo genetic screening to ensure that they’re free of known health issues, and they’re fed raw diets to ensure that they get premium nutrition. Additionally, the breeder requires that any cat adopted be kept as an inside cat, demonstrating a real dedication to the health and safety of their kittens.
11. Mitcha Coontails
- Houston, TX
The cats at Mitcha Coontails are constantly being babied; if the breeder’s two daughters aren’t shoving them in strollers or brushing them extensively, their Old English Sheepdog is giving them a bath. That’s good news for prospective owners since it ensures that their cats will be well-accustomed to being handled.
Mitcha Coontails prizes familiarity with their clients, and interacting with them on social media or through other channels will improve your odds of moving to the front of the line. Additionally, they’ll consider granting breeding rights to trusted parties, so it’s worth putting in the effort to make their acquaintance.
12. Timeless Maine Coons
- Forney, TX
This small cattery includes two dams and a sire, so they only produce a few litters each year. All their animals are registered with TICA and CFA and date back several generations to ensure you’ll get premium bloodlines with each purchase.
Their cats are all genetically tested before being adopted out, and each pet is backed by 1 month of pet insurance from Trupanion, giving you peace of mind that you’ll be covered in case an accident happens right after bringing them home.
