I am Richelle and this is my husband Jeff. First I would like to thank you for visiting our website. My husband is a wonderful, understanding, caring supportive man. If it was not for his love for animals and the wonderful husband that he is, all of this would not have been possible. Thank You Sweetie!
We together have 3 boys ages 7, 14 and 16. I just started to introduce them to the cat show world. They all have a huge devotion to our cats and spoil them with love each day and night. We are very lucky to have such wonderful children to help socialize, interact and pamper our cats. Below is my loving family.
My love of the Maine Coons began when I was a little girl when my Mother bought us kids a cat that seemed to be a mix of Maine Coon. I had always dreamed of one day owning my very own pure bred Maine Coon.
We have been trusted and very blessed with beautiful girls for our breeding program from wonderful, very knowledgeable, established breeders. We will be showing in CFA and ACFA. We will continue to post updates and pictures along their journey from kitten to adult. I hope you will check back with us from time to time and follow us on our exciting journey with any future new additions or maybe to just come meet us at a show.
Since we have started showing we have made some spectacular friends and have superb breeders to help us with every step we take.
At Maine Lakes, we will breed and show these wonderful cats not only to promote the popularity of the Maine Coon breed but also to ensure that the heritage of this amazing breed of cat continues to be improved upon, and bring tears of joy to the many families who choose to have Maine Coons as members of their families. Showing our cats in CFA and ACFA provides us with an objective assessment of success of our breeding program to be sure we continue to produce Maine Coons that fit the breed standard. By showing our Maine Coons, we get the opportunity to have our cats judged by knowledgeable experts to ensure that the Maine Coons we select for our breeding program will meet the breed standard for type and personality. Attending the cat show also provides a setting for others to meet us, our Maine Coons and learn more about this amazing breed.
The Maine Coon breed is dear to my heart and I consider it a great honor to have the opportunity of a life time to raise these bundles of joy so that you may enjoy them just as much as we do.
