Our kittens cost $1900 plus shipping. All of our kittens are sold with a contract. They are vaccinated, micro chipped, dewormed and spayed/neutered before leaving our cattery. Our kittens come with 1 month free pet insurance from Trupanion, and we offer a health guarantee. We provide vet records to new owners and their papers as they are all registered with TICA. Depending on the delivery/shipping method, kittens also come with a care package. And of course, we offer lifetime support to all of our WildSkies kittens.
If you are interested in purchasing a WildSkies kitten, you should reach out to us to let us know about an upcoming litter you are interested in. Feel free to ask questions, gather information, or be placed on our wait list if you have decided to purchase. When kittens are 3-5 weeks old, those on our waitlist will be contacted to select a kitten. Once you've selected your kitten, you'll be asked to sign a sales contract and send a $400 deposit to make your reservation. You will be provided ongoing updates about your kitten until they are ready to go home. The remaining purchase price must be paid in full 10 days prior to pickup/shipping. Kittens sold within Canada do not leave our cattery until they reach 12-16 weeks of age, to ensure they are properly socialized and have completed their veterinary care prior to leaving. Kittens sold outside of the country are not eligible to leave until 16 weeks of age.
We can help make arrangements for shipping. Our preferred options include:
Due to the large volume of interest we have received, we have started a waiting list. Please contact us if you’d like your name added, and we will send you our brief questionnaire to fill out. Thank you!
Not at this time. In the future we may consider it on a case by case basis.
Yes! One of our main concerns is ensuring both our breeding cats and our out-going kittens are in tip top shape. Our breeding cats have been genetically tested for:
They have also undergone testing and examinations with our vet for FIV (Feline immunodeficiency virus) and FELV (Feline leukemia virus). All of our cats are fully vaccinated and they are routinely checked for any potential parasites or illnesses. We are in the process of researching about future x-rays for hip dysplasia and echocardiograms for HCM.
We do not attend cat shows at the moment. This is due to COVID and everything being cancelled. We started our cattery right when the COVID tragedy hit the world, so our plans to become involved in shows has been put on hold. We hope to explore the cat show world in the future, and will post updates when that time comes.
No. All of our kittens come spayed and neutered. We follow the TICA, CCA and CVMA guidelines which recommend kittens being altered before they leave our cattery. There is a lot of misinformation surrounding early spay/neuter practices and we did not take this decision lightly.
Our reasons for this decision include:

There is a lot of debate about what brand of food is the best. There will always be people who love a certain brand and hate a certain brand. Here at WildSkies we follow our veterinarian recommendations to feed a high protein food, with great ingredients and no fillers. So we feed our cats Orijen brand dry food and Backcountry Raw as a wet food. We recommend feeding both wet and dry food because cats tend to not drink enough water to remain adequately hydrated and wet food can provide extra moisture. It also provides variety and enjoyment for your cat. If you decide to feed a different brand, we just recommend you do your research and transition your cat slowly by mixing the food as not to cause an upset stomach. Some cats can be allergic to different ingredients in food, and this often manifests as skin irritations. It's a good idea to extra vigilant when switching your cats diet in order to ensure the new food is a good match.
Like most pets, they do require some grooming. Different Maine Coons will require different levels of grooming depending on factors like their individual coat length, how well they groom themselves, the current season and if they have a tendency to develop mats or not. A good guideline is to expect to brush your cat between 1-3 times/week. Grooming doesn't need to be long procedure however, a simple five or ten minute brushing goes a long way towards keeping your cat's coat beautiful and healthy! You can also take your cat to the groomer's for a deshed in the spring to aid in the natural shedding process. We do not recommend shaving your cat.
No, we do not allow our kittens to be declawed. Declawing is a cruel procedure that is rapidly becoming illegal in many places. Please see our Links & Resources page for more information. We recommend purchasing a scratching post for your kitten and regular nail trims.
No. The outside world is a dangerous place for cats. There are multiple risks when allowing a cat to free-roam outside, including:
Instead of letting your cat free-roam outside, we recommended supervised outings. This could mean utilizing a harness, buying/building a catio, or just actively monitoring your cat in a safe environment like an enclosed backyard (if your cat is a not runner). Cats greatly enjoy fresh air, but the safest situation is always one in which the owner has taken the proper precautions so no harm occurs.
