Pictures of Maine Coon Ancestors and Maine Coon Breeders

New times, big changes….

This is an archive of photographs dedicated to the earlier Maine Coon Breeding Cats and their Breeders. It was first created by Tina Dodge, Fogcity. It is now maintained by Diana Verhaegen  from cattery The Haecoon

At the time the Ancestors-gallery was created by Tina Dodge, there were not as many breeders as there are nowadays and so of course not that many pictures of our beloved Maine Coon.Time has changed and so must the Ancestors gallery.Therefore we have made some changes/rules for anyone who wants to have their Maine Coon added into the gallery.

  1. You can send in pictures of registered Maine Coon cats BUT they must have produced at least one registered offspring [this is not applicable to the Methuselahs].  If the pedigrees are not in the database yet, you can send these to Diana Verhaegen
  2. Pictures of Maine Coon breeders, who got their first litter of Maine Coon kittens at least 10 years ago. Please send your first pedigree along.
  3. *Pictures of pure (100%) foundation Maine Coons.
  4. **Pictures of registered Maine Coon cats who lived to be 15 years or older (pictures of the cats in their old age are preferred)
  5. We also would love to have pictures of cats born before 1980 for our Historic Maine Coon section.
  6. The pictures you send in need to be named by the registered name of the cat so we can add them in alphabetical order. The cat’s picture will be shown with the cattery name as pre-fix.
  7. If you have them, we would like three pictures per cat. 1) One of the entire body, 2) one head  and 3) one profile picture.

Pictures should be not bigger than 40 KB and three pictures only. If this is not possible, please send whatever format you have available.

*There will be a separate pure (100%) foundation section. The part new foundation lines/part traditional show lines will be added in the section Registered Maine Coon Cats

** If you also want to register your 15 year olds or older Maine Coons in the Methusalah section then look here

If you have a picture to add, which meets one of the criteria above, please email it to: ancestors@pawpeds.com.

To the gallery!
