Get a Maine Coon Stud First – Advice for New Breeders
Some Maine Coon breeders will say to get a Maine Coon Stud boy first, while some will say to get a girl first. I don’t know if there’s technically a right or wrong answer, but I can share my experience with you which might help you decide. Remember, I’m no expert but I can take you through a vault of emotions that drives me to write this post.
My breeding journey started around March 2017. I started talking to a well known breeder about becoming a breeder. She was willing to mentor me, as long as I only dealt with breeders that she approved of. The more I talked to her, the more I decided against working with her. I just didn’t like the vibe I was getting, so I cut my ties with her. I’m glad I did! Since then I’ve discovered that her cattery has experienced some health issues. Back then, I didn’t know much about properly vetting breeder cats or checking the health history.
Will a Maine Coon Stud Spray in the House?
In September 2017 – Omega, my white solid boy came home. I was still on the fence about breeding because I didn’t have any girls. My biggest concern was where to house a male in the event he was a sprayer. There were so many questions in my mind that it just wasn’t definitive enough for me to move forward. Not at this time. I was SO CLOSE, but just not there yet.
To make a long story short, I altered Omega . I SHOULDN’T have done that! At the time, I felt a little ragged around the edges and maybe even a little uncertain about what my next step was. He’s turning out to be such a gorgeous guy and would’ve made an awesome Maine Coon stud. But once he was neutered, I had immediate regret. It was too late. This was most likely my first mistake I made as a Breeder. Not one that caused any damage though. He makes a wonderful pet, however, and I wouldn’t trade him for the world!
That still left me without a Maine Coon stud.
Which Comes First, the Boy or the Girl?
It wasn’t long after that I got everything situated in my head. Something clicked in my head and in my heart, and I started to move forward with intent.
I started looking for a female Maine Coon with breeding rights. If you’re a new breeder, then you already know the challenge of finding a breeder in the United States that will allow breeding rights. So I started looking is Europe. That’s when I found Catsvill County’s Ursula Olegavna! She became my first Maine Coon Queen. She was imported at the age of 6 months and started her life here with me at Sassy Koonz Maine Coon Cattery.
In my case, the female Maine Coon came first!
