South Maine Coons Cattery
Welcome to our small Maine Coons cattery, located in Warner Robins GA, USA we hand deliver our kittens in Georgia & ship anywhere in the United States.
Our priority is to breed healthy and beautiful kittens with the most loving and people oriented personalities. We specialize in outstanding genetics from WCF (World Cat Federation) gold championship European bloodlines. Our breeding Sire and Dams are mostly imported from Europe & Russia.
A little background about me, my name is Emiliya, I am originally from Europe and ever since I was a little girl I was fascinated with lions & the feline family in general.
I was very fortunate to have had the ability to travel the world and visit The Big Cat sanctuaries in South Africa and see the Lions, Tigers and Cheetahs in person among other animals.
After a very long period of research on what feline is best suited for my home, considering a lion was out of the question, I decided on a Maine Coon and so the journey of finding the right breeder and the right kitten for me begain and the rest is history.

Frequently Asked questions
01 Where are you located?
We are an official TICA registered cattery located in Warner Robins, GA USA
<strong>02</strong> Can we come visit your cattery and play with the Maine Coons?
We are a completely closed Cattery. It would be extremely stressful on our cats if we were to let strangers into our home regularly, let alone to try and touch them.
We do not offer stud services or allow any visitors. Clients who are picking up a kitten with a placed deposit may pick up in person but playing with the cats is not allowed. The visitors may be met outside of our home or only allowed in one allocated room, shoe covers and hand sanitizers will be provided. Usage of bathroom is not allowed.
We take great care with infection and parasites prevention to ensure you get a healthy kitten, most people have pets at home who may carry viruses and parasites that may be brought in the cattery on shoes and clothes. Some people will visit multiple catteries and handle many cats thus then putting ours at risk of contamination if we allow contact. We usually have newborn, unvaccinated kittens and pregnant Dams on site, it would be disastrous if they were to get contaminated.
We FaceTime or Zoom with all our clients at the time of choosing a kitten and up until the kitten is ready for pick up.
<strong>03</strong> Is it okay to declaw my cat?
We do not allow nor condone declawing of our cats or kittens and this would entirely void your kitten application.
<strong>04</strong> When is the earliest I can get my kitten?
We do not release any kittens before a minimum of 12 weeks of age. We reserve the right to retain a kitten for longer than the expected pick up date if we feel he needs more time to mature.
<strong>05</strong> How do I reserve a kitten?
At the moment our reservation process is first come, first served. We do have a free waiting list at the moment, meaning you can fill out the kitten application and keep in touch until there is a litter. A 30% non-refundable deposit is required upon selecting a kitten, which happens after FaceTiming/Zoom and signing a Kitten Contract, this whole process usually takes about 2 hours.
<strong>06</strong> What does a South Maine Coon Kitten come with?
- TICA registration
- Copies of parent’s Health Tests
- Vet checked
- Vaccinated against: Panleukopenia, Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Feline Bordetella
- Rabies Vaccine optional as this is an indoor cat and the Rabis shot can wait until after the kitten is picked up.
- Dewormed with Advocate or alternative at the Vet.
* South Maine Coon kittens are not fixed at 3 months of age, this is against everything we believe. A female can be fixed on or after 6 months and a male 8-10months, unless your vet determines it is okay to fix your male kitten a little earlier than 8 months.
Most importantly you get a guaranteed purring machine! A kitten raised with great care and love. A kitten that’s held and socialized from birth as well as used to interact with children and dogs. We groom our kittens regularly until they are ready to move to their forever homes to ensure you get a kitten that’s easy to groom and receptive to handling. Kitten claws are not cut prior to 12 weeks of age because they can be soft and damage can occur resulting in a cat which will not allow to be groomed and this is why the vet does the first cutting usually if he deems necessary otherwise you will be shown how to do it. Keeping in touch with the forever families is always an important factor, you can always reach out and we love receiving updates.
<strong>07</strong> Are your rates negotiable?
- Our rates are not negotiable and they are representative of the outstanding high quality kittens we produce. We work with the finest imported WCF Gold champion lines and health test them thoroughly. Current kitten fee is between $3800-$4000.
Note: There is an additional fee of $100 if a health certificate is required for pets travelling by plane otherwise the kitten comes with a Health Passport.
<strong>08</strong> Can we pick up in person and can you deliver?
- Yes, you can pick up your kitten in person at our home or the airport and also we can deliver to you for a fee which is discussed at the time of reservation.
- If you are a breeder please give us some information about your Cattery and goals. We take great care about placing our kittens in suitable homes. We may request more information about your breeding program and may ask for more details/ pictures of the kittens future living accommodations. We only sell our kittens to registered, responsable/ethical and cage free catteries. Mentoring to start your own cattery is a program we can offer.

10 out of 10. My husband and I have our perfect blue silver beige ivory marbled tabby male, River, and I gained a friend in Emiliya the breeder. My husband found her off of the TICA website looking for a good registered breeder, little did we know she was the best. She’s breeding with some of the best pedigrees and bloodlines from Europe. She’s responsible, kind, smart, and keeps her operation at a size she can comfortably handle at home so she can provide the best quality of care and attention to her cats and kittens and does it as a hobby, so that she’s not depending on income from the cattery. This is important because it means she isn’t skimping on care or nutrition for the cats to lower her bottom line. Her cats her loved and healthy and come from champion bloodlines. I would assure someone with confidence that Emiliya is one of the most responsible and best breeders in the country! Beautiful sweet cats and top of line communication. We love our River so much!
We had a wonderful experience getting a cat from South Maine Coons. We were able to video chat to see all the kittens and ask questions. I was met at the airport with my new kitten and everything was so easy. Our new family member has the best temperament and we are so happy with the whole experience! My kids have decided to name our new kitten Lucky Charms
