Welcome to Honeycoon Maine Coon and
Brittasweet British Shorthair Cats.
Ira and I started showing and breeding Maine
Coon Cats in 1986 in Florida. We retired to North Carolina and added
the British Shorthair breed to our household of pedigreed cats. For
over 20 years we have been producing regional and national award
winning Maine Coon and British Shorthair cats.
The choice of our cattery names reflects our deep affection for
these two breeds. From the start of our breeding program our efforts
have been dedicated to producing healthy, genetically sound kittens
with loving personalities. We have both pet and show cats, winning
hearts and earning awards around the world.
We have continually refined our methods and ideas about raising our
kittens. They are
members of our family until we place them with
their new families.
Some of our ideas have been in place from the beginning such as no
declawing. Others have been developed over the years and we now do
early spays & neuters.
We have developed our own method of intensive handling from day one
until they leave for their new homes. Both the British Shorthair
kittens and the Maine Coon kittens benefit from this attention and
the results are that they turn into very loving cats. So much so the
either breed frequently come back for another and refer
all their friends to us.
We like to ensure that new owners have all the information they will
need to make a smooth transition for the kitten or cat into their
new home and for themselves too. We provide reading material as well
as advice for the best ways to introduce the kitten/cat to their new
home. We have additional material for introductions to animals they
may already have and we are always willing to help with any
challenges that arise.
So whether you’re looking for a loving family companion or that
special show prospect, please contact us and use the form so we can
best help you.
