"Pride N Joy Maine Coons" began our journey in 2006 with our very first Maine Coon. After loosing our German Shepard, Tasha many years before, we were ready for another pet. A Maine Coon named Shannell (shown above), was our choice. She would retrieve her toys when she wanted to play, just like a dog. So our hobby began and continues today as we breed for health & temperament.
We have retired from showing our precious cats
Dedicated to the Maine Coon Breed, all breeders have tested NEGATIVE for the HCM & kidney disease thru DNA. We are currently in the process of screening for HCM thru Echocardiograms with Board Certified Cardiologists and testing for PK Deficiency. No breeder can guarantee that a cat won't develop HCM as research continues, but "Pride N Joy" will only breed if tests confirm negative for known genes.
Pride N Joy Maine Coons is located in Rhode Island.
