This page is dedicated to everyone who has purchased a kitten from me, provided a wonderful home and has taken time to send me photos of their precious Maine Coon. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do. Thank you!!!
I received the following emails from very happy Pride N Joy Maine Coon owners and wanted to share them. I can't thank them enough for taking precious time from their busy lives to send me their emails filled with compliments and providing my kittens a wonderful forever home.
Wanted to send you an update on Garbo. Brought her to the vet Monday for her rabies vaccine. In NH state law says she needs it by 16 weeks so we did the rabies this Monday and her final distemper next Monday. She went from 3.52 pounds two weeks ago to 4.91 pounds this week. Her coat is starting to change to her adult coat a little and she is beautiful. She is also one of the smartest cats I have ever owned. We don’t let our cats on the dinning table or the bar in the kitchen and she hasn’t had to be disciplined yet. I just say NO in a firm voice and she gets right off and has already started to stay off it. She gets on the bar stool but stays there and watches. She is truly a magnificent animal. Thank you.
I will get a picture soon in good light so you can see how her coat is developing.
Just wanted to let you know my boy Apollo is the bestest and most beautiful boy in the world!!
I am interested in a playmate for him in the near future. Hoping maybe this fall? Would like another red possibly with white?
I will be keeping an eye out on your website. Just wanted to let you know!
Have a wonderful summer. I will send you a picture around 9 months!

It has been a while since I have emailed you. How are you and your family doing? We are fine. I just wanted to share with you how our children are doing.
First Sheba, she has grown and her fur is very full and truly beautiful and soft. She sings a lot and when she sits upright she looks very majestic. My family visited for a few days and were so taken by how warm and friendly she is and how beautiful her face, eyes and fur are that they labeled her as royalty. She talks to you too in her cooing voice and her purring is so adorable. My daughter wanted to take her home but of course I didn’t allow it. She never gets fussy or scratches anyone and she is so easygoing that it’s hard to do your house work because you just want to play and talk with her. We LOVE her so very much and she has really brought joy in our home and to my visiting family and friends.
Now Ritz my boy. He is handsome and his fur is also soft like silk and he is fur is getting full like his sister’s fur. He is VERY active and runs through the house so fast that we get startled. He loves to jump on your shoulder so he can give you his cat kisses and he stays on your shoulders while you walk around the house or talk to family or our friends. He will jump on anyone shoulders so that he can kiss them. He is getting big and heavy too but we don’t mind him on our shoulders. We love it. He REALLY loves close interaction and physical affection. He will jump on my table tray while I am on my iPad or reading because he wants me to talk to him or just pat him. He does this everyday. When I get home he is the first to greet me at the door and will follow me around for attention. He is so personable that you just can’t ignore him. He will not let you. He is totally different from his sister. He sleeps with me every night and has done this since we brought him home from your house. I am really attached to my boy and love him dearly. He is very playful and LOVES attention.
We are so grateful we found your website and met you and received these two truly beautiful kittens from you. You have done an excellent job raising them and it shows by their behavior with us and others. I can have anyone at my home and Sheba and Ritz do not hide or run from them. They act the same with them as they do with my husband and I. They treat everyone as family.
I just wanted to share with you how happy we are and how well they are doing. Thank you so much for these wonderful kittens. We enjoy them a lot. They are our family.
I hope all is well with you and your family and I will be in touch again.
Thank you again and please say hello to your hubby for us.
It all started when we went to a cat show in Natick looking for a Maine Coon. We spoke with many breeders and she was the friendliest and was willing to spend some time with us. After speaking with her it became evident that she was very careful about her matches of sires and dams and health was number one. Her main concern was having her kittens going to a loving home. Her kittens are very reasonably priced and are brought up in her house so they adjust very easily. She had one kitten available and after seeing his picture we knew he was the one. Our cats are our children so Tyler was the first to join our family. He has a beautiful face , gorgeous green eyes and is a big baby. Diane and John were very welcoming and you could see that they loved all their cats and kittens. Once Tyler was home we knew he needed a playmate. Diane had another litter on the way so we choose a female and named her Abby Diane. A very elegant black and white with a pink nose. Her tail is like a plume with the feel of the finest of silk. She is sweet and playful girl.
Next step my niece wanted a cat and not a kitten as she has a senior dog. Who else would I call other than Diane! Tyler's mother was going to become a retired breeder . Jewel is loved by Jennifer and affectionate to all who come to her house. She talks all the time and races around the house. I recently saw her and thought how beautiful and what a coat. Jennifer states she has never had a cat like this and treasurers her.
So here we go again and now we bring home a classic tabby who has a silver bib by sire Mika. His name is Patrick John. What a big boy , talks and is very affectionate. Since Tyler and Abby Diane bond together we felt we would need a playmate for him. Before we even brought him home we contacted Diane who had another litter. When we picked up Patrick John we put a deposit on a playmate for him. He is Winston a red and white poly by Mika he is white near his upper neck with a red spot that we call a start button. He is a clown talks and is very affectionate and loves Patrick John.
When they go to the vet where there a multi vets, they and the techs all want to see our cats. Our friends love coming to our house to see ,pet and play with them. From the vet to the groomer they all state how beautiful they are. There is no need to go to a comedy show we have one at our house

Hi Diane, 10/4/17
I wanted to share with you that my neighbors have come to my home to see my babies and they are so taken back on how beautiful they are and how warm and friendly they are. What really impresses them is how very soft their fur is. They said it is like touching silk. Ritz has been the talk of the town. At the vet he is so friendly and personable that the assistant tech wanted to take him home. Told them no of course. =>. Sheba' markings have been striking to those who have seen her.
Your kittens and cats are truly beautiful and gentle as well. I am so very thankful to have them. I wanted to share the compliments that I keep getting every time friends or family see them.
I wanted to ask you will you be having any more kittens that are blue and white ? Yes I am thinking about another one. But it is a thought. I just love the two that I have. Ritz is resting on my bed as I write this email and Sheba is in her favorite chair. I will send pictures soon. The new litter of kittens are so cute. Thanks for posting them. I enjoy seeing the pictures.
Please say hello to your hubby and will speak with you soon.
8/22/18 Hello Diane, How are things going with you? Hope that you are enjoying the summer. I wanted to send you a photo of Garbo. I now have an audience every night when I cook dinner. :-) She is growing so fast it is amazing. I still can’t trim her nails. I have given up and brought her to the groomer today to have her nails trimmed. Once she gets old enough I will be taking here there two be groomed anyway so I thought I would just start having her trim her nails now. I will try to get a better pic of her coat for you. She is really pretty and SO soft. What a gift. Thank you so much. Regards Kyle
7/24/18 Hello Diane, I hope you are well. I just wanted to show you the latest pics of Iggy. He is so big- his paws are already twice the size of our 3 year old tabby! The vet just adored him and everyone has complimented his easy going (and cuddly) demeanor. He is getting more used to the boat rides, prefers to be on his leash laying on my lap. Iggy is such such a good boy- such a snuggler. Thanks for all you did to raise such a great pet. Mona and Dylan
6/6/18 From Kyle She does love her toys. I have a feather thing with a sparkle ball that is like a bird and I am starting to get her to jump and catch it. I know she is still a little too small to jump but I can get her to catch it if I keep it 6-12 inches from the ground. I usually play with her hard for 15-20 minutes after I feed her to burn off some of the explosive energy. She also loves this door hanger we have that has like 5 tentacles hanging with bells at the end of each. She plays with that a lot. She is such a character. Her meow is so precious. Do you know what age the meow goes from her little chirp to a more cat like meow? Attached is how I have spent the last three work days!!! She sleeps on my chest all day
6/3/18 Hi Diane, Well, after having to introduce Clementine slowly to Cornelius due to his being upset with the “intruder” in his house, they have become best friends! I’ve attached a photo of them from yesterday. They have started snuggling and cleaning each other. And the playing can last for hours! The vet appointment went really well. Clementine was a hit. My vet “stole” her for a bit as she walked her into the break room so that everyone got a chance to pet and hold her. I’ll send more photos in the future as she grows. Thanks, Susan
Hi Diane, 4/17/18 Here is our other pride and joy. She has grown bigger and fluffy. She is taking over my husband's chair. She and her brother rule the house. They still are attracting attention because of their fur and size and their easygoing personality. Every time someone pats them they comment on how silky soft their fur is. They do stand out. I love the new litter. Take care and say hello to your family for us. Purrs, Alethea
Hi Diane, 4/3/18 Wanted to give you an update on our baby girl. We decided to call her "Fanta". □ She has been wonderful and fun of energy! A great addition to our family! Fanta and my daughter have become fast friends and can't spend a minute apart. We are do thrilled to have her and are enjoying every minute. I attached a few pics for you. Thank You, Jamie
I loved the following 4 pictures from Chris so much for the love & happiness shown by all,

1/13/18 Hi Diane nose touches. They are going to be friends!! Apollo is doing great. He does not show any signs of anxiety at all. He came right in and went with the flow. A few different house noises have startled him, he is rolling right along. He is eating fine, toilet issues are all well. Loves his belly rubs. He slept like a baby all cuddled up on my shoulder sharing my pillow! Loves being with his poppa. Thank you for this wonderful baby boy. Have a great day. Deb Sent from my iPad
1/8/18 Good morning Diane, I thought you would like this. They are BFF. They get along so well together. They are also very smart too. Ritz is starting to learn how to turn the knob on the door to get in to the room. Sheba watches him and learns from him. So they keep us on our toes. I hope you’re doing well with this very cold weather. Say hello to your family for me. Take care. Purrs, Alethea
12/8/17 Sheldon Cooper. He is the best kitten ever, very affectionate best friends with the Jack Russell ,they sleep together wash each other’s face chase and wrestle all the time.I think he thinks he’s a dog. He chooses her mostly over her own kind. Went to first Vet apt, walked in in his vest on leash, they loved him as they passed him around. He was purring and loving the attention. He is quite the boy. He rules the house. Deb and Everett Sent from my iPad
10/20/17 This has got to be a one and only. Hi Diane. Just want to let you know Bernie is doing great! He’s growing like a weed and such fun to have around. You should be proud of the beautiful kitties your boys & girls produce. I’m attaching a recent photo of Bernie helping me with the dishes □ Purrs, Holly Thanks Holly!!!
Hi Diane, 9/20/17 I wanted to send you this picture because I thought Ritz was the quiet and not hyper kitten but I was wrong. He is energetic, very loving and not shy at all. He goes up to anyone that comes to visit. We love him and he really keeps us on our toes. He wanted to say hello. Take care, Purrs, Alethea
Jasper and his BFF. No worries at all. What a great cat he is. The personality he has is amazing. He has taken over this house and the places and poses we find him in are comical. I just adopted another dog who is a 9 year old lab and Jasper was not phased by it at all. They are new buddies Bethany 6/28/16 Sent from AOL Mobile Mail Thank you Bethany
Just love this little boy. My black lab and he are best buddies. You are not going to believe this but both he and Onyx were on the dog bed and Jazzy had his head on my labs and they were sound asleep. My mother went to go take a picture and her camera's batteries were dead. I know it will happen again because the 2 of them are buddies. Onyx will wag his tail and the kitty will play with it and jump over it. He is a nut. He has been the best kitten that I have ever had. He is so sweet. He won't be around and then all of a sudden he is standing right behind you purring away. He sounds like a little motor. Bethany 3/1/16
Hello Diane, Here is a picture of Patches at twelve weeks old in one of her quiet minutes. She is a bundle of joy but when she is on a tear watch out; everything and anyone is fair game. She is like a dog; she will follow us around the house and when we have been out and get back home, invariably, she will be sitting by the door waiting to greet us. She wants to be picked up and receive a couple of kisses on the top of her head and some petting and then she is ready to play. P-u-r-r-r Bob and Sharon 6/21/16
