How to Adopt Maine Coon Kittens/ Cats
What We Do
Cats and Kittens for Adoption with Kittycoons Cattery
Kittens for adoption with KittyCoons Cattery Looking to adopt a kitten? Kittens arrive at our cattery from various places and with varying needs – from those that have been abandoned to those that are born in our care if their mother is a stray.
While kittens can be cute to look at, they need additional care and patience from their owners. They are likely to be more energetic than older cats too – something worth thinking about before you consider kittens for adoption.

HOW CAN I ADOPT A KITTEN OR CAT?
Adopting a cat with Kittycoons Cattery is a three-step process. First, you’ll need to find a pet amongst our available cats or kittens. Then, you’ll be contacted by one of our breeders and they’ll take you through the process of meeting the cat and adopting them. You can find out more about choosing a cat in our guide.

We are a Closed Cattery, we do not permit visitors to our Cattery. That means we DO NOT allow pending Purrever Families to come visit. This is for the safety of the kittens we have in our Nursery and our own, especially during peak Flu & Covid Seasons. Thanks for understanding.

I LIVE IN AN APARTMENT, CAN I ADOPT A CAT?
If you live somewhere with minimal access to the outdoors, you may still be able to adopt a cat. Cats that have to remain indoors for health issues such as poor vision or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) still make great companions. Some older or more timid cats can often live as an indoor cat very successfully. There are products that can be used to screen windows so that you can safely provide your cat with fresh air. Remember to never let your cat out onto a narrow ledge or balcony, as heights are a risk for all animals.
I LIVE NEAR A MAIN ROAD. CAN I ADOPT A CAT?
All cats are different and you may find that you’re still able to adopt a cat in this circumstance. Talk through your situation with someone from your local branch or centre and they’ll be able to advise you further. For example, they may have a cat that would suit an indoor lifestyle or who will be happy staying close to home.
WOULD IT BE BETTER TO ADOPT A MALE OR FEMALE CAT?
Both male and female cats make great pets and there are only a few differences between them. The main differences between the genders are:
- males are usually slightly larger than females
- unneutered males can develop habits such as wandering away from home, urine spraying and fighting
- unneutered females can be very vocal when they come into season. They can also become pregnant early in their lives
This is why Cats Protection will neuter all cats, both males and females, before they go home (or in the case of young kittens provide the new owners with the means to neuter via a local vet as soon as the kitten is big enough). Neutering is a kind act as it prevents many unwanted behaviours and unwanted kittens.
Wondering whether you should get a male or female cat if you already have a cat at home? If you have a neutered and sociable male cat, a young neutered female may be the best choice to avoid conflict.
CAN I ADOPT A CAT IF I HAVE CHILDREN?
This depends completely on the cat’s character. Some cats can integrate particularly well into families, while others will be nervous around children. Cats Protection will discuss with you which cats in care would be most likely to settle with children. There are great benefits for children growing up with cats – having a pet can teach them compassion as well as a sense of responsibility. Find out more about adopting a cat with young children in our guide.
