Welcome to Aoi Neko Maine Coons. Aoi Neko is a small hobby cattery located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in Washington State. Our Maine Coon cattery is registered with both The International Cat Association (TICA) and the Cat Fancy Association (CFA).
My cattery is name in honor of my mother, who was from Japan and my first Maine Coon, which was a blue silver mackerel tabby. As I think back even further, my very first cat ever, though not a Maine Coon, was a domestic long haired, solid blue boy, found in a shed. So my cattery name, is also in honor of my love of blue cats.
Aoi Neko (pronounced Owie Nec Oh) is Japanese for Blue Cat.
Aoi Neko Maine Coons strive to breed cats that are within the breed standard, are healthy, happy and hopefully in the dilute color of blue. Our Maine Coons are DNA tested to ensure they are free from genetic defects. Echo cardiograms and Hip x-rays are also planned when age appropriate.
This website is a constant work in progress. As the cattery grows, I will do my best to keep this page updated.
I mostly show in the Pacific Northwest Region. You may find me in a TICA show in Washington State and occasionally in Oregon or Canada. If you find yourself at a TICA show in the area, drop in and say hello.
Thank you for stopping by our Maine Coon cattery page.
