Kris King joined our family on August 9, 2019 after a very long voyage all the way from Ukraine! You might be wondering why we didn't just buy locally and nearby. After breeding hedgehogs for several years, I understand the importance of a healthy breeding stock free of disease, health problems, and genetic defects. Not only did I want to adopt healthy cats with amazing temperaments, but I wanted to breed Maine Coons with European Lines. The European Maine Coons are typically more "wild" looking with more distinguished facial features, a stockier build, and bigger in size. There were no breeders within the United States that had what I was looking for, but Sergey (a wonderful breeder in Ukraine) came highly recommended.
My kid's originally wanted to rename Kris to Smirnoff (where are my Stranger Things fans?) but Kris already knew his name and comes when called. Kris is an International champion cat with a huge personality and is huge in size, 15lbs at just 9 months old! He loves to meow throughtout the house looking for someone to pick him up, pet him, and tell him how handsome he is! After the devastating loss of Beatrix in July, Kris has brought some much needed happiness and laughter to our home.
Welcome home Kris!
