To adopt a Lucki Maine Coon kitten your first step is to complete our kitten application. The application is open to submit when we have kittens that are open for reservation. You will receive an email noting that we’ve received your application to respond to. We ask that you respond so we know that you are still interested. Please note, sometimes it may take us a few days to respond to your application.
After you receive an email confirming that your application was received and approved we will set up a phone call interview. On this call you can expect for us to go over your application, ask a few more questions about you, and you will get the opportunity to ask us as well.
The moment you’ve been waiting for, reserving your Lucki Maine Coon kitten. Kittens are available for reservation after 4 weeks of age. Please note, we do work through applications and complete interviews as received. We do allow our current kitten families to pick first if they’ve expressed interest prior to pick day. To reserve your kitten, you will receive our contract to review and fill out then we will take the deposit. The deposit is $600, this will come out of the final price of the kitten. If at anytime we feel that a person is unfit for one of our kittens their deposit will be refunded and their contract will be voided.
Lucki Maine Coon kittens can start to go home after 16 weeks. We prefer that pickup/delivery arrangements are made by 12 weeks. Kittens that will be flying to their new homes are only to be flown in cabin with their new owner (You) or us (Lucki Maine Coons). Kittens are not allowed to be flown in cargo or driven ground transport cargo. Kittens will only be released to the approved owner on the signed contract unless approved prior.
The special day comes faster than you may think. We recommend pre-scheduling your new Maine Coon kitten’s first vet appointment and purchasing at least one 4lb bag of their kitten food. Purchasing food they are already eating will help ensure a smooth and easy transition at home. We prefer for the kittens to stay on their original food but, we understand if this needs to be changed.
The day has arrived, your new Maine Coon kitten is coming home. We recommend to have a clean and new carrier just for them for your ride home. On this day you will also need to start their free 30 day insurance plan.
The difference between the two is that ‘Poly” refers to polydactylism, polydactyl Maine Coons have an extra amount of digits on each paw. The International Cat Association (TICA) groups Maine Coons that are not polydactyl and Maine Coons that are polydactyl separately, hence Maine Coon & Maine Coon Poly. You may see breeders that have both refer to the non-polydactyl as straight or standard paw. We refer to them as Maine Coon or Maine Coon Poly, as you can see above Controversy and Paisley Park are both Maine Coon Poly kittens, they have extra digits on all four paws. Their mother Katniss passed this trait to them, she is polydactyl on all four of her paws with 6 digits on each. It is important to note, polydactylism in Maine Coons is not a harmful trait, it is said to be naturally occurring in the Maine Coon breed. We have personally not experienced any ill effects of the polydactyl gene in our Maine Coons.
Perhaps you may be interested in showing your future Maine Coon kitten? One of the cutest things in a show hall in our opinion is a Maine Coon kitten! They are so fun and full of energy, you really get to see their personalities shine bright. It’s not a requirement for any future Maine Coon owners or breeders, though it can be a great experience. If you are looking to show your kitten, you may look into breeders that show their Maine Coons. They will be able to offer great mentorship and pick out the “perfect” kitten. If you are applying for one of our kittens, please indicate your interests. This will help us pick the right kitten not only in type but also based off of their temperament & personality in hopes that we can pick a kitten that enjoys to show.
