Welcome to the home of the Gentle Giants!
We are excited to bring to you our website regarding all things Maine Coon…more specifically all things AURYN Maine Coons, located under the shadows of the Wasatch Mountain Range of the Rocky Mountains of Utah. We are a small, hobbyist breeder and our cattery specializes in the development and strengthening of the Solid Black, Solid Blue and Classic Black/Silver Tabby (Blotched) color lines within the Maine Coon family.
Our love for the breed has developed over the years…a combination of seeing them live in the cat show arenas and having had the privilege of transporting them around the world as a pet transporter has added to the admiration and respect we have for these regal creatures. There is also something special about the fact that they are one of a very few breeds that originated in the Northeastern corner of the United States, although their history possibly goes as far back as the ancient Vikings. No one really knows for sure!
We are a “show cat” family. Our cats are shown within the structure of The International Cat Association (TICA) but we have plans to show in the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) sometime in the future, just to make things interesting.
Please take a few minutes to look around, read about our history and peruse the many pictures and videos we proudly present to you here.
