Grand Champion Cheeptrills Silverado, "The Gentle Giant"

Thank you for visiting our cattery, located in beautiful Corpus Christi, Texas. We have a lovely litter born February 21st, 1999, but there is a waiting list for these kittens. However, if you think you might be interested in one of these babies, we'll be happy to contact you if somebody drops off the waiting list. The sire of this litter is SGC Ryanplace Boy Toy of KenKoon, and the dam is Coonmora Tempest of Cheeptrills. Both Boy Toy and Tempest's pictures and pedigrees may be seen from our "Meet the Cats" page. Additionally, here are some links to assist you in your search for the kitten of your dreams: The Maine Coon Breeders and Fanciers (MCBFA) breeder list, the MCBFA Kitten Bank, a list of Maine Coon breeders with retired adults available, and a worldwide list of Maine Coon breeders. All of these lists include email and homepage links.

This page is divided into several sections, all of which are referenced on the left. Few of these pages have links to anything else but our other articles and this page (so you won't get hopelessly tangled up in the web!). If you do follow a link to another site, you can return here by hitting the "Back" arrow on your browser.

If you have any questions about Maine Coons or cats in general, please feel free to e-mail us.

If you'd like to put your cats' pedigrees on your website but don't know how, here's a pedigree form you are welcome to copy and use. If you don't know how to copy code, here's how: bring up the page you want to copy, click on "File" on your browser, then on "Save As." Give it a name and save it on your hard drive. Then you can edit it however you like (I recommend Netscape Navigator Gold's "wysiwyg" editor, unless you are familiar with html programming) and upload it to your ISP. (Please note that this pedigree form is designed to be used on websites, not as hard-copy, although it can be printed in landscape mode.)

      "If a man does not keep pace
      with his companions,
      perhaps it is because he
      hears a different drummer.
      Let him step to the music which he hears,
      however measured or far away."
      Henry David Thoreau
