The silver shaded pattern is a relatively new sensation taking the Maine Coon world by storm! In many catteries around the world, pet prices for these beauties ranges from $4000-$10,000. Many breeders are sold with the stipulation that no can use their offspring as breeders, so it is hard to find a kitten with full breeding rights. We have been able to find 2 girls, Edelweiss and Ivy, from a friend and fellow breeder and feel extremely fortunate to be able to produce kittens from them in the near future! Our pet prices for any silver shaded kittens that we produce is $4000. The deposit of $400 is the same as any other color/pattern that we sell and comes off the total price of the kitten. If you are interested in getting on this list, please call us and we will send you the paperwork to get the process started. Please leave a message and we will return your call by the end of the day.

What makes a Shaded kitten?
Genetically, shaded kittens have one or two genes for agouti (A/A or A/a). On paper, a shaded kitten looks very similar to a silver tabby.
When a shaded kitten is born, their faces should look completely white, especially in the area between the eyes and ears.
Shaded cats have hair that is tipped with black (red for a red shaded cat) rather than banded like a tabby. Only 1/3 or less of the tip of the hair should be colored. The bottom of the hair shaft should be white.
