In love with the breed of Maine Coon for several years, we decided with a lot of pleasure and motivation, in 2013, to embark on the family breeding adventure. Indeed, we have been won over by the charm of this breed, considered as the world's biggest cat, which is rightly surnamed "the sweet giant".
Ulsan'Ora, our small cattery, is located in the Liège area, in Belgium, and approved by the Public Service of Wallonia (Animal Wellbeing) under the number HK02600289. It is also is registered at the Fédération internationale Féline (FiFé) under the number 20150232, and also at the World Cat Federation (WCF). We are members of the Felis Belgica, which is member of FiFé, and we are also members of OFB, Organisation Féline Belge, which is also member of the World Cat Federation.
The health of our cats and their kittens is a priority for us. Besides a high-quality food and the usual veterinary cares, proceed to more detailed health checks before envisaging a mating, because the maine coon is prone to certain diseases.
So, our cats are tested for:
✓ HCM (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) by DNA and scan ;
✓ PKD (polycystic kidney disease) by scan ;
✓ SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) by DNA ;
✓ FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) and FeLV (feline leukemia virus) by DNA ;
✓ PL (patellar luxation) by scan ;
✓ HD (hips dysplasia) by scan.
Our cats are considered as family members and share our daily life on our side. They also can benefit from a secured outdoor place.
