Heirs to the Throne
Please visit our Facebook page for litter announcements and possible available kittens!
Kittens featured on this page have been placed in loving homes.
Because we don't accept deposits before kittens are born like most, Kitten reservations are confirmed between 6-8 weeks with a "non-refundable deposit" and released to new parents at approximately 15-16 weeks. Before departing, kittens are 100% litter box trained, successfully using a vertical scratching post, and are ready to assimiliate into pre-approved homes by meeting all appropriate developmental and behaviorial milestones. Before departure, they have completed a series of critically important high quality kitten Vaccinations, received all preventative
de-worming and appropriate Merial Purevax Rabies 1-year vaccine (the safest and most reliable) and have passed a comprehensive health certification involving blood testing and complete physical exam by a Licensed Veterinarian just prior to going home. The equivalent cost of 3 -4 vet visits at minimum go into the health provision of each Maine Coon kitten. If the mother of the litter is faced with any birthing, lactating, and hormonal issues in the 6 month period of breeding/gestation through the completion of raising her offspring, additional vet care is often a considerable expense absorbed by the ethical breeder, not tacked on as additional fees. Eye infections and intestinal bacterial infections are a reality sometimes in kitten rearing due to rowdy playing in litterboxes and poking each other in the eyes. In many cases, if one kitten becomes ill, they may all have to be treated. All health issues requiring veterinarian care prior to placement are included in the adoption fee. Families who reserve a kitten are updated on the kittens’ progress as it develops, and photos & videos are shared on social media and individually.

By law, kittens placed within the State of FL include an Official Intrastate Certificate of Veterinary Inspection pursuant to section 828.29 Florida Statutes . Out of State kittens receive an Interstate Certificate of Veterinary Inspection. Certification is executed on behalf of the buyer and guarantees the kitten has been tested and comprehensively examined, according to the requirements of the State, by a licensed veterinarian who certifies health and approves placement. Florida Statute 828.29 (9) states “an animal may not be determined unfit for sale on account of an injury or illness contracted AFTER the consumer takes possession of the animal.” No need to worry about hidden or undisclosed health issues before picking up, we also screen for ringworm and heartworms and have never had a case, nor Feline Leukemia or FelineAids. Certifications may be verified by calling our vet whom we share contact information immediately following.
Placement is DELAYED or cancelled if a serious health issue is discovered during development and/or health certification. RoyalLions reserves the right to cancel a reservation at any time if a person becomes difficult to work with, is deemed “unstable or unsuitable in caring for the kitten”, or if the future home poses a risk.
The Breeder reserves the right to cancel the reservation of a kitten who develops into a Breeder/Show Quality Cat they would like to retain for the breeding program, the individual may be moved to the top of the next available litter and their full deposit is returned immediately. If you want to do your homework on us, veterinarian and owner references are available on request. We have many who have a number of our Maine Coons, the Moores in Sarasota have 4, Biddenbaughs of Lakeland have 4, Dr. Masiello in Tampa has 3, Donna Thomas in Chicago has 3, and the Sammits of Palm Beach have 8! We are proud to have the most qualified "extended family" of Royals!
