Welcome to Orrono Maine Coons

A litter of 6 kittens on a grey background

We are hobby breeders of beautiful solid and smoke Maine Coons, based in north Birmingham.

We are a neurodivergent and LGBTQ+ safe space, and we welcome enquiries and owners from all communities and backgrounds. 

We are a HCM (gene tested), SMA, PK Def, FeLV and FIV negative cattery. Our cats are tested through Langford Lab in Bristol.

Our cats live in our home, with love and cuddles on tap. Our kittens are socialised with children and the majority of our kittens have gone to family homes with other pets. We have kittens all over the UK and in Denmark, we are happy to assist in organising transport for kitten homes. 

We fell in love with Maine Coons in 2012 and began our mentoring journey with the now retired Camershancoons. We have been lucky enough to be owned by the breed since 2013. We have shown our cats since 2016, showing initially with GCCF and moved to TICA and LCWW in 2021. We love chatting to people at shows so do come and say hi!

Our breeding programme focuses mainly on producing smoke kittens in every colour. We often breed kittens with white paws and bellies and occasionally breed tabbies. Our breeding focuses on producing health and well-typed kittens that meet the Breed Standard and True Type; that is kittens that emulate the look of the original Maine Coons. Our kittens leave us with sweet, loving, bonkers personalities that will have you in fits of laughter. We do not breed for size. 

Orrono was registered with GCCF and TICA in 2017, and LCWW in 2022. We are breeder members of the Maine Coon Cat Club. We are graduates of the internationally recognised PawPeds breeding courses G1, G2 and G3 breeding courses. We are the 3rd cattery in the UK and the only GCCF & LCWW cattery to hold all 3 PawPeds qualifications.
