Welcome to the website for Lykken Maine Coon.
This is Lykken Solomon
I have been breeding Maine Coon since 2000. We chose the Maine Coon cats because of their nice and wild look and because they are great companions with exciting characters. They are very social and make wonderful partners for human beeings!
Our goal has been to make kittens with outstanding temper and health! We have been working on broadening the gene-pool for the race. To achieve this we had several cats from new foundation lines as part of our breeding program. Our foundation lines are from Maine, Michigan, Florida and southern part of Canada. Our belief has been that OUTCROSSING is very important. All breeding plans are made carefully, trying to get healthy kittens with great personality and also type.
After my husbond Jørgen passed away, I am trying to carry on with the cattery and breeding plans, but in a small scale. The cattery name is still LYKKEN.
I give the cats lots of attention and they are a part in all that is going on.I try to be very careful selecting our breeding cats, so that the best and most healthy individuals is choosen for breeding . All breeding cats are tested for HCM at regular intervals . All our breeding cats have been tested negtive for DNA MYPBC3 -gene that may cause HCM. All breeding cats are tested for HD (hip dysplasia). They are aso thested for other genetic diseases such as PL ( patella luxation) and SMA . There will only be sold breeding kittens to catteries with the same breeding goals and who have a test program for genetic diseases. Our kittens are raised "under foot" with lots of love and respect. Most of our kittens are sold as pets in Denmark . Occasionally we ship ( quite expensive from Denmark though ) to other countries . Bying a cat from me , you will of course be welcome to come to my place to pick up your cat . We have offspring from our cats living in Norway, Sweden, Holland , Germany, Great Britain, France, Belgium, Finland, U.S.A and Egypt .
The females live inside the house with access to a safe outdoor run (20 sq. m) The males have got their own "males house" with their own outdoor yard situated so that the males cannot see or smell the females, as I think this is the best for a "whole" male. Normalley they get along with each other very well.

All the adult cats in our cattery are vaccinated at regular intervals . We are a Felv / Fiv neg cattery . All the cats have an annual vet. check and will at proper age be examined for HD and HCM.
