Greetings, I’m Donna Hinton residing
GP, RW Coonsboro’s Mario “Indy” Coondretti
in Peace dear friend, 1990-2007
Walker with me, my first National Winning Cat
|I started showing and raising these
beautiful cats, when I acquired my very first
Maine Coon, GP, RW Coonsboro’s Mario “Indy”
Coondretti, while living in the Chicago,
Illinois. Indy was an incredible cat and at that
time, we knew Maine Coons would become a part of
our life. I grew up in New Jersey, with a racing
family, loved NASCAR racing and in 1993 “Nascat”
cattery was established after showing Indy in
the Alter class for 3 years as a fancier.
continue to name the cats with phrases or names
having anything to do with the exciting,
fascinating world of fine automotive machines
I have shown my cats in The Cat Fanciers
Association (CFA), The International Cat
Association (TICA) and American Cat Fanciers
Association (ACFA). I am a full breeder member
of the Maine Coon Breeders Association MCBFA and
the CFA Maine Coon Breed Council. My cats are
bred to CFA and TICA standards. They are
consistent with large boned, long bodies with a
sweet yet wild, feral look. Females average
10-14 lbs, while males range from 16 to 20+
lbs., with a few males tipping the scales like
Breaker at 24 lbs.
My kittens are raised underfoot with a family
environment in our large 4000 square foot home.
This provides the outgoing and wonderful
temperament ideal for both pet and show.
My breeding program focuses on health. The
pedigree and health history of each cat is
chosen carefully and screened to promote,
protect and preserve the Maine Coon breed. This
is done with yearly echo-cardiograms on all
breeding cats. All cats are DNA negative for the
MyBPC3 HCM gene and negative for the SMA (Spinal
Musculature Atrophy) gene.
