About Us

Pinecoon Maine Coons is a Seattle-area cattery, jointly owned and operated by Betsy and David Tinney. We have been breeding and showing Maine Coons since 1988.

We are a small home cattery; our cats are, first and foremost, our pets and family members.

  • Pinecoon Maine Coons was a full breeder member of MCBFA (the Maine Coon Breeders and Fanciers Association) from 1990 until late 2012 (when we stopped breeding). MCBFA is a cross-registration, worldwide association of Maine Coon breeders and fanciers whose stated goal is "the promotion and protection of the Maine Coon Cat". MCBFA breeder members must sign and adhere to a strict code of ethics. For many years, Betsy served as chairperson of the MCBFA's Ethics Committee.

  • Pinecoon Maine Coons holds a hobby cattery license issued by King County in the state of Washington (license #0434674). To qualify for a King County license, a cattery must meet stringent requirements regarding animal care, cattery construction, number of animals, and adherence to local zoning laws, and must be inspected annually by a license inspector. Each of our cats is also licensed individually with King County.



Pinecoon Maine Coons and TICA

We show our cats mainly in TICA (The International Cat Association), and are proud of our many TICA show winners.

For many years, Betsy served on TICA's Maine Coon breed committee (an elected position).
