''But I began to professionally breed cats in 2002, I have been working directly with Maine Coons since 2004. I like what I do, I can say that cats are my calling.

"Each breeder has his own vision of the breed and selects individuals for further selection according to those traits that are important to him.

''I can say that while working with the breed, I focused on the type of Maine Coon that I like, that's why I now have a recognizable 'face' type of kittens in my nursery.

''This is just a long painstaking work of the breeder.I love all animals, especially cats. Maine Coons captured my heart completely.''
