How to register a Foundation Maine Coon 


IF YOU HAVE LOCATED a Maine Coon of unknown origin, it is still possible to register it. Contact 
The American Cat Association for a registration application. The fee is $7 . Fill in the spaces 
that you have accurate information for, name of cat, colour, sex and date of birth (if known, 
if not an estimated date). Be sure to identify it as a Maine Coon where the form asks for the 
breed. Under Sire and dam, if unknown, write 'unknown' in each and every line available. Send 
with the fee and the resulting registration number will be the start of the pedigree for its 
offspring.  

The American Cat Association is the oldest cat registration in the United States. Although small, 
it is recognized for official documentation of cat pedigrees by all other associations. Because 
of the ability to register with the ACA and transfer later to other organizations, the cats 
first bred and registered with the ACA, can then find their rightful place in the show ring 
and within the world-wide recognition of the breed as a whole.
