    your probably sick of listening to me moaning about my search for a maine coon :rolleyes:: but weve seen atleast 3 adoreable kitties now and have missed them because of the distance. im happy to drive around 3 hours away from wales but some ive seen in london, bristol scotland theyre just too far :confused:

    is there any kind off service you can pay for to safely collect a kitty?? if so how much?xxx

    ive just looked up "maine coon wales" in google search and there are loads of breeders websites you could look at.. One of them http://www.mainecoons.org.uk/ looks pretty promising :)

    Just a thought,you may find a reputable,reliable courier to transport a kitten for you,but you may not be as lucky to find a reputable breeder willing to allow a kitten to go to a new home without having first met the new prospective owner.I would personally want to meet the breeder and see the kittens before deciding to buy ,but then I have made a mistake in the past and may be a bit too wary.

    with couriers they have to be DEFRA registered, I have used 3 different couriers, and they can be anything from £100-400, Im guessing your looking at about £200? but cant guess.

    You can always ask the breeder that ifyou pay the petrol to come to your house and meet you half way? I have asked that as I cant travel far, Ive only ever had 1 person say no, but then we get to know eachother on the phone & email beforehand.

    I can give you the links to 2 of the couriers that I have used? If you like?

    They are really stunning MCs look like proper nice ones!
