Some breeders will say to get a Stud boy first, while some will say to get a girl first. I don’t know if there’s technically a right or wrong answer, but I can share my experience with you which might help you decide. Remember, I’m no expert but I can take you through a vault of emotions that drives me to write this post.
Which Comes First, the Boy or the Girl?
When I decided to start my journey as Maine Coon breeder, I bought a girl first. NOT THE BEST IDEA. In just a short time, she was having regular heat cycles and I found myself in a panic! Scrambling to try to find a male for her, I was even asking random strangers if they would let me use their male. LOL As you can imagine, that didn’t go over well.
