Who We Are
Marikoons is a small cattery owned and
operated by Jeannie & Bob Marikle located in
the Seaport Area of Mystic. We do this as a
hobby, it’s quality not quantity that is
important to us with health being our #1
priority. We are dedicated to breeding
healthy, happy cats with loving personalities
that meet the TICA breed standard as closely
as possible.
All of our breeding cats starting at around 1
years of age are tested regularly every 1 to 2
years for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
(HCM) by a Board Certified Cardiologist. We
also use DNA testing as well. Please note
screening for HCM through DNA as well as
heart echo is currently the recommended
method to aid in reducing the occurrence of
this condition, while no breeder can
guarantee that their cat will not develop this
condition, we at Marikoons can guarantee
that we are diligent in screening our cats
making effort to produce healthy cats.
In continuing our efforts to produce the
heathiest cats we can, we also DNA test all
of our breeding cats for Erythrocyte Pyruvate
Kinase Deficiency known as PK Deficiency. To

In order for cats to look their best on the
outside it’s important to what goes in the
inside. Here at Marikoons we constantly try
to learn as much as we can about food
ingredients, what is important and what to
avoid. We look at many brands of cat food
and make recommendations as to what we
feel is the best choice to feed our cats (in
our opinion). 
We also feed raw that we make ourselves.
This we feel is the BEST and most natural
food to feed and we include more
information in our
 section of our
web site.
