About us

About us...



My name is Jeanette Olsson and I am the holder of the Golden Shades name since the summer of 2017. Together with my husband Anders and the daughter Emma, ​​we live in a large villa located in beautiful Bromölla, (Southern Sweden).


Our cats live with us and our dog Vincent as a single big family where everyone is moving freely throughout the house. Daily excercise in our lovely garden is an appreciated feature. In winter or in bad weather, the cats have access to a catyard with a roof over the head.


The cats mean lots of us. We spend a lot of time and energy on socializing and taking care of them. What we get back is then safe and harmonious family members.


We have been familiar with the breed since 2010 when our very first MCO moved in with us. Since then, we are in love with these amazing cats. After that, we have expanded our family with another 3 Maine Coons. Exhibition is something we are passionate about and a big plus is whether future kitten buyers are curious about that world.


Breeding is carried out in a quiet and safe home environment on a small scale. The goal of my breeding is to breed racial, nice and healthy MCO that will satisfy their prospective, carefully selected families for many years to come. Nice family members with lovely temperament!


I am a member of Maine Coon-Katten, The Maine Club and in Sydkatten, which is affiliated with SVERAK.


I am constantly trying to keep up to date and fill in the supply of knowledge as often as possible.
