Wonderful pedigree Siberian kittens sometimes available to loving INDOOR ONLY homes.
To go on my waiting list you will be required to pay a non refundable deposit of £100 to secure a place. (this comes off the overall cost of a kitten). On choosing your kitten a further £100 is required to reserve them and the balance payable on collection.
Sorry I no longer accept waiting list enquiries without a deposit.
Please contact me via my website !

Allergy testing available on request for a small fee

WARNING! Scammers on free advertising sites selling so called pedigree kittens for cheap, do not approach these people and go only to a registered breeder. I have also noticed people selling very young unvaccinated, unregistered kittens for cheap on these sites, again these type of kittens do not make great pets and are far to young to be rehomed, they most likely won't be purebred siberians either!

Information on my website 'adopting a kitten page' on why you should choose a reputable, registered breeder.

Kittens available!

I am writing to let people know that unfortunately due to time wasters on my list there will definitely be kittens available from my second litter due in 3 weeks. Please contact me for information, there may even be the odd kitten left from this current litter depending on who stays on the list.

Please DO NOT ask to be placed on my waiting list if you are not serious about adopting a kitten from me and prepared to wait. Serious enquiries only from people who are devoted to the breed who will provide loving, permanent homes. If you are no longer able to stay on the list for whatever reason this is fine but please let me know, I am far too busy to be chasing people via email.

I currently do not charge to be placed on my waiting list but if I continue to be inundated by time wasters I will be forced to charge a non refundable fee to be placed on the list. It is very inconvenient for me but also unfair on others I have turned away because I had too many people waiting.

  1. I never keep a waiting list more an enquiry list and if people don't respond to an email in 48hrs then I delete them as they have moved on. I have been stung this year with a potential owner paying deposit emailing non-stop from the time the kittens were born till able to be viewed and then, heard nothing and then we had the request please could you hold the kitten for a few more weeks as I need to neuter my other kitten, instint told me we were going to be messed around so we pulled out, sad thing is the boy could have been homed if we had not taken the deposit as we were having enquiries then they all dried up and my website was drawing nothing in. No real great way to do it, other than to advertise litters at four/six weeks and take a £100 deposit maybe???

    Best of luck with the kittens.

  2. thanks for that advice Wayne, it is frustrating when only two months ago people wanted to be placed on the list knowing full well kittens were due, then they have either gone elswhere or what is even stranger is gone and bought a completely different breed? I just dont understand some people, if they cant have it now then they take the one that comes up first. I think maybe better to say to people when I have a litter expected and to email me again around that time and those that do are more than welcome to then go on list. People are just so impatient and fickle sometimes. Im wasting my time emailing people who have not contacted me for weeks who like you say are probably not interested anymore. It would just be nice to have homes lined up before they are born, I don't know maybe im expecting too much.lol

  3. It seems to be an epidemic this year....have never had this many! two people asked me specially for a black amd when one appeared one had bought a brown tabby!!! and the other said they were too far to travel..i still have him!!
    I have had people come over and then offered less money as they are going on holiday/planning a wedding...perhaps need to get their priorities right!! I think it could be a symptom of the supermarket age...

  4. It is worrying Shirley, I know they have only just been born but I would like to know people are serious. When the cats were mated I had enough people waiting to rehome them all, now I will be lucky to have enough for one litter. Ellie is due in 3 weeks also and I think she has a fair few as she is getting quite big. Not much interest recently apart from two people who both say they will wait but for how long, who knows? As for offering you a lower price like some object, what a joke. I can't compare to other years really as I only had one kitten to sell.lol so I didnt care if I got enquiries or not. Gus went to the perfect owner who waited, knew what she wanted from a breeder and did not care how long it took for her to have a baby from me, god why can't everyone be like that hey ;-)

  5. Clare I have a nearing 7 month boy who is going to be a huge lad from one of my Birman girls, I can see me practically giving him away, and then I have a CP Siberian, and three other Birmans still looking for homes and the enquiries I have had this week have been about whether I will take an offer. I think you will need to be very savy with advertising and also promotion from an early age. Best of luck!

  6. Well I always try and advertise early and will do my best to promote them in the best light. It is worrying that you still have a boy at 7 months of age, you would think people would jump at the chance of a cat from a reputable breeder. I think maybe some less than reputable people are selling so called pedigrees alot cheaper and giving the impression people can offer what they like. I have alot of info on my site about these type of people and why you SHOULD NOT buy from them yet I think some people are really clueless when it comes to picking a good breeder, they probably think everyone is good, it is very frustrating sometimes trying to get that to sink in with owners, after all you get what you pay for in life wheter it be a pet or an item of clothing.

  7. Clare, I'm really sorry to hear this. I do agree that there are kittens being offered at 'knock-down' prices - and so then people can think they can 'haggle'. I'm afraid that for me - thats not right - these are little lives - not a piece of furniture or whatever. I know times are hard for many, but really - I think its a bit much to haggle the price of a life. I'm sure that you'll find good homes for these babies and for Ellie's - Some people just don't want to wait - they haven't got any patience - I think though that it would be good manners if they let a breeder know. If I have anyone contact me - I'll be sure to pass on your details - :)

  8. Hi Lesley, thanks for that, I am sure I will find homes but what worries me is the fact even if they put names down on a list theres no guarantees they will eventually take one so I could think I have homes for them until last minute and then it could all fall through. They are young/still in mummies tummy so I have plenty of time to advertise. I was placing adverts last night and saw quite a few siberian kittens for sale for as little as £200, that is extremely cheap, one litter didnt even look like them, more moggies and short haired at that, they were brown tabbies. To the untrained eye some mogs can look very similar to siberians and I worry owners will fall for it. You can imagine clueless owners falling for that old line well they are cheap because they aren't registered crap, well they aren't registered because there not even pedigrees more like. It then makes £500 look very expensive, when we are doing everything rightand selling pedigree cats, its no wonder people are haggling the price down, well no matter how desperate I am for homes, anyone who tries that with me will be turned down flat whether they then agree to pay the full price or not. I expect a high standard of care from owners and if they are trying to save money even before they get the cat then god knows what they will be like when they have a kitten. It is very worrying that people see them as objects when like you say they are little lives who will hopefully be loving members of their family for many years to come.
