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.

Advice for kitten buyers

I feel I should post a short article on purchasing a kitten and what to look for in a good breeder. There has been an incident recently involving the sale of an under age kitten outside of the breeder recommendations with no vet check, vaccines or contract in place. Unfortunately this kitten died and it has shocked the siberian breeders here as this person is a registered breeder. I won't name names or post my feelings anymore on the subject as it would seem by me doing so it has resulted in threats. This article is not intended to pass blame, name or shame but to educate owners who are not aware of these matters. My opinion and feelings on this matter have been voiced but what I will say is owners have a right to support by the breeder they buy a kitten from. I have previously advised buying kittens only from registered breeders but I now will change that comment to ensuring they buy from a reputable breeder as being registered is not enough without the following. Please ensure you buy from someone who adheres to the breeder code of ethics which are a set of rules to help protect the kitten and buyers. They are not enforced but merely a recommendation so please don't assume they will be carried out by everyone. However the recommendations are there for a good reason to help give the kitten the best start and both parties peace of mind. Things can of course still go wrong and there are no guarantees when buying an animal but if the following is done they we have done our best. They include appropriate care and diet, worming, health check and vaccinations, animal free of disease at the time of sale and over 12 weeks of age. A sales contract and advice on diet and kitten care should be provided along with a pedigree and registration. On going care and support should there be a problem and free insurance. Other things like microchipping and neutering may be provided at extra costs depending on the breeder. It is tempting to try and get a kitten as young as possible but kittens are not emotionally equipped to fully handle the stress of rehoming until over 12 weeks old. This process is very stressful and needs to be handled carefully. Also vaccination is a big stress and to put a kitten through starting vaccines when they have only just been rehomed is not a good idea. Some animals cannot handle vaccines as well as others and so by keeping the kitten until after they have been vaccinated ensures to some degree that they are fit and well enough to cope with the stress of rehoming and more importantly protected against potential disease. A good breeder should not let a kitten go with known issues so sometimes it means you may not get your kitten at 13 weeks if the breeder feels they need more time to recover. I have been questioned in the past for holding onto kittens a week or so longer for this very reason. There is alot more to a good breeder than I have time to discuss here and caring about the welfare of the kittens and putting their needs over your own is important. A lot of hard work goes into breeding and no one is perfect. Things can and do go wrong even with the best intentions but it is the breeders responsibility to try and rectify these issues not dismiss them or pass blame to the owner or vet etc. I am trying to educate people so they don't fall victim to this happening to them and it is a sad state of affairs. It is too late for many kittens but if the public choose only to buy from reputable breeders who abide by the above hopefully we can reduce the number of cases of this happening. We are not gods but mere human beings and no one wants to see bad things happen but we must accept responsibility for our actions and learn from them. I hope a lesson has been learned here. I have been accused of bullying for having a passion and caring about the welfare of animals when it would be much easier to keep quiet. I am saddened by this comment yet i stand by what I have said in that I do not condone the sale of under age kittens without vaccines and a health check and if this upsets people then I am sorry.
