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.

litter E1 arrives

Quick note to say yakiras kittens were birn yesterday. She was very good at the delivery and did it all herself. However she seems to think my bed is the best place for them so has had to be moved into the birthing room which she is still trying to adjust to.
we have 5 apparently healthy kittens. 3 girls in a mix of silver and brown tabby and 2 brown tabby boys. All good birth weights. Puctures to follow when she is more settled.

Retiring cats needing homes

I will be looking for new homes for 4 of my girls this year.  All  are retiring either due to age or not being suitable for future breeding. As previously mentioned I will be looking to bring in new bloodlines and so must make tough decisions to retire cats that have similar pedigrees to others.

First cat to retire....
Adrienne
She will be 5 yrs old next year and I was going to let her have one last litter but as I will be short on space it is wiser to retire her now as she has had kittens this year and I have her lines in her granddaughters cleo and crystal.  Adrienne is a loving lap cat who enjoys lots of attention.  She would be best suited to an active homes with children (over the age of 7 yrs ideally) where there are people home for most of the day. She must not be allowed to free roam outside.  If you can offer her a home please contact me with information about yourself. She will be available from the middle of october 2016. please do not let her fierce wild look put you off she is a real softee



Podiva
I will be retiring podiva early next year once she has had her kittens.  She is now 3 yrs old but does not enjoy being around other cats so i feel it better for her to go to a quiet home as an only pet.  She is a loving cat who enjoys attention she is just not keen on restrictive long cuddles.  She prefers sitting next to you to be stroked.  She should be fine in a family home providing they are not planning on getting more cats.  Also she must be indoor. 



Yakira
Daughter to podiva I will also be retiring her early next year.  She however is a little different to her mum.  She is ok with other cats but not that keen on lots of attention.  She is much better around people when no other animals are around otherwise she will choose to bond with the animals instead.  She is quite upset easily so would need a quiet home with an experienced owner and no children.  She hates being left alone so the person would ideally be someone retired or part time at work. Once she knows you she enjoys attention but does not like restricted cuddling.  She is also very vocal and likes to talk.  She may take alittle longer to settle in a new home She is only a baby at 15 months but i feel she is better in a home where someone can build up her confidence and give her more attention. She will also be available early next year.




Dinara
She will be retiring after her last litter early next year.  She is currently 5.5 yrs old and has contributed greatly to my program over the years.  A great cat and mother.  She gets on well with other cats and  enjoys attention but is quite sensitive of loud noises so would not be happy in a noisy home with children. Other pets ideally cats is not an issue providing they have  a calm and similar temperament and there are not too many.  Bold personalities may upset this quiet girl. She will also be available early next year.


If you are interested in adopting any of these girls please feel free to contact me...allare purebred siberians with pedigrees who  must go to indoor only homes and a contract of care signed before adoption. Any questions please contact me. Adoption price will be less than a kitten but will vary between each cat

Our prince and princesses in waiting

So far this year we have had some lovely kittens and it is always hard to resist keeping them. It is a commonly asked question 'How do you manage to let the kittens go, are you not sad and I would have to keep them all'.....Well to answer that yes it is sad but you learn over the years to tell yourself that you are a foster carer for these babies until their new owners can take them home.  Having a waiting list also helps as you know the homes are just waiting.As all people are vetted I can be confident knowing they will be taken care of to the standard I expect I am probably more sad to let the long term adults go as they may have been with you many years, however the cats happiness must come first.  As a social breed they deserve a home with lots of attention something they cannot get here when there are other cats and kittens about.
It is not realistic to keep all cats whether kittens or retired cats and so you have to be quite  grown up about your decisions so you do the right thing by the cats you do keep.  However sometimes you just see a kitten that wows you and get talked into keeping them....That is what has happened here with some of these kittens like Arlo. Others I kept to carry on parents lines.
You also have to look at the cats you have and decide when to bring in fresh bloodlines.  This year I will be retiring the majority of my original cats and the kittens I kept last year...Why??? Because some are getting on now and need to retire and others are not right in breeding for various reasons.  So at the end of the year I will be hopefully bringing into my cattery 3 new import cats. 1 male from France and 2 females from Russia, They are all cats with traditional pedigrees and no colourpoint in lines. The new cats will help inject fresh new blood into my traditional breeding helping ensure diversity and health.  I will be keeping a select few of my cats from this year.

So here are the kittens I have chose to keep this year so far......

Zen
daughter of Dahlia and Zhenda.... she is a stunning girl of large size and quite a bold confident character. Never still for more than five minutes, she currently lives with fighter my neuter male in my boyfriends home whilst i am busy with kittens. She will come back home soon. This is zen as a baby....... warm golden brown mackerel tabby


Arlo
Son of Narcyza and Rasputin.  I had not intended to keep this boy and was going to let him go abroad as a breeding male but after much discussion and persuasion from my boyfriend i decided he was too rare to sell and I kept him.  He will take over daddy when he retires next year.  Arlo is a rare and beautiful red silver shaded who will hopefully produce lovely silver shaded kittens in future. He has a wonderful character, very loving, always purring and confident.  Everything you could want in a male kitten for breeding.  I look forward to his offspring in 2017. He has a complete colourpoint free traditional pedigree.


Cleo and Crystal
Daughter of Xara and Max.  Both these cats have retired and i had intended to keep a daughter however i Could not decide between the two silver girls.  Cleo is  darker silver but tarnish free slightly better type than her sister and slightly longer coat.  Crystal is the lighter silver and extremely pretty also.  She has a great clear colour.  Both sisters have wonderful temperaments and should be beautiful cats when grown.  





Kitten plans end of 2016

We are nearly approaching the end of the year and also the end of our matings.  We have had to adjust plans as the cats have not always wanted to have babies when i did so the litters will vary slighty from the plans i listed earlier in the year. All our girls have managed to get pregnant and will hopefully have healthy litters. However one girl wilhelmina lost her babies and had to be spayed.  It is very sad and it is the first time anything like that has happened so was very saddening, so unfortunately there will be no babies from this cat.

Future end of year kittens
September/October
However the good news is that Yakira will be having her babies any day now and I am hoping all goes well.....

Her mum podiva is also due to have babies but in the middle of october.  Father to both these litter is Rasputin.

Expecting some silver kittens from both matings.  These 2 girls will probably retire after this litter.

October/November

Dinara is also pregnant and will have her babies at the end of october, This will be her last litter.  Daddy is Rasputin again.

Sophie is also pregnant and due beginning of November a few days after dinara. Daddy is zhenda

Both Dinara and Sophie should have had kittens 2 months ago but did not get pregnant so it will mean kittens here over christmas and going in february next year. I normally like to have a break around christmas until march with no kittens but this will not be the case this year so please be patient with me when contacting me. I will be extremely busy with 5 litters in the house until December and then 4 litter until early next year. I will not be doing allergy sittings for this reason


All kittens will first be offered to our waiting list.  I closed the list around may time because it was getting very full and as half of my girls were new to breeding i did not know for sure if they would conceive.  Once all the above litters are born I can then look towards opening it again for a small handful of people as I should have kittens left over. I will announce here when that is very soon... please check back


Litter D1 3wks old

Well time has flown by. Lots to keep me busy with this lot.  All 7 babies are doing great.  They are now at the age where they are becoming more mobile, starting to play, learn to use the litter tray and eat by themselves. They are now in a slightly bigger pen until they are toilet trained when they will move into the nursery normally around 6 weeks. The pen keeps them safe until they are able to climb and jump hence why it is quite minimal with no climbing posts etc. It is open at the top so mum can escape for some time out when needed.  She tends to leave them on there own more now to teach them about frustration and so they can learn to cope with it when older.  A very important aspect of learning for kittens so you end up with calm, well mannered cats who do not attack you as is seen with hand reared kittens in cases where they have no contact with adult cats. Vodka has been amazing and although this is her first litter she takes it all in her stride. I have managed to get some snap shots of them.  The photos are quite poor quality as they do not sit still at this age.  I will be posting better individual pictures along with names in the next few weeks when they will be available to my waiting list for reservation.
Here are a few pictures to enjoy in the meantime.....
