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.

I also give all my kittens a comprehensive kitten pack containing super premium quality food, cat litter, blanket and toys.  A cd with your kittens pictures will be included along with a useful care guide and lots of information leaflets.  4 weeks free insurance and Lifelong advice and support will also be given.

For more information please contact me.  Allergy sittings available on request for a small fee on specific dates only to those who have emailed with the information I require.

No available kittens

As is practically always the case. All my current kittens are reserved for my waiting list and are not available. For those not familiar with how i work i will explain briefly.

I operate a paid only waiting list. This opens at the end of one year and is normally closed once full. I only take a few names per litter to try and avoid people waiting too long. People are offered kittens in order of list with a wait of anything between 6-12 months.

why do i have a paid waiting list?

I believe that when choosing a kitten you have to start by good research. This involves finding a good breeder who has the right ethics you are looking for and then waiting for the right kitten. This is how i approached getting my first siberian as a show pet.  I have a waiting list so i can offer kittens to those who have chosen me as a breeder. I feel it unfair to not have a list and leave it to chance as those people wanting a kitten from me for specific reasons may miss out. It also benefits me and the kittens to know i have homes waiting. I can vet people in advance and it gives me added security to know these people have done their research. I only breed based on the homes waiting. If no one joined the list i would think twice about having a litter i may not find homes for.

The reason it is paid is because of numerous time wasters in previous years who put their names down with several people to increase the odds of getting a kitten but are not particularly fussed where they get one from. This then leaves me with reduced numbers of homes as most tend to go elsewhere and not tell you because someone else had kittens available first. I then have to worry about finding the right homes for my babies at short notice. The money paid comes off the total cost so you are not paying extra.

It is ofcourse fine if people have several breeders in mind but i prefer to let mine go to homes where people have chosen me specifically.

If you do not want to wait with one breeder then my system is not for you. The list tends to fill up fairly quickly and by the time i have kittens. When you see available next to my kittens this means available to the wait list. If by chance and its a big if i have kittens left offlist i will state such. This rarely happens. I had 1 kitten left in 2015 offlist and none in 2016 so you can see if you want one of my kittens you need to be prepared to wait on a list.

If this is not for you then you may be best going to someone who does not keep a wait list. However i would always advise to do your research carefully. There is alot of helpful advice on my website.

Please note my blog is upto date but my website is not in some areas such as pricing and current cats in breeding. I will update this via my web designer once i have time. Im busy decorating inbetween kittens this year and the previous 2 yrs i was busy studying so it has taken a back seat im afraid.

If you are interested in being a part of the Druzhina family and would like one of my kittens please see adopting a kitten page of website and scroll down to section on how to join the waiting list for rules on joining. You can see lots of pictures of my kittens on my blog by searching through past posts and you can also follow me on instagram and facebook under druzhina siberians.

I will be posting 2017 breeding plans soon. I have some new stunning cats in breeding this year and i am very excited to see the babies they produce

I look forward to hearing from you

Litter H1 8 weeks

This is the first litter of Sophie and she has been a great mum.  This litter are a lovely bunch all very similar and extroverts.  Quite chunky babies who love their food.  All are brown tabby of varying shades.  One kitten will be going to a show home but I have not yet fully decided so the kittens with under observation next to their names are not available to be chosen just yet but will be in the next couple of weeks (all apart from one of them) both parents are big cats and I expect the kittens to grow up to be the same especially the boys as Zhenda is huge.

These kittens all have names begining with H.  I will email the list in order so please be patient. This is the last litter of 2016.  They should leave here in february along with litter G1.  All the kittens are very similar in temperament and any of them would be fine going together.

There will be a short break to give me a chance to do some home improvements then further kittens will be expected in late spring 2017

Breeding plans for next year will be posted in the next few weeks. only people on the list will be offered kittens in 2017.  The list is open now.  Please read adopting a kitten page and email according to instructions on that page of the website. www.druzhina-siberian-cats.co.uk


The boys:

Druzhina Herbie (meaning bright)  black brown mackerel tabby boy

This was our smallest kitten in the litter.  He is still smaller than the others but catching up and has gained weight consistently with the others.  He has a big friendly character and a very sweet nature.  Quite calm and should be fine in most homes.

Druzhina Henley  ( meaning from the woods)  Black brown spotted tabby boy
Lively like the others but alittle shyer about being handled than the others.  When older he should grow in confidence but maybe a quieter home just incase is best

Druzhina Harrison  ( meaning Lord of the manor)  Black brown mackerel tabby.  The boss out of the boys. The biggest of the boys and a very warm brown almost golden. A bit of a fidget but lively and playful. Does not stay still for long. Suitable in most homes

The girls:

Druzhina Hope  ( meaning eternal life)  Black brown mackerel tabby girl 
under observation

A sweet even tempered girl, very pretty and like all the other girls friendly and suitable in most homes. Looks very much like dad did as a kitten.

Druzhina Hermione  ( meaning luck and speed) black brown spotted tabby girl

Smallest of the girls but big character and the cutest little face.  Beautiful marking and contrast in her coat.  Again similar to the other girls and suitable in most homes. Very similar pattern to coat as her brother Henley. Huge blotched spots on coat. Normally quite small so quite unusual. They both looked classic at birth.

Druzhina Helena ( meaning bright one) black (golden) brown mackerel tabby girl
under observation

Lives up to her name. The boss out of the girls very bright in colour and temperament. Biggest of the girls and has huge feet.  Suitable in most homes but as she is very confident a home with lots of attention maybe best

Druzhina Harmony ( meaning peace)  Black brown mackerel tabby girl
under observation

A very sweet girl, gentle and easy to handle. well behaved yet playful. suitable in  most homes. Lovely type and expression. Looks very much like her mum did as a kitten
