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.

Buyers beware

Its the time of year again when people will start breeding again and advertising litters for sale. You may be loooking for a kitten yourself but do you know what to look for in a breeder? You may think we are all the same but we are not..
below is a screenshot of a person who mates siberians unregistered..i refrain from calling him a breeder because he does not deserve the title..he sells his kittens at 8 wks with nothing done and cannot provide registration for his kittens because he is not registered himself. These people offer no guarantees of health and will have had no checks done by a vet. To sell kittens at 8 wks is irresponsible. They are too young and still need to develop emotionally.

Going to a registered reputable breeder is important if you want to try and ensure health and pedigree of cats. These backyard breeders offer no health testing of parents and probably do not even have permission to breed their cats. They may also be breeding several litters from the same cat each year leaving no breaks.

As a rule sites like pets4homes are not the place to be looking for a kitten. It angers me that people like this person get away with breeding for money and cutting corners. Yes he is cheap but why is that? Because he has very little invested in his cats and standards are absent. You will struggle to get a good kitten from any registered breeder for less than £700. Some breeders even charge £1200 which personally is too much.

I often get contacted by people who have bought cats from these people upset because the kitten got sick etc. Well there is nothing you can do once they have your money.  Registered breeders generally follow a code of ethics to ensure they are doing things correctly and you can report them if they do not. This way you have some peace of mind.

If looking for a kitten PLEASE do your research and know what to look for in a registered breeder. The kitten may cost more but you will get peace of mind and a well bred health checked kitten.

See my website druzhina siberians adopting a kitten page as there is alot of advice there on choosing a breeder.

choosing your kitten

I am writing this brief explanation of how the waiting list works for those new to it.

Once on the waiting list you will be offered kittens in order of list once they are 6-8 weeks old. Pictures will go on here of who is available. The person at the top gets first refusal on pet kittens. You choose from the pictures and personality explanations. I do not allow in person visits to choose as it holds up the list and they are not allowed visitors until after 9 weeks for hygiene reasons.

If there is nothing they like they can wait for the next litter and the second person gets to choose. I go down the list in order until all the litter have homes. It is impossible to say when you will get a kitten other than i normally expect people to choose one which is suitable within 6-12 months of joining. I will ask you to try and pick 2 you like so i can atleast get one of your favourites for you.

Some people have specific requirements others not so even if you are further down the list it is possible to get a kitten sooner than expected should people above you have specific requirements. It is always best to wait until you are ready for a kitten before joining the list incase one becomes available sooner than expected.

I will take names of people who want to join well in advance but are not ready just yet but please make this known on application. I will only contact you when it is your turn to choose so please be patient. All updates of expectant litters and available kittens will be posted here so please follow the blog regularly.

If you are interested in adopting a retired cat then i will have a couple of cats available later this year. You do not need to join the list officially until you have decided you are definately wanting a specific cat. A non refundable deposit will then be needed like it is with the wait list to hold that cat for you.

Hope this simplifies things and gives you a better understanding of how i work. Im extremely busy so cannot email all updates to each person on the list as it is too time consuming. This is why i have this blog. please do not worry if i have not emailed for awhile. You will hear from me  when its your turn to choose. However you are welcome to contact me anytime should you have questions
