|Dragosh is doing splendidly. He’s just a little love-bundle; cuddles, purrs up a
storm, sits on my book when I’m reading, on the computer keyboard when I’m
working (deletes files like crazy with the famous sneaky paw), rides from one room
to another on my shoulder, launches himself at me from the end of the hall and
climbs up my leg as if I am a mildly unsatisfactory tree, and has never heard of
sitting calmly for half a second somewhere other than on me and not being noticed.
When not on me or about to be, he tears madly from one end of the apartment to
the other, leaving a trail of knocked down objects in his wake, chases Kali’s tail,
inserts toys in my slippers and shoes so I’ll encounter them when I put my foot
there, climbs curtains and venetian blind cords, goes behind the books on the
bookshelf and knocks a whole row down, and so on. A normal, healthy kitten, in
other words. He eats enough for a cat and a half, leaving enough for half a cat for
Kali, but she doesn’t seem to mind. She has accepted him, and holds him down with
a firm paw when she wants to clean him. She lets him eat first, and calmly gives him
her bowl when he decides that her stuff is better than his. He is a sweetheart...

|I’m glad that you enjoyed the pictures and that the babies are looking well in your
opinion. I know they seem very happy to us! I am definitely mommy to them. They
like both of us of course, but they follow me absolutely everywhere I go in the
house and as soon as I sit down somewhere, one or both of them jump up on me to
sit with me. They also like to curl up and sleep on me when I am laying down
watching TV or for a nap. It’s too cute! Actually, I should say that all three of
them sit/sleep with me. The third being Martin, Alante’s blue fishy. He loves that
toy. It used to be attached to a bungee string on a “fishing pole,” but somehow
the cord got chewed in half and so I finally just cut the fish off. Prior to that
Arianna would often grab the end of the pole and drag it and Alante would then
chase after the fish on the other end. He would also drag the fish with pole and
all everywhere he went. But he is like a little kid with his favorite toy – where he
goes, the fish goes. If he is somewhere in the house and realizes his fishy is not
nearby, he goes and finds it and carries it in his mouth back to the place where he
was. He plays fetch with me and the fish and when he curls up on me to sleep, I
often wake up to find that the fish is lying on top of me as well! It is so funny...
|The trip home went very well. She [Melinka] stayed in the carrier beside me, with me
laying horizontally in the back seat. After a bit, I opened one end, and she settled to sleep
snuggled up against my chest for the whole trip, purring a lot. She likes micro fleece and I
was wearing fleece and the blanket I use in the car is microfleece too.
Intro to the house went fine too. She tentatively explored the main floor (basement off
limits), then became more confident quickly. The upstairs...for now, only our bedroom door
is open to her. She followed us upstairs and after some exploring of every nook and
cranny, she snuggled in to sleep between us, mostly up against me; non stop motor on...
She follows me around and likes to be up against me....
She is beautiful, as are all of your cats that we met. It is so clear to us how much love and
attention you lavish on your cats! We are so grateful to you!
[My husband] has had zero reaction, even with her in the bed all night! [My husband] is
enjoying watching all the normal cat behaviours that he is not familiar with.... like kneading,
and chasing blanket covered toes in bed. He can't believe her loud purr!...
Anyway, we are thrilled with her and thrilled that you were the ones to nurture her to this
point. THANK YOU!
|[Bashka] is doing great. She has fit in with the family so well that we don’t know
what we’d do without her. She makes us laugh and shake our heads at her every day.
She completely loves the boys and wherever they are she is always right there with
them. As soon as they get up to go to bed at night, no matter where in the house she
is, she’ll come running upstairs to jump in bed with them. I was searching all over
the house for her last weekend and should have known that when I went downstairs
to ask my oldest if he had seen her (he was playing his Playstation), there she was
curled up in a ball right next to him.
|Well, Cai behaved beautifully on the way home. He's so laid back.
When I got home, I introduced Zoe to Cai as you recommended. I've never seen Zoe
so still (or so puffed up!). They both were so still and quiet -- just a lot of sniffing
going on. I had [my friend] bring Cai inside in the crate, and we put him in the spare
bedroom. He was happy there as long as [my friend] was in there, but cried and cried
when left alone. Zoe was very curious about it all, and kept peeking under the door to
see what was going on. Finally, I decided to have [my friend] bring Cai out and hold
him, and Cai just wiggled until she had to put him down. Zoe was fine! Not a single hiss
or growl! I was so proud of her! She really seems to like Cai, and they have played for
hours. Cai was just running around from place to place checking things out, playing with
everything in sight, with Zoe trailing behind him. Cai is very comfortable here...He was
such a good boy -- he's used the litter box twice. He is such a cutie.
Thanks again for driving to meet me.
|Selune is doing great. The trip home was quiet and calm. She
spent most of the trip curled on my lap or curled in the
carrier. (She seemed to prefer the carrier to my lap in busy
cities.) I think Selune misses her family like they miss her,
but Pandora is keeping her entertained. I don't think I've
ever seen 2 cats handle each other better. There has been
some hissing and growling, but its balanced out by a lot of
curling up together and batting a toy between each other...
It was nice to meet you too. I could tell that Selune and her
family are well taken care of and very loved. I hope you know
that [my husband] and I will do our best to continue giving
Selune that kind of care and love. - T & R from Wisconsin
|We call Thea, "Tee-Tee Bobbies". I have no idea why. That is just what everyone calls
her. I call Sinneka, "Sinn-Sinns". She will jump up on our bed at night, scratch me with
her paw until I lift up the covers, and then she walks about a foot down under the
covers and sleeps there. It is so cute. I always prop up the blanket, I'm afraid she
won't get enough air. Thea has decided she likes to help me cook. She gets up on our
kitchen island while I'm cooking and helps supervise.
We sure love these girls. I told [my oldest son] the other night, I can't even imagine
life without them. They are truly a part of our family.
Kisses and head-butts from the girls. They are beautiful, happy little sweethearts.
That is unless I am trying to fold clothes. They attack my piles of nicely folded
clothes. Then they are just the resident psycho kitties. WE LOVE THEM !

|We just wanted to send some pictures to you of
Borias’s first Christmas. He made out very well
with plenty of new toys and lots of love. I think
his favorite toy was my Christmas gift – an iRobot
self cleaning vacuum. He chases it around the
house and pounces on it – so cute...We just love
having [him] around – he is just adorable and such
a nice addition to our family...He is growing in
leaps and bounds!

|I just wanted to follow-up with my phone conversation with Jan last night and let you
know that I dropped the deposit ... in the mail this afternoon, so you should have it by
Friday. I appreciate the time you took to answer my questions, as well as allowing
me to blather on in my excitement. :)
[We] would like to thank you both again for helping us to arrive at a place where we
feel comfortable with the idea of becoming cat owners. -T.B. from Pennsylvania
I'm Lilo's mom and I was so happy to see him on your website. He's still a "wild
man" but extremely affectionate and more handsome every day! I've attached
another picture of him with a red background. I figure he's about 12.5 pounds
now, but pure muscle. We love him! - R.S. from California
|Yoki is doing great, she's fully used to her new home.
She greets us at the door when we come in, chittering
loudly, and is our new alarm clock. She seems healthy
and vibrant, and is a real pleasure to have. She loves
to play, and is trying desperately to figure out a way
to climb up my bookshelves, since she can only jump to
the 3rd shelf out of 5. Thanks again for a great
kitten! - M. & B.K. from Pennsylvania
|Thanks for the reference, I'll certainly check out the site.
The last few months have been a real eye opener for me. I've communicated
with professional and reputable breeders like yourself, who have been so
pleasant and generous with information. On the other hand, I had no idea how
many people are out there breeding animals irresponsibly and inhumanely. One
woman even emailed me photos of kittens in cages...I was horrified. The looks
on their faces broke my heart... God, I wish I could adopt them all...Asante
looks like a little prince. He gorgeous and obviously well taken care of. He had
a good beginning and will surely go onto being loved by a wonderful family.
Thanks again for getting back to me. - S.B. from New York
|I just want to thank you for the informative website. I've been
researching the Siberians like mad lately and your site is the most
helpful informative site I've been across, and that is many! It's such
a shame you live so far from us, the boy kitten you have is adorable,
but I think the shipping would be a nightmare for him...Anyway, I just
had to comment on your site and thank you for all the great
information. - P. from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
|Arianna ... is such a warm and loving kitty, too... she is very
friendly and likes to cuddle. The two of them are best
buddies and do everything together – even get into
trouble! We usually find them sleeping curled up
together on their condo or tree. And, of course they love
to wrestle and chase after each other ... Arianna is a
tough little girl! Alante usually starts the wrestling
match, but she whoops his bum and then gets up and
struts away really slow to look tough. It’s hysterical! ...
Alante still does his funny walk with his tail held high over
his back...They bring us a lot of joy and laughter
I had a jewelry party...and the babies were in their
element parading around in front of everyone and being
loved by all! Those two are such hams sometimes!
- K.K. from Pennsylvania
|...She has decided that she likes watching football on TV....
[My husband] is suitably impressed with this! He adores her
and plays with her a lot. She walks on him but isn't super
cuddly with him yet.
I can tell you that it is wonderful to see her adapting to her
new environment...She is oh-so-sweetly telling us who is in
charge!...She is now attaching herself with velcro to both [my
husband] and I. [My husband] was feeling a little left out
the first day.
[My husband] has not detected any reaction so far, even with
Malinka sleeping between us both nights.
- C & L from Pennsylvania
|Her favorite toys are these little fur
mice that I picked up. She chases them
around the house, carries them upstairs
when we go to bed and proceeds to
chase them around the bed. I’m
constantly finding them in every room
of the house, on the stairs, in my shoes,
on the table, and every time I take a
load of clothes out of the washer, there
is always one of them in the bottom…
|(she loves jumping and playing in both dirty and clean clothes too, or maybe she just
likes her mice clean!). She hasn’t gotten to that lanky stage that all of my other kittens
seemed to go through (really long legs out of proportion to their body) but is just a
big beautiful cat. Everyone that meets her completely falls in love with her. She is just
so personable with everyone and loves to play and torment (and be tormented)!
- A.K. from Virginia
|The girls are doing great. Every time I think they have totally settled in they
prove me wrong and get just a little more comfortable around the house.
They were quite the sight at Christmas. They managed to attack the gifts
under the tree...................we had to re wrap. They fought over a little tiny
open spot under the tree. One of them would bunker down in this little open
spot where they could pretty much observe the happenings of the household.
They would fight over this spot............Thea usually wins. Poor Sinneka...
Well, it just about killed me not to have Cai
sleep with me last night! He is such a lover...
After Zoe got a little rough last night, I put
her in my room for a break, and little Cai fell
sound asleep on my chest. I didn't want Zoe
to get jealous, because she always sleeps
with me, so I put Cai in his bed in the spare
bedroom after a few hours. He was pretty
tired out after yesterday, and I didn't hear
a peep from him...
Things couldn't be better! Zoe and Cai are best of friends. One is always following
the other. Cai's comfort level has soared, and he was actually the one running after
Zoe and jumping on her yesterday! Pretty funny. He is absolutely the sweetest cat
ever. All my friends with cats are envious:) He is such a little lovebug. I can't get
enough of him. And Zoe has settled down. She gets very maternal with him often,
cleaning and preening him. He laps it up. And for the first time since I've gotten Zoe,
I don't have any teeth marks on my arms! All that kitten energy is being expended
playing with Cai, who holds his own...
Thanks again for such a delightful kitten. Honestly, it is a perfect match! -- for me
and for Zoe. - D.M. from New Jersey
|He really is such a sweetie, and I couldn't be more delighted...
Thanks for all your encouragement and advise. As I said, I know dogs, but cats are
still new to me.
