We are family run , always someone at home 24/7. I have two adult daughters Olivia and Megan and a grandson Teddy.
We believe the pedigrees, health, wellness and personality is key to a high quality Siberian. Our cattery is indoors for safety reasons and health tested. We health test each adult cat and always check the line history of cats for genetic and hereditary problems to make sure the line history is tested also.
We choose cats and line which produce longer coats cats and kittens.
Some can have short, but we always choose our breeding king and queens from lines with good coat lengths .
Our litters are carefully planned and thought out, breeding males to females that complement each other and that will produce the desired traits and characteristics. We have 3 males for diversity and new blood lines .
We are a cageless cattery so our Siberian cats receive constant human interaction, personal care, lots of love and live within the heart of our family. Their happiness is paramount and we feel honoured to share our home with such magnificent cats. This sets us apart from most Siberian catteries, whose Siberians do live outside, and is evidenced in the natures of the kittens we produce. We have decided to remain a smaller cattery, despite our success, as we aim to focus on the quality rather than the quantity of our kittens, meaning each and every kitten is truly special. We take huge pride in our Siberian breeding program and have a constant appetite and enthusiasm to keep researching and learning about this remarkable breed, so are always raising the barre in terms of what we do and achieve here.
We like to ensure we go above and beyond and only provide the best for our cats and kittens, therefore in our kitten room we have hospital grade veterinary flooring and we use Defra approved cleaning products.
We do not mix any of the adult cats with the un vaccinated kittens. Our cats and kittens are raised indoors around family life and socialised to an extremely high standard. This includes socialisation with my grandson, who is 8 and a German Shepard. We believe personality is key and having this early socialisation and TLC is our top priority.
We have some of the best pedigree lines within the U.K. and Europe. Our pedigrees are full of World champions, international champions and grand champions and we have UK champion cats. Some of our Pedigrees include foundation lines and cats within the pedigrees which are world famous and on the hall of fame website.
We have both traditional Siberian’s and colour point Siberian’s two which are separate breeding programs. We specialise in the very beautiful silver Siberians. However, we do have a diverse colour range. This includes bimetallic or sometimes called Sunshine, red, blue, and torbies and brown tabby’s and blacks and not forgetting the beautiful Neva colour point colours. Our Siberians are Traditional Siberians, and do not have the colour point gene.
We will only ever breed from the best health tested quality Siberian’s. We use only high quality food, pet safe cleaning products and veterinary grade products and follow our local councils license regulations voluntarily. More details of this can be found on our website.
We are HMRC registered , GCCF and TICA registered and apart of the Siberian cat club . Defra licence and can offer a delivery service.
We do not over breed and our cats are fully health tested and up to date yearly of all vaccinations.
All records can be seen .
We have 5* facilities and have the best cleaning routines possible and adhere to our councils breeding regulations.
My passion for cats started as a young girl and I always found a cat that needed loving.
After I had a red Persian for 17 years and some fostering with the cats protection, I stumbled across Siberians on the net. I was totally in love with the beauty of Siberians and my adventure had started!
This was in 2006 and I imported my first Siberian from Hungary early 2007.
I was one of the first Siberian breeders in the UK and have helped develop the breed in the last 16 years.
I have previously been on the Siberian cat club panel.
Since then I have been a breeder of Siberian and with health tested pedigree Siberians imported from Russia, Hungary, USA, Germany, Ukraine , and Czech Republic to ensure breed diversity and a healthy gene pool.
I attend shows up and down the country each year which I love to do .
I thrive to obtain and produce the best lines and quality cats and kittens.
Within our breeding programs we have many Grand champions, International CHAMPION lines and grand CHAMPION and UK champions and pedigrees which are just full of champions and foundation lines .
We also have a UK champion stud MAX.
(read our pedigree FAQ on why this is important)
Our pedigrees and line history are some of what we believe to be the best in the world .
We uphold the highest possible standard of hygiene with 5 star facilities and veterinary flooring .
We do not over breed and all our cats are health tested and up to date yearly with vaccinations, health checks and worm and flea and all documents can be seen.
We raise our cats and kittens on the best food and diet .
Asides to the pedigrees we believe health and wellness is just as important .
We health test each adult cat and always check the line history of cats for genetic and hereditary problems and to make sure the line history is tested also .
Our cats and kittens are raised in doors around My grandson who is 7 and a German Shepard .
I have two beautiful adult daughters Olivia and Megan and my mother Barbra who lives near enough next door to us , and not forgetting our kitten cuddlier Teddy, my grandson.
Both of my children have extensive knowledge and expertise on breeding or caring for animals .
She intends to in 2021 to attend cat shows again when covid restrictions are lifted to assess our cats .
Olivia is a massive animal love, her biggest passion in life .
She also fostered cats back in 2011 .
She has raised the most animal obsessed little boy you could ever meet .
Olivia her whole life has been around cats and animals growing up , she has
Always 1-2 people at home 24/7 no cat or kitten is left for longer than 4 hours at a time (we follow all our local councils breeding regulations to comply with the licencing regulations) our cats and kittens are fed 4 times a day wet and water is checked every 4 hours and in the highest possible conditions .
As we are not a one man band we have extra time to focus on socialisation and love and cuddles .
We know personality is key to a high quality Siberian
We treat them like the Kings and Queens like they deserve to be.
Read our FAQ diet selection / health testing /and what our kittens come with.
They are all loved and cared for to the highest standard and cuddled tested!
We do work , however there are 3 adults in our home Caroline, Olivia and Megan and our youngest graduate Teddy.
Simply, if it was a one man band we wouldn’t breed. It is impossible to have a full time job and cats and kittens for them to receive the socialisation needed and care.
A breeder isn’t allowed to leave the premise for example for longer than 4 hours at a time – kittens must be fed 4 times a day spread out and water checked .
So to follow the council’s breeding regulations it’s simply not possible if you have more than 2-3 litters or more a year and worked full time by yourself
Otherwise councils agree care and welfare is affected.
We are family run, Olivia and Megan are my daughters and Teddy is my grandson.
We have one big dog (German Shepherd) we call Scooby doo and Scrappy doo. Both dogs are super maternal to our cats and kittens.
Owners come over and often fall in love with our dogs too.
Don’t worry though we know many are frightened of dogs so they will always be away.
Our home is a loud loving sociable home.
Why is a loud and sociable home good? Surely they would need a quiet home?
NO only birthing rooms should be quiet and relaxing which they are. We have the facilities.
Our kittens do not know any different, it’s best for a kitten to be exposed to different social situations.
Read about why a home environment plays a huge part in the Siberians’ personality in our FAQ.
They are used to running around this big house experiencing all different social situations early on.
Some will say Siberians are not suited for all types of families, in our experience this isn’t the case nor should it be the case..
Yes sometimes you get a shy one but we would always work with that kitten on a one to one basis in the key stage of the kittens learning and this always rights itself.
They all do have different personalities, however it shouldn’t ever be that they are scared or really shy or unfriendly.
Siberians are the friendliest most sociable cats out of all breeds of cats.
Siberians crave love and human interaction.
Raised correctly they are perfect for all types of homes including young children but this is why choosing a breeder is important.
Are you seeing the kittens regularly being handled or played with or is a breeder just telling you they are always home? Don’t believe everything you read!
You should see the interaction on a daily basis or active social media profile not just the odd update photo .
Many kittens are not assigned by breeders till 10 weeks plus this is normal.
However you should still see group photos handling , toy rooms and proof the set up is like what one says .
