Siberian Kittens and Cats

From Russia With Love: Meet the strong and gentle Siberian, with personality to share.

Cica Cattery offers some of the most beautiful Siberian Kittens available. Family Lines include Champions and Grand Champions and Supremes. Check out the Kittens link below for photos of kittens descended from these lines; soon the Adults link (under development) will lead to pictures of present and past cats which can be found in our pedigrees.

We have various lines. The first 5 are our original "old" lines from the late 1990s:

Fawn-Fawn
Lizetta Sarzhi
Yolanta Black
Zlata Sibirskaya Taiga
Olesya Sibirskaya Taiga

Since that time, we have acquired several new strictly traditional lines from Russia, Hungary, and German (without a single Neva in the pedigrees since foundation). For cat lovers in Europe, our lines are available from Meda-Garden Cattery in Budapest, Hungary, which often has kittens from my old lines. See their website for details.

For the most up-to-date information on kitten availability, recent pictures, and other news, see my blog, which is updated fairly often.

History

Our cattery originated in 1995 when I brought my first two Siberian cats from Moscow. Since then all our cats have been hand-selected and hand-carried from Europe. You will find a great deal of information on this site regarding Siberian cats and kittens. We have included information on the breed, the standards for showing Siberians, as well as some great information on how this wonderful breed is considered the most hypo-allergenic breed of cats available.

The picture on this page shows our Supreme Grand Champion Fawn-Fawn in his prime, our first Siberian male and the foundation of our cattery. Virtually all our kittens will have his genes in their pedigrees. Note the beautiful detailing of his coat. Fawn-Fawn died of cancer in 2009. Here you can see some of his last pictures.

Our other original Siberian, Supreme Grand Champion Lizetta Sarzhi passed away in 2015 at the ripe old age of 20 years and 3 months, emjoying life until her final days.

About Siberian Kittens

Siberian kittens grow to be relatively large, long-haired or semi-long-haired cats which were first imported from Russia in 1990, and are still fairly unusual in the U.S. They make loving pets, coexist very well with kids and other animals, and are surprisingly easy to take care of. What is more, they are relatively hypoallergenic, so if your kids have always wanted to get a cat, but your spouse is allergic to them, the odds are very good that you can live with Siberians!

Our cats are raised in our home, with breeding females and kittens in one area, and they have access to an outdoor enclosure when weather permits. Our male and altered cats have the run of the house, with access to another outdoor enclosure. Even breeding males are never caged, and it is usual for our cats to spend their whole lives with us.

I am often asked about the availability of adult cats and retired breeders for adoption. Adult cats are generally set in their way and closely bonded to their environment. When available, I prefer to place them locally so that I can help with their adjustment and ease the transition. I also prefer to place them along with a regular kitten adoption. Feel free to inquire about these policies by email.
