Old Fashioned Chicken Stock Recipe.
Chicken stock is a wonderful way to add nutritious hydration to your Siberian cat's diet. Simply stir some stock (aka "broth"), into your Siberian's wet food. Increasing a Siberian cat's hydration is a terrific way to avoid urinary blockages, kidney problems, dehyration, and a bunch of other ills.
1 whole chicken, rinsed
2 pounds of carrots

We place most of our kittens into allergy and/or asthmatic homes. 2015 is our 10th year of Siberian Cat breeding. During that time we have needed to rehome three (3) kittens placed in allergy or asthma homes.
We believe a large part of our success rate is careful screening and support of prospective Kitten Families. We are not focused on kitten sales, but rather kitten placements. By this we mean we want to ensure - cat allergy family or not - that there is a proper fit b...Read Full Post »

Fel d 1 is a tiny protein expressed in saliva, skin oils, and via the anal glands. Salivatory Fel d 1 is spread through your Siberian's fur during grooming; and sebaceous Fel d 1 also spreads through the fur through expression. The Fel d 1 enters the atmosphere via loose hair, dander, and the litter box.. The allergen is very stable and can remain active in the environment for over a year. Anally expressed Fel d 1 ends up in the litter box, of course, which is why Unfair Rule # 1 for aller...Read Full Post »

1. Showering Only in the Morning
When you spend a lot of time outside, particularly if you’re working
out in the yard, pollen can end up on your skin and hair, worsening
allergy symptoms. If you’re highly allergic to pollen, it’s a good
idea to take a second shower after you come inside, to rinse away
the pollen...Read Full Post »

1. No Pets in the Cat Allergic Bedroom: Keep allergens out of the bedroom - 8 hours of allergy free breathing can make the difference between no to low reactivity and an uncomfortably itchy/sneazy time. Always bathe before bed, and leave that day's clothing in a bathroom hamper instead of in the bedroom.
2. Use Air Filters: Carefully research air filtration units, and place one in your bedroom and one in the kitten's bedroom. Repl...Read Full Post »

We are a developing breeding program, only nine years old, and we believe in just a few litters per queen and for each stud, together with early retirements for both.
So, we breed when we have the properly paired parents available. We are trying to build genetic diversity into North America - sadly the difficulties of importing when the breed began being imported in 1990 led to limited genetic pool, a lot of inbree...Read Full Post »

The final stage in your kitten's adjustment is just as important as the earlier ones and should be handled just as carefully. T...Read Full Post »

Before allowing your kitten access to the rest of the
house, be sure you can answer "yes" to the following questions both for
yourself, and for any other members of your human household (we'll get
to animal friends in the next paragraph).
1. My kitten acts confidently when I am in her room.
2. My kitten allows me to pick her up without running away.
3. My kitten is comfortable being held for a period of time.
4. My ki...
