Environmental Enrichment is Essential for Siberian cats.

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 »

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 »

Fel d 1 is a tiny protein expressed in saliva, skin oils, and via the anal glands.
