Even in dogs, females are more often dominant than males. Easiest fit into a home

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.

Anally expressed Fel d 1 ends up in the litter box, of course, which is why Unfair Rule # 1 for aller...Read Full Post »
