Our cats and kittens are lovingly raised in our home among us, not in cages. They are properly socialized with contact and exposure to several adults, children, household noises (and surprises), musical instruments, small dogs, a bearded dragon, and even F18 Navy Aircraft from time to time!
Our cats and pets are our fur babies, are treated as such, and prayed over daily. Our fur babies receive the best loving attention, food, accommodations, and veterinary care. Our cats and kittens are indoor-only cats, and are to remain as such, due to the ever-increasing harmful and deadly threats lurking outdoors!
We test each of our Kings and Queens for HCM (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) via ultrasound, PKD, and PKDef (polycystic kidney disease, and pyruvate kinase deficiency) via genetic testing. Each of our cats are negative for all of the infectious diseases.
Our sweet kittens are dewormed at around 7 weeks and receive their first two FVRCP (distemper combo) vaccines at 8 and 12 weeks of age. Our awesome Veterinarian highly recommends (as do we), a 3rd FVRCP at 16 weeks old, which will cover them until they turn 1 year of age. The kittens also will require a killed rabies vaccine at around 5-8 months old, at least 30 days separate from the FVRCP. The reason for this is to give their little immune systems a better chance of proper response to each vaccine, with minimal side effects. At 1 year of age, the kittens will need another FVRCP and killed rabies vaccine, at least 30 days apart.
All of our cats are certified Purebred via their Pedigreed Lineage, and TICA. All of our kittens are registered with TICA, and the pedigrees will be mailed after proof of alteration has been submitted to us. We require alteration of kittens between 5-6 months of age, NO SOONER. The reason for this is to allow the kittens to grow and mature without any chemical or surgical interference altering their development. We want the kittens to be as healthy (physically, emotionally, mentally) as they possibly can be.
It is for this reason, kittens are only available for adoption at 14 weeks of age. Don't worry! These sweet, affectionate fur babies WILL bond with you, provided that you treat them with the utmost care, love, and gentleness. Siberians are very intelligent and despite what some may say, they understand words, as well as body language and facial expressions.
Five of our sweet cats arrived from Russia at 4 months old and had NO problems bonding with us. Happy, healthy, well socialized, well-adjusted kittens should remain with their mother and littermates until this time (14 weeks) to learn how to be good cats. This includes how to respond properly to other cats' and animals' body language. They learn what is acceptable and appropriate, and likewise, what is not. As weaning is not an instant occurrence, kittens will continue to nurse up until they are adopted into their new homes, and in doing so, this ensures that they receive their mother's necessary and beneficial immunities. After 14 weeks with mom and siblings, kittens will be ready to move into your home and heart as extremely well socialized and confident individuals.
