Iriska Sibirushka Krasa (we just call her Iriska) arrived in our cattery from Ukraine on November 17, 2017. She was born December 17, 2016 and was purchased by and shipped to us from one of the most respected Siberian breeders in Ukraine. Like our original breeding pair (Mama and Gāb), she comes with a highly decorated pedigree.
Her mother is a Champion, her father a Grand International Champion, and one of her grandfathers is a World Champion. Beyond that her line includes numerous International, Grand International, European, and Grand European Champions.
When paired with Gāb, Iriska tended to produce both grey kittens and brown/black mackerel tabby kittens (lots of white tummies and paws with hers!). She has not yet mated with Onyx, but because of their similar coloring we expect that we'll finally have some kittens who look like her! We'll update this page once we know for sure.
Mirra Dubravushka (we just call her Mirra) arrived in our cattery from Ukraine on June 20, 2018. She was born May 5, 2017 and was purchased by and shipped to us from another respected Ukranian Siberian breeder. Like our cats, she comes with a highly decorated pedigree.
Her mother is a Champion, her father an International Champion, and her great grandparents are Champions, International Champions, World Champions, and Grand International Champions. (Looking further back you'll see more of the same.)
Mirra's color genes are definitely dominant; we've had quite a few orange kittens, along with some grey, and some brown/black mackerel tabbies (who all had orange patches peeking through the other colors).
Aria Śnieżny Urwis (we just call her Aria) arrived in our cattery from Poland on August 9, 2019. She was born November 10, 2018 to a respected Siberian breeder in Poland.
She's full of energy and plays as hard and long as any of our kittens. She loves to be petted and especially loves to be snuggled by our 12 year old daughter. (She runs to greet her every morning, trilling the whole way.) Aria is BFF's with Mirra, and is still learning not to be afraid of Iriska (who is a lot larger, and almost half again as heavy as Aria...).
Like our cats, she comes with a highly decorated pedigree. Her mother is a Champion, her father a Grand International Champion, and her grandparents and great grandparents are Champions, International Champions, World Champions, and Grand International Champions. (Looking further back you'll see more of the same.)
Her coloring and markings are very striking and we're hoping she'll produce kittens who are equally gorgeous!
Future Queen: Arabesque
Arabesque is a little gray female with red splotches who looks like she could have been one of Mirra’s – just a little darker than we normally get from her. She is from the same cattery in Moscow as Onyx, but unrelated to him. So far she seems very sweet and curious, and seems to be getting more cuddly almost by the hour.
She also comes from champion bloodlines—in four generations she only has two grandparents who haven't won titles!—and we look forward to seeing kittens from her sometime next Summer or Fall.
Onyx Strana Chudes (we just call him Onyx) arrived in our cattery on October 2, 2019. He was born in a cattery in Moscow on May 9, 2018 and lived there until we brought him to ours.
Onyx has only just arrived, so we're still getting to know him, but so far he seems bright and curious.
The breeder we purchased him from specializes in rare colors and superior gene lines (which we are excited to mingle with our queens!) They attend international exhibitions regularly and have returned with honors. Their cats have been Nominated for Best in Show and have became Winners of breed in International Cat Shows!
Like all of our cats, he comes with a highly decorated pedigree filled with Champions, World Champions, International Champions, and Grand International Champions. (You actually have to go back FOUR generations to find an ancestor who doesn't have a title!)
Where it all began:
We started off slowly, with one breeding pair back in early 2016.
That first pair consisted of Rossity Tamara (Mama) and Baikal Knyaz Gvidon (Gāb), who produced a few litters together before they came to us, and gave us many of the most beautiful, cuddly, playful kittens you could ask for before being retired. See the gallery on our "Previous Litters" page or on our Facebook page (don't forget to "Like" our page!) for photos and videos of all of our cats' progeny.
We're pleased to be able to say that none of our kittens, from any of our queens, have been returned by any of our allergic owners who have purchased from us specifically for the hypoallergenic quality of the kittens.
Mama and Gāb
Mama (Rossity Tamara) was born in August 2009 and brought to the US from Russia by another breeder. She is from International and World Champion lines—there are too many awards on her pedigree for me to list here, but among them are European Champion, World Champion, International Champion, and Grand International Champion (repeated throughout the generations).
We retired Mama in spring 2018 after many, many amazing kittens, and can only hope that all of our present and future queens are half as amazing as she is. (And if their kittens are even half as wonderful as hers, we will thank our lucky stars...)
Gāb (Baikal Knyaz Gvidon) was born in July 2009 and brought to the US from Russia by another breeder. He is from International and World Champion lines—there are too many awards on his pedigree for me to list here, but among them are European Champion, World Champion, International Champion, and Grand International Champion (repeated throughout the generations).
Gāb sired all of our gorgeous, healthy, lovable kittens through Mirra's Litter D, and we will count ourselves as very blessed if our next male's kittens are half as sweet.
