My name is Julie and I have severe cat allergies. At best, my reaction to cats includes hives and/or sneezing. At worst, my reaction includes my eyes swelling shut and/or several asthma attacks. When my husband (Zak) and I got together, he had a kitty named Louisa (Weeza for short). I tried for years to "suck it up" and live with the allergens, but over time - they built up and it became unmanageable. I wasn't able to go into the part of our house where Weeza was or I would have an asthma attack within a few minutes. Thankfully, we were able to rehome his cat with one of our daughters, but my husband missed having a cat in the house every day, and I felt awful that I was the reason he couldn't have one.
After doing some research, I came across several that were considered "hypoallergenic". Consistently, across many lists - the breed that had the lowest amount of FelD1 protein - was the Siberian Forest Cat. Since these cats are native to Russia, we opted to go right to the source for our kittens and in 2019, we got our first kitty.
We fell in love with this amazing beautiful breed immediately. I researched and read every single piece of literature that I could find about the breed. Pretty quickly, we decided that we wanted to dedicate the rest of our lives to this breed. We also wanted to enable other people with stories like mine (people that have severe allergies or are married to people with severe allergies) to have cats of their own. And thus, a cattery was born!
I'm frequently asked what I consider to be a good breeder. Even if you don't purchase a kitten from me, it is good to educate yourself on what is considered to be a good breeder. I've put together some items that I consider to be the "bare minimum".
Siberians live (on average) for about 15 years. But there are many that live upwards of 20 years with proper health and maintenance. Due to this long lifespan, we have a section of our contract called a "bequeathal addendum". This provides us with a sense of security that our cats will have a place to land if something were to happen to you.
