Today is the final round of allergen testing for the K Litter, including the gorgeous Kiska pictured above. So it won’t be long before we’ll be saying goodbye to these little ones. That won’t be easy – they are all so nice.

Here’s a flashback to Kiska just nine weeks ago.

Mari is 10 years old, ready for a new home

Mari - Siberian female cat

Mari at five years old, in 2011.

Yesterday was Mari’s tenth birthday. Mari is a famous cat. A spayed female, she is our “testing cat” and the one that many visitors to Seacliffe Siberians meet first when they are learning about low-allergen Siberians.

Mari appears with Calina at the top of all our website pages, and is the face of our accounts on Facebook and Twitter, so you can tell we think she’s pretty special.

Reluctantly, due to our growing family of breeding cats, we have decided to offer Mari for adoption. If you are interested, please contact us. One of the special conditions will be that Mari is kept as an indoors-only cat (it’s all she’s ever known) or at least kept on her new family’s property at all times.

The photo above was taken when we lived in Toronto and it remains one of our favourites. Mari sure knows how to pose – and she’s still just as beautiful.

First portraits of the L Litter

Our three L Litter kittens got their first brief walk-about this afternoon, long enough for me to get one or two photos of each that weren’t just a blur. 🙂

It was a strange new experience for them, at just 16 days old, so they were on high alert, with claws at the ready. Be sure to check out the white toes on number 3 – how cute!

We’re still looking for names for these little ones – starting with the letter L. You can send us your suggestion(s) by email or in the comments below and we’ll choose names to match their personalities in a few days.

The first kitten in Ksana's first litter is this adorable male colourpoint with white feet. Age 16 days, 26 Nov 2016.

Isn’t this a lovely photo? Stoli (ex Bailey, born September 2012) and Aria have been great friends ever since Aria was born.

Thanks Emily and Mike for sharing the photo.

Beth gets close to nature

Beth, on one of her daily walks, 30 Oct 2016

Seacliffe Siberian ‘Beth’ – complete with her bright blue leash – is a familiar sight in central Wellington as she meanders on her daily walks with Helen.

Now 14 months old, this adorable seal lynx point from the I Litter has a nose for nature, as Helen reports:

“Some recent pics of my handsome wee girl. She stuck her face in a dandelion and then another orange flower a day or two later and wound up with yellow and orange pollen on her face in the close-ups.”

We think Beth is lovely, with or without makeup.

See more photos on the Beth page.

K Kittens attack a new string toy

The K Litter will be eleven weeks old tomorrow. Today, Judee introduced them to a new string toy and, of course, they went crazy for it.

The video is about 90 seconds long and at the end you’ll see Katrina catch the toy. Turn up the volume and you’ll hear her growling as she refuses to let go. She’s indomitable.

Kittens on top of the world

K Litter Siberian kittens on top level of a 2-m tall climbing post, 1 Nov 2016

K Litter Siberian kittens on top level of a 2-metre-tall climbing post, 1 Nov 2016

Our cats love climbing the 2-metre-tall scratching posts that we build, and kittens have usually made it to the top by the time they are 4-5 weeks old.

Yesterday, Judee noticed that all four of the K Litter kittens (9 weeks old today) were curled up on the “crowsnest” of the post in our office.

By holding the camera over my head and aiming in the general direction, I was able to get this snapshot.
