The four P Litter kittens turn 12 weeks old tomorrow (Saturday 14 Oct) and we will begin their allergen testing in a few days.

Here’s a recent photo of Palinki, the only female in the litter. It was taken while she and her brothers were all crowded onto the top platform of a climbing post.

Pingu and the rest of the P Litter were perched on the 2-metre climbing post when I took this photo about two weeks ago.

Pavlov and Hoku getting some rest

The P Kittens are 10 weeks old and very active – which means they get very sleepy too.

These photos were taken two days ago in one of the kittens’ favourite spots. Often we’ll find all four kittens plus mum curled up here.

In this case, Pavlov had mum all to himself late in the evening. The photos are a bit grainy as I didn’t want to disturb the cats by using a flash.

Birthday kitten Remy still looking great

Siberian cat Remy at 3 years old, 24 Jan 2016

Here’s another of the birthday cats who turned five years old yesterday. Remy was originally named Barney and is one of our very few ginger kittens.

Jeff reports:

Remy still loves going outside in his harness and lead – sometimes just for a wander around the house and garden, sometimes out for a walk around the neighbourhood. It’s not uncommon for passers-by to comment on how beautiful he is or how how unusual it is to see a man walking a cat. 🙂

He is such a lap cat – if either of us sit down in the lounge, especially with a blanket over the lap, he’s curling up in no time. We love it.

He always sleeps on the bed at night, usually by our legs – but during the colder months either of us may get a polite tap on the forehead during the night which means ‘I want to come under the blankets’. We lift them up by our head and in he comes!

He’ll signal it’s playtime by leading one of us to the closet where his toys are, and one his favourite is a simple ball of foil he can chase.

He greets us enthusiastically at the door whenever we come home, looking for cuddles.

Remy was an adorable kitten too, as you can see from the photo below.

Emily writes:

Happy 5th Birthday Stoli and the other B kittens! Stoli will be celebrating with his favourite dish: tuna, tuna, and more tuna!

We love our big ball of fluff, he is such an integral part of our family. We couldn’t imagine life without him!

(Stoli was originally known as Bailey.)

Happy 5th birthday to the B Litter!

How time flies. The five B Litter kittens are five years old today.

So Happy Birthday to Bailey (Stoli), Baxter (Caesar), Barney (Remy), Byron (Archie) and Biko.

Here’s a flashback to when they were just tiny. They are with their mother, Calina. Their father is Harley.

Available now: the charming Otis

Siberian kitten Otis at five months old, 24 Sep 2017

UPDATE: Otis has been purchased, and will be moving to Christchurch in a few days.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the family who adopted Otis have had to return him.

As much as we love having Otis back with us at Seacliffe Siberians, he does need to find his forever home as soon as possible. He is five months old and still a playful kitten.

Otis is a handsome male tabby who is very affectionate and has a wonderfully soft coat.

Although he is a pedigreed Siberian (his parents are Ksana and Felix) he is not hypoallergenic. His Fel d1 level is “Mild-Normal” meaning he is suitable for a family with mild or no allergies.

If you know anyone who is looking for a very special little cat (he’s good with children too) please let them know.

Thank you.

This bed is ‘just right’ for Bailey

Siberian cat Stoli

“Aria has a bed for her toys, and Stoli rather fancies it for himself. Often Aria will tuck him in with a blanket and toy rabbit too. He really puts up with whatever she does!”
– Emily, Sep 2017

Got this nice photo and note from Emily. She and Mike, and their daughter Aria, have Stoli (ex Bailey) from our B Litter.

Stoli is well-travelled, having lived with Emily and Mike in Hong Kong for a couple of years before returning to Auckland.

Hoku is sinking

Caption this? Hoku in the sink.

Maybe she’s waiting for her bath?

Or thinks it’s a good place to hide?

Our lovable and mischievous Hoku in the sink – a popular spot for cats, it seems.

Farley and friends

Farley is a blue tabby with white Siberian born at Seacliffe Siberians on New Year’s Day 2014. Now almost four years old, Farley lives with Vicki and her family in Auckland.

Farley is as loving and laid back as ever. He’s also one BIG cat. In the evenings he comes and lies beside me on the sofa (3-person sofa) and stretches out so he takes up two and a bit of the seats!

He has also got a fan in Zain, who is just fascinated with him. Farley will rampage around the room chasing a toy and Zain watches in admiration and total awe. Farley also likes to pop his head up and over the high chair tray while I’m feeding Zain just to say “hi”, but really to check that Zain isn’t eating something that he thinks he wants.

As I write this now, Farley is savaging Ada’s soft toy crocodile. He definitely hasn’t lost his cheeky side.
