Today was “naming day” for the four P litter kittens, and we’ll be announcing one name each day, starting today!

Pavlov is a male seal lynx point, and the only colour point kitten in this litter. His parents are Hoku and Felix.

Thank you everyone who suggested names. Lots of great ideas and, as always, a hard choice for our naming committee. 🙂

All the P kittens have moved onto solid food in the past few days, and they have decided to move out of the nursing box. So now, when we go into their room, we generally find them snuggled up together on a little sheepskin on the sofa. They use a miniature climbing toy to get up onto it.

See more on the Pavlov page.

Relaxed? You bet I am!

15-week-old Siberian kitten Nala, 31 July 2017

15-week-old Siberian kitten Nala, 31 July 2017

Here’s Siberian kitten Nala who now lives with Jamie, Taliah, Meila and Carter on Auckland’s North Shore. She’s a pretty chilled kitten, wouldn’t you say?

Taliah wrote to us a few weeks ago:

It’s only been two days but Nala has slotted into our family so easily. She is purring VERY loudly on my lap as I write this email to you. She has her nose snuggled into my jumper and is curled up in a fluffy ball. If I am reclining slightly she climbs up and snuggles under my chin – so cute!

I have attached a couple of photos for you. You are welcome to use these on your site. There is a hilarious one of her lying asleep, almost upside down, on the back of a couch. I think it demonstrates that she is feeling relaxed and at home here already!

As you had explained to us, Nala is extremely social. She follows us around and starts purring loudly as soon as we pick her up. We are loving how much of a lap cat she is and how gentle and cuddly she is. Nala is eating well and took to using her litter tray straight away.

The kids have been amazing with her. They are learning when she wants play time (which is most of the time) and when she wants some quiet time. Her favourite toy is the little tunnel – which she zips through all the time! She sits on my lap in the evenings and is very good at being transplanted onto her blanket, having a treat and then going off to sleep at ‘lights out’ time. We didn’t hear any crying at night time.

You have raised a beautiful fur baby, thank you! We are in love already.

Otis is looking for a home

Siberian kitten Otis at 14 weeks old, 10 Aug 2017

Here’s a recent photo of Siberian kitten Otis, taken the day before his 15-week birthday.

Otis is a black/brown tabby. His three brothers in the O Litter were all seal lynx points, so Otis is definitely special. 🙂

Otis is a lovely fellow but his Fel d1 allergen level is “mild/normal”, so he needs to go to a family where there are only mild allergies or no allergies.

Oscar is looking for a home

Siberian kitten Oscar at 15 weeks old, 11 Aug 2017

Siberian kitten Oscar at 15 weeks old, 11 Aug 2017

Well, here we are again, with a beautiful Siberian kitten ready for a new home. Oscar is a 15-week-old seal lynx point, a solid and playful kitten with a ready purr.

Oscar has a Fel d1 allergen level of “medium/low” so he is suitable for a family with mild to moderate allergies.

You may be wondering why we have several kittens available for immediate purchase when our waiting list is so long. The reason is that the O Litter kittens all tested at either “medium/low” or “mild/normal” whereas the people on the waiting list need kittens with lower allergen levels.

So, it’s an unusual situation for us, but a great opportunity for families with moderate, mild, or no allergies to get a lovable Seacliffe kitten. Please help us spread the word!

And if you need a lower-allergen kitten, don’t despair. We have the P Litter growing quickly! 🙂

Here’s a photo taken yesterday of Siberian kitten Ollie, who will be 15 weeks old tomorrow.

Ollie is a seal lynx point, one of three in a litter of four kittens (the fourth is a tabby).

Ollie’s a lovely fellow but his Fel d1 allergen level is “mild/normal”, so he needs to go to a family where there are only mild allergies or no allergies.

Five sleepy Siberian kittens

Allergen testing of the four O Litter kittens has been completed, and the samples have arrived at the lab in the United States. We should have results in a week or so.

All but one of the N Litter kittens have gone to their new homes, with Niko scheduled to depart early next week. Meantime he is enjoying the company of the O kittens as you can see from this photo I took last evening.

Siberian kitten Nadia at home with new name

Nadia‘s new family in Auckland has renamed her Pushinka, which means “fluffy” in Russian.

If the name Pushinka sounds familiar, it was the name of one of US President John F Kennedy’s dogs, a gift from Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev.

The N kittens head out into the world

It’s been a bittersweet few days at Seacliffe Siberians as we farewell the N kittens. But, as usual, they’ve gone to wonderful, loving homes. And we’ve enjoyed getting photos, such as this one of Nuri, focused on Da Bird toy.

Nuri now lives with Jan and her family in Auckland.

Also this week, we have begun allergen testing the O Litter. If all goes according to schedule, we should have results late next week.
