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.

The four P Litter kittens will be eight weeks old tomorrow. On Monday, they’ll be off to The Vets for their first vaccinations.

These little guys are growing so quickly. As you can see, Pico already wants to go to work with me!

Nuri at four months old

Four-month-old Siberian kitten Nuri

Four-month-old Siberian kitten Nuri, 29 Aug 2017

We received this nice note from Nuri‘s family in Auckland yesterday:

Nuri, on the climbing post that Graeme built

Nuri, on the climbing post that Graeme built, 11 Aug 2017

Nuri continues to thrive and bring such joy to our family. Graeme was enthusiastic from the first day and quickly built a super tower for Nuri to play on. Nuri takes a full-force run at the tower and swings around the pole onto the bucket. He pulls and wrestles with the toys on the bungy cords and takes them to his ‘crow’s nest’ after the final capture. He loves to be high and his location is near my desk so he can keep an eye on me and the birds flying by.

It is great to hear the stories from the other kittens and we see many personality similarities. Nuri loves to greet Kimberley when she comes home from work and settles next to her on the sofa in the evenings. Alex has not had any problems with his allergies and Nuri loves to play ping pong ball games and hide and seek with him.

We often nick name him Nuri Nu-nu when he is especially adorable, and he definitely lives up to his Instagram name Furry Purry Nuri.

We took Nuri for his neuter operation yesterday, and the vet said he was a very good patient and charmed them all with his play, despite being woozy after the op.

Thank-you again for all your nurturing and care to bring such wonderful pets to so many families.

Family portrait: the P Kittens

It’s not often that I manage to get a photo where everyone is looking the same direction. So this one has to go on the blog.

The P Kittens are doing great, with access to half the house now. They turned seven weeks old today.

Otis at his new home

The O Litter are 19 weeks old today and have all gone to their forever homes.

Zayne sent us this photo of Otis, illustrating the level of comfort expected by a Seacliffe Siberian. 🙂

One interesting note: none of the four O Kittens will be changing their names. So our team of name suggesters has done well. Thank you!

A basket of kittens – and mum too

Here’s that Buka basket again – one of our most popular cat toys!

Believe it or not, there are FOUR six-week-old kittens from the P Litter with their mum Hoku in each of these photos. The two black/brown tabbies are pretty hard to see.

Ollie and Hoku welcome spring sunshine

18-week-old Ollie and 2-year-old Hoku (one of our breeding females) catch some sun

18-week-old Ollie and 2-year-old Hoku (one of our breeding females) catch some sun, 4 Sep 2017

Our cats love sunshine, of which we’ve had a little bit the past few days, coinciding with the rumoured start of spring.

They also love our Buka basket which, although it now is looking pretty rough, provides a range of interesting positions for a cat to try!

Ollie, pictured here with Hoku, is available for immediate adoption to a family with mild/no allergies. If you know someone who would like to meet him, please have them get in touch with us as soon as possible.
