We love to hear from people who have purchased a Siberian kitten from us, and to see how much joy they bring to their new homes. Here are a few testimonials:
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.

Suki has slotted into family life with ease. I never believed I would be able to have a kitty in my home, let alone enjoy the cuddles and the lap time I’ve been getting. I’ve always suffered from severe reactions to cats: sneezing, hives, itchy eyes, culminating in asthma.
My allergies were very, very mild when Suki first came home and have since all but disappeared! I still pinch myself and can’t believe how fortunate we are to have become her forever family.
Scott has made a 2-metre scratching post (thanks for the inspiration Neil) and she loves being high up. She plays with her ‘kitty tunnel’, scratching post (eternally grateful she only ever scratches there) assorted balls, toy mice and has discovered the basket that holds all our balls of wool! I’ll often see Suki on one of many window sills, watching the birds. She makes a strange little clicking sound when she sees them.
In the mornings she’s shown an interest in running water from the shower or basins. She will play under a running tap and sit outside the shower door telling us she wants in.
She’s brought a ton of laughter, smiles and some tears (mostly mine because I’m a sook and love her so much) and I feel we’re lucky to have all found each other. We all appreciate your kindness and care for Suki and our family. It was great visiting and taking the time to feel at ease with a kitty after all these years. I had some serious doubts about being able to ever care for a cat again and I’m so glad that we found you and now have a have a new member of the family.

And he loves his scratching post. 🙂

Farley is never too far away and drunkenly walks in from wherever he’s been sleeping outside covered in leaves. He’s so laid back and just goes with the flow. He’s not overly set in a routine – if someone is around for cuddles or play he happily puts his plans aside. Everyone falls in love with him instantly.

As you can see Archie is well, big and very beautiful. He is basically a full-sized adult cat with still a bit of growing to go no doubt. He has settled really well and is truly part of the family. As you can see Holly is still the favourite in the family; she can do anything with him and he is more than happy, she had him tucked up on her bed the other day with a pillow and blanket. 🙂
He is definitely still wee mad Archie but without the wee bit. I enjoy buying cat toys and today he was spoilt with a door hanging mouse on elastic. It has proven a big hit already.

Caesar is doing well! He still thinks he’s the baby of the house, though, so I think it was a bit confusing for him when our baby arrived, and he no longer had exclusive rights to my lap in the evenings from 7pm onwards.
He is an outdoor/indoor cat since we moved into this house, which came equipped with a cat door. When he comes in, he bursts through the door and announces his arrival loudly with happy meows and headbutts. At dusk Caesar comes in for the night, and we lock his door.
He’s very much a dog-like cat! If we run into each other outside on our way for a walk, he will follow us around the neighbourhood. He also goes over to the elementary school (which our son attends) daily and has gotten to know the kids there, who have named him Snowy. Inside, Caesar follows us around the house from room to room. He like to be where the action is!

Saffy is doing beautifully with us and is well loved by all. She has been enjoying time outside and comes back totally exhausted, covered in bits and pieces. She has been learning to hunt and has moved from bees to skinks! She’d really love one of the bantams from next door, but they are smart old ladies who know when to sidestep a silly young cat that looks like a big mop.
She is such a good fit for our family, so thank you very much.

Tinkerbell is so amazing and tolerant with the children.
We can’t believe how lucky we are.

Stoli writes: I thought you might like to see what I get up to, and how much I have grown. I am enormous! I have a big ruff developing, and am SO fluffy.
Every day I wake up having been snuggling in bed all night.
I eat breakfast, and then play in the bathroom, so I’m not on my own. I follow everyone, everywhere, all day long. I either run in and out the shower, jump in the sink, roll and skid on the mats, or destroy the toilet roll.
Otis (Cosmo) is so delightful. We all love him, including Peter and Sophie (who is not really an animal person). She seeks him out for cuddles, which makes us laugh. He has certainly added fun to our household.

Caci has settled in perfectly, and wheedled her way into everyone’s heart. She is very spirited and lots of fun. She and Mala (our Dalmatian dog) have settled well, licking each other’s muzzles after they have eaten, so no problems there. Everyone who has met her has fallen in love with her, and I think she is going to turn into a very pretty cat.

He likes spending part of the night on top of the covers on our bed curled up by one of us, and part of the night under the covers next to me. I’m guessing when it gets cooler out again he’ll spend more time under the covers.
The cat dancer you gave us and the feather toy-on-a-pole are his two favourite toys. We have a couple of perches set up by windows for him and he loves watching what’s happening outside.
He especially loves leaping and pouncing on flies on the windows. And although he loves looking outside, he doesn’t try to get out when we go in and out which is great.

We are absolutely delighted with our new kitten, Alexander. He’s a real sweetie and has coped beautifully with our noisy household and kids. As an asthmatic with a major cat allergy, it’s been wonderful being able to introduce a cat into our home without the usual debilitating side effects. Thanks to Judee and Neil!

Alfie has fitted in extremely well and quickly into our family and is very tolerant of Ollie and Luke and enjoy their company. He loves company, and loves to snuggle in for cuddles and pats.

Elmo is big, powerful and fluffy, with a calm and cheerful disposition. He pads down the hallways chirping greetings to us and loves to be with his people. Elu is the playful hunter, always willing to chase or jump for a ball or toy. He has a quick attack! Kevin says they are thunder and lightning! Even with several family members with allergies and asthma we have had no problems with these beautiful boys.
