Hello and welcome to my Siberian blog page. I must state right up front that I am a novice to blogging – so hang in there as I figure this out!
Introductions are in order:
Me – I am the sole human in this household. I am allergic to cats and have had a passionate love for them ever since my first cat “Boots” was given to me at the tender age of four. She was a gentle tuxedo and she and I were inseparable. Then – 5 years later, my heart was broken for the first time as she was given away due to my increasing allergies.
Marfa – my first Siberian kitten and I fell in love immediately and was soon to discover that Siberian cats are not like other cats! She was born to be Queen and never lets us forget it! She introduced me to the tight-wire walking, high jumping, and zany personality of the Siberian. Unlike other cats, she didn’t hide when people came to visit and we grew our cattery together.
Yegor – our King joined us several months later and he and Marfa became fast-friends. I had worried about the introduction of an intact male into my home – and Yegor has never caused a problem. He is a big love-bug and takes care of all his ladies with tenderness and intensity!
Next to join our growing cottage clan was Queen Kisa. She is a stunning black smoke and is the mother to us all. A soccer player and avid mouse fetcher – she keeps us all on our toes. As Marfa was born to be Queen, Kisa was born to reconcile. She will care for all the kittens and help keep the peace if fur gets ruffled.
The most recent addition to Cottage Kittens is Szabina. She scampers and plays hide and seek with all – her kittens included! And she is known as the resident kitty thief, as she has been known to “borrow” other queens’ kittens to add to her own litter!
Currently, we have 3 kittens that are 7 weeks old and just discovering the big wonderful world beyond mama Mafa. Szabina is in labor and will be adding her beautiful kittens into the mix! So we will have a house-full of kittens to love and enjoy and I cannot think of a better way to spend these chilly winter evenings!
