Siberians Available

Andy took these quick photos of Marishka enjoying the sun the other day. Marishka has been spayed and is looking for a retirement home. 


Marishka has a super character and is very playful but loves to sit on a lap in an evening. She is one of our Siberians who enjoys sitting on a knee. If you think you can offer a knee for Marishka to sleep on then please email kittens@alexandrite-siberian-kittens.co.uk

Marishka is 2 years old and a lovely spotted Brown tabby and White. 

Ralph has now been reserved and will be going to his new home early July. 

We are also looking for a home for Mojo (photo below). Mojo is a little bit quiet but is a sweet girl and has been a super mum here. 


Mojo is 3 years old and a gorgeous warm Brown Classic tabby. 

Both girls are ready to go to their new homes and are looking forward to their next adventures. 

Please email kittens@alexandrite-siberian-kittens.co.uk or call (evening is a good time to call 01270569358) if you would like to arrange to meet Marishka or Mojo. 

We would love to keep all our girls but it's not fair on them and they deserve that one to one relationship which is difficult to achieve in a multi cat environment. Please do not think it is easy for us to let our girls go, we have spent a great deal of time with them and love them both but we have to do what is best for them. So finding homes where they are the only cat or part of a smaller family is the best thing for them. Please only genuine enquiries, if you arrange to see the girls we will not have kittens available to view.

Siberian Kittens and Adults

Well it's a bit quieter here but still lots to do as I am behind with sorting out kitten photos and sending out to families on the Waiting List and Enquiry List. This was due to a bad week for me last week with my usual issues and a generous number of migraines! Why have one when you can have three! So I was pretty useless last week. I know it sounds lame but it was a difficult week and I'm sorry I've not got photos sorted yet. Hopefully won't be long and we think they are worth the wait. 

We are also evaluating a few in Gems litter for possible breed or show so kittens might become available at a later stage. If you see a breeder does have kittens available please don't feel pressured by other breeders that these breeders aren't any good or they should be avoided. There seems to be some scare tactics going around which I think is pretty poor show of the breeders who are doing it. We do sometimes have kittens available due to changes here or where they were going. It is not a bad reflection on the kitten or us. It just means things happen or the kittens were so damn fabulous we couldn't make our mind up quick enough! 

So for a quick update, all kittens are doing well and they all show such amazing different characters. They are so fun to watch and play with. We forget how young they are as they are exploring outside their kitten room and tackling the stairs. There will be no stopping them now!

Alexandrite SiberiansThis little guy, well not so little anymore will be going to his new family at the weekend. He is such a happy guy and we will miss him but hopefully he will have lots of new adventures. Spook will have to make do with his mum, Andy and I to play with. Unfortunately neither Andy or I are very good at chase around the sofa ;)

We are also looking for homes for a couple of our retired girls, both Mojo and Marishka have been spayed and healing well. The girls have also been chipped and are just waiting for their new home to be treated like princesses. 

We also have a young boy Ralph who is looking for a home. He is a very handsome, striking silver classic and white. Ralph has been a stud here and we had some gorgeous kittens from him. And compared to some of the breeding boys I've seen recently in the UK he is one hell of a good looking Siberian but he is a quiet gentle giant and we both feel a life on the sofa in a less busy household is more suited to his needs. At the end of the day, yes he is a stunning boy and has been a great dad but his needs come first. So if you aren't looking for a Siberian kitten or would like company for a kitten a young adult is a great choice. I will be updating the blog page Available Alexandrite Siberians and Kittens with photos this week of the adults and I will be sending out photos of kittens to the families on our waiting list first and then our enquiry list. If you have any questions about our young adults or kittens please email kittens@alexandrite-siberian-kittens.co.uk for more details.

Alexandrite Siberian Kittens

Just a quick update to say thank you to all the families who have signed up to the enquiry form. I have sent out a Welcome email to everyone.


I just need to say and I really hope to have not given the impression I don't like emails. That's not the case I've just found it hard to keep track of everyone's preferences. If you have any extra information or questions which aren't covered by the Welcome email and the FAQs on the blog then please email me, you can reply to the Welcome email that uses the main Alexandrite email address. 

Alexandrite Siberians

The kittens are doing well and are all being weaned now on to solids. Where have the last few weeks gone?!


Andy is hoping to get photos in the next week or so. We will then decide who is available at that point, some kittens might be kept as "under assessment" while we see how they develop. This means the kitten could be staying here but they could become available at a later stage. 


This lovely photo is of little Dottie (as we call her) I think it's another great photo taken by Andy. Dottie and her siblings have all been reserved and will be going off to their new homes in just over a week. We will miss these little monkeys!

Alexandrite Siberians Kitten News

Just a couple of gorgeous photos of all our kittens who have now found homes. Andy took a load on Sunday and I could have posted them all to the blog. It must be a combination of gorgeous Siberian Kittens and Andy being so fabulous with the camera. It's lovely though to be able to sends lots of cute kitten photos out to families. 

I love how Andy manages to capture great shots of their personalities and the one of Pantera's with her handsome Blue and White boy with a look enough to say "How many girls do I live with?!", is so funny. 

The time seems to have flown by and we can't believe they will be going off to new homes soon. Vet checks and vaccinations went well so it's just paperwork to print before they go off on their next big adventure. 

Kitten News
We have had the arrival of our Spring/Summer kittens and we've had the surprise of a super litter of gorgeous Lynx (Tabby) Points. It's hard to tell quite yet but some are with White. 

At first looks we have some promising looking kittens and the last time I felt like this the little kitten in question went on to be the FIRST UK bred Siberian to achieve the TICA LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT Title. That's only awarded with an International Win and two Regional Wins over a 3 year period. This really is an amazing achievement so we know this litter has potential and with this in mind Andy and I are open to a kitten going for breeding or show. Please contact us via the enquiry form and once we have more details and photos we will be contacting families on the list. You can also email kittens@alexandrite-siberian-kittens.co.uk or call us but please still complete the form. 

We also have Silver and White tabbies so a gorgeous rainbow of colours this year. 

Retired Girls and Young Adult Available
This year we will retiring some of gorgeous girls. We will have a mixture of Brown and Silver Tabbies. All Siberian Adults will be neutered and vet checked. If you think you would love to be owned by a Siberian and don't want the kitten phase or want an adult first to add to at a later stage. This is a great way to fall in love with the Siberian breed. Retired Siberians have a lot to offer and at the end of the day all kittens end up adults, some of ours seem to grow too quick and are soon adult size, look at Kimball and Jamie and Akiro and going back to the beginning Mishka. All big boys at 5 - 6 months of age so please don't be too quick to discount an older Siberian. You can sign up for hearing about any retired or young adults through the Enquiry List form attached to the blog. 

We are super happy to announce gorgeous Anjanka aka Jenks has found a new home not too far away with a lovely family. We thank them for giving Jenks an opportunity for a loving retirement home. Jenks is such a cuddly girl and we wish her new family lots of cuddles off Jenks in the future. 

Enquiry List Form
Thank you to everyone who has completed the form and I am planning to send out an email this week. I was hoping to sooner but last week wasn't great for me and when I don't feel well I'd rather spend time with kittens than doing emails. Well who wouldn't?! 

So thank you for being patient and we will be in touch very soon.

Kitten News & New Enquiry Form

Aren't we cute!!!

I couldn't resist posting these photos of Pantera's little ones all reaching for the toy. Andy really knows how to take fabulous photos of our Alexandrite Siberian Kittens but it's the mums and dads who make it easier for him by having such cute kittens. All of Pantera's kittens are now reserved but we have had some new babies arrive, details to follow soon.

To help us manage our future enquiries we have now created an additional page on the blog called "Alexandrite Enquiry List". This form will enable families to quickly complete their email and preferences eg We are looking for: a kitten, young adult or older Siberian. The form is then submitted to a program called MailChimp which we can then use to send out emails and at any point families can unsubscribe from receiving emails.

There really is one reason why we have done this and it's due to my ongoing health issues. I really don't know how I will be from one day to the next and since the start of the year I have had a number of bad flare ups. Due to me feeling so poorly we haven't been able to manage or respond to emails promptly and we both really hate that. We want to keep families updated but the old way is making this too difficult. So we really hope that everyone understands why we are doing this and will hopefully see the benefits in the future. This doesn't mean we won't reply to other emails on contrary we are hoping this gives us more opportunity to keep up to date with all emails.

Therefore if you have emailed us recently and would like to join our enquiry list, please go to our new page "Alexandrite Enquiry List" and complete your details and preferences. It will only take a couple of minutes.

Over the next year we are also looking for homes for some of our Siberian adults so if you think you would prefer a less boisterous Siberian, then a Siberian adult might be right for you. All adults are neutered and vet checked including an annual booster, flea and worm treatment.

Siberian Adult - Alexandrite Anyanka

Andy took these photos yesterday of our beautiful Anyanka a 7 year old Siberian, who has one of the most loving characters. Our friends Mim and Simon came over yesterday and Anyanka aka Jenks took full advantage of some extra knees for the day. She loved all the extra fussing and at one point was well literally glued to Simon's knee! It was so cute.

If you think you have enough love in your life to share some of it with Jenks, please email kittens@alexandrite-siberian-kittens.co.uk or call 01270569358.

Please only email to meet Anyanka if you are serious about an older cat. Jenks does have access to a safe enclosed outdoor space which she loves but she would be happy as an indoor only cat too. Jenks is up to date with her vaccine and flea/worm control. Jenks would be ok with a family with children but please remember and this goes for kittens too cats are not toys and they will only interact with you if they feel safe and loved.

UPDATE 19th May 2014 - Gorgeous Jenks has now gone to her new home.

Happy Easter & Kitten Update

Andy and I and our furry family wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter and share some lovely photos of Catalena and her baby girls.

We also wanted to update the blog with where we are with kittens and the Waiting List. Both Catalena's and Pantera's kittens have now all been reserved. We are waiting for our next litters to arrive and we will take a maximum of 4 families for the Waiting List. If you would like to reserve one of our kittens we do recommend joining the Waiting List as we have had to let families down this time who wanted one of Catalena's and Pantera's sweet kittens. Please remember if you do want to join the Waiting List and have specific preferences we cannot guarantee colour and gender. We always tell the girls the requests but they usually don't listen to us and sometimes we end up with the complete opposite!

It is a non-refundable deposit of £50 to join the Waiting List. When the kittens are born and once old enough for proper photos at around 4-6 weeks of age I work through the list in a chronological date order. I will then update the blog with any kittens still available. We cannot at this time accept families to the Waiting List who need to check allergies or who have had an allergy test at another breeders.

This year we will be retiring some of our lovely girls. This is really hard for us to do but it is better for them. We are also looking for a home for Alexandrite Raphael, he is 18 months old and a handsome Black Silver Classic and White. We still have available gorgeous Alexandrite Anyanka. Anyanka is very loveable and purrs continuously. She is 7 years old but you wouldn't know it to see her. For Jenks and our sake please only arrange to see Jenks if your are serious about an older Siberian. Please do not ask to visit any of adults if it is really a kitten you wanted. Please email kittens@alexandrite-siberian-kittens.co.uk for more information about our available adults or to join the Waiting List.
