Alexandrite Kitten News Autumn 2016

Summer seems to be fading now and went far too fast! We did over summer have the arrival of some sweet kittens from mums Cataleya and her twin Catalena, both Silver Spotted Tabbies. Dad is the handsome Little Grumps, a Black Smoke. The kittens won't be ready to go to new homes until end of October and beginning of November, hence our Autumn kittens. This is after they've had both vaccinations, micro-chipped and vet checks. There is a mixture of Silver and Brown Tabbies, Black and Black Smoke.

We are still deciding how best to tackle the large list of families who have contacted us about kittens. Potentially we have a couple of approaches but think we will post photos to the blog of available kittens for families to register an interest in a kitten. This can be done via email to kittens@alexandrite-Siberian-kittens.co.uk or call 01270569358, evening time not after 9pm. If you do call in the day please leave a message and we will call back.

We will then give priority to the families who have enquired with us already and this will be done based on the date we were first contacted. We will also try to contact everyone to let them know we will be updating the blog with news and photos.

This approach seemed to work quite well earlier in the year. We hope to have photos on the blog by the end of the week of both litters.

And one of the dad handsome Little Grumps, who is named after his Uncle Grumpy and not because of his personality as he is one of the sweetest gentlest boys you could meet.

Alexandrite Siberian Kitten News and Enchanted Colouring Book Available

We've had a busy start to the year with kittens and then designing our first colouring book, which we talked about in our last post.

First up kitten news, we will have kittens due middle to end of April and the parents are Catalena (Black Silver Spotted) and Little Grumps (Black Smoke). Both are very sweet and these are Little Grumps first kittens so we can't wait to meet them. This means kittens will be ready to go to new homes beginning of August. I know that seems forever away but this year is going so fast.

Next, we have just opened our first Etsy Shop, Nog Pepper Me and the first items available are to do with colouring in but we do plan to have more crafts available including cross stitch and some lovely Siberian items too. These will include pictures, coasters, cards, mugs, cushions and lots more. Andy has taken so many beautiful photos over the years we can't wait to finally use them. 

Note from Jo: Thanks to my family and friends for all the support and encouragement while I've been creating my first colouring book. It's been hard and most days lots of will power and pain meds but I got there in the end.
