Kitten Plans News

Well the year is flying by!!

I haven't had chance to update our website with our next planned litters so here are the plans for summer....

We have repeated last years mating between TICA Champion Alexandrite Phoenix Mishka (Golden Classic and White Tabby) and Musrafy Galina (Blue Tabby). We could have Blue and Brown Tabbies all with or without white, patterns could be Classic, Spotted and Mackerel. We had some wonderful kittens in this mating last year including pretty Morganna (Mojo) who we kept and the handsome King Arthur. Galina is due at the end of July 2011. Kittens would be ready to go to their new homes end of October 2011.

Our next litter will be TICA International Winner Supreme Grand Champion Cooncreole Paavo (Seal Lynx (Tabby) Point) and Alexandrite Memphis (Black Silver Tabby). Memphis is the litter sister to TICA Regional Winner Champion Alexandrite Hendrix. We could have Brown and Silver Tabbies and if we are lucky Seal Lynx (Tabby) Points too. Memphis is due the beginning of August 2011, with kittens ready to go beginning of November 2011. This is the first time we have done this mating but we are hoping for some lovely kittens who have mum's sweet nature and dad's laid back approach to life!

If you would like to register an interest in either of these litters, please email kittens@alexandrite-siberian-kittens.co.uk

Fe's Kittens First Photos

Fe's kittens are just a week old today and growing into fat little sausages. We took some quick photos this morning on my phone so not great quality but you can see how cute they are, and we didn't want to stress Fe too much.

Fe is looking after the babies brilliantly and you can see how proud she is of them.

In the litter we have a great mix of colours,
  • Red Boy
  • Classic Silver Tortie and White Girl
  • Brown Hi-White Girl
  • Brown and White Girl
  • Brown Mackerel Girl
  • Silver Tabby Boy
At the moment all kittens are under assessment, but you are welcome to join the waiting list by emailing kittens@alexandrite-siberian-kittens.co.uk

We do have some enquiries already for Fe's litter so if you are interested please let us know soon so you don't miss out.

The best way to keep in touch with "Alexandrite Kitten News" is to submit your email to follow the blog. This can be found underneath "Alexandrite Websites" list and is titled "Follow Alexandrite Siberians". I have submitted our email so I know this works a treat.

A couple of group photos, the little Red boy stands out

Red Boy, I think he already has a fan club! And Nog has some competition!!

Classic Silver Torbie and White Girl, reminds me of Fe when she was little

Kitten News

After making us have numerous sleepless nights listening for babies to arrive on the baby monitor, Fe finally had the babies yesterday. She was due last Wednesday so I was really stressed by Saturday!

She had 6 babies, a mixture of colours including one red boy who stands out in the litter! He is our first proper red and it makes me chuckle when I see him :-)

I will update with more news next weekend when the kittens are a bit older and mum won't be too stressed.

Our older kittens have all been to the vets for their first check and vaccination. All were very brave and back to scamping when they got home!

Andy and I went to the Siberian Cat Club AGM yesterday and it went well, the club is definitely moving in the right direction now and it was a great afternoon.
