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 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.
