Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

A little bit late...

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year
from us all here at Alexandrite Siberians xx

Andy and I wanted to say a bit thank you to everyone who has adopted one of our kittens over the last year and in previous years for keeping us updated with how the bubbas are doing.

It has been a mixed year for us with the sadness of losing Kahlan. We miss you so much Kahlan, our first Christmas without you has been hard. The kittens have been helping and in honor of Kahlan they have been doing their best to climb the Christmas tree and pull the decorations off. You will never be forgotten Little Bob and we know how you loved this time of year xxx

Thanks to my Mum & Dad for having us yesterday for tea and for being there over the year and baby sitting while we were away. Also thanks to Andy's Mum & Dad for helping to baby sit too.

Also a big thanks to our fellow breeder friends for all your support, and for just being there when things sometimes get a bit crazy or sad.

Here's to next Year and happier, brighter times...

In loving memory of Kahlan, our sweet Little Bobtail xxx

Kittens Available

We have a very sweet girl Alexandrite Autumn who is looking for her forever home. She is a brown tabby and very cute, with a sweet nature to match.

Her parents are Musrafy Galina and TICA QGC Rossity Cimus, with parents as gorgeous as this she is going to be a little stunner.

Autumn is ready to go to her new home now, so if you think you can offer this very cute girl a forever home after all the Christmas madness is over then please contact me, email

We also have Alexandrite Merlin available who is a Black Smoke and White boy, his parents are Alexandrite Anyanka and TICA QGC Alexandrite Angelus Mishka.

These are the last couple of kittens available from here at Alexandrite Siberians, our next litter of bundles of fun is due mid February 2010.

Show News - Here come the boys!!!

I have been feeling pretty poorly lately so it was at one point an unknown whether we would go to the Spoticat TICA show last Saturday in Coventry but we did in the end and even though it was a really long day for us all we are very happy we did. We took Paavo, Phoenix and baby Akiro and this is how well they did:

Alexandrite Akiro
  • 6th Best Allbreed Kitten Final (65 kitten count) - Toni Jones
  • 7th Best Longhair Kitten Final (27 longhair kitten count) - Vlada Benynia
  • 3rd Best Kitten Final - Vicki-Jo Harrison (Training ring)
  • 6 out of 7 Best of Breeds - 3 Siberian Kittens shown including Akiro
We were so pleased for Akiro he is a sweet boy and after going through a lanky stage, he is really filling out now and still growing like a weed! He is 5 months old and 4.2kg now! No wonder my foot hurt the other week when he decided to jump down from my arms and drop on it!

IW SGC Cooncreole Paavo
  • 2nd Best Allbreed Cat Final (75 cat count) - Monika Dany
  • 9th Best Allbreed Cat Final (77 cat count) - Lynn Judge
  • 3rd Best Longhair Cat Final (34 longhair count) - Vlada Benynia
  • 3 out of 6 Best of Breeds - 5 Siberian Cats shown including Paavo and Phoenix
Paavo was a star again and he had so much fun on the scratchy posts, but what a chunk to carry around, thank goodness Andy was there!

Alexandrite Phoenix Mishka
  • 3 out of 6 3rd Best of Breeds
No finals for handsome Phoenix but he behaved like a true gentlemen and looked after his baby boy Akiro all day.

Unfortunately we couldn't make the Regional Awards show dinner to collect Paavo's awards but our friend Maria very kindly picked his Regional Award and International Award up for us. Very excited to see what he got :-) Big thanks to Maria for collecting them for us.

At the Naturally TICA Show held in Elsecar in November Paavo got a Best Cat Final (49 cat count) in Robin Sessler's Ring and 2 Best of Breeds. Well done Paavo! Baby Akiro got 2 Best of Breeds.

The boys make us very proud and we are just so happy that they want to go to the shows. Well done boys!

Alexandrite Cookie & Alexandrite Fifi

Due to circumstances changing at the home Cookie and Fifi were going to they are now looking for their forever home. Cookie is a Golden Spotted and White and Fifi is a Brown Classic Tabby. Both girls are adorable, they are always together either playing or sleeping and we really want the two girls to go together still. So because of this Andy and I are looking for a home that will adopt them both at a substantial reduction to the usual adoption cost. Cookie and Fifi will be available to go to their new home from this weekend.

There are videos of Cookie and Fifi on the blog, you can find them by clicking on the label Tomintouls Dreamgirl Santa Fe.

If you think you can offer these two sweet girls a loving forever home please contact us either call or email I have photos of the two girls taken last night I just haven't had time to sort them out to put on the blog.
