Happy New Year!

A quick note to say our website will be updated soon and kitten plans added....almost there.

We are hoping for a couple of litters this year all being well an will open our list again once we are sure kittens are on their way. Please note, we only have litters to improve the next generation of Siberian Cats. We do not breed excessively and for profit; we are not a business or pet shop. We only look to place our kittens in suitable permanent homes with owners who will love and care for their kittens forever.

There are an increasing numbers of breeders of the Siberian Cat now in the UK. Some have the health and well being of Siberian Cat at heart, others are just churning out kittens for money. Please be aware that breeders of excessive numbers of kittens in a year are kitten farms whatever they profess to be. Be cautious of cheap imports as they are often from unscrupulous breeders and may not have legitimate paperwork..

Here at Witchfyre we have been involved with the Siberian Cat since 2005 and have bred a small number of kittens over that time. We do not profess to be experts as we learn something new each litter and from each individual cat. But we know what we like and consider good health above film star looks, happily are usually fortunate to have both!

We are grateful to those breeders who have allowed their kittens to be adopted by us over the years and delighted by the many adopters who still have our babies and send news from time to time. We have some excellent original lines which combined have produced some amazing babies of all colours, of which we are very proud.

We have our fingers crossed for some lovely fluff bundles this year.

November Updates

Nothing much to report; cats are tucked in warm and cozy for the winter.

Will post kitten plans next month, we have some tentative ideas, but it will depend on cats!

Once plans are posted we will open our waiting list again. We will only be taking a few names as we do not breed excessively, preferring quality rather than quantity. If all goes well we should have our first 2018 kittens in the spring.

I will have some adults retiring next year as we reduce the size of our cattery. We will have a separate wait list for adults. However if you are thinking of a kitten and would consider an adult at the same time, let us know and we can offer you possible combinations.

For now, enjoy the rest of November and check back soon.

October update

Winter is coming.....

So, no kittens this year as Laska did not take :(
We will put our 2018 plans up early in the new year.

We have some British Shorthair adults available . Please contact us if you are looking for an older cat.

Also a young Siberian female has come available. Lagetha and her brother Floki went to live with Abida and  family. Her brother settled but she has not, so is looking for a home without young children. For more details contact me and I will forward your details.

Our Neva masquerade site will be upgraded soon. Check out next month.
