Jenika enjoyed helping with paperwork. She loved spending time in my office and was a wonderful file shredder.  


Kitten Wait List - March 15th,  2022

Our wait list exceeds a year for low allergen kittens so we are not currently accepting new applications.  We respond to email daily (though sometimes get behind), so if we have not responded in a few days, send us a reminder. Due to time constraints, we limit phone calls to families with reservations.

We are currently accepting West Coast reservations for “Normal" allergen kittens (homes without cat allergy).

Options for families with cat allergies

We license Fel d1 saliva test kits to other Siberian catteries in the US & Canada.  For more information, Kitten Testing.  

Buying an untested kitten:  Testing in-person with kittens 12 weeks or older is a good indicator of allergic reactions. Even low allergen matings can produce normal allergen kittens, so please obtain medical advice before exposing children with severe cat allergies to Siberians.  

 1.  Start with the kitten close to your face, (but not against the skin) and waft air from the kitten towards your face.  If there is any itchy nose eyes or throat, or odd “smell”, Stop testing and gently rinse your face.  If the reaction subsides quickly, test with a different kitten. If the reaction persists, stop and wait for another day.

 2.  Next, briefly place face-in-fur with the kitten that caused the least reaction.  If there is no reaction, hold the kitten to the face for a minute, and then wait for 10-15 minutes.  Cat allergens build up in the home for six months, and reactions will get worse with time. Do not take home a kitten if there is any reaction.

Kittens should be at least 12 weeks old.  We do not advise testing or purchase of kittens younger than 12 weeks in homes with cat allergy.  Younger kittens do not produce stabile amounts of allergen.

 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We email families on our waitlist and post availability on the website when kittens are available - and allow three days for kitten selection. We are a small cooperative of families raising kittens underfoot in the home with love and attention.  Kittens raised one-litter at a time are far more confident, gentler with children, and make nicer pets. Kittens leave for new homes when they are 12 - 16 weeks old.

Wait list: The wait for a kitten from our cattery is averages 6-12 months for normal allergen kittens, and 12-24 months for kittens in the lowest allergen levels.  

Applications: Our Kitten Application is not a contract - but simply a request to be added to our wait list.  We do not require or accept deposits.  Kittens are offered to families based on the order of the wait list shown below. 

Shipping:  We are located near Salem Oregon. While we prefer kittens are picked up at our cattery, we also ship on the West Coast flights using Alaska Airlines from PDX.   Air Cargo fees have doubled in 2022.  Estimated cost for shipping, rabies and flight certificate, carrier and transport is $750. Kittens flying with their owners will be charged $150 for vet visit, flight certificate & rabies vaccine.

Preferences:  We allow a few “skips” for color, gender, or personal reasons.  After that time, we may drop or  move reservations to the bottom of our waitlist.  We cannot honor color preferences in homes with high-risk allergies, as few kittens test in the lowest range. 

Returns: All kittens may be returned for a full refund within 15-days for any reason.  We guarantee placement of tested kittens for 90 days.  We reserve the right to charge $400 and require a vet exam for kittens returned after 15 days from the date of sale.

Allergies: Reactions to horses or rabbits are complex, and low Fel d1 allergen Siberians may still cause severe reactions.  After reviewing your application, we will call with any questions.  We are alway willing to send fur samples as needed.  If there are complex allergies in your family, please review our Secondary Allergies page.

Prices:  Kitten prices are effective January 2022.

Tested kittens are priced based on their individual allergen level.  We test most low allergen matings, so our untested litters tend to be higher allergen and are reserved for families without cat allergies.  

Our prices for the lowest allergen kittens may be higher than other catteries, though our guarantee is gracious and easy. We work with families where high-risk allergies (anaphylaxis, hives, asthma) are present, and with individuals who have reacted to other Siberians.  

The Cat Allergen Chart © below was created by our cattery and is helpful in understanding reactions.  Compare the levels below to the worst symptoms you expect from snuggling a normal-allergen cat.

$2000   Untested             Allergen levels will vary from low to normal.
$2000   Normal                Normal (high) allergen, not for homes with cat allergies
$2800   Medium Low      M
