Ballana’s kittens: S-Litter 2014

We are accepting applications, and have kittens available for adoption. Email or visit our “KITTENS” page for details.

We have bred Siberians for twenty years, and now raise kittens as a cooperative. Working with other families allows us to share the joys of breeding with other families and their children. Raise one litter at a time gives each kitten more time, attention, and training that makes them treasured in their new homes.

Our kittens are confident, obedient to simple commands, and make wonderful pets. Before they leave, we teach them to be gentle with little children, not to claw furniture, and to obey simple commands.

Crumpled pieces of paper and kitten toys are scattered around our house. Before putting on our shoes, we check them for fuzzy mice and crinkle balls. As a breed, Siberians have great personalities, quiet voices, and make wonderful companions.

Siberians are often called “Hypoallergenic,” but this is misleading.  About 15% of Siberians have Fel d 1 allergen levels suitable for families with moderate to severe cat allergies. Our Allergy Chart © helps families understand the severity of cat allergies. Compare the list to how you would react when snuggling with a normal cat. These reactions roughly correspond to skin test allergy tests (welt/wheal 1-5)

Allergen          Allergic Reaction by Severity                  © 2005, © revised 2024
Untested  – Allergen levels vary from very low to normal.
Normal – Not for homes with cat allergies
Medium – Mild eye irritation, stuffy nose, scratchy throat, mild symptoms
Low – Runny nose, eye irritation, coughing, few sneezes, light itching
Very Low – Light sneezing, runny nose, swollen eyes, mild rash, mild asthma
Extra Low – ER visits, rashes, hives, facial swelling, asthma, short of breath

Our kittens are registered with The International Cat Association.
TICA membership #15762

We maintain two related websites.
Kitten Testing sells allergen testing kits to Siberian breeders.  The website has information on testing and a current list of breeders in the US & Canada licensed to use our charts and to allergen test kittens.

Siberian Research was a non-profit association created to study diseases affecting Siberians, primarily HCM. We maintain the website to increase awareness of health issues affecting Siberians, but have not updated health registries since 2014.
