Healthy Siberian Kitten for Sale

Orange tabby siberian kitten for sale

Orange tabby Siberian kitten available

We have a cuddly orange tabby (red tabby) Siberian kitten available. He is a most adventurous, fun loving and affectionate little kitten. He may be nearly a solid red in appearance with a rich color which is exceedingly rare in our breed.

His name is Pendraig Pasha. He is out of our P Litter born on December 22, 2010 to Sunbeam Lilyana Krasa of Pendraig and Jorrah Karat. He is the last of a litter of five to find his home but we know they are out there, someone special for this fearless little lion in a kitten’s body. This time most buyers were interested in silvers or girls, but Pasha is unique and beautiful though he is not above a good kiss on his tummy and a tickle before he heads off to play more with his siblings.

Rawr!! I have the heart of a lion

He is used to children too, as he is handled daily by a three year old boy who thinks he’s Sonja in miniature.

Pasha loves his raw food diet and would love to teach his new owners how to feed raw diets and enjoy the benefits their cats enjoy. He could also go onto our Advanced or General Diets (with commercial foods) for families who could not do raw but when you see how much he enjoys it you may change your mind.

Pasha’s sire is large and his siblings from other litters have been of good size as well, especially the boys. He is a happy fellow and will bring you many years of happiness, laughter and joy. Are you his special home?

New Siberian Kittens at Pendraig

We welcome the P Litter, born December 22, 2010. The proud parents are Lily and Jorrah Karat who have yet again given us a good sized litter of healthy kittens in a rainbow of colors.

P Litter Siberian Kittens from Pendraig

Litter of Siberian Kittens born Dec 22 2010 at Pendraig

We are happy to announce the birth of Pendraig’s newest Siberian Cat litter, Litter P. This is a repeat litter of the successful pairing between TGC Jorrah Karat and our long time queen, Lily. We have 5 gorgeous kittens. 3 girls and 2 boys. We are happy to see more red males including 1 red silver mackerel and one bright red mackerel male. The females are a rainbow as we’ve come to expect from Lily with one silver mackerel, one brown classic torbie female with touches of red on toes and perhaps more that will show as she grows and one blue mackerel torbie female also lightly touched by cream (red) markings and she may possibly be one of the low grade silvers Lily often produces.

All the Siberian kittens are doing well with good weights, lovely coats and the girls have some serious “torbietude”. We are holding two females for evaluation for breeding/show potential homes (one retained for a future Pendraig queen). The rest are available to pet homes.

Lily’s kittens have been placed all over the United States in homes that have dogs, children, single adults and more. They seem to adjust to any situation and bring love and laughter to the families that adore them.

To see photos and find out availability of these kittens please check out our Siberian Kittens for Sale section on our website. Happy New Year!

Cat Vaccine Protocol

At Pendraig Siberians we follow the natural rearing model. That means we avoid vaccinations except those required by law because they are full of toxins and because they can damage the immune system.

For those people who choose to do the minimal vaccination schedule instead we recommend and require hat you follow the protocol developed by Dr. Jean Dodds which you can find here:

For more information about the dangers of vaccination, especially over-vaccination please read some of these wonderful articles.

Vaccination for Cats, Harmful or Helpful? by Dr. Don Hamilton published on Holisticat

"Vaccination is not as widely and unquestionably accepted today as it was in the past. Many pet guardians and veterinarians believe we have taken the concept much farther than its usefulness warrants. In twenty years of veterinary practice, I have made the transition from believing strongly in the protective power of vaccines to becoming continually more certain that they create at least as much illness as they have ever prevented. In truth, I now consider vaccination to be tantamount to animal abuse in most cases."
Read the entire article and help your cat achieve true wellness by being an informed cat owner.

Learn about the very real risk of Vaccine Area Sarcomas (deadly cancer) and how to best avoid it or mitigate the potential risk if you insist on vaccinating.

And lastly, learn what vaccinosis is, how to recognize it and what to do about it. Vaccinosis is the term used to define various adverse reactions to vaccines and they can take many forms that include physical and emotional ailments.

Information on Vaccinosis -

Remedies for Vaccinosis (and holistic vets that can consult): (my favorite)

We will be posting an article for you that is more in depth about rabies vaccinosis, how to recognize it and what to do. Though we are not veterinarians we have holistic vets and resources you can contact and of course as always this is for informational purposes only.

I hope this helps you take that extra step to ultimate wellness and health for your beloved Siberian Cat whether it's from Pendraig or not.

Blessings to you and yours,

Debut Golden Siberian Cat Litter at Pendraig - Due soon!

We are so excited to announce that Esenia Auric is due in a matter of days with Pendraig Siberian Cat's Debut Golden Siberian Cat litter. This goal has been a dream for so long it is hard to believe it is actually upon us but of course there is still the waiting, the worry that we feel for every mother that is bringing new life into this world and the uncertainty of what types of kittens we will have.

What we have come to expect from the sire of the litter, however, is strong, vibrant, robust kittens with loving personalities and beautiful type. Esenia Auric has these very qualities as well and it is a promising match. For those of you following our progress these years you will appreciate the investment of time, money, love and energy we have put into making the dream of a Golden Siberian Cat program at Pendraig a reality.

This color is truly unique and unlike anything I have ever seen in cats. Though I appreciate the many beautiful shades these cats come in, including the primal and original beauty of the brown (black) tabby cat the Golden and the red have special places in my heart.

Now we are nearly there and I feel like a child at Christmas!

Please keep our girl Esenia Auric in your thoughts and prayers, as well as her kicking and squirming kittens that await their entry into this world. For those few lucky families that will be getting one of these kittens for their very own we hope you will enjoy them as much as we will.

If you'd like to learn more about the Golden Siberian Cat please check out our page dedicated to the color. We hope to work with others to determine the genetics behind these cats and also to breed top quality cats, with robust health and excellent temperaments.

Pendraig’s First Siberian Kitten Litter --– 5 years young

Image of red Siberian kittens and tortie siberian kitten. It’s unbelievable but five years ago today we welcomed into the world the first Pendraig litter.  Born out of our foundation cat female that came straight from Russia we had a gorgeous litter of reds and torbies.  One of the two red females is Pendraig Red Sonja SunFire who became the foundation cat for our red line of Siberian cats.

Though we bought our first Siberian cat in 2003 and started making plans for our cattery in the summer of 2003 the true date I consider having “started” my cattery is the day this litter was born.  So Sonja’s birthday is also the anniversary of our cattery’s first litter and a very important day for us indeed.

Only one boy was born in the litter, an odd event for most breeders who seem overwhelmed with males we have always had predominantly females from the very start.  Pendraig Ivan SunFire is a beast of a cat, weighing easily over 18 lbs and filling up your arms when you pick him up for a cuddle.  He lives a life of love and luxury with my brother.Image  of red tabby Siberian cat Ivan.

He was always sweet and affectionate but a bit shy like his mother.  He would never make a show cat despite his handsome good looks, amazing coat and huge size but he is a most loved and adored cat by our family.

Sonja had the best type to my novice eye and she was already promising to have an outrageously good coat and the most beautiful green eyes but she was not the biggest boned of the kittens.  I had decided to pass on a kitten though I loved them all and breed Sonja’s mother again to keep a kitten for myself.  Sonja had other plans though.  image of rare orange tabby female Siberian kitten.

She latched onto me and would not be swayed from her choice in family.  She would follow me around like a puppy, chirp and call to me and always wanted my attention.  It was a good thing I decided to keep her because she is the most wonderful companion and an important part of our lives.  She has been a favorite pet of my son since he was just a few months old and she took great interest helping “babysit” him even as an infant.  When I was pregnant she would try and sleep for hours if I let her purring on top of my belly (and the baby inside).  She loved that I was pregnant and I know in her eyes my son is as much hers as he is mine.Sonja_20100224_001s

Happy Birthday Sonja and Ivan, and your litter mates.  You have brought much joy to our lives and in the case of Sonja you have brought further generation of wonderful Siberian cats into the hearts and homes of pet owners all over the country.

When people ask, “Is it true that the Siberian Cat breed is dog-like?” I have to laugh.  The reason is that the description is entirely accurate of most of the breed but especially of Sonja.  She follows me, and my son, around just as a dog would from room to room wanting to be a part of our every activity.  She greets us at the door when we come home finding a perch as high as possible so she will be at eye level.  She will chirrup a hello as soon as we make eye contact and start purring.  One is expected to put down whatever one is carrying in order to pet her and say a proper hello.  Sonja plays fetch and sometimes even brings the toy back.  She is very protective of people and our property and has been known to growl at strangers, or my husband when she doesn’t recognize him, climbing on a ladder outside the window.  Her growl is quite serious and you know she is not to be trifled with!  In one incident she was slapping the window hard and growling as loud as she could to deter this intruder from assaulting her home.  She didn’t realize the intruder was my husband.

Sonja can be territorial as any dog not wanting to share my lap with the new golden tabby we imported from Russia but eventually that has yielded to a grudging respect and I hope they will find friendship one day.

I can say that I fell in love with this breed reading about them and seeing photos, I loved them more when I greeted Sonja’s father at the airport and her mother as well.  But my true devotion started when I was staring into those green eyes of a little red tabby female I called “Pendraig Red Sonja SunFire”.  Happy Birthday my quirky, fiery, devoted and beautiful little friend.  I love you.

L Litter – Siberian kittens 3 weeks old

Siberian Kitten Photo Update

These little guys are advancing with leaps and bounds.  They do not want to be outdone by Dica’s kittens and don’t seem to care that they are almost 2 weeks older.  Already they are running amok in the nursery, playing and pouncing, investigating food bowls and learning to use a litter box.  They aren’t quite ready to eat solid food yet but it' will be any day now.

We are pleased to announce that all the kittens are reserved except one that is being held for a potential breeder and show cat.  We enjoy taking photos and videos yesterday as well and hope that you all enjoy watching them grow and thrive as much as we do.

These sweet and darling girl is still awaiting her new name.  She is currently on hold as a potential breeder and show prospect.

She is a lovely silver with her sire’s great muzzle and we hope his green eyes as well but only time will tell.

She is calm and sweet, loves to cuddle and we think will take well to the busy show halls.  We are setting her up with a new breeder protégé and we hope she gets to enjoy all her potential.

This little girl is going to a special family and as a surprise for one lucky little lady… best not to give too much away though!

She is sweet and affectionate and has an affinity for our small son.  She is also very gentle and patient with him so we know she will make a wonderful companion for a loving child.


This little girl has been named “Lada” after the Slavic goddess of beauty.  What a fitting name with her flame of red on her head and those gorgeous eyes.

She is going to a wonderful family that we have been pleased to get to know recently.  She is also great with our toddler and will make a wonderful companion for a family.

This little girl has been named Leia and it’s a fitting name for this little princess.  She has a warm almost honey brown coat coming in that looks so much like her sire, Karat.

She is sweet and intelligent, one of the first in her litter to explore the nursery, use the litter box and today she was investigating the food the older kittens were eating.

This is the single male in Lily’s litter.  He may be out numbered but he hold’s his own and he’s absolutely beautiful.

His name is Lazar Leonid, picked out by his future owner.  He looks like a silver version of his sire, Karat.  He’s sweet and affectionate with me and always says hello as soon as he sees me.  He’s definitely a ladies man.

We hope you have enjoyed the photos of our Siberian kittens at 3 weeks.  All are reserved or being held for their owners.  We are planning our Siberian kitten litters for Spring and Summer 2010 but we are close to closing those waiting lists.  If you are interested please fill out an application for a Siberian Kitten today.

It’s nearly official… all kittens reserved

It’s been a busy month for us taking care of all these amazing kittens, updating new potential owners and responding to tons and tons of applications.  Our waiting list is growing and we are so happy to welcome so many wonderful and devoted pet lovers to our future cat family.

As for the litters we have now they are all on hold, all but one is official!  We are just waiting on one last deposit to be received.

Thank you to everyone who has picked out a kitten.  Many of you had a good long wait and we appreciate your patience.  Good things come to those who wait, right?

Those of you who missed out on this litter if you are on our waiting list we have some exciting plans for spring and summer.  If you aren’t on our Siberian kitten waiting list, what are you waiting for?

Winter 2010 we may breed Dica again but it will be a lighter holiday season for us.  We do have some exciting plans to expand our cattery and new breeders we are working with.  There are many good things to come.

We are so flattered and honored to have the interest of so many wonderful people.  Thank you to each and every one of you.  Without you this cattery could not exist.  We breed in hopes of producing top quality cats and insuring a bright future for this wonderful breed but if we didn’t have dedicated and loving pet owners we could never succeed.  I know the Siberian Cat Breed thanks you as well.
