Pictures of Past Kittens that their Moms and Dads have Shared With Me

Not too many words in this blog, just pictures sent to me of my past kittens, growing and grown in their forever homes.

I threw in  two beautiful pictures of Garreth from when we still lived in Culpeper.  He is the best.

So this ends this entry of Kittens Gone Home.  I hope you enjoyed their pictures as much as I do when you send them to me.  So much fun to catch up with my old buddies. (smile)

Kittens hopefully available in March!!!!

Toby needs a Home

Hello to everybody who has a big heart and ability to take care of a special needs cat.
Seems like Toby has developed Diabetes.  He is fine, he just needs two injections of Vetsulin a day. It is not expensive and lasts for 3-4 months of treatments.
     Anybody who has been to my house has more than likely been introduced to Toby.  My first breeder boy from back when I first began.  He has been neutered and is just my pet now.  But I feel like he needs more love and attention than I am able to give at this point and I want him to have a loving , caring, wonderful home.  And I am willing to give him to someone who can fit that bill for him.  Toby is loving, outgoing, wants to be in your lap, follows you  from room to room and greets you at the door. He is gentle and sweet.  And I feel bad that I don't have all the time in the world, which he deserves.
   Please contact me if you would have extra love to give to my precious Toby.  Please contact Doreene Richmond at 540-445-0630.

Move Successful

     Hello everybody!!!
    Well, we are completely moved out of Culpeper now.  The Kitty Cabins are all set up on the new property, and everybody seems to be settling in really well.  All the girls seem to like their new "digs".  And I make sure that I spend time with each one daily.  I still want them to be socialized and friendly and just who they have always been.
     Garreth has his own Kitty Cabin, of course, the same one he has had since he came to the U.S.  And he seems to really love it.  He does miss his "catio" which let him go outside, but there are still things I am working on.  We certainly aren't fully moved in or settled yet.    
     There is good kitten news on the horizon. ABIGAIL seems to be pregnant and she should deliver about March 11th.  And HONEY seems to be pregnant, and if so, she will deliver somewhere about March 25th.
     The other two I am waiting for a few more weeks to say for sure if their "date" with Garreth went well.
     For those expecting their paperwork after sending proof of spay or neuter, thank you so much for your patience and thoughtfulness during the stressful time of moving.  I DO know where my files are, but getting to everything day by day is still not back to normal yet. I am either working on getting paperwork TO  TICA for them to send my litter registrations to me, or I have the paperwork and need to get them into mailing status for you.  Please be assured, I have not forgotten you.
     A huge problem with the move at present is that Verizon seems to have pulled their services out of our neighborhood for some reason.  Only those who had it were "grandfathered" in, which leaves us in the lurch.  IF Verizon does not resume service in the month of March we will be looking into alternative methods of reconnecting ourselves to the internet system.  I am at Starbucks right now, which is hugely inconvenient for blogging or doing other Siberian necessary work I could usually do even if I woke up in the middle of the night. (smile)  So, again, thank you for bearing with us!





It comes to my attention, I need an updated, good picture of ABIGAIL.  I will have to take some new ones soon.

      I have a new telephone number for Cherished Siberians as well, as they would not let me keep the old number since we are in a totally different area.  The address has changed on the WEBSITE, but my daughter has yet to change the phone number for me.  Getting together with two totally different schedules is problematic enough without having to go out to a place that has internet accessibility for me too.   Anyway, please call 540-445-0630 for Cherished Siberians.

     Have a lovely day to you from Cherished Siberians in Unionville, Va.!!!!

I am having an estate sale on Saturday January 18th. from 7:30 a.m. til 3:00 p.m. at the 510 Fairfax St. Culpeper, Va. location.  So if you saw any of the antiques or other furniture in the house that you particularly admired, you may certainly let me know. here are just a few hightlights.

 Accent table with glass top,  wooden inset shelf between scroll crafted iron legs

 Roses tea pot, sugar bowl, cream pitcher and cups and saucers

 Two antique Windsor arm chairs,  One kidney shaped antique liquor cabinet with serving tray top.

 Fireplace screen, wooden, painteed

 Antique Amoire  with double, bevelled mirror doors, two drawers on bottom  ( where the kittens used to climb inside and hide)

 Old Japanese wine urn  ( don't know much about it, except it is a beautiful cobalt blue on white background)

 3 pc. curio shelf unit. Two stationary tall shelves one shorter unit on wheels. Glass shelves.

 Wrought iron 3 tiered shelf with round glass insets. Small round shelf on top graduating to large glass shelf on bottom. Can be used for plants, storage, stacking towels and washclothes, etc

   Set of 4 upholstered arm chairs. Heavy.  Good for office or Dining Room.

 Large floral arrangement on metal pedestal stand

Med/Large sized artwork.   Mountain picture by Southern artist Laura Malpass, Original Oil painting.  She died in 1996. 

Welcome all back to the Fairfax St. Culpeper, Va address to see the whole Estate Sale. And soon we will be in our new location in Unionville, Va.

Have a wonderful day today


GOOD MORNING.    Shocking, but GOOD news.  I have sold the house in Culpeper, and am relocating slightly South off  Rt. 522 in Unionville.  We have found a route that is only 20 minutes from the location in Culpeper.  So the distance impact will  not be too much on anybody.  And may be slightly closer to the North Carolina clients. 
     This move will be so good for the cats too. I was so limited with what I could do living in town.  And this property will let me give the cats SO much more.  Even a way for them to have a little "catio" outside so they can enjoy the sunshine as well.
     The new address is 23292 Hawfield Rd. Unionville, Va 22567
For now, the phone number is the same, I will have to see if that needs to change, as we haven't transitioned to the new house yet.  As of February we should be moving in and trying to get settled.
     So, no surprise, I will not be able to do allergy visitations for a while.  When the next set of kittens are born and old enough, I will resume visits. No one is pregnant at present.which is probably best,  as stress, such as caused by a move, could potentially cause them to lose a pregnancy.
So, for that reason, I am glad no one is expecting a litter at this time.
     I am hoping everybody will be happy for me and for the cats and kittens at Cherished Siberians. I hope to keep giving you the quality in pets, and even better now, that you have come to expect.
     For now, have a fabulous day and enjoy the sunshine and warm weather on Saturday, it is supposed to be 70. Wow, in January, that is crazy, but I will be enjoying that day for sure.
          THANK YOU ALL for the support and love of my kittens and the beautiful pictures and updates you send.  I love seeing my old buddies again.  And seeing how you love and spoil them. (smile)

Pictures of DREAMER'S Litter Going Home soon

     These kittens are all spoken for, but updated pictures for their families are always nice to see.

This little boy, I call Munchkin.  Look at hose cute jowls.

This little boy I like to call Poufy, I always felt that way when I put him up to my cheek.  He just feels Poufy (smile}

This wonderful boy I call Tipper.  If youy look at his paws you can see why.  Only the very tips of his paws have white on them.

This little girl is Jules.  She has Dreamer and Hoko in the background with her.

And this dark pawed little girl is Uniqua.  And she definitely is unique.

Dreamer had 3 boys and 2 girls in this litter.  And they are all adorable and can steal your heart away. (smile)

Remember none of these are available, they are all adopted.

Enjoy the photos from Cherished Siberians in Culpeper, Va.

Allergy Visitation Day for December

     I am trying to arrange a day for allergy visits, but honestly, with the worldly holiday upcoming, I am finding it hard to accommodate a weekend.  So, I think it best to have a mid-week visitation, allergy testing day.  So I have come down to DECEMBER 17,2019  from 1-5 p.m.  And I am sorry for any inconvenience.   If you would like to test your allergies or visit on this day, please make an appointment time by calling 540-727-8950, you may have to leave a message and I'll call you back. but we'll get you here on that day.  Please don't call and ask for a personal one - on - one visitation day, this is truly all I can do with people's busy schedules for this month.


     JANUARY 11, 2020  is the tentative date for allergy visits as far as I can see right now.               From 1-5 p.m.

I hope this finds everyone well and feeling fine.

HAVE A FABULOUS DAY  from Cherished Siberians in Culpeper, Va
