ABIGAIL's Big Surprise

 Good Morning to everybody.  Unionville is pretty warm today.  I hope you all have nice cool spots to quarantine today and stay safe.

ABIGAIL has given me a HUGE, sweet surprise.  7 kittens. All doing wonderfully and healthy.  And SO cute. There are 5 boys and 2 girls.

Here is a good picture of the Blue Tabby with white, the Black Tabby with white, The Blue With White, and there are two Colorpoints in there, but they have better pictures than in this one.

Here is just a picture of 6 of them all curled up.

Mama being proud yet protective.  They all look so tiny.  They were born August 9th.

A better picture of two of the Colorpoints.  This is one girl the creamy colored one nursing, and a boy laying on his back near the Black and White boy.

Here is the Blue w/ White Tabby boy, and the two Colorpoint boys both have white bands across their shoulders, sooo cute, the two girls are the two in the middle. the Blue /white boy and I am so excited to have a pure Black kitten with white on all 4 paws and a streak of white above his nose, he has white on his neck and chest as well.  I so rarely get Black kittens, I get happy, happy, happy. (smile).

     PLEASE understand, I have about 75 on my Waiting List and I MUST go through the list in order to be fair to all.  Many times ones cannot get a kitten at the time I call and inform them of the litters' birth, so sometimes we can get through a lot of the list because I just call the next person if there is a refusal. I will let you know by e-mail or by phone, however I can reach you the quickest.

   Thank you everybody and enjoy the pictures, and I will try to get more as they get a little older.

Have a great day from CHERISHED SIBERIANS in Unionville, Va.540-445-0630.

DREAMER'S Babies Ready to Fly the Coop

The day is fast approaching when I will have no more babies here at Cherished Siberians.  These babies go to the Vet on Tuesday and get their health checked out before they head home with their new Moms and Dads.  Their take home date is the 18th.  So these guys are getting big now.  I always miss the babies and their playtimes.  But I also relish the peace and quiet and a little more time to tend the garden and the yard and other matters at hand.  That many babies takes up a lot of time through the days.

 Our Bluepoint Girl with White.  She is bold and funny.

 Peek a boo

 Our little boy, Bluepoint with White.   What adorable markings on his face and nose.

 4 out of 5 babies agree, it's fun playing in this corner.  Actually I was cleaning and put a lot of toys into the birthing box while I vacuumed and changed out the water bowl and filled the food dishes.  
And they were so curious  they just climbed in and on everything.

 Bluepoint boy with white.  He is very slightly larger than all the others.  But they are all so close in size its really just an ounce or two that distinguishes them.  We'll get them all weighed on Tuesday at the Vet.

Big chair for such a little girl.  Bluepoint girl.  With the dark legs.

Playing with a ball in roller toy.  Its one of their favorites to play together.  Kinda like Kitty-catch.

There were so many more pictures but they arent showing up off my phone yet.  Maybe tomorrow.
But  I wanted to get some pictures out anyway.  They are so cute.  And quick, I had to delete 3 times as many pictures for blurred movements and backs of heads shots.  Kittens do not sit still for good shots. (smile).

     I do not have any available kittens at this time.  I am projecting a take home date of possibly Nov./Dec. when one of the girls gets pregnant again.
    Oh yes, in other news HOKO had gotten a bad infection and I ended up getting her spayed.  It was in her best interest.  And she already has a loving home waiting for her once her new family comes back from vacation.  She is doing great and is more mellow now and being more socially interactive. So spaying can change cats in good ways.  She is more loving.  Hard to imagine.

    So that's the news here at Cherished Siberians in Unionville, Va.
Thank you for taking the time to check out the blog.

Families please remember a carrier for the ride home, for the safety of your kitten, it is the equivalent of a car seat for a new baby.  Holding baby on the way home is not a good idea.  If they hide under your seats it may be very hard to find them once you get home.
    Also remember all balances must be in cash when you come to pick up your kittens.  I need 5 days prior to pick up to use PayPal and 14 days prior to pick up for a check to clear.  At this point cash is the only option as there are only a few days left before the take home date.

Thank you and have a fabulous day.

 FINALLY, FINALLY,  I got a mess of good pictures of DREAMER's kittens.  As you can see, they still hang out under the chair where she put them, but now they venture out to eat the wet food I take out there every day and the last few days they even play with me with the feather wand after they have finished eating.  So..... progress, slow but sure.   Dreamer will actually let me pick them up and go under a chair while I feed and play with them.  She is still young herself, so sometimes she just can't help herself, she runs and chases the feather wand too.

Above is my cafeteria tray with 5 compartments and they feed very well from it.

Hello hungry babies.  They all SEEM to look alike, but I can finally tell them apart.  Although if the darkest blue girl and the darkest blue boy were the same sex  I would NEVER tell them apart.

We are enjoying our wet food snacks.  Thank you.

Darkest blue boy.  Belongs to {and I will only use initials here} S.Z.

This girl with the coloring over her nose and face belongs to C.B.

This is NOT a great picture of the darkest Bluepoint boy, but it is him, I can see the two dark feet.  It is too washed out of a picture.  You'll see in pictures below, what I am talking about.  He is dark. He is the same kitten above. hard to believe.... I know. Not my best picture.

This fellow has a half blue and half white nose.  He is stunning.  He belongs to J.D.

This is our darkest Blurpoint girl.  A perfect twin to the boy above.  She belongs to P. F.

This is our Blue Lynx Point boy with white paws.   He belongs to R H.

Yep, still hiding under the chair.

Yum, I love my wet food,  don't want to miss a drop on my mouth.

Me either,  I am washing every drop off of my fur too.  Yummy.

Mom is finishing our food plate after we left it.  Hmm, maybe I should have eaten more.

Yeah, me too, well it looks like we're too late now.

Really, Mom?!

Hi, we are just hanging out now, we know you're going to play with us next. Bring on  the feather.

White paws, Blue Lynx Point boy and darkest Bluepoint girl.

Can you believer her, right now???  She had her own, you know!!

Venturing out.Let's play feather wand!!!!!

                                                     Pretty kitty

 Mom n me.... best buds.

Let the games begin.  I love playing too.

No, no, I'm too big to take pictures on the little couch now.

Did someone say "cuddle" ?

Hey,  did I hear the bell on the feather wand?

I got it.  Let's play.

You can't tell, but I am dragging the feather stick over the floor and they are running after it. Well, some of them.

Whoa, you bowled me over.

I am fascinated.  I could look at that thing for hours.

Running across my legs on the floor.

Well. I hope you have enjoyed your first romp with these 5 elusive babies. Maybe we can get back to normal with these guys as DREAMER settles into motherhood and relaxes her protective instincts.
   I hope you enjoyed "meeting" your new babies too.  Sorry Co-Vid prohibits visits to see them.  But they will be coming home in the next few weeks .  Their take home date is June 18th.
   Have a lovely day.
Stay safe.
Stay cool,
