Gracie's Siberian Kittens at 18 days

I have stairstep litters.  Each of my three girls gave birth one Monday after another. Gracie, the first of the three, has a brood that is just growing and growing.  He kittens are now two weeks and three days old.  The time has just flown by, and it never ceases to amaze me how fast they grow.

Here are some sweet little pictures I took of Gracie and her kittens:

This is the color point female:

She is already spoken for.  It looks like she will grow into her pretty grey face and white body.

Here is the color point male:

Here's our biggest kitten, the flame point male:

And our polar opposite, the smallest of the litter, a red male:

Kitten Review

Hello,  Cherished Siberians is gearing into normalcy.  I have 3 kittens left here.  Tigger is going to Boston, Mass. on Wednesday.  And "Delilah" is the new name of the kitten going home on Aug 1. And I am keeping Hoko for my new breeder, so she will grow up with me.

Remember all 4 of Akimi's kittens?  They have loving homes now.  The little color point is now "Delilah" who will go home soon.

And Maliha's 3.  They were almost the first to go to new homes.  They are well loved. They were when they were here too.  I still miss the gray girl whose new name is "Penny".  (smile)

And here's an early one of Gracie's 5.  She had the biggest litter.  She is such a great mommy.  Gracie has the most beautiful jade green eyes.
And this was Hoko in April, she is the one I am keeping, one of Gracie's kittens.  She will be my new breeder when she gets old enough.  She will be a good mommy like her mother before her.  

So now, the house is quieter, a lot cleaner and getting back to normal. (smile)  And I miss the play and the pitter patter and hissing and mewing from all the babies, but I should be doing it all over again around December or early January when new babies will be available.  Akimi will be having her last litter with me and then she will be someones pampered pet after I retire her.  She deserves a wonderful home with some parents who will spoil her rotten. (she already is ).

So with this little review I will close for today.  From Culpeper, Va. and Cherished Siberians, Have a great day and see you next blog.

ONLY one kitten left.

Here's the updated news from the "Kitten Front" at  Cherished Siberians , Cedric has found a new home and will be leaving me Thursday.  And tomorrow another kitten may be leaving me as well.  Tigger is flying to Boston, Mass. (hopefully) on Monday  and I will have Akimi's little black girl "Ami" left at home with Gracie's little blue point girl "Hoko" who I am keeping for my next breeder girl.  But Ami is sweet and loving and purrs at the drop of a pin, and loves to play and is very very cute and cuddly.
   Also, my mentor Kim Capes' site Blue Ridge Siberians is down for some reason right now, and until she gets it up and running again you can contact her through me for the next few days.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  Kim has one kitten left available also.  She is a seal lynx point, female.
Arrangements can be made through me to see her kitten and/or test your allergies with her.  I don't have a picture of her right now, but I'll see if she has one for me soon.
  Well, from Culpeper, Va. and Cherished Siberians, so long for now, and ......... goodnight.

It's been an absolute scorcher here in Culpeper.  Probably in all of Virginia.  Very hot and humid. 

But inside, the kittens and I are keeping cool, hydrated, and having fun.

We took some new pictures.  So here are the two kittens that are still available.

Cedric, the Blue Mackeral Male:

He has become a real joy.  He's very even tempered.  He's playful, but he is also a cuddler.  He's content to let you pick him up and just hold him and hug him - then like any kitten, he'll leap away and play. He is really a delight, and I think will grow into a wonderful family cat.

Ami, the Black Female

Ami is a difficult kitten to photograph.  Her pictures just don't do this stunning kitten justice.  Ami is fleshing out into a delicate, graceful cat.  She's a playful, wily one.  She like to play "hide and seek" cat style, running from you, then pausing to see if you come find her, and purring when you "catch" her and pick her up.  She is simply a lovely kitten with a well rounded personality.

If you would like to make either one of these kittens part of your family, please contact me.

Hope your day has been a good one.

Wow, this month is just going by TOO fast.  I can't believe it's been so long since I've written on the blog.  AND I have new pictures to share of the kittens, but I have to wait until tomorrow for my daughter to teach me how to get them from my e-mail onto my blog.  I'm learning.

OK,  Tigger our red tabby male, is getting a new home in Boston , Mass.  and "Pete" went home with a new mommy, and our black male "Davonta" is in his new loving home too.  So that means I have the black girl "Ami" still available and the blue (grey) male "Cedric" available and .... that's it.  They are so cuddly and cute and love to play.  Cedric used to be so aloof, but is now blossoming into a warm, friendly , outgoing kitten who climbs up behind my head on the chair and puts his paw on my shoulder to be petted.  And Amy is going to love to be someone's lap cat.  She adores being paid attention to.   Also Kim of Blue Ridge Siberians has a blue point girl who is available, and she is BEAUTIFUL.

I believe Akimi can be mated next month. So there will be a 9 week gestation period and then 10 weeks before kittens are ready to go home.  I'll keep you posted on if she is really ready , or if I think she needs to rest a little more.  But she's already been in heat and seems ready now, but I won't let her go too early.

In the meantime, would someone please turn the heater off outside?  It is soooo hot in Culpeper, Va. right now, and no end in sight to the heatwave.So from Cherished Siberians  I am saying so long until tomorrow, when I hope to have all the new pictures up for you.

Saying goodbye is such sweet sorrow.....

Ok, where have I been?  Cherished Siberians has been very busy (trying) to keep things clean with 11 kittens and 4 adults in the house.  And getting their shots and health matters current. And I took 11 kittens to the vet for their wellness check , all at the same time.  That was fun.  The Drs. and Nurses were cooing and loving all the little kittens.  Everyone checked out very healthy and happy. All their paperwork is in order for them to be taken home.

And my blue point boy Iitchi (eetchee) went home with his new family today.  He is such a darling little boy, I know they are going to love love love him.  And tomorrow my blue lynx point little girl is going to get a new family.  And Saturday the little red tabby Pete (I call him Henry) is going to have his new home too.   So my babies are flying out of here.  All three of Maliha's kittens are sold, but they are young yet and have a few more weeks before they can fly the coop.

So  Tigger is still available.  He is so adorable.

And Akimi's litter.  The black boy and the black girl and the blue mackeral  male are 
still available.
Ami, Davonta and Cecil

ok, from Culpepr, Va,flooding and rainy, I sign off for tonight and am going to
get some much needed sleep.
