Hypoallergenic Siberian Cats and Siberian Kittens for Sale and Adoption in Grand Rapids, MI
HOW WE GOT STARTED:
When we finally decided to adopt a kitten, we spent many hours researching the perfect cat. We were looking for intelligence, loyalty and a loving disposition. We finally decided on a Siberian and adopted our first kitten, Alexi. We fell instantly in love with him. It was only when a family member who has a severe allergy to cats was visiting that we discovered our kitten was hypoallergenic. It did not take us very long to decide that we needed a friend for Alexi and for our allergic family member to decide to adopt one for herself. A little later, we started discussing the possibility of breeding these beautiful cats for others to enjoy. To this day, we have never regretted our decision to breed and raise Siberian kittens in our home. Our kittens are hand raised in a loving environment and are well socialized with people (both adults and small children), other cats and dogs. By the time they are old enough to leave our home, they are well adjusted and accustomed to being treated as one of the family.
