Wait List/Optimist List

Our wait list has become full, very full! We are now projecting November/December adoption dates. Therefore, we feel it is necessary to temporarily stop accepting additions to our list.

If I have talked with you in the last couple of weeks but we have not as yet received your deposit, I will still add you to our wait list. Please call me within the next week to make this happen. (217-823-5482) After April 1, we will not be adding anyone to the wait list unless they are looking into the future and wanting a kitten sometime during 2016 (yes, there are people who do plan that far ahead). As of April 1, our wait list deposit will be $100; this will still be deducted from the total price of the kitten.

After April 1, we will have a different list. I think I will call it our “Optimist List.” We will take your name, phone number and email address and contact you when the wait list opens up once again. After the spring litters are all born and reserved, we will take a look at our projections and see what adoption dates are realistic. If you are not already on our wait list, we encourage you to contact other breeders. Several good sources for a list of breeders are kittysites.com, tica.org, and taigasiberianclub.com.

Here are some recently received photos from our current pet parents. They had to wait also but their patience paid off and they are now enjoying their beautiful, loving and sometimes mischievous Siberians.

        Can hardly wait! We leave for our cruise Friday. I hopefully will still be able to check texts and emails once a day, though, so feel free to share any good news! 🙂

    Yes it was! We waited 4 months for Izzy and about the same for Zoey. I couldn’t imagine our family without either one and as you can see from my picture they are the best of friends/sisters! And my daughter who has a cat allergy doesn’t have any issue with either one. Money well spent, a wait worth waiting for!

  3. We certainly did not want to do this, but our wait list has grown so much in the last month, that we simply had to do something. Hang in there folks. Although a Marine, Mother Nature won’t listen to me! LOL. Semper Fi, Jim

    I agree with Amy. I can’t afford one one on my tight budget, so I go to the local Humane society and adopt. Haven;’t had of any cats unhappy to leave there except for the resident cat was returned several times for moping and total loss of appetite. He was named honorary boss and official greeter Yeah for Taz! He has 13 years seniority
    . They are good to the animals; adult cats get they run of rhe place once they realize how good ihey’ve got it and also greet any visitors with purrs and head rubs.
    Dogs get an hour or two of outdoor kennel time (frisbee and ball toss) while indoor kennels are disinfected and dried.I think the neighbor kids do the afternoon/evening play after school and homework in the evenings with Mom and Dads supervision. Animals got it good. Plenty of volunteers; me with cats and kittens at least once A MONTH more now that the roads are clear. I have hard time with the parking lot then or other wise.
    So I adopt. Yeah there’s a fee There is a smali fee but far cheaper than the vet charges just for spay/neuter These babes are tested for Feluc. vacinated – all vacinnees up to date on rabies for 3 years tested and treated for worms. fleas ect. If you want a mutt cat or dog Williams Co Humane Soc.n OH is a good place to go. clean enough to to lay on the floor in the kitten room in white pants, I do! A totatlly unsoliicted recommendation from me but two babies here said I*’d better do tt or they’ll ignore me. We all know how they can be.

    • Thank you Barbara. We, too, believe in adopting pets from your local shelter. In fact, we have two dogs and one cat, Zoe, who are adopted from shelters. So why then do we raise Siberians? Because it gives us more pleasure than you can imagine to put a kitten in the arms of someone who cannot otherwise have a cat because of allergies. The largest percentage of our pet parents have someone in their immediate or extended family or friends who are allergic to cats. We commend you for your work with Williams County humane society and encourage others to help local shelters either with their time or financial contributions. Unfortunately we don’t have the time but we do make a monthly contribution to our shelter in Springfield.

  6. We hope to make it in the spring batch too, but we’ll wait as long as we have to! We have kitty countdown every time a new litter is born. They are so cute!
