Life With Sly

Prospective pet parents wishing to get a kitten from Semper Fi Siberians usually have many questions. And we have questions for them. This querying back and forth allows them to be confident in us as breeders and us to be confident they can provide the perfect home for one of our precious bundles of fur.

In the weeks leading up to adoption day we cover many subjects: what to purchase, what and how to feed, safety for your new “baby,” transition to your home, bonding.  Then on adoption day the education continues: clipping claws, prevention of scratching, getting your kitten to the vet, more safety training, etc.


Teamwork, the best way to clip claws.

So with all that, most think they are fully prepared for the delights in store for them when their new kitten arrives. Not always the case!  One of our pet parents told me, I know you told me several times about the personality of the Siberian but I guess it is a little like child birth, you don’t really know until it happens to you! But unlike child birth, there is no pain involved! But like childbirth, there is much joy ahead!

The majority of our new pet parents are very good about sending us a photo now and then and keeping us updated on the progress of their kitten, for which we are very grateful. But one family has thrilled us with many, many photos of their precious bundle of joy and his busy life.

Enjoy as we peek in on life with Sly! (Click on individual photos to read captions.)
