Pendraig Siberians is happy to welcome our new boy from Norway. He is a lovely red classic tabby out of lines we’ve long wanted to have as we build our traditional cattery up. His name is (N)Nordskjæret Eamonn. He is everything that we hoped for in a new stud. A robust but balanced build, promising type, a lovely and strong head that will help us bring strong heads to our lines in the future. He is a red classic which is our favorite color and pattern besides goldens. he is also a darling boy that loves attention and is intelligent and fun.
It was a long trip for him from Norway but he traveled it well and arrived clean and neat too! What a good boy he is and it’s amazing for a kitten too. He is our fourth Siberian kitten imported from Europe and our second from Norway. We are grateful and truly blessed to have him join our family.
Eamonn will help us towards our goals and we plan for him to have a long reign as a king at Pendraig Siberians. It has been a few years since we had a red stud and now we are lucky enough to have two, Eamonn and our up and coming boy Pendraig Quantocius. We started our cattery in 2003 with our first Siberian cat a red mackerel tabby and it is a wonderful feeling to get back to those roots.
There is so much we can say about this wonderful Siberian kitten but the most important thing is that we love him!! Thank you so much, Synnove of (N)Nordskjæret cattery for these amazing little guy and the beautiful photos too. We have started a photo album on our Siberian Cat Fanpage on Facebook.
It is with great joy that we announce our plans to bring over a new import from Russia. This girl is from Fialka cattery, a top cattery producing amazing traditional Siberian cats. We have long admired Fialka’s cats and it is a dream become reality that we are finally bringing home a Fialka Siberian Cat of our very own.
Turandot is very special not just because she is from Fialka lines on her sire’s side but because she offers the US a new foundation line through her dam. Cats not seen in our gene pool will be adding to the diversity of our breed and will be a great asset to our Golden Siberian Cat program.
Her sire is G Int. CH Amour-Timange Fialka. He is titled in both WCF and FIFe. He represents the glory that is the Siberian Cat in it’s traditional form, large, big boned, and well muscled he looks like a wild cat on the prowl.
His beautiful head and coat can set any heart a flutter. It is little wonder he has been so successful. He also comes from two EC (European Champions) for parents, EC Jonathan-Timange Fialka and EC Veilchen Prinzessin.
Her dam Manchzhury Gertsoginya of Fialka is out of foundation lines bringing lines from as far away as Vladivostok in the far East (a Pacific Port) with lines from east of Moscow. She represents the aboriginal Siberian cat and provides a unique chance for diversity in our cattery, through her daughter, not found in many others.
Turandot represents the best of the marriage between champion show line cats and foundation cats. We can only believe she will bring the best of both to our cattery.

After a long flight for FeLine that spanned two days and half the globe we are overjoyed to welcome this beautiful and sweet Siberian Kitten into our home, our family and our cattery. She is everything we hoped for with beauty, grace, wonderful coat texture and promising type. She is so beautiful and sweet, sitting patiently in our toddler’s often overeager arms and building a new bond that I know will be something he remembers fondly one day.
We cannot thank Kristin Bolme of Siberikos Siberian Cats enough for this wonderful, amazing and loving cat. She is not only an important part of our family and our hearts now but a crucial part of the future of our cattery as we continue to embrace and celebrate the traditional type Siberian Cat.
It is our hope to show her here in the USA and help gain more exposure for traditional type Siberian cats in the CFA and TICA show halls. Her darling personality is an extra bonus for us that can only be the result of fantastic care by a loving breeder who puts everything she has into raising wonderful cats. Thank you, Kristin. We love her with all of our hearts. Gabriel is especially happy as you can see here in these photos we took today.
Feline’s flight was blessedly uneventful, as far as we know, and her flight arrived on time to Houston. We had an easy time getting her final paperwork finished and going to the U.S. Customs office to get their approval. After all of that was done we were able to pick her up. All in all it took about an hour but we had to travel from here to Houston (3.5 hr drive) and she had to sit in her crate for that as well but she was so sweet and patient. I am sure she was happy to get a rest in her new room that night and after a quick snuggle by me and my son we let her have her blanket and toys her breeder sent with her. She ate most of her food and settled right in. I am always amazed at how well cats take such long travel. I know if it was me I’d be a little worse for wear. =)
If you are ever considering importing a cat from another country be sure to look up the laws and regulations so that it goes smoothly. Some countries have special requirements. When we send Pendraig Nimue Emrys of Siberikos to Norway soon she will have her own journey to undertake but we know she will have the best home, and most loving care with Kristin.
Thank you, FeLine for coming to live with us and all you endured to get here. We love you! =)
