Katerina was bought as a kitten from a breeder and lived with her family for 8 years. In her family were three children, the oldest was six years old. She is a very gentle sweet kitty. Her problem was that her family did not want her near their children or them at night. They would lock her out of their bedrooms and she would cry. That upset the children and that upset their parents. They put her in a crate every night and put the crate as far away as possible from them, in the laundry room by the garage. They tried other things to make her quiet but she would cry in her longing and loneliness. A Siberian cat breeder on the web mentions that this breed “doesn’t enjoy being left alone for long periods of time”. So her night time troubles were typical Siberian behavior. Except in this case her family was in the home she was just locked away from them.
When she arrived into foster she was depressed and quiet. She hid. How could she understand what had happened to her? Where were her children? They must have missed her too; she is a great family cat. A family with a six and ten year old came to visit. When they came near her Katerina came out of her hiding spot and immediately ran to the door to see them. “Look at that!” her foster mom said. “She really loves children!” So we are looking for a home for her with children or grandchildren. Once Katerina settled in with us we have seen that she is goodnatured, affectionate and also quiet. We think her calling out at night was something that happened because of the circumstances of her last home. Kat needs a home where she would be welcomed into bedrooms night. How great to have her company.
This beautiful girl is a purebred green eyed Siberian Forest Cat. Her heritage takes her to Russia where her plush triple coat is like the ones that kept her relatives warm through the long Siberian winters.The web describes this breed as being very loyal and very affectionate. Super smart, they are often easily harness trained and taught tricks .They love going up high and would appreciate climbing trees and high shelves. A catio with branches to climb would be great for her. Siberians are generally friendly towards other pets and also toward strangers. Some people find them hypoallergenic. Their coat needs a weekly brushing which Katerina seems to enjoy.
Some family will be so lucky to have the company of this beautiful and unusual kitty.
