This is Papaver Dulce, meaning 'Sweet Poppy', our foundation Siberian Queen.

Poppy is an incredibly sweet natured girl; loving and gentle she likes getting stokes and cuddles and often sleeps on my pillow. However she can be quite quiet and shy around strangers. She loves being outside in the run where she can watch the birds and help with the gardening (digging holes in the flowerbed is helpful isn't it?!). Since we moved house Poppy has established her new favourite place to sleep is on top of the sky box, which we think must be nice and warm, she also likes sitting in the sunshine on the windowsill getting lots of admiring comments from passers by.

In her first year Poppy did very well on the show bench. She received some brilliant comments from the judges (all of whom mention how lovely her temperament is)! We gave her a break from showing while she was nursing and recovering between litters but we hope to take her out again in the future sometime.

Poppy had her first litter of kittens in summer 2010 and proved herself to be a very caring and capable mother. Being a beautiful blue-cream tortie tabby (carrying the solid gene) means we can expect a wide variety of colours in her future litters (including browns, blues, creams, reds, torties and silvers, all solid or tabby and with or without white) which makes waiting for the babies very exciting.

Poppy came to us from the Miakira cattery - she is a truly international girl with both Russian and German lines in her pedigree. Thank you Tracey for entrusting us with such a special girl.

Holly

Alchemist HollyBerry Holly has a deep red coat with ghost tabby marking On the windowsill with daughter Sierra at 6 weeks Surveying her domain from the top of the dresser Holly nursing her litter of nine newborn kittens Looking very pretty at 5 months old Sitting pretty at 14 weeks Regrowing a new coat at 6 weeks On the road to recovery after her illness At 9 days old Sire: Viktor Adam of Lestvitsa Dam: Miakira Papaver Dulce (Poppy)

Holly was born in May 2011 and was from Poppy's second litter. She is a Red Solid which is pretty rare, particularly in a female.

We didn't oringinally intend to keep Holly but after nursing her back to health following an illness and bottle feeding her for two weeks until she was ready to eat solid food we found it just too hard to part with her to anyone else.

Like most Siberian's Holly is full of mischief and energy - she often comes to find us dragging her favourite toy (a bow on a piece of string) behind her and chirrups to tell us she's ready for playtime! She is also a very loving young lady who purrs loudly and is particularly fond of tummy rubs.

In 2012 Holly surprised us by producing no less than 9 kittens in a single litter! With such a lot of babies to care for we were worried she would struggle but she is an extremely good mum and took amazing care of her brood. I think she learnt her lesson though as she produced a much more manageable 6 kittens in her second litter!

Carrying two copies of the red gene means that Holly will pass the red onto all of her babies which will give us lots of ginger boys and tortoisehell girls in her litters. Depending on the stud we chose she could also give us creams and blue creams and all of these could be tabby or solid and with or without white!

Jack

Alchemist JackOfHearts

Alchemist JackOfHearts

Alchemist JackOfHearts Outside in the spring sunshine It's a hard life... Can I come up for a cuddle please? Jack gives Echo a bath! At the Eastern Counties Show in 2012 Getting bigger at 8 months old Playing in the waste paper bin Stalking through the grass Just learning to walk at 4 weeks old Sire: Moskvasibcat Basilii K.Adranovich Dam: Miakira Papaver Dulce (Poppy)

Bred in 2010 Alchemist Jack of Hearts was one of four kittens from Poppy's first litter and, being a fellow ginger, he quickly wormed his way into Martin's heart.

He's not the brightest cat ever but what Jack lacks in brains he makes up for in beauty. He is a gorgeous Red Tabby with White with a very stiking look and we hope when we show him he will become a Champion cat.

I have never met another cat as affectionate as Jack, he just loves to come and sit on my lap when I'm watching TV and as soon as we start to stir in the morning he pads up the bed and settles himself on Martins chest or on my pillow purring loudly!

Jack is a proud uncle and always involves himself with each litter of kittens. He loves to play with them when they get bigger but most of all he likes to cuddle up on the sofa with them and give them all a thorough wash!
