Lundberg Siberians

 

March 1st, 2015


We are retiring Lundberg Pretty in Pink, to breed with lower allergen lines.  Pinks is a playful and gentle Siberian with a sweet personality. We have made the decision to breed with a queen having lower allergy levels, and are placing Pinks for adoption. Tom reacts mildly to her if she is in his lap.  She is suitable for a household with medium-low to low allergy levels. Pinks is available for immediate placement. Email or call 503-769-2038 if you are interested.

Birchgrove Tolya Taigovich,  Our first Siberian.


We are a small cooperative of Siberian hobby breeders, with several females and several litters each year. Our kittens are raised in the house with lots of daily attention, and are exceptionally gentle with children.  Siberians tend to be large cats with nice personalities, lovely voices, and make wonderful companions.

Siberians roam the house as members of the family. Crumpled pieces of paper and cat toys are often scattered around the floor. Before putting on shoes, it helps to check them for fuzzy mice and other toys. 

Many of our kittens live in homes with moderate to severe allergies.  The term "hypoallergenic cat" is often used to describe Siberians.  Large scale testing (over 400 Siberians cats/kittens were studied by Siberian Research, Inc) showed roughly half of Siberians have reduced levels of Fel d1 allergen, and only 15% had very low levels. If you are considering a Siberian because of allergens, please read our discussions on Allergies.

Families with a history of horse/rabbit reactions or egg allergies should be careful about bringing a cat into the home.These are the result of secondary reactions to cats, and again, are explained in detail in our Allergies page. About 80% of individuals with horse/rabbit or egg/meat allergies will show some reaction to low-Fel d1 Siberians, though not all will be severe.

Over the past ten years we standardised saliva testing for adult Siberians and developed methods to measure Fel d1 allergen in kittens.  We test some, but not all of our litters.  For more information, see KittenTesting.com
