Hi! I am Paula and with my fiance, Lawrence, and my 8 year old daughter, Mary Rose, I run The Merry Rose Cattery. Our cattery started in 2012 when my late husband passed away from brain cancer. Mary Rose was only 2 at the time and I needed something to bring a little light and laughter back into our lives. Over the years, our beautiful Siberian Forest Cats have done that and far more. They have become something of an obsession for us. Our kittens are raised in our home sleeping on our beds, cuddling on our laps and learning how to be part of a family. We pride ourselves on not just raising purebred cats but raising loving family members.
Yes! Now let me explain what hypoallergenic really means. Cats produce a protein called Fel D1. It is in their saliva, urine, etc. so it is pretty much unavoidable as it gets in their fur when they groom themselves. Siberians produce far less Fel D1 than other cats. As a result people with cat allergies can live with them without reacting as long as the protein they are allergic to is Fel D1. Since almost everyone who has a cat allergy is reacting to Fel D1 Siberian Forest Cats are hypoallergenic cats for almost all allergy sufferers. There is a lot more I want to tell you about allergies and pet allergies specifically so please visit our allergy page.
Getting a kitten from someone you have never met can be frightening... especially when you are worried about having an allergic reaction to it. I completely understand that. That is why we offer our two week no questions asked guarantee. No matter what the reason if you return your kitten to us during the first two weeks after you take it home we will give you a full refund. A lot of breeders tell you to take the kitten to your vet in the first 24 hours because that is the full extent of their guarantee. We don't think that is fair to you or the kitten. Now here is the good news. After all the kittens we have bred and placed with allergy sufferers over the years we have only had 2 returns. That says a lot about how low in allergens Siberian Forest Cats are.
