Siberian cattery of Chicago, IL U.S.A.
Hello, fellow cat aficionados!
My name is Alexandra and welcome to my Siberian cattery, UnderPolaris! We are located in the northern suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, USA.
I have been breeding cats for nearly 20 years. I spent the first half of my breeding career with Bengal cats. Since 2006 I have transitioned to Siberians, the breed I grew up with as a child. Russia is my birth country. Back then, these cats did not have fancy titles or Pedigrees. They were just beautiful, large, long haired, emerald eyed, confident and intelligent house cats that could be obtained for free from a friend of a friend or a good neighbor if he or she liked you enough.
UnderPolaris kittens are raised exclusively in a home, "underfoot" environment where we introduce them to our family dogs from an early age. Being a small cattery that produces one or two litters at a given time, this ensures the socialization of each individual kitten, which undeniably contributes to their people-loving personalities.
I try to match closely each kitten to its prospective household environment, considering the requirements of its future owners and my extensive experience working with cats.
I breed only traditional color bloodlines (i.e., no colorpoint blue-eyed cats).
I offer the following colors with or without White in Classic or Mackerel patterns:
60 minute "allergy test" appointments are available by request to those who suffer from cat allergies. Cattery visit fee is $40, which will apply towards the purchase price of a kitten if a deposit is placed within 24 hours from the visit time.
A non-refundable deposit of $200 is required to reserve a kitten or to get on my wait list. I don't keep my customers waiting for longer than 2-4 months. I simply will not take your money if I don't expect a litter soon.
All my kittens are TICA registered and sold with a spay/neuter contract. They are health guaranteed, vaccinated per age and ready to go home at 11-12 weeks old.
NO DECLAWING ALLOWED!!!
All our initial communications will be conducted via emails only. This way all conversations are recorded and easily recalled if needed. Please drop me a note and I will respond within a few hours or sooner.
