The Kravchenko Story
I became acquainted with the Siberian Cat in 1993. I imported my first four Siberian Kittens in May 0f 1994. To Read more about how Kravchenko evolved click here.
When I started there were only a handful of breeders all over the world and very few in the USA. No one, who was becoming a breeder of Siberians at that time, knew anything about the longevity of the Siberian. It was only through a continued breeding program for the last 22 years, that I began to realize that Siberians can live a very long time with proper diet and veterinarian care. That being said I now realize that my Kravchenko Siberians on average, reach the age of 16. My oldest Siberian was a few months shy of 20.
I now am beginning a retirement program for my Siberian cats. I want to retire them into good homes to live out their lives in comfort and security. They have worked hard to advance the Siberian in the USA. My wonderful Siberians, deserve to retire and live out their remaining life in the lap of luxury, in a pet home with nothing more to worry about than (1) where is the next meal (2) when is the next grooming and petting session (3) and whose bed do I sleep on this evening?
Adding to that, is the fact that I have been breeding the Siberian Cat for 22 years. Now that I am getting older, I must learn to respect my limitations. Therefore, in order to continue my kitten program, these loving adults must be placed into good homes. I am dividing them into groups and describing the ultimate home for them.
Group one is my retiring females.
I am looking for homes that fit the following criteria. (1) Families that have had two cats and one has passed away. This may be a great opportunity to bring in an age related cat to live with your existing feline. (2) Families that are willing to take two. These cats have had the companionship of other cats all their lives and will not do well as a single cat. If you are typically away from home for hours during each day, this could be an ideal situation when two of my adults go into the same home. They already know each other and would continue to be great companions to each other as well as being "double the fun" for their new owners. Currently the price range is $300-$500. This includes the spay/neuter, all the vaccinations and a Florida State Health Certificate.
The ideal home for them would be with another cat companion and a home that has access to a Florida room or a fenced in pool area. Though they have lived indoors, they have had access to an outside run for most of their lives.
A Red Mackerel Tabby with white male, who is a CFA champion, is looking for his furrever home. He is priced at $700 which includes all the vaccinations for the next three years, his neutering, microchipping, and a Florida State Health Certificate
One male about 6 years old. This cat has been de clawed on the front paws. This would be especially good for people that have medical issues when getting accidentally scratched by a cat.
There will be a range of prices from $300 to $700. All adults are sold as pets and will be altered before leaving. The price of the cat includes the altering, all vaccinations for the next three years, a feline Leukemia test, a fecal float test and a Florida State Health Certificate. All this plus a starter kit of their present brand of food and their favorite toys will accompany each Siberian upon their departure from the Kravchenko Pet Nursery!
Kravchenko will not place these adults in the following lifestyles.
No dogs, No small children. None of my Siberian cats have ever seen dogs or young children. If you have one or the other or both then I suggest that you set your goals for a Kravchenko Siberian KITTEN when they are available.
A single Adult Siberian will not be sold to a home especially where the occupants are going to be away daily for long periods of time, due to employment, school and travel.
My adult Siberians have had a generous amount of feline company. If your home is quiet like a tomb because you are not home much, then that is not a compatible environment for my retiring Siberians. However, if you are in this situation and are willing to consider having two Siberians together, then perhaps yours is an acceptable home for them.
Once I receive your e-mail, I will send you a questionnaire. This tool will determine which cats would be most compatible with your lifestyle. I will offer you a cat or cats based on your answers to my questions.
I would be over-stating the obvious when I say, the sooner you decide to begin the process of buying an Adult Kravchenko, the better the selection. Sometimes it will take up to one month after you make your selection before you can take possession. Why? Because most adults will take awhile longer to heal from surgery than kittens.
