We breed healthy Siberian Forest Cats who are on the petite side for those who love the friendly, hypoallergenic, loyal, strong, soft and hearty Siberian but who for any reason prefer their cats—boys and girls alike—to be small to medium as long lived adults: ideally and usually less than 12 lbs for boys and less than 9 lbs for girls & as small as 7-10 lbs. for boys and 6-8 lbs for girls.
We‘ve been breeding cats for 20 years and we take pride in that we don’t create pairings between cats who are closer than second cousins: we don’t mate closely related cats. This avoids traits like bad dentition, behavioral problems, and of course anything worse. We also are proud that we always raise all our cats in a homey, down to earth setting where they are free to lounge and roam and are not kept in pens, cages, kennels, grates, crates or gates. It’s a lot of extra work and a lot of extra fun and our felines are happier and healthier for it.
Our cats walk, play and sleep where they like and spend all day together in society with one another and us, so they are extremely friendly and experienced with normal, everyday indoor life. We donate significantly to the Humane Society and we believe that as family members of people every cat and dog should have a good forever home and guaranteed help finding one when they don’t.
We register our cats with The International Cat Association and we are a TICA registered cattery, adhering to the TICA code of ethics. In our opinion, TICA is brilliant and awesome—they truly do promote Fabulous Felines, Fun and Friendship! We formally pass this affiliation to you as the cat’s new protector.
Our kittens come trained to use only the litter box and they are comfortable having their claw tips trimmed and have already begun learning to sharpen their claws on scratching posts. Each kitten comes with two exams, first and second FVRCP vaccinations, full veterinary records of all of this, implanted microchip paid for and registered in your name, and a contract and two year genetic health guarantee.
We will sign an agreement together (when you come over to bring your kitten home) which states that you will spay/neuter your kitten, that you won’t ever declaw her/him, and that you will not breed the kitten or have the kitten for any other reason than to share its individual companionship as a member of your household with you and your loved ones.
You will receive TICA registration and a full pedigree from the father’s and mother’s sides both after you provide your veterinarian’s proof of spay/neuter.
OUR SIBERIAN CATS
We feed our queens and kings (and kittens!) a mixture of good quality dry food several times a day with a very small amount of wet food mixed in just once a day. We use clumping clay cat litter in all of our many litter boxes which we clean once or twice daily.
We groom our cats but only perfunctorily, combing them a bit and looking out for and removing tangles. We do our best to cut their nails so they aren’t tempted to “sharpen” our furnishings or get serious when they play and wrestle. We have scratching posts for claw sharpening and the whole cattery is a kitty playground so they get great exercise.
We feed them all 4-6 times a day and don’t leave food out so no one over grazes or becomes territorial. If an adopter ever needs details or tips on what we feed them or how we advise managing daily habits and kitty conundrums, just ask and we will provide!
Our 100% Siberian blood lines are Russian with many show champions (grand, world and international!) in their pedigrees and with your kitten you will receive a pedigree with full five generation depth along with registration in your name after you have fulfilled the wellness/spay/neuter contract obligations.
We strive for our Siberians to be less than average in size—small for the breed—and yet every bit the big hearted Forest Cat that fans and newcomers love and appreciate. Most Siberians are slower to mature than other breeds, continuing to grow and develop until 2-3+ years of age, but, being smaller, ours are precocious and fast to develop, reaching their full height/length around 1 year of age. They will continue to fill out after that as well, of course, based on nutrition and activity levels :)
Otherwise our cats possess classic Siberian traits...
• They have low Fel d1 counts so people with low to medium level allergies can enjoy being close to them and touching them with minimal or no allergic reaction.
• They have long back legs, jump far and high, express loyalty and good natured friendliness before selfishness and snootiness, and their coats insulate to keep them warm when it’s cold and breathe to keep them cool when it’s hot.
• They like people, kids, other cats, and dogs.
• They don’t sweat the small stuff and enjoy a variety of foods (that said, do not try to expand your kitten’s palate until at least 6 months of age!!!).
You might have to keep an eye on their fluffy fur and help them remove various tag alongs but their incredible wispy softness and matching cuddliness make it well worth it!!

AP who brought home Scotty to her family winter 2021
I've finally torn myself away from petting our beautiful and loving petite Siberian to write this review. We didn't know much about Siberians or working with a pet breeder before talking with Jamie. All we knew was we wanted a cat and my husband is allergic. Contacting Jamie seemed like a long shot... but fast forward a few months, and we couldn't be happier. My husband has zero allergic reaction to our cat. It's truly amazing.
As a huge added bonus, the personality of this cat is unbelievable! He's loving and easy-going, likes attention and playing, and is wonderful with my seven-year-old daughter. He seeks us out for cuddles -- not standoffish at all.
Jamie was extremely patient and clear in all of our interactions and went above and beyond in helping us make sure we ended up with the right kitty. He walked us through every step of the way in making sure Scotty was settled and comfortable.
PL, whose gang welcomed Siame summer 2020
I adopted a kitten from Jamie and the entire experience was above and beyond. All of his kittens were super friendly and well socialized. He’s open to answering any and all questions and offers any advice to help you on your way. Even months after your kitten comes home if you reach out he will take the time to check up on you and help with any concerns you may have. The kittens will always be a part of his family no matter how far they go and you can tell he cares about the well being of each one. I can’t say enough good things about Petitesiberians!
AT, who got Blaze for the family Spring 2020
As a first time cat owner with allergies I was super hesitant but then came Jamie and PetiteSiberians. Jamie is the most loving responsible breeder that you know is all about his cats and their happiness. I was truly impressed by the location, space and freedom the cats are given. Blaze joined our family in April and has brought so much joy. He has a very even temper with an adventurous spirit. He has learned tricks (spin and sit) and has a weekly grooming schedule of a bath and nail cutting. I have never experienced any allergies with him.
CB, who got Helen in August, 2020
After speaking with multiple NY based Siberian Cat Breeders, Jamie from Petite Siberians is by far the most professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful breeder out there! Jamie made the experience of adopting my first kitten, Helen, to be joyful and seamless. Jamie is very reliable and helpful with anything you need to know about your new kitten. Jamie even kept me updated weekly with pictures of Helen to be sure I saw her grow up! Helen is now 5 months old, bright, playful and welcoming to anyone who walks in my door! She truly is an amazing companion, thanks to Jamie. I highly recommend Petite Siberians!
CL and NV, who got Taiga & Ollie over the 2020 summer
We adopted two kittens from Petite Siberians in July 2020 and could not be happier! Jamie was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process and even brought the kittens to us in California. Both kittens have such wonderful personalities, and we could tell from day 1 that they were well-socialized, confident cats. They are the sweetest and cuddliest companions, and very playful and adventurous to boot. Both came to us litter box trained, and they’re remarkably fast learners (they come when called, and have been making great progress on high fives!). We highly recommend Petite Siberians and are so thrilled about these new additions to our family.
HP and family, who brought Phyllo home in the spring of 2020...
The Petite Siberian is a professional and trustworthy breeder. We were looking for our 2nd Siberian! We love the breed. Jamie helped us through our decision making with patience and great kindness. Jamie answered all our questions and was available and easy to reach as we worked out the details. It’s clear from Jamie’s depth of knowledge and expertise that he truly loves the breed and loves his work! All aspects of the purchase were managed professionally and simply.
We just love our new kitty! Thanks Jamie!
AH+UE, who got Simba in late 2019...
I cannot begin to describe our experience with Jamie and his cat family! We started off this journey not knowing how to approach bringing a kitten into our growing family and had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Jamie. He was extremely helpful from the start and you can tell he cherishes every kitten and cat. He let us know the ins and out of bringing a Siberian kitten into our family and helped us prepare. We not only gained a kitten into our family that day but also a friend!
GR, who came over in December 2019 for Kimchi...
My family and I were looking for a hypoallergenic cat when I happened upon Petite Siberians. As luck would have it, two adorable kittens were available, and my daughter and I were invited to Jamie’s to select one. We were encouraged to spend as much time as we wanted, to observe and play with the kittens. I immediately noticed that all of Jamie’s cats were friendly and sociable, and that the kittens themselves were being hand raised in a home setting (not in cages). The cats were free to roam and engage freely with each other and the adults. Jamie was extremely accommodating and patient while we took ages to make a decision. Once home, our kitten transitioned remarkably quickly to his new surroundings, using the litterbox immediately and eating well. As we had never taken in a kitten, Jamie was immediately responsive with my many questions and concerns, and we felt fully supported and secure in our decision. He is extremely knowledgeable about transitioning kittens to their homes. I appreciate the conscientious care that Petite Siberians devoted to raising our kitten in the early weeks, because over the months, Kimchi has remained as friendly, affectionate and happy as he was when we adopted him. He has become an integral and loving part of our family, very easy going with visitors and gorgeously charismatic. I heartily recommend Petite Siberians to anyone looking to bring one into their home. The whole experience was extremely positive.
