Delta's babies 6 weeks

Delta's babies are now 6 weeks old. They are all reserved but I wanted to share these pics with you as they are just so cute! 

If you would like a Snowgum Siberian kitten, we currently have brown and gold kittens available for reservation. There are boys and girls in the litter and they will be ready for their new homes in around 9 weeks time.

Welcome Snowgum Elise!

Two weeks ago we had a very special new arrival here at Snowgum!  Our second baby, Elise Annabelle, was born on the 5th October at 12:30 pm, after just 1 hour of labour.  She weighed in at a good size of 8lbs 11oz and measured 53cm long.

We are all doing really well and Ethan is getting used to the idea of being a big brother- taking her toys and books to look at and blowing her kisses :-)  She is sleeping and eating well and is generally a very contented, happy baby.  We couldn't be happier!

Here are a few pics of her first couple of weeks.

 Who said the labour ward couldn't be fun?!

Wide awake:

She's a good sleeper!

Such cute little hospital gowns they dress them in!

 Going home! Beautiful blanket and cardigan hand knitted by Alexandrite Siberians! Thanks Jo! xx

Settling in at home:

A tired but happy mum :-)

Such a sweetie she is!

Meadow's Regional and International awards!

While we are awaiting the birth of our second non-fur child, I thought I should post some long overdue news of Meadow's show success for the last TICA show season.  Meadow did amazingly well and became a Supreme Grand Champion in just 3 shows!  There are few female Siberians with this title so it is a huge achievement and we were incredibly proud of her.  But her show sucess didn't stop there!  She went on to become the Western Europe Region's Best Siberian Cat, Western Europe's 4th Best Cat, the Best Brown (Black) Spotted Siberian Internationally and overall the Second Best Siberian Internationally in TICA!  Wow! Go Meadow! And all without travelling outside of the UK (we were unable to show her outside of the UK as she needed to be resident there for the full 6 months prior to travelling to Australia). We are hugely proud of her!

Here are the pics of her taken by Helmi Flick, that were displayed at the Regional Awards ceremony a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately we couldn't be there to accept her awards but we were cheering her on from Down Under anyway!

Meadow's next litter is planned to be to our home bred Regional Winner, Supreme Grand Champion Snowgum Titan.  We are excited to see what the pairing will bring us as it is not often you get the chance to mate two RW Supreme Grand Champions.   If you would like to be considered for a kitten from this litter, please get in touch via our website. We would love for one to go to a TICA show home if there is a show quality kitten in the litter. We miss showing in TICA and would love for our kittens to continue being showed there.
