Murlyka D 8 wk Group shot

Well we finally did it - got all the kittens together and got a picture.
You need to catch them when they are tired and then you need to keep them all awake -

I think its a mighty fine bunch of grandchildren - wouldn't you agree?

The Sky Tower

The girls were rather jealous of my outdoor run - so the builder made a little space for them.
He made a beautiful run just outside their door but the typist thought the Siberians need places to get
up high and enjoy the view - so this is what the builder came up with - There are three longs runs suspended from the ceiling like the one Miisu is laying on.

They connect with gang planks for the kittens to walk or as they get braver they simply jump from one to another. Room for the whole litter of kittens and all the girls to hang out and look down on the rest of the world.

I gotta say the builder is a pretty handy guy to for a cat to hang around with.

Anya and Alina

So this is what retirement looks like - my first love Anya and our daughter Alina (Ali) now leave in Vernon, BC with 5 adoring family members. Here they are enjoying the view from the window - you can clearly see the difference between a mackerel tabby (left) and a classic tabby (right) in this picture. They both have great coats and beautiful eyes. We miss them here at Murlyka but are very happy that they have found such a wonderful new family to pamper them.

Introducing Seven

Seven is a beautiful little girl who looks a lot like her mom. She is a mackerel tabby with high white markings including a white shoulder necklace and chevron on her back. She is finished off with a white tip on her tail and dark left elbow patch.

They don't come any sweeter than seven - she loves to cuddle in beside you and purr.

She's doing all the big cat things like using the water fountain and going outside in the cat run - To see her in action check out her web album

Introducing 6

Six is the sweetest little boy. He is a very dark mackerel tabby with a white tip and extra white mark on his tail. He has dramatic white eyeliner and lovely symmetrical blaze on his forehead. At the moment he has the loudest purr and is one of the most cuddly of all the kittens. He also can be a very playful boy as you can see by checking out his web album

Introducing Five

One of these kittens is not like the others - one of these kittens is not the same (Sesame Street). Well the kitten that isn't like the others is the beautiful classic girl Five. She is the only one of the litter that takes after our side of the family - more specifically me! with her beautiful classic markings and no white. She is a solid, stocky girl whose coat is getting thicker and fluffier everyday (that she gets from her Daddy Sasha). She also gets her sweet sad expression from her Dad. She loves to eat, play and check things out. She will be going with Sasha (when he retires) to live with Marlene and Ken - who are very lucky to get two of my most beautiful offspring.

Introducing Four

As you can see she started out cute and just got cuter and cuter. Four is a black classic tabby with white little girl. Her asymmetrical facial markings make her quite distinctive. She is quite the little princess who happens to have a huge "meow" when encouraging the typist to get the food ready more quickly and the loudest purr when scratched behind her ears. Despite her princess appearance she is a playful girl who loves to wrestle.

Introducing Three

Three is a lovely mackerel tabby with white boy. He has the least white of all the bicolor kittens. You can check out all his markings in his web album.

He is a hefty boy - He was the largest kitten at birth - a mere 5 gms heavier than the next kitten. Now he is about 100 gms heavier than the others. He likes to eat and sleep and as you can see from the pictures above he also likes to play. He loves his ears scratched and will cuddle close to get some loving.

Introducing "Two"





Hi Sorry for the delay in introducing "Two" but the typist has misplaced the camera cord. Who knows what she'll lose next.

Anyway these pictures are a few days old but you get a sense of what a lovely mackerel tabby and white boy Two is. He has a tiny white tip on his tail and an even tinier (about 20 white hairs) spot on his left shoulder. He and Three look a lot alike but when looking at them from above Two's white makes a necklace across his shoulders.

We are always wondering what will Two get up too next - as he's always on the go - checking out the every toy, every one who comes in the room and what's to eat, what's to chase. He loves being scratched and especially loves running up to the camera to see how it works.

We'll be updating his web album when the typist finds the rest of the camera........ In the meantime you can check out his pictures from last Friday.

Introducing Murlyka Litter D Kitten One





It is my great pleasure to introduce ONE - The typist hopes to get their registered names soon but at the moment they are still One, Two, etc. in the order they were born.

ONE is a black classic tabby with white and our female rendition of a little Charlie Chaplin with her black nose. She is a fearless little girl and just as she was the first to enter the world, she was the first to climb out of the birthing basket, the first to drink milk, the first to eat big cat food, etc. She is our little ground breaker - where One goes the others follow.

As you can see from the picture above One is also a food critic - who didn't think much of the last glop the typist tried to feed them.

You can see more pictures of One on her web album.

Tomorrow - Pictures of Two!

My New House

For the past couple of weeks I've been enjoying my new house. Its perfect for a guy like me - it has my own private catrun, lots of ventilation for summer but has a large insulated and heated room for winter. It's got a great view overlooking the pond. It also has some chairs so the typist can hang out with me in the shade.

Its even got a great little peephole so I can keep my eyes on the ducks!

The best part - I think my fancy new house helped me get a date! The lovely Odetta Sibaris of Windy Acres (Her typist is Carolee Penner - a new breeder in Manitoba) came to visit and I did my best to insure there will kittens in August.
