Shawmekatz prides ourselves on breeding healthy, beautiful, Siberians that make wonderful family pets. I am a Siberian Preservation Breeder. I am dedicated to health testing all of my brain caps through HCM ultrasound scans done by certified veterinary, cardiologists, and DNA testing through optimal selection. All of my kittens will go home with their parents test results.

When I say that I am a preservation breeder, I want to see the Siberian breed stay the wonderful, wild looking Cat that they were meant to be and, not change them for any purpose of “fad” breeding.
All my breeding cats are imported from Europe, and or Russia. I do not, and will not have any cats that are American bred, other than the descendants of my original imports or, future imports from abroad in my program.
I feel this way about dogs as well, and own two working lines German Shepherds from vom Rheinland German Shepherds, bred by Pia Blackwell who, also dedicates her breeding program to the health and preservation of European standards.
I own a preservation breed Horse as well, a Lippitt Morgan. The Lippitt Morgan is old, breeding, lines of the original. Justin Morgan had a horse Morgan bloodlines. All of these horses are carefully bred so as, not to lose the wonderful characteristics of the “Horse America made”. All our kittens have a MINIMUM of their first 2 vaccinations giving them protection from the most common contagious illnesses. Shawmekatz kittens come with a limited, genetic health, guarantee per our contract. Copies of the parents(sometimes even grandparents and great grandparents) HCM ultrasound scan results to go home and every kitten package. Shawmekatz breeding cats are all HCM Ultrasound scanned at a minimum of every 18months for HCM A Certified Veterinary Cardiologist. Only cats that have negative results are used in the breeding program.
Our breeding cats are also DNA tested for PKD and PKD-1 as well as DNA tested through Optimal Selection. They are also, FeLV/FIV NEG, Wormed and, Ringworm Free.
We do not test for FeLD levels and make no such claims for allergy free. The Siberian however works quite well for people with mild allergies and, with the understanding that they may still have to take allergy medications.
We are a small, home-based, closed cattery. All our cats live with us (underfoot and never in cages) as, treasured pets first and, breeding cats second.
