Welcome to Siberian Cat Wales

A small, family - run, hobby breeding cattery having membership to TICA  and GCCF cat registries. All kittens are registered with the prefix FELISISSIMUS. I breed for health, temperament and conformation.

The welfare of my cats is central to what I do at the cattery. Every cat living and raised here have a huge place in our familys'hearts.

Siberian Cat Wales is set in the  Heritage Town of Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. The cattery is situated close to the major visitor attractions of Cardiff, Caerphilly Castle and Castell Coch in the South and the impressive rural landscapes of Brecon Beacons to the North of us. The temperate climate here in South Wales, mirrors the climate of St Petersburg , Russia , where some of my Traditional Siberian breeding cats were born and raised as young kittens..

I have always loved animals.I was particularly drawn to family cats with a passion. Cats just fascinated me a child and I realised quickly how owning one, could have therapeutic benefit to my life. I was totally intrigued with their behaviour and this has stuck with me ever since.

I have a science background at higher education level in biological based sciences and technology. I also have good general knowledge of genetics. This, coupled with working knowledge of advanced hygiene practices in the food industry, has undoubtedly put me in good stead for the running of a healthy and happy breeding cattery, free from known illness and disease.

My cat breeding started in 2010 with the RagaMuffin breed, having imported cats from original lineage from the USA. In January 2014, I decided that the main aim of my cattery was to provide life - enriching soulmates for people with Hypoallergenic Qualities found in Traditional, Siberian cats and kittens. I then established Siberian Cat Wales.

Siberian Cat Wales is the first officially established hobby breeding cattery in Wales, specialising in breeding and protecting the Traditional Siberian Cat.We have experience in importing unique lines into my cattery to ensure we maintain high standards of kitten quality for you. All our breeding stock have ancestry from Russia.

Since establishing in January 2014, I have become a Breeder Member of the Siberian Cat Club, here in the UK.

Best Wishes,

General Information for cat allergy sufferers

Some people have an allergy to cats but can tolerate a Siberian cat or kitten. This is because the main cat protein allergen causing the allergy, FELd1, is found at lower levels in Siberian cats and a few other cat breeds, like the Rex – type cats.

We cannot account for the rarer FELd4 allergen with our cats and kittens.

Siberian Cat Wales offer an enhanced allergy sitting service which is conducted at my home. Allergy sittings are conducted in a specially prepared room. A purebred Siberian cat or kitten is introduced to the allergy sufferer, in a calm and relaxed manner for up to one hour. No other cats will be present at the sitting. This allergy sitting test will confirm if an allergy sufferer will be able to tolerate the presence of a pure bred Siberian cat or kitten.

Siberian Cat Wales provides a very controlled sitting to ensure that allergy sufferers get the best chance of tolerating a Siberian Cat or kitten.

Here, I have a 95% success rate in our sittings and on those very, very rare occassions whereby the allergy sitting fails it is normally due to the clients having an overloaded immune system due to other allergies they possess.

I do not treat our kittens with allergen denaturers or chemicals to influence the test results.

You will be asked to sign a disclaimer prior to entering the allergy test. I am happy for the allergy sufferer to sit with a cat or kitten for up to one hour, maximum. Tea and coffee and light refreshments are provided in the allergy sitting room for all clients.

Allergy sittings will be conducted with a maximum if 2 persons per sitting.

Please note that the enhanced service of the allergy sitting is an additional cost to the purchase price of my kittens.

The current price of the allergy sitting is £30 for a maximum time of


The allergy sitting can be booked via mutual agreement with myself via email and payment can be made by BACS transfer on the day of booking the sitting.

Payment must be received prior to the allergy sitting. I will not accept to undertake an allergy sitting without a payment received beforehand.

Hi Everyone,

I just want to let you all know that my HOMEpage gallery running in the background of that page has become problematic of recent and I am awaiting for some intructions from my website designer to help me sort the matter. It appears that some pictures are not being shown causing gaps in the slideshow.

I do apologise for this inconvenience and hope to get it sorted as  soon as possible.

I would like to thank Laura so much for giving us the opportunity of owning such a precious addition to our family, our wonderful Myfi. I have had cats all my life including breeds such as Persian,Birman and Bengal as well as moggies and have loved them all.However,never did I realise there was such a loving , intelligent and loyal breed as a Siberian. From the first time we were in contact with Laura she has been so knowledgeable and helpful and even now,months down the line, I know I can contact her any time for advice or even a chat . Myfi came from such a good home with Laura and had the very best start in life , she is such a lovely natured cat. I wouldn't hesitate to have another Siberian from Laura. Thank you again Laura for our little girl Myfi .

Lynne and Sian (Myfi, Chi Chi and Rocky) , Groesfen, South Wales.

I first spoke to Laura when I telephoned her to make enquiries about my husband Peter and I having one of her kittens. Laura was very helpful, extremely friendly but professional too. Her "cat knowledge" is amazing! I could tell just by talking to her on the phone how much she cared about her cats and kittens. This obviously isn't just a job for her.....she loves it and it shows. We visited Laura in October 2014 and I knew straight away that my first impression was correct. Just watching her with her cats and kittens of various ages I could see just how much she cares and loves each and every one as individuals. Laura answered all our questions and gave us lots of information and helpful tips for the future.....and she still does! Bless her, even now, she is always at the end of a phone, text or email if I have a query. We were lucky enough to be able to pick a beautiful girl kitten who we named Poppy. From the moment she was reserved, Laura sent us weekly updates and lots of lovely pictures so we could follow Poppy's progress. In January 2015, when Poppy was 13 weeks old we brought her home. She is such a beautiful, sweet, loving girl. A bundle of fun who loves a lap to nap on and regular cuddles. You can see she has been given the best start in life. She is a credit to Laura!! And a big thank you also to Laura's children who regularly cuddled and played with Poppy which I believe, helped give her such a sweet nature.

Having a bad allergy to cats for all of his life, my husband and I thought that owning a cat would be completely out of the question. When we heard about Siberian Cat Wales, we contacted Laura. She was always quick to reply, friendly and very informative. We met Martha for an allergy sitting and fell in love with her. We were unsure if Nick was allergic to her or not due to it being hay-fever season, but Laura was so helpful and recommended and arranged other tests to determine if he was allergic or not. Luckily he wasn't! Since we've had Martha at home Nick hasn't had any allergic reactions at all. Neither have two members or his family who also usually suffer from bad allergic reactions to cats. Martha has made our house a home and she is absolutely adorable. So affectionate and friendly and we are adamant that this is due to how well she was brought up for the first few months of her life. We can't imagine life without her now and we would definitely recommend Siberian Cat Wales to anyone who thought that owning a kitten was not possible due to having an allergy (or anyone who just wants a well looked after and friendly kitten!)

Kate, Nick and Martha Boxall, Yorkshire

Laura is a very honest, professional and caring person and you can see the love she has for her cats. It is obvious that she has a genuine passion for what she does and her extensive knowledge proves this along with the affection and environment she provides for her cats. It is really lovely to see someone care as much as you would for your own animal. Having had Yuri for some time now I can honestly say that he is so true to the ‘traits’ of the breed that you can see he comes from very good lines. He is picture perfect to the breed and you can tell he has been brought up in a loving environment by his personality and behaviour towards me and my family, even people he meets for the first time. Laura has been a pleasure to deal with, both approachable and supportive which is exactly what you want from a professional breeder.

Kay,Alan and YURI Thorndyke (Ogmore Vale, South Wales, UK)

We had spent a whole year visiting cat shows, talking to breeders, researching the different breeds and learning their ways. Among all of the people we met along the way, Laura stood out as the most sincere and caring by far. Her kittens are cosseted and loved from the moment they are born and are only allowed to be homed with people who have been vetted by Laura! Thankfully, Laura allowed us to adopt two of her boys, Freddie and Bertie who have transformed our house into a home with their boundless energy and mischievous ways. We were thrilled when Laura asked us to also adopt Ruby, Freddie and Bertie’s mama, who is helping us to keep them in order.

Before we reached a decision Laura invited us to visit her and to see the kittens in her home; this visit convinced us in every way possible that we could never find a more stable and loving environment for kittens to be born into. Laura is professional in every aspect of cat breeding with the added – and unique - extra touch of loving every one of her cats and kittens. We know that we are not on our own if we should need advice or guidance. Any e-mail query about the kittens care or diet etc; Laura answers quickly and positively. If you are searching for a kitten from a good home you need look no further than Laura.

Margot and Peter Webb (Solihull, West Midlands, UK)

Laura has entrusted me with two of her wonderful kittens and I am now the proud owner of Cumin and Star Anise! It took me some time to look through the breed and to find breeders and I could not be happier for my decision to choose Laura for adopting them.

Laura has been great throughout the whole process. What I liked the most is that you can tell that she is not a professional breeder (although extremely professional in all her dealings) and that she genuinely cares for her babies and the homes they will end up in. The cattery and her place were very clean and tidy and all kittens were beautiful, well socialised and happy. From the moment I chose the two kittens she kept sending me updates and pictures to let me know of how they are doing. In addition, she is very helpful with any questions and always responds back with useful information and advice. I have already started to consider of getting another kitten and I would definitely go back to Laura!

Valmina Prezzani (Maida Vale, London, UK)

After an extensive search through various breeders and cats I am now the very proud owner of Arti my new baby! He is absolutely perfect and more than what I could have wished for! Laura is a fantastic breeder and recommended Arti would be perfect for me and she was right! I have no doubt that he is only so perfect due to the love and care he received from Laura and her family! I will definitely be returning to get Arti a little brother! Full credit really must go to Laura and her family all kittens and cats at her home were very well kept and all very beautiful! I'm so glad I chose to have a kitten from her than any of the other breeders I had researched over the months! Thank you so much Laura and family for allowing me to have Arti in my life! I will keep in touch with pictures of him growing up x

Jordan Jones (Blackwood, Gwent, UK)

Having had the experience of buying 5 kittens throughout my life from 5 different professional breeders I can honestly say that our experience with Laura has been so fantastic and so much better than all previous breeder relationships. She has been happy to advise us, she truly cares for her cats and kittens and is more concerned with matching her kittens to the right homes than with the commercial side of things. As a consequence our kitten "Sol" is incredibly confident, well socialised and has clearly benefitted from his wonderful start in life. Laura is keen to keep up with our little boy...and we can't wait to show her that she chose the right home for him with us. Laura is an absolutely brilliant breeder and the whole experience of dealing with her has been fabulous.
