News: Gabriel will continue his budding Junior Exhibitor career showing Otto this summer in Texas!
When we say we raise our kittens as part of our family we aren’t kidding. They are part of our family and because of this you’re kitten is sure to be an active, friendly and confident member of your household.
Our young son, Gabriel, has a special love of animals and is always interested in what the cats and dogs are doing. He even has a best friend, Sonja! She plays with him and is quite gentle and loving. There is nothing more beautiful than hearing his delightful giggles and seeing the smile that lights up his face as he interacts with “his kitties”. He even meows at the cats, and at us, on occasion
One of my favorite photos is Gabriel pushing his toy drum around the living room and putting blocks, and other toys on top of Sonja as she happily rests inside the drum. They do this every day and Sonja does everything she can to get his attention so that he comes and plays. See more Photos of Gabriel’s antics with the cats here…. COMING SOON!
Our kittens are also raised around our giant breed dog, Connor. He loves the cats very much but can be loud and rambunctious. Occasionally this gets the cats a bit startled but it’s not long before they are running back into the living room and even batting at his tail or rubbing on his legs.
We take pride not only in the superior health and beauty of our cats but in their affectionate and engaging personalities. Our kitten buyers agree that Pendraig Siberians are true love for life! Read Pendraig Siberian Kitten Owner Testimonials.

We have always had a wide variety of colors available but we specialize in red (orange tabby Siberian Cats) and torbie*/ tortie* (Calico Siberian Cats). We are one of the only catteries producing self reds and creams (aka Red Solids and Cream Solids). One of our goals is to continue producing the very rare red/cream solids but they are extremely rare for a reason.
Currently we are taking a break from silvers and smokes but we hope in 2012 or 2013 to welcome it back as we have our golden line established.
We are proud to be one of the few catteries consistently producing lovely red males and the sometimes rare red females. Our young up and coming male Quantocius and soon Eamonn will bring new blood to our red lines while Sibeal brings back the SunFire legacy continuing the red but adding the new facet of golden to the SunFire color scheme.

We launched our golden Siberian cat program with Esenia Auric. She came directly from a prestigeous cattery in Russia. The Auric Cattery is known for producing some of the most gorgeous Golden Siberian Cats. We have a golden carrier stud, TGC Jorrah Karat that has helped us produce our first golden litter, the R litter and our future stud Rhys. His sister Rhosyn is delightful and will be living in Hong Kong.
We will be complimenting our lovely girl with more golden and golden carrier cats as and when we can. We hope to introduce another golden Siberian or golden carrier next year. We were surprised and delighted to have the returning SunFire line be a golden torbie.
We have long admired this unique, and very rare, coloring and it is now our good fortune to have the darling Esenia, Rhys and Sibeal in our homes and our hearts.
Our golden kittens are not only beautiful. They are affectionate and always ready and wanting to cuddle. Esenia passed on her sweet nature to both of her kittens and they were by far our youngest kittens ever to learn to purr, doing so before 3 weeks of age.
Thank you for all the people who have mentored us, helped us learn about goldens and continue to advise us on this unusual and rare color.
We breed only for true Siberians excluding the Neva Masquerade (or color point gene). We test our breeding cats for neva carrier status and strive to produce cats worthy to be considered authentic and traditional Siberian cats.
We specialize in Russian Imports of distinction and focus heavily on type, health, longevity and loving personalities. We have an exclusive foundation line, directly imported from Russia, that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
This line is denoted by the SunFire surname. We are so glad to welcome back our SunFire line with the beautiful and alluring AspenCreek Sibeal SunFire of Pendraig. She is out of our girl Pendraig Halinka Grigorevna SunFire and carries on our rare foundation line, while bringing it back with a new dimension of golden that was carried hidden in the line all these years but came to life when she was paired up with AspenCreek's lovely stud, Ivan.
We have added another foundation line from Fialka cattery with our girl Turandot-Amour Fialka who also adds beautiful type, a perfect coat for the breed and strong build and large size. We will go far adding her genes to the golden and red lines we currently have and seeing how far we can go.
To further our goal towards healthy cats we buy our breeding stock from breeders who screen for HCM and PKD routinely and then test our own cats.
We are screening for HCM, PKD, FIV, and FeLV making sure our breeding cats have received healthy and clear reports. We will be testing each and every adult (over 2 years old) that we breed for HCM to help insure you the healthiest cats possible. The health of our kittens is paramount! Expect the very best.... get a Pendraig Siberian Cat!
Pendraig is devoted to preserving and protecting this very rare breed through careful breeding practices, natural rearing, and gene diversity in our lines. Our foundation lines are exclusive in the breed and unrelated to any other Siberian cats being shown or bred. Our lines are truly rare and especially important to the future of this incredible breed.
We are proud to be the stewards of these lines and we continue to search out other rare and unused lines to combine with popular, and multi-champion established lines to bring you the best of both words. A healthy, vibrant, and genetically viable line of cats with the type and beauty you expect of a Pendraig Siberian Cat.
We participated in an exchange program with our dear friend and fellow breeder of (N)Siberikos cattery in Norway bringing the amazing, darling and gorgeous (N)Siberikos FeLine of Pendraig to the United States and sending off our girl out of Gemma, Pendraig Nimue Emrys of (N)Siberikos. We look forward to many years of friendship and cooperation with this and other catteries dedicated to preserving the Siberian cat.
We absolutely believe in securing a wide and diverse gene pool to keep our rare breed as healthy as possible. We limit line-breeding and inbreeding practices within our own cattery. To us breeding is not a hobby, it is a passionate and lifelong endeavor that requires careful and consistent studying, research and care. We do not believe in shaping the breed to fit our personal taste, nor to manipulate show wins, but we do believe in holding true to the Siberian Forest Cat's roots.
When you buy a Pendraig Siberian Cat you are getting integrity in breeding. We believe in the true and authentic Siberian Cat and we know you will too!
