We have been very successful in the show halls with both Yahroma and Jojo, and we have made many families very happy with wonderful siberian kittens. I am grateful for all the updates and pictures I always get (please keep them coming) so I can see how the kittens are doing in their new homes and how they are growing up. Nothing makes us happier then seeing pictures posted here on the page or getting an email with lovely pictures and updates.
Some of our "old timers" such as Toyka, Hulda, Ladybug and Zakhar have been retired and placed into loving pet homes. This is never an easy thing. They are either born here or they come to us at a very young age, and we are very attached to them, but they deserve a home where they will be a much loved and spoiled pet without having to deal with the stress of other cats around. We are very fortunate we have found wonderful families for all of our retirees, which made it easier on us, knowing what a great home they have now.
We have successfully placed a few breeding cats with dear friends and fellow siberian breeders who are doing wonderful and are successful in the show halls. It is not easy to find breeders to work with that uphold the same standards as we do, and we are grateful for the small group of outstanding breeders we are fortunate to work with.
We have brought in several new kittens from all over the world. Some are turning out to be a huge asset to our breeding program, and some are not exactly what we hoped for or expected, but that comes with the territory of getting new cats and unknown lines we have never worked with before. We love them all the same and if they don't work out for us in our breeding program, we will find them loving pet homes.
We are starting to keep several of our kittens that are born here, which are a result of years of hard work and collaboration with other breeders. Bee Do, Jojo and Bindi are 3 of them that we are excited to see grow up. It's amazing to watch our hard work pay off in the form of 3 outstanding kittens that will hopefully be a great asset to our breeding program.
We're very much looking forward to next year. We have some promising pairings coming up and our youngsters will all be having their first litters in the spring/summer of this year. It will be very exciting to see what that will bring us.
It's been a great year, without major problems, with lots of happiness, wonderful new kittens, great results in the show halls and great ongoing friendships. We thank you all for your love and support and for those of you that have a kitten or cat from us, thank you for choosing us. We know you have many, many options and we are grateful you decided to get a siberian from us. Thank you to all of you for being a part of the Mystic Melody family.
That leaves us nothing but to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2016!
