After we found out at the end of 2018 that Siberian cats (despite the large number of fur) do not produce many allergens, we immediately started looking for a breeder. We originally wanted a dog (to be more precise a Shiba Inu), but with a maisonette apartment on the third floor without garden, this was simply not possible. After some research, we found a breeder near Paderborn, not far from Nathalie’s home town of Hagen. Here, along with many other cats, the little Iva was also offered, which was the last of her litter and had not yet found a new owner.
She was born on June 6, 2018 and we picked her up on January 3, 2019 when she was about 6 months old. It already had the name “Iva” and would have been intended for further breeding if its parents were not relatively young. She counts as a real pedigree cat and is therefore often called “Diva” by us, which is also due to her behavior.
