Shaded Sky Siberians is a home based cattery located in Vancouver, Washington. We specialize in breeding traditional colored Siberian Forest Cats. Shaded Sky is dedicated to producing the highest quality of cats. Our selection process for breeding cats entails careful research. We also foster close relationships with the breeders from whom we adopt so that we can keep up to date with the health and prosperity of parents and siblings. The key components we look for when selecting our kings and queens are health, genetic diversity, temperament, and beauty. Our Siberians and cattery are registered with TICA and CFA.
We test all of our breeding cats for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukemia virus (FeLV). We utilize genetic testing using the Optimal Selection Feline Genetic Breeding Analysis to screen for several genetic abnormalities. Links to the genetic testing results of our cats are available on the “Our Cats” page. We research the pedigrees of our breeding cats to ensure that our kings and queens are as genetically diverse as possible. Although Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) in pedigrees cannot be completely accounted for we are committed to responsible breeding practices to reduce the risk of HCM in all of our lines. Our breeding cats are screened by ultrasound for HCM annually. For more information about HCM in Siberian Forest Cats please refer to the Siberian Research Center Website
Socialization is a key component to any breeding program. Our cats live in the home with us and are used to living with other cats, a toddler, a Bernese Mountain Dog, and a revolving door of adults.

We had a great time at the show! Some amazing Siberians competed and we loved seeing them all. Uh-Ty and Skyla both did well throughout the three-day event and Skyla even earned her championship title. We loved meeting everyone and were so happy with the reception our cats got from the public.
