S. McDONALD, USA, Florida

I was following LyuMur on Instagram for a couple of years. Every kitten she posted I wanted to have, but I thought it would be difficult to get one because of the distance. One day, I commented about a tiny little girl and Lyu asked if we would like to have her as part of our family.
My heart started beating so fast! After years of dreaming, could we possibly have one of her beautiful kittens? I said YES! She took care of all the travel arrangements for our little girl to fly to Miami. When we went to pick her up, my daughter (8 yrs old) and I couldn’t even imagine what was about to happen. We knew we were getting a beautiful cat, but what we got was more than a beautiful cat. We got the most loving, fun member of our family. Little Fiona.  She was healthy, shiny, and felt like a silk to touch. She adopted into our family quickly and became friends with my older cat. She follows us anywhere in the house, sleeps with us, and just curls up and sits with us. She is very playful and she actually talks to us.. She answers our questions with the cuttest meows. We call her name and she runs to us. She is so loving. She never scratches our furniture or rugs; she always uses the cat tree for that. She is super clean and smells wonderful. She eats dry food or can food. She is super quiet and never shows any behavior other than love. My over weight older cat finally started moving around and losing weight after Fiona came to us. Fiona has so many fans on our Instagram page, and everyone who sees her wants one now.. Our neighbors and friends love visiting Fiona and get pictures taken with her. When we went on a vacation, Fiona was the center of the attention at the hotel and got herself more fans. LyuMur has made such happiness possible for us. Lyu loves her animals. She follows up on Fiona and we send her happy little videos. From the bottom of my heart, we are thankful to LyuMur for ever and if you are looking for a beautiful and loving addition to your family, I highly recommend Lyu and her beautiful cats.

I am a Siberian breeder Edmondo Caccuri from Italy, Bari. I have already know Irina Nazarova and Lyu Novozhilova  for several years, so far I have bought from them 5 kittens already – 4 Neva masquerade girls – CVETALINA, QUILINA, JOLANKA and UMNITCA IZ TVERSKOGO KNYAZHESTVA and 1 traditional girl – KISS OF A SILVER MOON LYUMUR…

What about their kittens – they all are exceptional, beautiful, very sweet and above all healthy. Irina and Lyu are institutions among Russian breeders, expert, correct, available, good !!! I’m glad I had the honor of being able to buy kitten from them. Thanks Irina and Lyu

My journey to the Siberian breed.

I’ve always wanted a cat but never thought it possible because my husband and girls were allergic – so I never entertained the idea. But in 2018 I found out about Siberian breed. In September of that year I put a deposit down with a local breeder and was put on a waiting list. I was number 25! In February of 2019 it was finally my time to choose a kitten. Since the breeder kept telling me that the kitten will choose you, I thought that’s what would happen – but in this litter it did not – so I decided to pass on that litter and wait for the next. Then in April of 2019, I was scheduled to choose a  kitten again but that didn’t work out either because the breeder’s family was sick and cancelled the appointment. In the meantime, I was debating if I wanted to be a breeder and not be restricted with the clause to spay/neuter the kitten.

While still on the waiting list with the local breeder, I started to research the internet for Siberian cats in Russia. I finally came across Irina and Lyu’s website. After seeing some kittens I was interested in, I talked it over with my husband and he agreed to proceed further. To be honest – I was a little hesitant with this whole process but after communicating with them I felt very comfortable.

My first contact with Irina was June 8, 2019. I can’t say enough about how responsive, patient and helpful she was from the first contact to the end! Her partner Lyu was wonderful and patient too! They were supportive and helpful every step of the way. They are both excellent breeders because they raised such wonderful, social, loving kittens. And they continue to have an interest to stay in contact with me to see how their babies are doing.

Also, I have to say – Lyu is an amazing photographer!!! – Some of the shots she is able to capture are just breathtaking! We finally brought home our two kittens on August 8, 2019! We named the boy Micah and the girl Hadassah. Let me just say – it was definitely worth the year-long wait.

We love them soooo much! They bring so much joy to our family. Micah is so brave, gentle and loving – even when he gets ambushed by our dogs – he’s just calm and cool and lets them do whatever. He never once scratched or hissed at them! Now the dogs don’t even care when Micah comes into the room. My sweet girl Hadassah is so beautiful. Her eyes and coat are stunning!

We have a routine – every morning when I go upstairs she meows and follows me to the couch. I put my legs up and she sits on my lap to be brushed. She loves it and I love it too!!! No, she hasn’t braved the dogs yet – but that’s ok – we are all different – that’s what makes life beautiful. One last comment – My husband (who at one point – didn’t want any animals) calls these cats the upgrade to our dogs!!! Michelle, USA

From the first day, at my house, she had no problems with other cats and relatives, she loved to cuddle immediately and also welcomes our friends immediately by jumping on her lap. You can see how the breeder Lyu – the girl Dancing in the night grew up the first months of life with much love. Now we are waiting for the first babies of Dancing and hope for healthy, strong and loving kitten like her mother.
