A Kender Siberian Hits 17 years of age

Just rec'd this today - what a wonderful tribute to our breeding program ! This kitty was born in 199 to our Furtuosity's Illya Veetovich of Kender - and he is 17 years old now !

Woody is an awesome ambassador for the breed and we couldnt be more pleased and proud.

From Woody's family -: Hello Alice!

It's been a long time! Thought you might like to see a pic of Woody (Siberian cat we purchased from Audrey in 1999, she called him Mako, he is descended from Ilya Veetovich & Confetta). Woody is 17, he has had his struggles with seizures and food allergies but he is going strong, still feisty but soooo sweet! That's exactly what our vet keeps saying....amazing! He has used up at least 3 of his 9 lives but keeps on going! He has 4 brothers: Baxter 14 Maine Coon mix, Bug 13 orange short hair, Ziggy & Simon 3 yr old brothers both gray/white short hair. They all have a healthy respect for the old man because if they don't he bites their ears with his 2 remaining teeth. Tail: mat removed. We used to get him shaved with a lion cut every summer but his skin is too frail for that now. Hope all is well, glad to hear you are still breeding Siberians they are the best cats ever!

Illya - was his father - 


  1. Our Lilly was his first cousin. She lived to 16. These cats are amazing! Their longevity is something but they have personalities that are awesome too. Be well, Woody.
