Inspurrations Zhaklin of SemperFi

Zhaklin (Jackie), is a Brown Tortie
Retired January 2017
Once we find the purrfect home for Zhaklin, we will move her to the Retired Adults page.
In the meantine, enjoy the pictures of her lovely, healthy babies.

Below are two current pictures of Ms. Zhaklin. Since her spaying, she has blossomed into an absolutely gorgeous Siberian.


All of Zhaklin's babies, except for her first litter, were sired by our own Mr. Silver

(Her Last)

Once again, in the wee hours of the morning (0130-0430), Mr. Silver and Ms. Zhaklin became the proud parents of three babies; two boys and a girl. Babies are doing very well and gaining lots of weight every day. When there are only a few in a litter , there is always lots of milk to go around so they put on weight much faster. Nancy has started giving them celeb names for identification; Once selected the parents give us a name we use that one to further the socialization process. This will be Zhaklin's final litter.

29 March 2016

In the wee hours of the morning on 29 March, Ms. Zhaklin gave birth to three beautiful kittens. While coloring and sex is awfully difficult to determine this early, it appears that two will be Torties, which means they will be girls, and one Black/Silver we believe is a boy. Better photos to follow once their eyes are open. While we don't like to give up Jackie as a queen, it is time to retire her and let her live a normal life giving and receiving love with the "purrfect" parent.

16 February 2015

Ms Zhaklin gave birth to five beautiful healthy kittens early Monday morning. If you recall we had traded males with our cattery friend in Michigan. They took Mr. Silver and we took Mr. Red Bud for a few months. The plan was that since he and Izabella were both reds, our friend would be able to get a red female; however, we did not have much success between the two of them. We "thought" perhaps Red Bud may have been too young to know what to do; however, to our surprise he figured out what to do with Zhaklin. LOL

Litter Number Five

The Easter Bunny arrived at our home in the early morning hours when Zhaklin gave birth to four gorgeous healthy babies. Zhaklin's litters are always like a box of chocolates, you never know what colors and patterns you are going to get, and this time was no different. Mr. Silver was, once again, the father of these beauties.

12 November 2013

Not to be outdone by her cattery-mate, Zhaklin gave birth to six gorgeous, healthy kittens shortly after Tatiana finished giving birth to her last kitten. Maybe she was just being gracious and waiting for us to finish with Tatiana. Late afternoon and the evening of Tuesday, 12 November 2013 Zhaklin had her fourth litter; this was the eigth litter Mr. Silver's has sired here at Semper Fi Siberians.

19 June 2013

Mr. Silver and Ms Zhaklin had a litter of six beautiful kittens born on 19 June 2013, two girls and four boys. This was an "Oops." We had no intention of allowing Jackie to become pregnant so soon, but trying to keep lovers apart when the juices flow proved impossible with these two. We haven't figured out who had the ability to unlock the door to her room, but we "think" it was the crazy Australian Shepherd, Zeke. Can you imagine what it is like with nine kittens running around that room with all those toys? It's better than watching TV.

                                                        Fifi adopted Aneta & Karoline           Smokey is going home with Debra and family                 Rasputin adopted Vickie & Chuck

23/24 February 2013

Mr Silver and Zhaklin were the proud parents of a litter of two beautiful kittens born the evening of 23 February 2013 and the early morning hours of the 24th. This was Mr. Silver's very first litter he has ever fathered; it was Zhaklin's second. As best as we can tell at this early stage there ia one girl and one boy. Mom and kittens are doing very well; the kittens are gaining their normal one-half ounce per day. We allowed Mr. Silver to peak at the babies on day three, and he seemed to puff up his chest a bit, but then maybe I was imagining things!
