Tunies Siberians Anastasia of Semper Fi

Anastasia (Ana) is a Brown Classic Torbie

Ana came to us from our fellow breeder and friend, Andrea, at Tunies Siberians in Minnesota. She wass best buds with Magdalena; they were forever chasing each other around the house and wrestling. If I did not know better, I'd think Ana and Izzy had to be related somewhere in their pedigree as they were so much alike in temperment and personality. Between the two of them I don't know who was more devilish and always into everything. Tell me you can't see the devilishness in her eyes. Of course, I mean that in a good way, she pushed the Siberian personality of being open, gregarious, curious, fun-loving, and friendly. We were excited about adding a "Classic" back into our cattery. All of Ana's babies were sired by Mr. Silver. Ana will continue her breeding career by going “home” to Tunies Siberians and the loving care of her breeder, Andrea.

Beginning at 2330 Monday and ending at 0400 Tuesday, Ana provided us with six beautiful healthy babies, the perfect size litter. Kittens are now up and about and hard to keep them in their birthing room. Here they are with Nancy's names. She always thinks of poetry in motion when she looks at Ana with her classic swirls and angel wings on her back (see second photo above), so she named them after, what else, but poets. Remember, these are the names Nancy gives them for ID purposes. Once selected, the pet parent gives us their real name so we can begin socializing using that name.

Starting around 11:30 PM on Saturday, 27 June, Ana went into labor on our bed (yes, I said our bed) as we were lying there reading. Almost immediately out came number one. The birthing box had been prepared, but she chose otherwise, albeit we were able to quickly move mom and her baby to the box. Several hours later she became the proud mother of eight squirming, crying, healthy, beautiful babies. What a joy it is to watch this life-beginning event. No matter how many times we participate in the birthing process, it is always a moving experience to witness.There are four males and four females -- a perfect 50/50! Ana is the ideal mother -- she will not leave the room where her babies are located. All have gone to there forever homes.
