   Life at Ja Ja   

We at Ja Ja (JAnice & JAmes) believe that the secret to a healthy family of kitties is for them to have plenty of fresh air. Here in Florida our kitties are in and out of the house (lanai) all day and every day. They love being out on the lanai watching the ducks, or seeing the fish jump in the canal. They never give up trying to catch the elusive green anoles (native lizards) and they enjoy running and chasing each other. We are cageless! Our kitties/kittens do not live in catteries or in separated rooms or in the garage. When born they are kept safe -- free from harm... as they venture out on their own, they begin to explore their new environment little by little. They are reared in a loving home atmosphere with a lot of personal touching, talking, and attention.


My private practice is in our home where they become used to children, adolescents, adults, etc., and are more socialized and used to different voices and many noises.


 Janice and James (Ja Ja) 


At around the age of seven-to-eight weeks, the babies develop self-confidence and begin practicing their running and jumping. They have the run of the house/lanai which is huge running all across the back of our home... 24 feet of sliders and five other rear doors lead to it... the kittens/kitties can come and go... I love living where I can bring the 'outdoors in' and the 'indoors out.' 


Life here at Ja Ja is wonderful....everyone is free to run and play....take naps, listen to classical music and/or other light easy listening/jazz music, and even watch a little television. (Their favorite channel - truly - is "Animal Planet"!)


We have many litter boxes around, which are picked up when we have guests.... and the kittens/kitties often cannot come to the parties!!!.. as they do indeed offend some guests who are not into multiple kitties at our 'Kat Haus.' or may complain of being allergic (though Siberians are represented as being hypoallergenic). When guests come for dinner, the kittens/kitties can create havoc as you can imagine.  In general, the kitties like flowers and candlelight, new teasers, paper bags, boxes, window seats, tree houses, and condos, food in general, catnip, and and all kinds of toys especially 'crackle' types.



                  We are in Florida....     

     Where the sun always shines   


Kitties enjoy watching the fish splash as they jump up out of the water and dive back (Mullets) or they just relax and just watch birds or anoles ... They have a great life. There are several gardenia bushes across the back of our lanai and the aroma is noticed by everyone including the kitties. The kittens / kitties just love being on the lanai to hear the noisy yet beautiful songs that the mockingbirds sing, chase anoles (lizards), and/or follow the ducks, Ibis, or Egrets. They play chasing each other, find toys, lie around, take naps within the aroma of the gardenias, feeling the warm, sunny breezes... They love the Florida climate with its warmth and continuous sunshine. I truly believe that the reason we do not have sick kittens / kitties is because they have a lot of sunshine and plenty of fresh air just about any time they wish.

Of course, they love being inside and nap everywhere... inside the jardinières, on top of the entertainment center, etc. Alternating between themselves, they sleep on our bed at night... they take turns and literally 'flop' here and there. 

We entertain a fair amount so when I have a dinner / bridge party, I do put them into kitty domains or they are stuck in our master bedroom for the evening....they do not mind. (In fact, the domains are on the lanai and are generally left open ... at will, they climb in and out of them.) These simple large sized catteries help to contain our kitties for a variety of reasons besides entertaining guests who do not particularly want to be with a zillion kitties. Some reasons for containment would be:

1.) a queen in season 2.) bathing and readying for a show weekend 3) kittens bathed and ready for a visit to see if they might be chosen 4) a kitten/kitty freshly bathed and ready to be collected by his/her new family. Mainly though, it is for   company, for example, guests invited to a dinner party (believe me, if the tables are set the night before with crystal and china then as one could expect… you're right... a disaster… ) Trust me, I've learned the hard way!

Once I had left a few roaming the house while I was busy cooking and I found my flowers on the table in disarray.
Having the kitties / kittens running around when we are getting ready for parties does not work. Once they tipped over an arrangement of flowers on a nicely set table and it had to be dismantled and the linen had to be dried and ironed. Also, my friends do not appreciate kitties on the counters, etc., up on tables, etc. They love plants and flowers. My plants and orchids are up on stands (nothing is really 'kitty-proof) or literally in gardens around the house.

When the girls are calling (i.e. are in season) they are separated from the others. They always have company and are not left isolated and alone. When a mating is desired, the future mom and dad are put together in a quiet, secure place. 

I also use the kitty domains when getting ready for the shows, or when they are not going to shows but are being bathed / groomed... where they can air dry in the breeze and stay nice from their bathing. Once dry, they are out and about again. We do not keep our kitties or kittens in separate rooms or the garage. In all, I am against caging or keeping kittens/kitties in captivity and in my opinion there is no cage large enough... they are markedly restrictive and I want my kitties and kittens to enjoy family living in freedom. 

Living here is truly a haven for them and I want my little princes and princesses to have wonderful homes where they are beloved and free to enjoy life as royals in their palace... Queen or King of the castle... LOL... just like they do here. 

Not only do they play with toys, they actually have their favorite buddies and pal around with them. They nap together and just hang out with their buddies. They do not fight but occasionally do have their differences. We have lots of kitty boxes, water bowls, and feeding dishes, so they do not have to fight for survival and the pecking order is minimal. With our mindfulness and watchfulness, this would be a behavior we would control anyway.  Yes, the kitties can swim!

  In the back of the lanai, gardenia bushes bloom continuously about seven months of the year.....the aroma when in full bloom  is glorious. The gardenia happens to be my favorite flower of all. I still have not been able to acquire the lovely perfume (eau de cologne) Chanel Gardenia... LOL. 

Beside the gardenia are Bromeliad gardens.  How lucky to be in Florida where flowers bloom year roun



Siberians love to to be on our lanai ... they love to be in boxes and baskets and often climb into my fish bowls (not aquarium type) or any nook and cranny ..... The Sibs and Muffins too, love climbing ..... and kitty condos and cat trees (specially made furniture for climbing) are ideal for them 


They love getting behind things and on top of shelves....on top of pillows, love being on rugs, laundry ready to fold, anything cushy, under covers, blankets, and are into cupboards, cabinets, and into my big pottery pots (fish bowls) etc. ... LOL! 


They are such adventurous little angels... so much fun !  

 They can really leap - called 'flying.'

 tel:  877-387-4564)


 please use my number when ordering:   #  10047464  

 ... Which is always available, as is plenty of fresh water in large, clean, ceramic bowls.  It is amazing to me as to how much water they consume and they even enjoy drinking water out of the pool.


 Supplements from  www.lifeabundance.com are their favorite treats. 

 Just shake the bottle and kitties and little tiny kittens come running



 At the the sound of the bottle being shaken... they come running, as they do   when they hear the snap of the 'Instinctive' can (Instinctive is a wet kitten/kitty tinned food). 




 adoption fees 

Kittens are nine hundred dollars. Older kittens, adolescents, are between five and seven hundred dollars....a fairly young retired breeder is usually five hundred dollars. Fees are negotiable.  Older retired breeding Siberians are available without a fee. Siberians live a very long life and can surpass age twenty-five. Fees do not include health certificates, interstate travel expenses such as shipping, and an airline carrier. Additional fees, such as micro-chipping, neuter/spay expenses, etc., are optional.

       What are Siberians like ?    

   Siberians are little angels with a zest for life. While certainly lap kitties,' their calmness as kitties is so endearing, making them prrrrrfect for the lap...... Siberians love to be loved and equally give back unlimited affection and love. Siberians are keen, smart, clever and curious (down-right nosy). They are playful and quiet but talkative and many have a very loud purring motor.  They get along well with our Maltese, the two parrots, Lucy and Magnum, and the other kitties. They come running and are always there to greet you when they hear the doorbell ring.....

They love life and enjoy company

 Ja Ja is proud to present 



   #1 Top Winning Siberians     


 Show Kitties (Siberian Breed) in USA (ACFA & UFO) 


 Quad Grand Champion Inspiration Erek of Ja Ja #1 Siberian in 2007 & 2008    


and his son, Grand Champion Ja Ja Maximilian #1 Siberian in USA 2011.........  


       This stunning, gorgeous 'Cameo-colored' Siberian was bred by Jenny Carter of England. Erek was the # I USA top winning Siberian for 2007 and 2008 and is now retired. Throughout his show career, he continued to wow the judges. Erek is a natural 'show-man' who loves the limelight. He was always 'up' for a show. Erek is unlike most kitties:  he is very-very human-person like, has enormous 'presence,' and is a very-very self-assured kitty. Always a gentleman, a great father to his kin and to other household kitties, extremely smart, and lovable to us.

It was with great regret when I learned that Jennifer Carter (England) of

Inspiration Siberians is no longer breeding kitties... My Siberian Breeders came from Jenny except for Leda, a Dauria Russian Royal from Dauria directly from Russia.


Inspiration Siberians continues to pass on not only their correct conformation, physical attributes, stamina, energy and good looks but also their lovely superb temperaments and dispositions... their personality cannot be compared... They are truly angels sent from above. Dauria continues to be a leader among Russian Siberian Breeders. Leda is a very strong foundation queen with amazing intelligence and personality........




  Grand Champion Inspiration Erek of Ja Ja  -- in the show ring with judge Doug Blackmore 



Showing Siberians 

We enjoy presenting our Ja Ja Siberians and Ja Ja RagaMuffins at CFA, ACFA, and UFO cat shows.  The kitten / kitty is judged according to the breed standard.  The kitten / kitty is always well groomed and deemed to be in good condition.  Erek is full of personality and is a real showman. He loves showing and getting the judge's attention, and putting on a 'Cameo Appearance'.

 About Our Siberians





   Quad Grand Champion Inspiration Erek of Ja Ja  




Erek is a handsome Grand Champion and the #1 winning Siberian (ACFA & UFO) for 2007 and 2008.  He has the best of the best temperaments and personalities. He is an extrovert and loves to put on a show. Erek talks and chirps, and loves the babies... he is ever mindful of them and loves to cuddle with them.  Erek was imported from northern England, where his breeder was Jenny Carter. In 2008, Jim visited England and returned with Anoushka, Hector, and Felichita all from Inspiration (Jenny Carter, Breeder).



 Imported directly from Russia


   Champion Dauria Leda    


Champion Dauria Leda was imported from Russia. We are very happy and lucky to have her, as she was not registerable except through TICA. With a lot of effort, I was able to track down her breeder, Tatiana Mareeva, who was able to help me get her World Cat Federation (Felinological Association of Russia) pedigree in English. Thus, I am forever grateful to Tatiana.  




When Tatiana made that possible, Leda was registered with ACFA, CFA, & UFO.

I believe these are the ultimate cats. They are comparable to our RagaMuffins in the sense that they mature very slowly (3½-5 years) and live to be 20-30 years.  (Often this is determined by safety features and contributing diet... we feed an all-natural diet especially designed for felines).

Siberians are 'forever young' and are always ready to play. They have an extremely loud purr and chirp (chirrup). They are very busy talking and interacting with me. Like RagaMuffins, the Sibs are very affectionate and want to be with people. They are independent, but like to follow and are always at the door when I arrive back home after going out. They love toys - especially fresh catnip knotted into a sock and teasers.
