About Us

Welcome to SwameyTails Cattery

Your premier location for friendly, healthy, gorgeous, well socialized, hypo-allergenic Siberian cats and kittens as well as grain free and gluten free Young Again Pet Food.

Our original sire:

4 Legged Diva Duke of SwameyTails came to us in the fall of 2010. He has now retired and is living with his forever family in Gregory, Michigan. Duke has given us many beautiful and wonderfully friendly kittens as you will see if you look through Kittens A-Z. We love you Duke, may you enjoy your life in retirement with your fabulous and loving humans!

Here’s our Queen SemperFi TrioBandito of SwameyTails…we call her “Trio” for short. Isn’t she gorgeous? She arrived the beginning of May 2012 and was bred by www.semperfisiberians.com born to Nadeah and Sunny on 1/26/12. Sadly, TrioBandito died in August of 2015. Our hearts still ache for her, she was our peace maker, made us laugh, and was quite the ‘talker’. When she died, she gave us her daughter, Frito Bandito, who is a living memory of her momma. Thank you TrioBandito, may you forever rest peacefully!

They are gorgeous, yet wild looking. Watch them as they grow on their own pages under Siberian Queens.

Our kittens were raised with our dear 13 year old Maltese Nick, until 9/11/13 when he quietly died in his sleep. Our hearts are heavy with this loss, as he was our constant companion. He was wonderfully patient with our kittens that many of you now have in your homes. Nick loved greeting all our kitten adopters when they came, especially the ladies, thinking they were here to see only him! :) Nick was tolerant of the kittens pouncing, playing and sleeping nearby him, He even helped train them in a dogs way of life in case they went home to a dog of their own. As Nick’s heart now is still…our hearts, hurting as they are, will carry him with us forever. Nick, you were a wonderful canine, loving and faithful, patient and adoring…..we love you! You will be missed!

If you came to visit us, you are sure to remember Nick greeting you, barking happily and sitting outside the car as we ran your allergy tests. He was a curiosity to the kittens, and being soft and warm, they frequently wanted to nap nearby. He will be missed by our adult cats and to the kittens who come after him…..we are sad for you that you didn’t have the pleasure of enjoying Nick’s company. 9/11/13 Our Maltese Nick died quietly in his sleep early this morning. Our hearts are heavy with this loss, as he was our constant companion. He was wonderfully patient with our kittens that many of you now have in your homes. As Nick’s heart now is still…our hearts, hurting as they are, will carry him with us forever. Nick, you were a wonderful canine, loving and faithful, patient and adoring…..we love you! You will be missed!We love you, Nick!

In January of 2016 Veniamin Black, aka “Pasha”, comes to us from Sullivan Siberians in Idaho. Pasha was originally brought from the Black Cattery in Russia by Tom Lundberg. We thank Andrea for entrusting us to take good care of this VERY outgoing Siberian boy. “Pasha is a cream spotted tabby with lovely green eyes. He absolutely loves to walk on his leash, hang out in the yard with us, sit by the campfire at night, and generally would prefer to be where the people are. He is absolutely the friendliest Siberian, greeting strangers and friends with passion and warmth, which are classic Siberian personality traits. He’s a wonderful traveler, content to ride along in the car, or fly on a plane. Brave, outgoing, and very strong we know he will impart his wonderful Siberian personality to his kittens. As a previous owner of Pasha (Liz) described him, “Pasha is passionate about everything he does.” Her words are absolutely true! His pedigree is impressive as well, Pasha has an astonishing 38 championships in the last five generations including: Grand European Champions, International Champions, Grand International Champions, and World Champions. His pedigree speaks volumes about his conformation.” We are excited to have him here with us.
