Tomorrow we are going to go pick out which Siberian Kitten we want and are so excited! We chose this breed because they are hypo-allergenic.

UPDATE; Here is the little girl my son chose. She is spunky and full of personality already! We cannot take her home until she is 12 weeks old.

We spent all afternoon with them and my son had no reaction at all. Which was surprising considering this was a home filled with cats and dogs!

We reviewed the contract which included a return policy if there are any issues. Oh and the mama cat is 4 years old, not 8 months. As someone else stated that was just when the photo was taken.

Thank you all for you input and guidance so I was able to ask good questions.

We have a cat that just showed up here that makes that first picture look like a short hair.

I have never in my life seen such a fluffy kitty. It has the sweetest nature too - never stops purring.

Kitten overload! Sigh. I still remember the kittens days. So much energy. I had to constantly keep an eye on her. She would find herself inside things and would not be able to get out. We 'lost' her on Easter Day, all day, and finally found her under our waterbed, trapped. And this was after tearing apart the house. I am too old for a kitten. But boy they are darn cute.

Thanks for all the wonderful replies.

My son is also allergic to cats which is why we chose this breed. They are hypo-allergenic in that they do not produce the chemical in their saliva that causes allergic reactions.

My son is leaning towards the first super fluffy kitten, but I told him to not choose for sure until he sees them in person so he can check out their personalities.

As to the expense, They start at $1000 and go up. If my son wasn't allergic we would get a FREE kitten from the shelter, but since we can't get any ol cat, we are willing to spend the money to get this one.

You should always get kittens in twos. But in this case I'd take all four!

THank you ladies!

Gsquared, they are all Siberians. Here is the info on her:

Arebeska, our eldest Siberian Queen, came to us from Tomsk, Russia. She has the most impressive pedigree of all our Siberian cats. There are 24 champions in the last four generations including Grand International Champion, World Champions, International Champions, and European Champions! She is a traditional black classic tabby Siberian with gold/green eyes. Her coat, though not as long as Ledenets' and Belle's is incredibly silky and soft. All of her ancestors were traditional Siberian black tabbies and her kittens are highly sought after.

We looked into getting a siberian cat, but when we visited the breeder my allergic kids started reacting like crazy. Hives, itching, eyes swelling shut... It wasn't pretty. lol. No kitty for us, no matter how hypo-allergenic they are supposed to be.

I love how fluffy they are. Such pretty cats.

The kittens are very cute but you've been fed a crock about them not causing allergies.
In general breeds there is no such thing as a cat that does not cause allergies, and the term "hypo' itself just means lower, not none.
All cats produce the fel d1 protein (the main one responsible for allergies although there are a couple of others).
Different cats produce the protein in different amounts and kittens produce less than adults.
Therefore a person can be very allergic to one individual cat from a breed who produces a high amount of fel d1, and less allergic to another individual cat who produces less.
The only way to know would be to live with the cat or to have the cat tested.
But if a person is very sensitive to the protein, then any amount the cat makes will induce a reaction.

There has now been one truly non allergenic cat produced by Allerca and that will cost you close to $7,000. The dogs are $15,000

All Siberians have not been shown to make less fel d1 than other cats, in fact some Siberians tested made 60x more than the average although around 20% did make less than the average (note: *less* not *no* fel d1)
Also the silver colored ones have been shown to produce the most protein out of all the Siberian colors.
If that breeder told you they do not make the protein at all, then she flat out lied to you.

So you'll get the cat home as a kitten your son will seem to be fine, but as the cat grows and starts to produce more fel d1 and the levels build up in the environment, then his allergies will probably kick in - what's the plan for the adult cat when that happens?

Peas-okay; Queues-not so much
