Dainah Rico is a proud wife, mother, entrepreneur, breeder of quality Siberian cats and Straight Egyptian Arabian horses located in North Georgia near Chattanooga, Tennessee. The cattery name, Cartier, was first registered with TICA (The International Cat Association) and CFA (The Cat Fancier’s Association) in 2008. Currently our Siberian cats and kittens are registered with TICA although we have the option to register in both Associations. Our State of Georgia Department of Agriculture License is updated yearly and is current.
Cartier Siberians strives to provide our clients with a well tempered, healthy, quality companion kitten that meets or exceeds the Siberian cat breed standard. It is our belief the Siberian cats used for breeding and the environment they are raised in contribute considerably to provide you with a good companion. We chose our breeding cats, Traditional Siberians and Colorpoint Siberians, with this in mind and invest the time and money to ensure we are breeding with healthy animals by using all resources available to us including genetic testing, a close relationship with our veterinarian and ongoing overall care including nutrition for our Siberian cats and kittens. In addition, our Siberian cats and kittens, as well as the kittens we are raising for you, often go with us to our office and pet boutique, Rico Pet Boutique, and are exposed to traveling as well as interaction with the hustle and bustle of a busy day filled with noise, people and dogs, Bear (Cocker Spaniel) and Ober (Gernan Shepherd) to be specific.
The Siberian cat breed is known to have lower Feld1 than other cat breeds and the hypo-allergenic quality of the Siberian cat is absolutely a note-worthy characteristic of the breed; however, we believe the overall Siberian cat breed standard including type and temperament should be considered to ensure kittens are bred to not only meet and exceed our client’s expectations but to further the breed for generations to come keeping as close to the Siberian breed standard as possible. Even though we strive to meet the Siberian cat breed in regard to the outer appearance, it doesn’t mean that every Siberian kitten born meets this standard or should be used in a Siberian cat breeding program. It is unfortunate for the Siberian cat breed that there are many new and established Siberian cat breeders breeding pet quality Siberians. We are keepers of the breed and responsible for its preservation.
It would not be responsible to alter the best breeding stock; therefore, Cartier Siberians retains the right to keep any kitten at any time.
