"Petra & Reinhard Nickel are passionate Cat Lovers. Cats have always been a part of their life."
In 2016 we started planning to breed Siberian Cats under the name COROKOSCHKA (Koschka = Cat in Russian) while continuing to live in our paradise "Bushland Park Lodge & Retreat". This hobby venture now revolves around high quality cats with very personal attention given to the Queen, King & Kittens.
Whangamata in the Coromandel Peninsula is very conveniently located for other cat lovers between the Far North / Auckland, Hamilton & Tauranga as a quick time-out or getaway trip to visit the Corokoschka place.
Good idea: visit or book your stay in the Lodge/B&B and share cat lovers stories while meeting our Siberians.
Queen NATUSHA & King PASHA were imported from Australian breeder of Shemiaka who supplies the pure bloodlines of the traditional "Sibirskaya Koschka." We imported this Queen & King especially to follow the pure & most healthy version of Siberians without any other cross in the DNA line.
Many cat allergy sufferers ask whether they are able to live with Siberian cats without experiencing symptoms of allergy. There is hope for cat-allergy sufferers. Traditional pure-breed Siberians are known as the most hypo-allergenic cats of all breeds as Siberians produce very low level of Fel D1 which could allow allergic cat owners to own a cat without suffering from sneezing and coughing and red eyes. Of course, allergic reactions can be triggered by a variety or combination of factors in individual environments and personal tendencies (so nobody can provide a guarantee) but Corokoschka Cattery can offer the opportunity of a test-run prior to making a purchase decision.
Bushland Park Lodge & Retreat is an ideal place to have Breakfast or lunch with the Cats & Kittens to test yourself for any allergic reaction.
We have built two cat sun-rooms (one inside and one outside) especially for interested kitten buyers, so that guests can play and have breakfast with the kittens and perhaps make their choice.
