due to high demands of our Kittens, our waiting-list grew extensively, waiting time might be more than 2 years
"Petra & Reinhard Nickel have had cats during their whole life.
It was always an important part of their life."
In 2016 they started breeding Siberian Cats under the name
Koschka = Cat in Russian language
This hobby venture now revolves around high quality cats with very personal attention given to the Queens, Kings & Kittens.
With their concept, more hobby, not mass production, they created a breeding cattery with a specific difference:
keeping all their Siberian cats in-house, privately pampered and treated as loved PETS.
Good opportunity: visit us North of Hamilton
and share cat lovers stories while meeting our Siberian Cats.
Corokoschka is with the "Traditional Blood-line of SIBERIANS" the only one in New Zealand and with the past 5 years experience we are very confident that you won't feel an allergic reaction with our cats.
Queen Cats, OLENA , HAYLA & PEARL aka Foxy, with King PASHA were imported from Australian breeder of Shemiaka who supplies the pure bloodlines of the traditional "Sibirskaya Koschka." LEO was born 2021 as a Corokoschka NZ Stud-boy.
We guarantee with this traditional Siberian Queens & Kings to follow the pure & most healthy version of Siberians without any other cross (Neva Sealpoint sister breed) in the DNA line.
Here you see the purest line with stunning pedigrees.
There is hope for allergy sufferers:
Many cat allergy sufferers ask whether they will be able to live with Siberian cats without experiencing symptoms of allergy.
Traditional pure-breed Siberians are known as the most hypo-allergenic cats of all common breeds as Siberians produce very low level of Fel D1 (protein in the cat's saliva) 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
" a face to fur test"
prior to making a purchase decision.
DU TO PERSONAL REASONS OUR FACE TO FUR TESTS ARE SUSPENDED TILL END of YEAR 2022
In Covid times: for families who live too far away we might send as 1st test some fur samples via mail and have a personal test later on place in time when the new kitten is expected in due time. In the last few years Corokoschka has had hundreds of couples, who suffered mildly or severe cat-allergies for "face to fur testing" with Corokoschka's cats.
Nearly all of those didn't react at all or minor only.
With many kittens re-homed, we are pleased, that all families are happy with their furry family additions.
It seems that our traditional bloodline Studboy and his Queens have perfect genes for low FelD1 proteins.
