Testimonials

June 2021,
My sister Nicole and I have always wanted a cat of our own since we were little, but we were always unable to due to our severe allergies. Discovering Corokoschka Siberians was therefore a dream come true for us. Petra and Reinhard are two of the most lovely people who were patient and dedicated to helping us find our furry friend. We attended numerous allergy tests to success and once our litter and kitten was confirmed, we received very frequent updates on mum and baby. You can really feel the love Petra and Reinhard have for these cats - they are raised as family, with plenty of secure indoor and outdoor space and are fed with the best food which we have continued since "Peach"  has come home. Our "Peach" is the most beautiful, adorable, spunky and loving girl. She has captured the hearts of everyone she’s met with her quirkiness and brings us constant joy and laughter. We have nil to minimal allergies towards her even now that she has grown up (we can even bury our faces into her fur!), and we find ourselves constantly agreeing that bringing her home was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. If you’re on the fence - get a Siberian, they are majestic and loving creatures, and there’s no better than from Petra and Reinhard from Corokoschka. Thank you so much to the both of you, you’ve brought such joy into our lives.

January 2021,   My wife and I had the privilege of adopting ‘Elsa’, a hypoallergenic Siberian Forest Cat from Petra and Reinhard. As my wife is allergic to cats, Petra and Reinhard were kind enough to invite my wife for an allergy test which involved spending a lovely afternoon with the kittens in their lovely home. From there on, they were very clear in their communication about the timing of the birth of the litter, vaccinations, desexing and pick up. Being a first-time cat parent, I was nervous about raising a kitten in an apartment. Petra and Reinhard went above and beyond to assuage my fears with regular checks-ins to help ‘Elsa’ settle into her new home. Elsa, on day-two in her new home, is strutting around as if she owns the place. It is clear she’s been very well socialised to people.  I cant think of two people who are better suited to raise the most social cats I have ever seen than Petra and Reinhard. This lovely couple are clearly passionate about raising these kittens as their own. You only need to visit their cattery to understand why. I would recommend them to people with cat allergies but would still love the company of hypoallergenic cats. Thank you, Petra and Reinhard, for all what you’ve done for us. Dxxx, and I are so happy for the memories we have and will continue to have with ‘Elsa’ thanks to the two of you.

April 2020,... My partner and I were looking into getting a kitten for months. We narrowed it down to a Siberian due to their dog like qualities & hypoallergenic coat. It was a quick, easy search to find Corokoschka. I reached out and they were so helpful and accommodating! They matched us with our kitten Hazel (Haze) based on personality and our home life. They went the extra mile to make sure she would be the perfect fit for our home & sent regular updates on the mother and kittens. Because they raise the kittens with the family, I was very happy with how socialized Haze is! She is beautiful, playful, friendly and determined.. everything we were looking for. They were very professional & we are so blessed to have worked with them.

‘My partner and I have adopted our lovely boy Rakı Basil from Corocoschka. Can't explain how happy we are to bring home a new furry family member even though my partner has a mild allergic reaction. He is such an adorable, affectionate, and playful kitten. 

 

We also have to thank to Petra and Reinhard for being so informative about the adoption process. You were always so prompt to respond our emails. Last but not least, we can see that how well our boy had been taken care of in his first three months of life. We are so glad that we have chosen you as a breeder.’

We have adopted a beautiful, playful and affectionate little Siberian boy from Petra and Reinhard.  He is everything and more than we hoped for.  They made the adoption process very special with regular updates and photos so we could watch him grow.  Petra and Reinhard are a charming and loving couple and their love for their Siberian cats shows.  We would recommend anyone that wants a special fur baby to adopt a Siberian kitten from them.

today we've got a mid-term visitor, the new kitten forever home lady who will give our Siblings Mini Pasha' s  a wonderful paradise home in few weeks time.  She gave in our hands a very unique own-hand embroidery present whilst waiting the 12 week's period. This touched us in our heart. Thank you Lynn... your Mini Pashas will be in your home-paradise with you mid February.

Lynn wrote to Corokoschka : ....every stitch was done with pleasure, hugs and appreciation for you both.....You give so much of yourselves to love, care and support your purrfect family and nurture the wellbeing of the majestic Siberian, it is the very least I can do to give you something small back.......you're pretty special.

Just an update on our little Mika, after half year Mika is in our home. She is such a delight, everyone who visits are so surprised at how affectionate she is to everyone. She is allowed outside during the day with her GPS tracker, and we know she doesn't travel far, just the back yard and neighbours homes. She hates the rain and bolts for the house if she is outside when it starts.  Then she finds one of us for a cuddle and a rub down. Our allergies are very low, and myself and Harry almost completely clear, with an occasional minor flare of itchy eyes or sneezing.  We recently went away for a week on holiday and my friend came to look after her.  She is also a cat lover, but like us is allergic to cats and dogs.  She had no symptoms with Mika and treasured her time looking after her, even getting night time snuggles. 
Anyway, she is adored by all of us and we can't be happier to have this little bundle of fluff here.

We are just absolutely loving having our gorgeous little girl. Our daughter really liked the name Molly so we went with it.. it suits her fun and playful nature. She has settled in so beautifully. She's eating really well and using the litter box without fail. She and our girl have become best buddies.. Molly sneaks into her room and sleeps on her bed most nights. And she has made a little need for herself in my husband'soffice and spends most of the day with him. I get lots of cuddles on the couch in the evening too. We feel so lucky. I haven't had any problems at all with allergies.  Totally fine.

Our new 2 Kittens in our family, "Groot and Luna", are very happy and settled. They've become very affectionate and relaxed.  We are so glad we got 2 kittens, they have a lot of fun playing with each other and cuddling up to each other. Our children with friends play with them very often.

They like high places, so as well as their cat tree, they love the wooden bar above our kitchen bench and are very interested in learning how to make coffee. They also love the mantlepiece above the gas fire.  We laugh, because there used to be an ornament on that mantlepiece and one day we heard a crash and came out to find the ornament 'fallen' to the floor, and Luna happily stretched out where the ornament had been.

We have just recently adopted Ziggy, a Siberian boy cat from Petra and Reinhard.

We thoroughly enjoyed the process of adoption and the way Petra and Reinhard took such great care of their amazing animals.

On the initial visit to their Lodge we were warmly welcomed by P&R and given the  tour of the awesome environment they have created.  Once our kitten was confirmed they sent us regular updates with emails and photos.

Petra and Reinhard are truly unique as far as breeders concerned. Their care, passion and enthusiasm for these animals is so apparent that you forget it's a business and to be quite honest they do it more for the former rather than later.

As a result have ended up with a social, happy, playful and truly gorgeous cat that causes no allergies to my partner and is the perfect addition to our family. 

Thank you Petra and Reinhard.

My partner and I got one of the litter A kittens from Corokoschka. My partner is very allergic to cats - sneezing and itchy eyes whenever there is a cat nearby for about 5 minutes. This does not happen with our Corokoschka kitten at all. It sounded too good to be true for us at first and we were very greatful that we were invited to stay in the Bushland Park Lodge. After playing with the cats and kitten all day we were confident that we could bring one home. We also enjoyed stay at the Bushland Park Lodge. Petra & Reinhard are so kind showing us around the retreat. They also make DELISIOUS food - every bite was a miracle. Our kitten only goes to the toilet in his litter tray and he magically knows only to scratch on the scratching posts. We have become very happy cat owners.

Petra and Reinhard at Bushland Park Lodge have made us feel like a part of the Corokoschka family from start to finish (and forever!). From the very first contact they have been informative and friendly. Our stay at Bushland Park to meet the kittens and the Nickels was so enjoyable (amazing hospitality, we will definitely be back for another stay!) and they couldn't have matched us with a more perfect kitten. We absolutely love the new fluffy addition to our little family, and highly recommend Corokoschka!

Our experience adopting Alfie from Petra and Reinhard at Corokoschka was nothing short of fantastic. We are so happy to have welcomed little Alfie into our home, having thought that we would never be able to adopt a cat due to my partner's allergies.

It was always a pleasure communicating with Petra and Reinhard who kept us well informed as the kittens grew up with photos, emails and videos.

It is clear that for Petra and Reinhard this is a hobby venture and a passion rather than solely a business. The way the facility is set up is nothing short of "cat paradise", and the love and affection they show towards all of the cats has produced very well socialised, toilet trained and absolutely beautiful cats. We feel so lucky to have one of their kittens. The cats essentially have free reign of the house (trap door included), and the most amazing outdoor run that connects to the house.

Our first "allergy test" was truly a weekend in paradise. Alongside breeding cats Petra and Reinhard also run a luxury lodge (with glow worms on the property!). We stayed one night at the lodge at a very discounted rate and dined in courtesy of Reinhard (the chef!). The whole weekend was an incredible experience. We were astonished that my partner didn't react at all, having reacted to literally every previous cat he had encountered prior with sneezing, red itchy eyes and misery in spite of anti-histamines! They were such attentive hosts and welcomed us into their home to meet the cats in their surroundings, which for us was the best possible allergy test. They are such genuine and kind people who are so passionate about their job.

I wish them both the best with future litters and recommend them highly to any interested parties.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Reinhard & Petra and their beautiful Siberian Forest Cats. They are dedicated to breeding these majestic cats. And I am so happy I was able to get my beautiful Siberian kitten (Alexandra Sasha), from their first litter of Siberian kittens.

They are dedicated to keeping their cats well-bred with the purest of bloodlines maintained. Reinhard and Petra treat their Siberian cats as part of their family. 

And I hold them in the most positive regard.
