We are really enjoying Sparky!...and he is true to his name. He zips around really fast and is quite a
jumper/climber. A bundle of energy. He never stops moving and Jim describes him as having a 3-second
attention span. He is absolutely gorgeous and sweet. Very cuddly. Boba Fett was very unhappy on his arrival
and we had to be very cautious the first few days. Three days ago I started to let them have some very closely
monitored visits in the same room and slowly built on that. Today they are very good buddies and are eating from
each other's bowls and Jim actually saw them eating side by side (one hard food;the other soft) on the same mat.
Boba Fett is being very tolerant of Sparky, especially when he pulls on his ears...he basically then sits or lays
over him. They play non-stop. We are delighted!

We couldn't let the new year pass without wishing you and your family all the best for 2011. We are leaving for Florida in a
few days and will leave little Nightmare with Kristen's mother. Her mom has really become quite fond of our little pet and we
jokingly say we hope she gives him back when we return from our vacation. Nightmare has given us so much entertainment with his
cute antics. He is an absolute joy to live with. Many thanks.
From: Amanda Gyles, Milton, Ontario - April 2010
I hope your Easter was a good one. I was just admiring my cats and thought I would send you a quick photo. Not too much
has changed with them. Rio (our silver makerel) is still Ella's baby. Wherever she goes, he follows. At night time, she
says, "Rio! It's bed time" and he sleeps beside her and does not move until she gets up in the morning. She brings him
everywhere and he is equally as loyal to her. He thinks he is a dog and we all laugh. Ella plays fetch with him. He
carries around this little ball and drops it around her and she throws it for him. They really love each other. She
couldn't have picked a better cat. Everyone comments on how beatiful he is.
Remi is still my baby and thinks he is a baby. He sleeps in the baby swing and bouncy chair when he is not on me or Bren.
Since I had the baby, and my time is take up with him, Remi will go to Bren, who always obliges any request. I think
Bren secretly loves these cats! Remi still has a very mellow personality and is happiest when he is getting love from anyone.
He is very social. Anyway, I hope all is well and that life is treating you well! Take care and talk soon!

I just wanted to let you know that Rosalina is doing fabulous. She is 4 months old now. She is the best thing that has
happened to our family. We all love her very much and she is such a pleasure to have. She is very cuddly, playful and is a
happy little kitten. Yes, she loves to be around us all and she does greet us at the door when we come home. She used her
Clever Cat litterbox right away. We can tell that she was well cared for and loved before she came to us. Thank you for
raising such a wonderful kitten.
From: Elizabeth and Jessica, Scarborough, Ontario - March 2010
I’m e-mailing to let you know that you’ve bred the most beautiful, affectionate, gentle, well-tempered, well-behaved and
mischievous kitten ever. Benji is a gem. Jessica and I both absolutely love him. I’m still amazed that we can own a
kitten given my cat allergies.
Benjamin is an absolute delight. He responds to his name, he’s never away from either of us for more than a couple of
minutes when we’re at home, he follows us down the stairs and if we stop he stops and if we start walking again he starts
walking, he grooms our hair on a regular basis (sometimes I only know because I wake up with hair spikesJ), Jessica carries
him like a baby and he loves it, and the two of them regularly play “hide and seek” as well as ‘tag’. In addition, I’ve
taught him to ‘sit’ for a treat!
What a joy he is. He’s been to the vet twice for his shots and both times the vet has said what a health, lovely cat he is
and commented that “he’s a good man”. Thank you so much for the love and care you bring to breeding kittens.
From: The Yates Family in Timmins, Ontario - October 2009
I believe Patrick has already sent a message confirming we have the gorgeous Nalla, but I wanted to send a personal thank you.
We just got back home today and I must say Nalla has been a great traveller over the past two days with us in the car.
She is so very well adjusted, relaxed and yes indeed purrs a lot! So far, she has slept through the car rides and
played through the evenings while we attempt to sleep. Very cute.
The kids absolutely love her. How can we all not.....she's just an all around beautiful kitten! Thank you!
From: Rachael in Oakville, Ontario - 2009
We can't believe that Abigail is going to be 6 months old on Wednesday and that we've had her for 3 months already!! She's
growing so fast and becoming such a little 'lady'! She's the sweetest, most loving cat and we just love her more than words
From: Arianna Mercuri, Calgary, Alberta - May 2009
Hi, just wanted to let you know how much we love our kitten, which the children named "Catnip". My husband always
preferred dogs, but he has fallen in love with Catnip and plays with him as much as the kids. This kitten is a
wonderful addition to our family and I wanted to let you know how much we love him.
From: Shelly McIntyre, Toronto, Ontario - August 2008
The work you do with your kittens really makes a difference Lynda! Our kitten is
such a job. He literally has not stopped purring since we brought him home. He came
out of his carrier and looked aroound and was already purring and playful and
loving. We are so happy with Max and having so much fun!
He is eating and drinking and using his clevercat litter box (you can
get them a PetSmart in ON now). I am so impressed! We love him so very much.
From: Diane Penfold, Pointe au Baril, Ontario - August 2008
Rufus is a little doll. Not only is he a beautiful looking cat,
his disposition is wonderful. Everyone who comes here and sees him and
what he's like wants to take him home. In fact, when my daughter's cat, who
is getting old passes, she is definitely getting a Siberian. My Dad came
over and now he wants to get one. We just love him so much. He's been with
us for a month now and we wouldn't know what to do without him, even if he
wakes me like clockwork at 3 every morning for a little lovefest. What a rascal.
From: Erin McCaffey, Nanaimo, B.C. - October 2007
Wonderful news! Our beautiful cat, Muffin, survived the move from Toronto, Ontario
to Nanaimo, B.C. with no difficulty whatsoever. She took one look at the new house,
sniffed it out and rubbed her face up against the furniture, then proceeded to make
herself comfortable and nap away the rest of the afternoon. She now spends endless
hours looking out a picture window and enjoying the birds which fly around
our yard. What a change for her - a highrise condo to a house with her own backyard,
complete with entertainment.
We are all doing well. Peter is very happy in his new job and the children have
adjusted to their new school and have started making friends.
I hope your cattery is going well and you are still raising wonderful kittens for
others to enjoy.
From: Joe and Amanda Richmond, Winnipeg, Manitoba - March 2007
It was really nice meeting you the other day, Lynda. I couldn't believe my luck that I
was required to go to Ontario on business and was able to pick up my new little kitten
and take him home myself. He looked so helpless in his cat carrier, even though you arranged
for him to have "all the comforts of home" inside. I was a different story when I got
home, however. He was a little shy for the first couple of hours. Then
he took over the house and we have all been waiting on him ever since.
I can tell by the way he reacts that he was well taken care of in your home. He is
very social, loving, and is used to having his belly and back rubbed each day. What a
life he must have had at your house. And rest assurred, he will have the same life at our house.
Many thanks for your kindness and help. It was really appreciated.
From: Brian Goodman, Fonthill, Ontario - December 2006
Great job with your kittens, Lynda. Griswald has settled into his new home with no problem.
Best wishes for the future of your cattery.
From: Rebecca and Syd Herrman, Toronto, Ontario - August 2006
We have had Andy for two months and I thought I would drop you a line and let you know that
he is doing very well. He has adjusted to living with us with absolutely no problem. We have
a duplex (with an indoor staircase) and my in-laws live downstairs. Andy has taken to
visiting them every day, much to their delight. We love him and don't know what we would do
without him. Thank you for raising such a beautiful kitten.
From: Pierre Lamarche, Montreal, Quebec - February 2006
I named my kitten "Cannelle" which means Cinnamon in French. I thought it was a good name
for a red cat. He has a wonderful personality.
Thank you very much for your kindness and support. Merci and bonjour de Montreal !
From: Ellie Crow, Rochester, New York - March 2005
Hi! I was up Saturday with my friends Rachael and Andy who are adopting Ruble. Thanks so much for letting
us spend so much time!! You have a lovely place and the cats are all so well cared for. It was
really a wonderful experience and I wish I was adopting one too!
Also, your website is extremely
easy to use and very informative. We read the cat care book in the car on the way home and found it
very helpful and informative as well. Take care!!
From: Michelle, Kingston, Ontario - December 2005
Gustav and I would like to know that we are thrilled to have Tia in our home, and wanted to thank you
for raising such a wonderful kitten! She has not had any accidents, we appreciate that you have litter
trained her so well. Also, she slept soundly last night in her room (bathroom adjacent to my bedroom).
We didn't hear a peep from her all night. I woke around 3 a.m. to take a little peak at her and she was
curled up in her little bed. We entertained ourselves for hours last night with the toy she came with
from Mindeelyn. She much prefers it over the others we bought for her. She has been eating well and we
noticed that she really enjoys a good pet on the back end (she sticks her rear end up!). Thanks again
ever so much! We will keep in touch!
From: Janet, Buffalo, New York - July 2005
Thank you for letting me adopt one of your kitties. We are a household of four, three of whom have allergies
to cat fur, but after six weeks not one of us is showing any symptoms whatsoever and we are thrilled. We are
totally in love with our beautiful Macy and as each day goes by we love her even more. One of my children, who
tends to be shy and quiet, has become Macy's best friend and follows him around like a dog much to his
We are truly grateful for this kitten, and for the time you took when we contacted you.
Your kindness will never be forgotten.
From: Debby, Sudbury, Ontario - December 2005
Just a quick update about Vladimir. We absolutely love him to pieces. He is adorable and great company.
He talks to us when he wants attention. He is so cute and loves his tree and his toys. I will email
you some pictures when we get a chance. Thanks again for such a wonderful addition to my family.
From: Elaine P., Hamilton, Ontario - December 2005
We adopted a beautiful white Siberian from Mindeelyn in January of 2005. As with all new pet owners,
we were very apprehensive, not only because of allergies but also because we were concerned about how
he would react to the transition to our household.
Our fears were short lived, however, for when we opened his carrier door, out sauntered Lexus who promptly
rolled over on his back begging for a "bellyrub". It was love at first sight. So with one hurdle down we
waited for the allergies to kick in. But days passed, then weeks, and not even a sneeze. Since this time,
Lexus has fitted himself into our home with great ease and spends his days ruling the roost. We can't
even express the pleasure he has given us through out the year, being greeted at the door when we get home
from work, or waking up in the morning to find him snuggled down in our bed. He is a constant companion and
friend and someone we can't imagine ever being without.
Thank you Mindeelyn for bringing Lexus into our lives, we are forever greatful!
From: Cherie, Halifax, Nova Scotia - November 2005
Maggie is doing excellently. Her surgery is fine, and she is the happiest most loving kitty ever.
She has been having a blast. We love her dearly and her tempermant is the best of any cat I have known.
We could not be happier with her.
We have been recomending your cattery to anyone who will listen,
so don't be surpised if you get more inquires from the East. I am not sure if all Siberians are this
affectionate but we love it. I hope all is well with you. I see you have more kittens for sale.
Maybe in the future when we build up some extra money we may get Maggie a friend.
From: Carin S., Toronto, Ontario - September 2005
Peaches is turning out to be a very pretty little cat. She's dainty and sweet. I never could have
guessed how much one would actually bond with an animal. Peaches is first and foremost "mommy's cat",
she gives me kisses, litteraly, on my nose! She loves to snuggle and I have never heard a cat purr so much.
I can't tell you enough what a miracle this feels like to me since all I've heard all my life was
"stay away from animals". I can now have her close to me all the time and I never get allergic!
As soon as the spring allergies stopped I have been totally fine! ! ! I don't even bother
with the Allerpet anymore. I brush her often (which she loooooooooves) and there are absolutely no symtoms.
If you have customers that are wondering (like I did) about allergies, please feel free to use my story!
From: Manisha, North York, Ontario - September 2005
It makes my day so much brighter to have Chloe's company. She loves to curl up on the desk when I'm
working. We can't help but smile when we see her. Chloe is beautiful and I am really glad you let us have her.
She's got a lovely personality and has such musical meows too. Truly adorable. You can definitely feel
proud of your breed lines.
From: Sally, Whitby, Ontario - September 2005
Took Heidi to the vet today - Vet checked her over - all well. She really charmed the vet
and staff - they thought she was really sweet. She is getting so comfortable around here - in our laps and
sitting beside us all the time, at least when she's not playing. Vet gave her a play mouse - she has been
dragging it everywhere, pouncing on it, and comes to us and meows when it gets stuck under anything and she
needs help. She has stolen our hearts completely! She has a lovely personality.
From: Samantha S., Mississauga, Ontario - September 2005
Just thought that I would drop you a line to let you know how the kittens are doing! They have both
settled in really well and absolutely love my 2 children. The cats love nothing more than sitting on
their two laps whilst becoming familiar with "Treehouse" children's TV! ! It's amazing how quickly they
grow! They have had their booster vaccinations at the vets and everything was fine. I have had absolutely
no problem with allergies so it must be true about them being hypo-allergic.
From: Teri Matthews, Gander, Newfoundland - September 2005
Hi Lynda, I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful kitten you raised for me. I have owned several cats
in the past, but none of them have had the temprament or beauty of our new Siberian. And thank you for your
hospitality, patience and professional manner in which you handled this transaction which I know caused more
problems than usual for you since we were coming from such a far distance and travel arrangements had to be
changed more than once.
I saw first hand from a friend who lives in New Jersey the quality of animals you raise, and I
knew I would not be satisfied with any other kitten. I only wanted one of yours. Again, many thanks for
everything you have done for us. Our kitten is a truly magnificant animal.
From: Lisa M., Guelph, Ontario - September 2005
Vasya is doing great and is enjoying his new home. Thanks so much for all your hard work;
I really appreciate it. He makes me sooooo happy, I just love him to pieces!!! Take Care.
From: Andrea Wolstenhulme, Gatineau, Quebec - August 2005
Just wanted to give you a big thank you for all the effort you made to make sure we got just the
right kitten for our family. I have never seen anyone work so hard to please her customers.
I am really impressed and really appreciate all your efforts on our behalf.
From: Kelly Marie, Mississauga, Ontario - August 2005
Thank you again for such a WONDERFUL and precious addition to our family. Zoya is perfect.
From: Sandra Peterson, Detroit, Michigan - March 2005
Thank you for letting me adopt one of your kittens. When we got her she was most beautifully
socialized and friendly. I can't wait to get my next cat from you.
From: Kerstin, Winsen (Luhe), Germany - March 2005
The kittens are really beautiful. Give Elfin and here babies some kisses. Nice to see that one girl
got her name from her grandmom.
From: Delores, Keswick, Ontario - February 2005
Oh, they are s-o-o-o adorable as they are growing! Can't wait to hold and touch!!
From: Kelly Marshall, North Brunswick, New Jersey - September 2004
Your kittens are soooo incredibly cute! It's neat how there are so many different colours in the litter.
I must admit I had difficulty making up my mind but after having chosen Harold (my cat) I believe I got the
best one in the litter (ha!ha!). Anyway, I wanted to say thanks for this gorgeous little man who now lives
with me in New Jersey. And thanks, as well, for the beautiful pictures you put on your picture trail so I could see
how much he was growing during the first weeks of his life. When I picked him up, I felt like I knew him
From: Charles and Kathy Teeple, London, Ontario - September 2004
We own 2 siberians and we love them. I am so glad to see we have a siberian breeder in our home province.
We enjoyed your cat tour - you have beautiful cats.
From: Brian and Jill Huffma, Charlottetown, P.E.I. - August 2004
I wanted to drop you a line and let you know how happy we are with our new kitten. We named her Scoopie, and
Brian and I agree she is the most beautiful little cat we have ever seen. She has adjusted quickly to our household
and now greets us at the door, follows us around like a puppy and sleeps cuddled down with us at night.
I have praised you and your cattery to my friends and family, some of whom are now interested in Siberians
not only because of their hypo-allergenic fur but because they have all fallen in love with Scoopie. You
may be receiving more inquiries from our island in the future.
Many thanks for your kindness and for our wonderful little Scoopie.
