COLOURS & PATTERNS. The foundation cat for our cattery is Siberian male, born in 2002, World & European Champion Jonathan-Timange - Jonathan is black blotched - we fell in love with this pattern & started to work with classic pattern in all the colour varieties (blue, black, silver).
Our cattery was named after our 1st Siberian female & my beloved cat, the chief of our pride - FIFe Europe Champion VEILCHEN Prinzessin (born in 2003) - in English her name means Princess VIOLET & in Russian VIOLET means FIALKA - in the Veilchen Prinzessin`s pedigree - the model for the 1st standard of Siberian breed - the famous cat Roman; Veilchen Prinzessin represents in our cattery only Saint-Petersburg breeding lines coming from "Marcell" & "Bast" catteries. Veilchen Prinzessin made us fall in love with blue colours. That`s why almost all our cats of blue colour or carriers of dilution gene. BTW Mironova Olga S. in her book "Aborigiene Cats of Russia" says that the 1st cats that appeared in the territory of ancient Russia were of blue colour.
Today in our cattery we have a rainbow of colours: blue classic tabby, blue-cream torbie, blue silver classic with & without white, black silver with different patterns with & without white, black smoke with white, black solid, black classic tabby without white, black spotted with white.
BREEDING LINES of our cattery mainly are the old Saint-Petersburg lines, starting from famous Roman: "Marcell", "White Raven" & "Bast" (WACC), "Chingi-Tura" (WCF), "Bruno-Ange" & "Knyaz` Gvidon" (FIFe). Besides, in our cattery there are representatives of the breeding lines coming from other cities, towns & regions of Russia: "Laskovyi Zver`", "Adagio", "Slavicat" & "Serebrianyi Kliuch" (Moscow), "Sibirskaya Zhemchuzhina" (Kirov), "Sidimi" (Vladivostok), "Manchzhury" (Voronezh), "Urkis" (the Urals), "Tayozhnaya Skazka" & breeding lines from Krasnoyarsk (Siberia).
OUR BREEDING PHILOSOPHY. We try to gather in our cattery "Fialka" the best breeding lines of Saint-Petersburg & Russia, taking as a model for breeding the bright, charismatic, sophisticated & aristocratical type of Siberian cat - the best represantatives of this type we can find in "Marcell" lines (well-boned, huge, with high intellect of wild & rare colours). We are sure that aborigiene breed must be healthy: we use in our breeding programm the lines being out of HCM & PKD risky groups, our cats are tested negative for FELV & FIV at the Laboratory of Research Centre of Russian Medical Sciences Academy).

THE LIFE STANDARDS IN OUR CATTERY. We feed our cats only best professional food of the last generation: HOLISTIC & natural food. Our cattery applies only the very best veterinarians of Saint-Petersburg - & our kittens can adopted by new owner only with guarantees of the same life standards. At the shows the super condition of our cats was awarded by Special Prizes from club "Surok" (Finland) & club "Southern Countries Cal Club" (UK).
In our cattery a female with her kittens is kept in a separate room - in this case the other females can`t disturb her. Only when the kittens are 2 months old - they move to the common rooms of the pride. Starting from the very 1st days we control the development of the kittens, their weight, teeth changing & so on. We take a special care about every kitten. All our graduates are very tender & friendly cats.
