Meet Apollo: our new Siberian Kitten


Apollo is our new Siberian kitten. I never thought we would have a cat because my husband is very allergic to them. As a Christmas present, he researched hypoallergenic cats and this breed came up and now we have a cat. He is still somewhat allergic, but only when he handles him, and it's much better than most other breeds.


We got him when he was 13 weeks old, so we missed out on this cuteness of his early weeks (pictures from the breeder):





But now we have a more mature kitten, who is just as adorable:





He has already inspired me to do a bunch of sketches of him cat napping:

You'll probably see a lot more of these sketches in the future.

  1. Dang, he is SOOO freaking cute, it makes me want to get one. Son1 is very allergic, too. Glad your hubby's allergies have not flared with Apollo around!

    1. I'm probably only ever going to get him when he's sleeping because he moves around too much otherwise.
