Prekrasne as we are today began in 2006 with the arrival of my first Prekrasne Queen. I had imported 2 cats previously but they proved disappointing and were spayed and neutered and placed in loving pet homes. I knew I'd found my girl when I drove to Los Angeles to pick up Candalise Onix Gloria. This striking girl came walking out of her carrier like she had lived with me her entire life when in reality she'd just gotten off a 20 hr flight from Moscow to Los Angeles. I was hooked!
Then came the big guy! Godomir Sibaris! Without him, I wouldn't be where I am today. This stunning, slightly wild looking boy came to me from Moscow as well. Sibaris has an amazing reputation, but back then they were really just at the beginning. Alex and Arina were my defacto mentors or as close to mentors as I could have more than half a world away.
Later I would welcome other great additions like Veksha Timange-Fialka, Asthera Eureka, and others. But it was this pair - Candy and Godomir - that started me on the path I am today.
Since that time, we have had some wonderful accomplishments and formed some wonderful relationships with other Siberian breeders both here in the states and throughout the world.
