About The Siberian Siberians are Russian's native semi-longhair, with a triple thick coat and full ruff that only gets fuller with cold weather. The coat is a bit oily and water-resistant. They are bred in a wide variety of colors and patterns; colorpoint Siberians are known as Neva Masquerade.

Siberians are loyal, affectionate, and interactive. Their big hearts match their big size, and they love people and other pets. Surprisingly to some, they are active high-jumping daredevils. They must be trained early to accept regular grooming, as their stubborn streak can act against you if you need to get them used to it later in life! Never underestimate their intelligence; Siberians are problem-solvers who like to figure out how to get what they want.

Although some claim that the Siberian breed is hypoallergenic, there is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic cat. They produce less of the allergen-producing protein in their saliva and dander, so some people who allergic to cats may be able to tolerate a Siberian. Like any cat allergy, this may be highly individual. If you have a cat allergy and are considering a Siberian, be sure to discuss this honestly with the breeder.
Did You Know? Siberians are the working cats of Russia, like the Maine Coons are to the United States. There is evidence in literature and art going back 1,000 years of this magnificent breed.
