The Siberian cat is thought to have originated 1000 years ago in Russia and was recently introduced to the USA in the early 1990's. Siberians are considered the largest domestic feline because of it's large and dense bone structure. Similar to a Maine Coon Cat.
Its coat is semi-long haired to long hair and comes in many colors and color patterns. The dander produced by these cat's (FEL D1) is measurably less than that produced by most domestic cats and is considered to be hypo-allergenic. Far more people with cat allergies can tolerate the Siberian cat quite well.
Siberians are also known to be dog-like. They are more dependent on human interaction and tend to bond closer than other feline breeds. This also creates a situation that provides for easier training. Siberians are powerful cats, but rarely injure their human friends, even in play. They purr very loudly and love to head butt their favorite humans. They are not very vocal but quickly establish communications through body language. Because of the obvious reasons above and many amazing others, the Siberian cat and kitten are rapidly becomming the pet of choice for many families.
We wanted a cat but my son has asthma and allergic to all animals and would have terrible reactions to them. I spent a lot of time researching for a hypo-allergenic cat (if possible) We already had a hypo-allergenic dog and my son didn't respond negatively with her so there had to be a cat out there somewhere. I discovered this breed but wasn't very hopeful that it would work out. We bought a 9 mo old male and to our delight we had no reactions at all. So we decided to get a female and breed her so we could pass on hypoallergenic kitten to our family and friends our great find. We love these cats so much we just recently adopted another female. Our wish to you is to find a loving member of your family and not suffer any allergic reactions. Siberian hypo allergenic kittens cat are the best pets around.
In addition to myself breeding my
mother is working alongside me to breed back home in York ME.
Siberians express the three natural types of feline fur: guard hairsm, awn hairs, and down. These three layers protect the cat from the Russian weather extremes, and provide a hardy, easy to care for coat today. The fur is textured but glossy, which decreases the occurrence of matting. A once a week combing is enough to keep the coat in good condition.
As with most other cat breeds, color varieties of the Siberian vary and all colors, such as tabby, solid tortoiseshell and color point are genetically possible.
Most breeders, enthusiasts, organizations, and the main registries such as TICA and the CFA accept the color point coloration as being natural. Color point Siberians are also known as "Neva-Masquerade" Nava for the river where they are said to have originated, and masquerade, for the mask-like coloration.
Siberian cats shed twice a year. The first shedding is at the end of winter. The winter shedding is instigated not by a change in temperature but by a change in day length. Many Siberians will experience a less intense "mini molt" at the end of the summer season. I have noticed with my cats that there is very little cat hair around, unlike other breads of cats where you find hair everywhere.
After much thought, my husband and I have decided to transfer to Jacksonville Florida. I will continue to breed in Florida and my mother with continue to breed in York Maine.
