Siberian

Despite their size, Siberian cats are quite agile and like to jump to high places.

About the Siberian

The Siberian is a lively, intelligent, affectionate cat that is incredibly playful and likes to participate in family activities. They get on well with other cats, dogs and children and need plenty of attention from their family.

These cats can be untrusting of unknown people and don’t like to be stroked or handled by strangers. As a sociable breed, Siberians are not suited to being the only cat in a household.

Origins of the breed

The Siberian is a very old, natural breed of cat, which has been known in Russia for many centuries. They are probably related to the Norwegian Forest Cat, with which they have much in common, in that this cat is well-equipped to withstand the harsh climate of northern Europe.

They appeared at the first cat shows in the 1870’s. In the late 1980’s, some cats were exported to other European countries and also to the U.S.A. They were fully recognised by FIFe and TICA in 1996. In some registries, the colourpoint variety is known as the Neva Masquerade.
