Siberian Cat Breed

Siberian Cat PhotoIf you’re looking for a great big huggable, loveable, playful ball of fur, the Siberian Cat is an excellent choice! These large, beautiful cats are as sweet, gentle, affectionate and playful as they are powerful. Siberians have a muscular mid-section and longer hind legs, making them powerful leapers (look out knick knacks!).

They have a dense coat and long, bushy tail which helped to keep them warm in the cold climates from which they originated. Despite it’s length, the Siberian coat requires minimal grooming as it does not mat like other long-haired breeds. The Siberian is a great choice for the cat lover with allergies – as they do not have FeLD protein in their saliva which creates dander, and are hypoallergenic, or not an allergy problem to most allergy sufferers. These cats do require one important regimen – daily hugs and kisses!
