Siberian Cat

And from Russia comes the Siberian cat breed, a attractive native cat from the taiga of Siberia, a forested area which has a subarctic climate which gave this cat it’s long, thick, protective coat. The cats have been in Russia for some 1,000 years and often figure in Russian folktales.

Like all cats, these were prized for their hunting ability by householders and shopkeepers alike, as they kept mice and rats well away from stores of grain and other foods.

Siberian Cat Information

Siberians were first brought to the United States in 1990 and were recognized by The International Cat Association in 1996. The American Cat Fanciers Association accepted the breed in 1999, followed by the Cat Fanciers Association in 2006. The breed is gaining popularity because it has a reputation for being hypoallergenic—which may or may not be the case, depending on the individual person.

Siberian Cat Breed Information

This cat typically weighs 8 to 17 pounds — and sometimes more.
