Zhivago Siberians breeder of
(Siberian Forest Cats)
Neva Masquerade (Siberian Forest Cat)
We are a registered breeder of Siberians.
Siberian cats are a Russian national treasure there are even mentioned in Russian fairy tales and children books. When the cold war between the Soviet Union and the United States ended, the doors opened for the Siberian cat to be exported worldwide.
The Siberian is a medium to large cat with the overall appearance of good physical condition, strength, balance, power and alertness, with a sweet facial expression.
Siberians are a natural breed and reflect the climate in which they developed, they have a dense medium to long, water repellent triple coat.
The Siberian’s heart is as warm as his homeland is cold. He loves people and wants to be near them, so expect this affectionate cat to follow you around, including to the bathroom and to “help” you with all of your reading, TV viewing, computer work and meal prep. Sitting in your lap while you comb his fur may well be the highlight of his day. When you come home from work, he might not have a martini waiting, but he will be pleased to tell you all about his day in quiet, pleasant trills and chirps, interspersed with a few meows and purrs.
The Siberian has a bold temperament and nothing much ruffles his composure. These characteristics make him an excellent choice for a family with kids. He is happy to live with other cats and cat-friendly dogs, too, as long as they recognise that he’s in charge. Introduce pets slowly and in controlled circumstances to ensure that they learn to get along together.
As with most other breeds, colour varieties of the Siberians vary and all colours, such as tabby, solid, tortoiseshell and colour point are genetically possible. The Siberian cat breed does not have any unusual, distinct or unique fur colourations or pattens.
Most breeders, enthusiasts, organisations and international registries such as TICA, WCF and ACF national registries and members of the Siberian Cat Breeders Australia accept colourpoint as being natural.
