The earliest known reference of Siberians are from 1000AD. In September of 1989 a group of breeders from Leningrad and Moscow applied for the registration of the Siberian Cat to the SFF. The breed then became registered on August 6th, 1990 (Certificate №1). At the same time the colourpoint Siberian was also registered as a "unique color variety" of the Siberian with a second name "Neva Masquerade" (Certificate №2). In the United States, the Siberian was not accepted for registration by TICA until the 1990's and the CFA until 2000. Siberians are still a fairly rare breed to find, though they are rapidly gaining popularity.
TICA describes the Siberian breed as a "strong, powerfully built cat with strong hindquarters helping them jump exceptionally high. They are a slow-maturing breeding reaching full magnificence at about 5 years of age". If you love the Norwegian Forest cat or the Maine Coon cat, you will love the Siberian. Siberian cats have dog-like, extroverted personalities and beautiful bushy fur. And we feel the Siberian cat is superior, as most individuals with cat allergies will not react to the Siberian.
The main cause of cat allergies in people is FelD-1. FelD-1 is a protein with unknown function and is produced by the skin and by salivary and lacrimal glands of all cats. It is transferred to the cat's fur by licking and grooming. Then dried saliva and dandruff are spread from the cat hair as small airborne particles into the surrounding environment. Siberians, however, produce less of this protein than other cat breeds. And this low level of FelD-1 makes them low-allergen. Many of the individuals that adopt from us are allergic to cats.
FelD-1 levels vary with each individual cat. But the Siberian breed has an overall far-lower level of FelD1 than other cat breeds. We have not found that sex is related to FelD-1 levels. What about color? Some research does indicate that tabbies have the lowest levels of FelD-1 and that cats with white fur or very silvery fur have the highest. There is not enough stable and consistent data to confirm this, however. Reality about FelD-1: every single cat has a different FelD-1 level. In a litter of five, some kittens may be classified as very low and some as average. Therefore, just because you are allergic to a particular Siberian, does NOT mean you are allergic to ALL of them. Typically people with mild cat allergies can comfortably be placed with most all Siberians. However, the worse the cat allergy, the more important to get a cat that has been FelD-1 tested to be “low” or “very low”. Tested Siberians cost more. We do not offer testing at this time.
Our beautiful, friendly, curious, even-tempered Siberians are affectionate and intelligent. Our Siberians come from researched & registered Siberian breeders in Russia.
We raise our Siberians with love, by hand, in a clean environment. Siberians are GREAT with other pets such as dogs and cats and rabbits and turtles. They're sweet and gentle with children and even babies. They are very easy to groom (despite their longer coat) and frequently lick and clean themselves. They are also a very low-shedding breed (despite their longer coat). Full grown they typically average 11-17lbs.
