The earliest known reference of Siberians are from 1000AD. In 1989 breeders from Leningrad & Moscow applied for the registration of the Siberian Cat to the SFF. Registration was approved in 1990s (Certificate №1). At the same time the colourpoint Siberian was registered as a "unique color variety" of the Siberian with a second name: "Neva Masquerade" (Certificate №2). Siberians are still a fairly rare breed, though they are gaining popularity.
TICA describes the Siberian breed as a "strong, slow-maturing breed reaching full magnificence at about 5 years of age". Siberian cats have dog-like, extroverted personalities and beautiful bushy fur. We feel the Siberian cat is superior, as most individuals with allergies will not react negatively to the Siberian.
Our beautiful, friendly, curious, even-tempered Siberians are affectionate & intelligent. Our Siberians come from researched & registered Siberian breeders in Russia. Our Queens & Kings are tested yearly for FEL-V, FIV, HW. Our Queens & Kings are given yearly boosters for FVRCP+FeLv, regularly de-wormed & have current rabies vaccines.
We raise our Siberians with love, by hand, in a clean environment. Siberians are very easy to groom (despite their longer coat) & frequently lick and clean themselves. They are also a very low-shedding breed (despite their longer coat). Full grown they typically average 10-17lbs.
Moubani Cats is a TICA certified breeder and operates under the TICA Breeder Code of Ethics. Moubani Cats also meets & exceeds TICA Cattery Standard Requirements. Our cats & kittens are raised in-house. We handle them & love them everyday.
The main cause of cat allergies in people is FelD-1. FelD-1 is transferred to fur by licking & grooming. Dried saliva & dandruff are spread from cat hair as small airborne particles into the surrounding environment.
FelD-1 levels vary with each individual cat. The Siberian breed has an overall far-lower level of FelD1 than other cat breeds. Typically, people with average cat allergies can comfortably be placed with most Siberians.
We have found that neither sex nor color is related to FelD-1 levels. Some research indicates that tabbies have the lowest levels of FelD-1 & cats with white fur or very silvery fur have the highest. There is not enough stable & consistent data to confirm this, however. Reality about FelD-1: every single cat has a different FelD-1 level. Typically people with average cat allergies can comfortably be placed with most all Siberians.
We do not offer testing. And we do not offer fur or blanket samples, as this is not an accurate way to test for this protein. Three saliva samples are required to accurately test for this protein & it can only be done after the specific cat is 4 months old. The cost of this test is expensive & we have found that since 85% of allergy sufferers do fine with Siberians, it is not worth the extreme additional cost for us to offer “tested” Siberians. Many of the individuals that adopt from us are allergic to cats.
All of our Siberians are registered with TICA. Your kitten will have a 8-month Genetic Health Guarantee specific to the Siberian breed. You will receive the TICA registration to your kitten once spayed/neutered.
A non refundable deposit is required to reserve your kitten. Once you place a deposit, you will be locked into the listed price at the time of placing your deposit. WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS ON DEPOSITS. Please review our Home Page, Queen's Page & Reserve A Siberian Page.
We host quarterly Open House visits. See below. This is the only way to visit us. The health & care of our Siberian’s is a far higher priority for us than trying to sell our cats -or- accommodating visitors that are exploring the breed. Please research the Siberian breed to learn more about Siberians & see if they are a good choice for your needs & lifestyle. We suggest using sources that are experts on cat breeds, such as TICA, as opposed to "opinion articles".
The only way to visit is at an Open House. We limit visitors to serious buyers only because it is stressful for our cats to be constantly "viewed"; it is also not in the health interest of our cats to be exposed to new germs. We rarely show kittens - unless we have kittens over 12 weeks of age. We will let you meet & hold 4-5 of our adult cats. We allow up to 4 people at a time to our cattery in 25min slots. Fill out the contact form above & let us know how many people you would like to bring & we will get back to you.
