Cat Breed Description

Siberian cats have a thick triple semi-longhair coat with a full ruff that gets thicker in the winter months.The coat is a bit oily and very water-resistent, possibly an evolutionary trait that helped it deal with harsh Russian winters.

The Siberian personality is often described as dog-like, as they tend not to be shy with strangers. It is a loyal, affectionate, and playful breed.

Although some claim that the Siberian breed is hypoallergenic, there is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic cat. They produce less of the allergen-producing protein in their saliva and dander, so some people who allergic to cats may be able to tolerate a Siberian. Like any cat allergy, this may be highly individual. If you have a cat allergy and are considering a Siberian, be sure to discuss this with the breeder.
