Playing is "Year Of The Cat"

Siberian Cats

Over the years that I have been in the US, people were always surprised when I told them that my cat Musya's breed was siberian. "Siberian?" they would ask. So I decided to make a page about Siberian cats, not yet popular in the US, but wonderful friends and loyal companions.

Here's some really cool stuff that even I didn't know before I did some research!

The Siberian Cat was first imported into the US in June of 1990.

This long hair breed originated in St. Petersburg (formerly Leningrad) Russia. (that's my hometown!!!!)

When Siberians were first introduced to the U.S., it was as a part of an exchange program as a result of which Himalayans were introduced to Russia.

Siberians are affectionate, loyal & protective of their humans; they are sociable and confident.

Considered by some to be the ancestor of all long haired cats.

Considered to be the largest domestic breed in the world.

Known to have an amazing jumping ability.

Here's a description I found at

If you're looking for a great big huggable, loveable, playful ball of fur, the Siberian Cat is an excellent choice! These large, beautiful cats are as sweet, gentle, affectionate and playful as they are powerful. They have a dense coat and long, bushy tail which helped to keep them warm in the cold climates from which they originated. Despite it's length, the Siberian coat requires minimal grooming as it does not mat like other long-haired breeds. The Siberian is a great choice for the cat lover with allergies - as they do not have FeLD protein in their saliva which creates dander, and are non allergenic to most allergy sufferers. These cats do require one important regimen - daily hugs and kisses!
