Siberian Cat


The Siberian is a domestic cat breed that has been present in Russia for centuries.[3] The full name of the cat is the Siberian Forest Cat[2][dubious – discuss], but it is usually referred to as the Siberian or the Siberian cat.[3] The cat is an ancient breed that is now believed to be ancestral to all modern long-haired cats.[3] The cat has similarities with the Norwegian Forest Cat, to which it is likely closely related.[3] It is a natural breed of Siberia and the national cat of Russia.[citation needed] While it began as a landrace, it is selectively bredand pedigreed today in at least five major cat fancier and breeder organisations.

There are claims that it is hypoallergenic and produces less Fel d1 than other cat breeds.[citation needed]



Known to be an exceptionally agile jumper, the Siberian is a strong and powerfully built cat, with strong hindquarters and large, well rounded paws. They have barreled chests and medium sized ears, broad foreheads, and stockier builds than other cats.[1] They also have a slight arch to their body.
